Field: Mixed Subject Groups

 

 

Being in a mixed subject group was interesting as when given an idea, each have a different way of making come to life. This opens the mind and make you think about how to compromise and challenges you to try different methods of working. Our fist brief was to think about what our future homes will be like and what kind of character we would want it to have. we started off by doing a mind map and one of our main focuses was for it to be eco friendly and restore nature to what it was. then we researched pictures of how we might want it to look and the gadgets we would want in the house hold and created a mood board. and to put in our own interpretations of the house we then went away and produce a drawing each then displayed them together i think this was a successful method of collaboration.

 

 

This was my individual view on our future home which contributed to our main manifesto. we did a range of our Eco friendly floating homes to suit different peoples needs, mine was known as city pods.

 

this was the final outcome of our work showing how we could live with out harming the earth and allowing it to prosper.

Field: Subject Groups

As we were all influenced by the conference we were asked to find ourselves a group of about four that had the same interests as ourselves. my group also enjoyed the into the woods lecture, and believed in the point it put across. This also over lapped with a well being lecture so as a group we decided to bring them together and include how technology and nature may affect your well being, and to teach the future generation that there can be a happy balance between technology and nature as long as they work together and nature isn’t neglected or forgotten about.

We started just by having a conversation about how our idea could mesh and what could inspire us. Then we chose words that we felt were important and at the center of our ideas and illustrated this. The outcomes were quite successful as we all had very different interpretations of how to visually communicate these words. we did this on a sheet of A1 and thought about how our images could merge. we decided on a 3d sculpture of a tree that was made out of both twigs and wires which showed the relationship between both of these vital elements technology and nature. then by producing 10 leaves each we all got add our personal perspective in our own styles but with it still coming together as a whole. we also invited fellow student to add leaves and put there thought across about the subject which made our piece interactive and tactile.

 

We tried it in different areas to see how it would effect the space, and become a conversational piece.
