I’ve had some research ideas for my final major project floating around my head for sometime now but I finally decided to concentrate on Africa, a broad subject I realise! I am particularly interested in Sub-Saharan Africa, the contrasts of rural and city life and the changing culture. It is near impossibly not to be drawn in and inspired by the amazing adornment which has existed in their culture for hundreds of years. For me, it is really important that I find my own voice within this theme, to express an alternative viewpoint. Unfortunately I can’t afford to go do any primary research in Africa! So I’m doing as much as I can from the UK. I’m really excited about this project so far, hopefully it will lead me to something interesting!
