BFA Thesis Project | Publication 1: The Meaning Intended.
A design-thesis experiment that explores the ambiguous nature of Mac Miller’s lyrical expression(s). This experiment was the result of a year-long sustained research project for the final year of my BFA at Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design.
The objective of my research practice during the final year of my BFA was to differentiate the meaning of lyrics intended by a singer/songwriter, and the meaning that is understood by the audience. This was evidenced through a linguistic analysis of the artist’s contemporary lyrics and the subjective responses to those lyrics visually explored through typography, abstract-shape and form.
How can an in depth study of contemporary lyrics as language, and the subjective responses to those lyrics be expressed visually through shape, form and typography?
