Before doing the actual interactive piece, we were asked to create a photographic image that would act as a 'statement of intent' for out idea and final outcome.

For our interactive piece we decided to ask the public whether they would rather be 'dead' or 'cool'. We decided to document it by taking a photograph of them with a label or sticker saying one of the two. In the end we though it would look really stark and effective for the person to hold up a sign in big, bold letters saying 'dead' or 'cool', similar to criminal mug shots. This would also create a consistency though all of the photos as they will hold the sign relatively in the same place, whereas with a sticker it can be put anywhere on the body.
