crit for first project - it made me think a lot about how i would propose an idea to funders, what is realistic and what is not. My idea was to create a kind of ritual where you cut string like the fates in greek mythology who choose how long someone's life is by cutting yarn. then to dip it and make a candle, then add it to a dark room and whisper your hope for bringing light onto your life and the world. over time the light and repeated (recorded) whispers would increase, giving the idea that we have an effect on each other that can be used for good. I also think that no one really stops and is patient or silent, or even thinks of their own mortality much - especially in London any way. The feedback was that people thought the idea was clearly presented with nice drawing but i could show where i got my ideas from more - so i'll do that!
