Creative self-awareness

Chris de Beer

pp. 49-68

Socrates's idea that the unexamined life is not worth living, holds particular meaning when choosing the lens of autoethnographic research. The narrative presented in this chapter deals with my growing self-awareness as creative designer, lecturer, and artist that manifested during two collaborations. During the first collaboration at a local art gallery, I juxtaposed my creative work with that of Marlene de Beer, my partner and colleague in the jewellery design programme at a university of technology.
