Last night, I started watching the supplied DVD in preparation for the first essay, labelled as TMA 01. It’s a small, 750 word essay, about how material things, such as street furniture, CCTV and buildings, are built, installed or made to favour one group over another.
Thing is, I didn’t actually find it all that useful. It gave insight into the local businesses and business owner’s opinions, which would be alright if I was doing a business degree, or even town planning (at one point, they discussed a bus lane), however, nothing really came up about material objects.
I do have two more sections to watch, so hopefully they’ll give more relevant information to help with this first mini essay.
