Can you define what you mean by "narrative" work? Thanks

Hi Cyd a very goo A wearable object that contains a commentary or message which the maker, by means of visual representation, has the overt intention to communicate to an audience through the intervention of the wearer. (Cunningham, Practice based PHD, 2007) But I’ve also asked silversmiths to enter so the object does not have to be wearable. For me it can be anything that tells a story or was inspired by a story etc
