Critique as critical thinking is something that I haven’t really thought about. I guess it should be common sense but I always thought of it as getting other opinions and presenting your work. I take what people say into consideration but in all honesty, at a final critique I am usually done with making that work and therefore the comments end up doing nothing for me. I’ll listen to some and apply it to the next project but all in all, I usually use critique as a way of validation or the opposite.
This reading makes me realize I need to think more deeply about what my peers say and what my professors say. In critiques so far this quarter I have felt frustrated. No one says much or they say I need to do more when I feel like I am doing a lot. But maybe this means I just need to do more critical thinking on my own first and be open to the thoughts of others.
