Through the exhibition and the narrative essay, I made sure that I had the perspective of the reader/ viewer in mind. The placement of the little details in the exhibition was very critical in bring the readers’ attention and carrying the ideas to the understandings of my exhibit to the readers. Visual logic was incorporated to allow the viewer experience the visual exhibition as a real life exhibit. The slides were designed as if the viewer was standing in front of the information on the wall. The transitions between the slides included the movement in the exhibit. The visual and movement aspects of the exhibit truly allowed the viewer understand that the author did not only had the informational part of the Curated exhibit but also the perspective of the audience from the presentation aspect of the exhibit. As I was writing my narrative essay, I was able to analyze my curated exhibit as an unbiased viewer and describe the reactions and significance of the little details that were analyzed in the exhibit.

With the development of all of these aspects in writing, I was able to create two successful works at the end of the semester; The two featured artifacts of this portfolio are the Curated Exhibition and the Narrative Essay. Without one skill in writing, I would have not been able to successfully persuade the readers to enjoy and agree with my message to the public in the strong Curated Exhibit, and I would have not been able to analyze sufficiently to describe details and the thought process of the exhibition as an unbiased viewer in the Narrative Essay. Because of the known-new chain, the connection between ideas and sentences (the flow of thought) is shown throughout the Narrative Essay and the connection between evidence in the exhibit, locking everything into place for comprehension and understand of the author’s thinking process. With the combination of my understanding of a viewer’s position, it really formulates the presentation and the essay for the audience than for myself, the author.
