*CHECK & UPLOAD ALL WORK BY TODAY: Please check the new categories and make sure you are uploading ALL of your work correctly. Many of you have posts that do not open the images when clicked, which is due to an error in uploading – you must create a gallery with your images. Please make sure you check the Uploading to WP page especially points 7, 14 & 15 (the last one breaks down how many columns you should have for specific categories). For your Waste Awareness and Change a Habit projects, we need to see your weekly process of 6-10 spreads uploaded online in the correct Category as well as in your class drop folder.

1: Your Waste Awareness Project:
During this long weekend, continue photographing your daily waste production. Process your images.
Write/edit your text and refine your typography.
Select the size of your book, considering the cost of printing.
Select the paper(s) you will use for your book. Think ‘reuse, repurpose, recycle’ for your book materials.
Refine your book layout and typography.
Presentation: 1) a minimum of 10 final photographs of your waste (processed: color corrected, masked, etc.); 2) a first draft of your ‘page-by-page’ layout (thumbnails) of your entire book (as I demonstrated in class). 3) refined design of five spreads (two facing pages) of your book, with focus on your typography and layout. 4) a selection of paper/materials you will print/use in your book.
The page to page layout is one or two sheets maximum, where you roughly visualize your table of contents. Thumbnails example (these can be done by hand or in InDesign):
2: Change a Habit Project:
Select one idea to refine and present in the most compelling way, with materials, sketches, words and images. Refine the paragraph of the idea, and bring photographs of (or the object itself) that you are planning to refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, rot and/or repurpose. Also bring a rough production plan.
Class structure: Individual meetings

ADD REQUESTED ITEMS TO WANTED TRASH LIST
Continue & Refine work (see expectations for Monday 02.12.18)
Focus on content generation, do one or two more full days of trash documentation. Refine photography and drawing methods (drawings can be ink-prints, tracings of items, annotations, charts and graphs). De-manufacture trash items into parts – separate plastic from aluminum, from food waste. Begin to compare weekend and weekday trash habits. Refine your system of categorization.
Formalize your presentations. Include references and clean up your designs. Show multiple variations
Expand your copy : include more text, time stamps, locations (could include coordinates). Bring in facts from your research. You could begin composing stories about your trash.
Change a Habit project: Make a schedule for executing of your project idea. When repurposing objects, limit extra items or parts you might add. Try to use what is already available, be aware of your choices of materials.

Project #2A: Junk Battle—Final Project: Ideation Phase / Concept Development
Junk Battle! is a book comprised of two parts: Your Waste Awareness project and Change a Habit project.
Your Waste Awareness:
The project documents the waste you produce in 7 days. There are many kinds of waste we produce which include organic, plastics, paper, glass, metal, clothes, e-waste, hazardous, etc… Through words, drawings, diagrams, charts, and photography you will document the waste you generate every day, for days. This content will be processed and designed into the book.
Change a Habit:
Conceive of a project based on the following stages for a more sustainable lifestyle: REFUSE, REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE, ROT and REPURPOSE. Your project can focus on one stage or all. A project can be a simple as choosing to ‘reduce’ the amount of plastic you are using, or to ‘rot’ by starting a compost, or you can ‘repurpose’ some trash you found in the UCLA waste facilities.
Document the process to create content to design into the book.
Homework: Due Monday 02.12.18
‘Your Waste Awareness’ Project:
Document at least one full day of the waste you produce—Photos, drawings, text. Select a couple of objects and explore various styles of photography, drawing and text. Select one object to present 2 variations of a) photographic style, 2) drawing style and 3) copy style. The copy of your object should include: Object description., materials/ kind of waste, location, date and time collected. You can also add a short story. Present each variation on a letter size sheet. Also, bring one full-day of your waste documentation, this can be unprocessed or processed with your selected style. Digital presentation.
Change a Habit:
Bring 2 or 3 ideas of projects you would like to do. Articulate your ideas with words and images, by writing a paragraph of the idea and bringing photographs of the objects (or the objects themselves) you are planning to refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, rot or repurpose. Digital presentation.
