Create a Typology supported by a word statement with at least 2 annotated bibliographies using the Harvard author -date style.
What is a typology?
A typology is a set of associated objects or states – often they appear similar , identical or occasionally
only tenuously related, but most importantly, a typology creates a new context in which the content
acquires new meaning. A typology is one specific conceptual strategy. Your typology should be based

Conceptual typological approaches should be revelatory i.e. the total should exceed the sum of the par t
s: the outcome should be surprising or at least contrary to expectation.
Part B: Create another conceptual strategy of your design, supported by a word statement
with at least 2 annotated bibliographies using the Harvard author -date style. &
Examples of other Conceptual Strategies include:
● Sampling by time
● Sampling by space
● Word based-pun
● Design your own strategy
● Do not create another typology
Support each of your conceptual strategies with a 300 word statement and references that follows the
● An indication of the ‘idea’ under consideration or that has been revealed ● A description of your strategy or process, documenting the ‘rules’ or process in a way that would
allow the reader to reproduce the strategy
● An annotated bibliography of at least 2 references cited in the Harvard author -date style with an couple of sentences explaining why the source is relevant to your work. How does the reference cited support and inform the choices you have made? How does it lend authority to what you have done? One reference may be of an artist’s work, the other should be an academic article discussing the ‘idea’ explored in the visual strategy. Refer to the lecture notes from week 10 for an example of an annotated
