Ad/Graph Thesis – Pursuing a Topic

Last week, I explained that I wasn't certain what topic I'd explore for the thesis project. I was hoping that by this point, I'd begin generating ideas, and possibly gravitate towards one.

Some of areas of interest that I've considered:

Space Exploration
The accomplishments that mankind has made have always filled me with wonder and awe. From Voyager 1 leaving the solar system to Rosetta landing on a comet, we've gone farther and discovered more than many would first believe, and I think that's worth showcasing.

LEGO
This was a large and formative part of my youth, and I love its endless applications, from functional appliances to artistic works. This might be better suited as a medium than as a topic, however.

Found Objects
I've always had a strange obsession with collecting random objects that I find, like bottle caps, miscellaneous electronics, broken car parts, and much more. With concepts like upcycling, DIY, and giving value back to something, I think a project on found objects would be very interesting to explore.

Voice Acting
This area has always intrigued me, too, especially since I've lent my voice on a number of occasions to other students' projects. Much like LEGO, however, I don't know how well this area lends itself to the objectives of the thesis project.

I'm gravitating toward Space Exploration (no pun intended), and I've already checked out several books on the subject. By next week, I plan to conduct a great deal of research, and hopefully start reaching out to others for additional advice, opinions, and knowledge.
