Up to Snuff#102: Build something up and work from it
By, Afua Serwah Osei-Bonsu
While assembling a collection of design work based on poverty titled, “That poor old girl,” it occurred to this author to utilize the collection of designs within literature as a research, to infuse writings with good research. One may build something up and work from it.
The ideas were for example how within garment one may “scrap for parts” and cut out the collar or zipper or cuffs of an old or worn-out article of clothing. Following the “poverty” research within design, the idea is to create some kind of “Dickens” styled piece of literature. “Build something up and work from it,” means to compile even design research as a later basis for literature.
