Research Essay – illustrations optional

I’m using Participatory Action Research and involving my fellow students and as the essay concerns textiles and tee shirts I am making a series of them.

The First Tee Shirt

This is meant to reflect – in a mildly humorous way – a (my) student’s response to the essay question and the related lectures and seminars.  Awkwardness, confusion, evasion, false starts, dead ends and misunderstandings, alongside some insight and realisation of the task ahead.

Tee shirt is white cotton, print made using giclee (ink jet) and iron-on transfer paper.

I wore this tee shirt on the afternoon of February 11th, eliciting a number of responses from fellow students, mostly positive, some baffled. I didn’t attempt to quantify these, just listened.
