After looking at it from another perspective and seeing why objects are designed the way they are. I may look at the different approaches people take to design and the different outputs resulting from them.

After mapping ideas it became apparent that some areas interested me more than others. Personal experience lead to a new focused approach. It lead me to target the areas of; energy, materials, recycling, security, snowboarding and aesthetics because I have previously thought, felt or seen problems relating to or around these areas.

My fourth year of study and my year long self directed project. I am hoping my earlier project will aid me in staying on track and that the different techniques I have used over my previous years study will inform my research and development stages in the project. I am currently researching a number of different areas and mapping them out looking for a subject on which I will base my assignment.
