Not sure where to begin your research? Need a little inspiration? Don't discount YouTube as an effective tool in the research process. Engaging with content from designers, artists, media outlets, critics and theorists on YouTube can incite our curiosity, shift our perspective, and encourage the formation of new questions, original ideas, and possible solutions.
