    Have just received the task to be done..
    A. Illustrate your mundane everyday routines in their spatial settings.
    B. Illustrate your 6 best skills in action and in space (cooking, furniture making, typewriting, dancing, playing sports or musical instruments, robot making, mechanics…..etc).
    C. Illustrate your world “upside down”.

    Whichever theme you chose the drawings should be imagined from your everyday life, and not drawn from photographs. They should relate to a space, place or object in its context and should explore multiple points of view (visual and conceptual) at various scales.

    The six drawings should consist of:

    - 3 x 5 minute drawings
    - 1 x 15 minute drawing
    - 1 x 60 minute drawing
    - 1 x 90 minute drawing

    Anyone advice?

    yeah so i have also applied this year and got the same task, i dunno it is very vague, i took it to my art teacher and she also said it was vague


    but kinda simple just draw what you do in every day normal life ( my chosen choice) such as washing your teeth, washing the dishes, bla bla bla. obviously the level needs to be ace it isn't intended for the normal artist the aim of this is to 'cherry pick' the best of the bunch here the bartlett is so well known.

    Im doing the same task but with mundane tasks I really can't think of any "thoughtful" subjects which is what they've asked for...

    I think I got assigned my task sooner than most people. It was due by nov. 2nd. I chose to do my world "upside down" since it seemed to be the most interesting and I figured mine might stand out a bit since I live in Miami and drew a few really Art Deco pictures. Still waiting to find out if they're making me an offer

    Same here, I did the upside down task- warping perspective with a bunch of mirrors in places around London. It was a pretty savage task to work with, but the other ones seemed dull

    Yeah the other choices seemed off putting and I definitely didn't want to draw myself doing anything. I was wondering how far I could push my interpretation of upside down since it was in quotations and I didn't anticipate how hard it would be to make sure you couldn't just flip the page upside down and fail the entire task. I did one picture of the Miami skyline reflection upside down in an eye that I was really happy with. When did you submit yours?
