'IMAGE'How does the design context change the nature of our work?
The design context gives us variety of ideas of what we could do in order to form the outcome. By having two different words and combining them together. Which I was given social and cardboard. I interpret it as homeless, using cardboard to make essentials such as plates and spoons. However, if we were only given 1 word, it would change the whole thoughts and ideas of what we could do, such as if only the only word ‘cardboard’ were given, it would be a bit out of blue and we could have been producing something that is irrelevant and may limit our ideas and thinking process.
How might we evaluate the success of the our work?
The mood and the angle of a camera of the photo is the success of my work. I think I could evaluate my work into the bigger scale and include more elements in the frame. Looking at my images, I feel a bit uncomfortable and sorrowful. However, personally, the uncomfortableness can present the feelings of the images very well. With the use of black and white, it becomes more dramatic. Furthermore, asking other people feelings and opinions about my work is also a way to develop my work. When we are working on my work, sometimes we can lose the site or miss out something that is very important. Because we focus so much on the work and already understand the idea fully. Getting other people's perspective about my work could help me to develop and find problems of my work easily.
What potential role or function our work have outside this project?
We were given two words so my partner and I decided to do a mind map for each word to come up with more ideas of what it means and the use of it. Then we give each othertask to go and take photographs and do some research of the word we got (Social and Cardboard). I focused on the word “social” and tried to take pictures and find some particular objects that could reflect people and society. We then came up with homeless after looking at the primary research pictures, which we developed it further as our main theme.
how do our own lives/experiences inform the work you're working?
Our lives and experiences are the beginnings of the idea. The brainstorms that I created as a starting point of my work received different perspectives of each specific keyword from my experiences. Moreover, producing work based on my experiencesallows me to understand a feeling and a meaning of the work more and be able to create the work in a right direction. Moreover, sometimes the idea could become not too big when we produce the work that informed by something else. Using experiences and my own life helps me to understand and be able to approach the work more.
