The project report will run alongside the studio project itself. It will provide a clarification of the practical work that the students have undertaken. The report can consist of several different modes of discourse, each of which will have different, yet overlapping, functions. These might include a descriptive account, consisting of developing ideas, processes and products; a more poetic discourse that that may be analogous to, or have structural affinities with the practical work. This report will project the whole body of works as a coherent compositional whole. Critique of the work and its development will also be the part of report. It will be a narrative that will locate the work in relation to relevant aesthetic, technical, theoretical, philosophical knowledge
