• How this process helped focus your research/essay direction.

This process has made me understand how the historical views have changed over time and how there used to be a meaning/deeper understanding of the ‘self-portrait’ where now they are taken for publicity

• The relevance of these ideas and process for you when making visual texts in the field of art or design practice that you are most interested in, or currently undertaking in Studio Papers Include MLA captions, in-text citations and bibliographic citation for written

because it shows me that the meaning of an image can change due to people’s perspectives and viewpoints change, but a visual text can also change these perspectives/viewpoints over time.
