week 12

These two weeks we totally focused on the 3D design and since I got in the JFFA I have learnt a lot of new stuff.The first day we started our new brief which was "favourite".We were asked to do research about our favourite designer.My research designer's name is Isabell Schaupp who is a jewelry designer from Germany and most her works usually used more than three different materials and the way she connected the materials was really interested me.Then we started our two weeks brief which is "Bespoke" this brief asked us to make a piece of work for our client.The first time I make something for others and this is really killed me cause I was used to making things individually and this time I need to consider how to make a piece work suit my client.And through the interview process with my clint and I knew a lot of stuff about my client.And I realized that design is not just about writing down our ideas it's also about the communication between others and this can make the design more interesting and rich. We spent almost three days in the workshop to make the model and the final piece.Through the idea develop process I was really inspired by my classmates which is using photographs to make the decisions.I photographed 19 photographs to find the best way to hold the wood and photographed 29 photographs of my models to find the best structure to be placed on the body.Another thing I learnt from this two weeks is never throw out the rubbish.In fact,I developed my idea form the rubbish in the metal workshop.The different structures in the metal workshop changed my idea a lot.About the presentation in Thursday, I gonna say it was a really good way to improve myself not just the ability to present also the way to find the weakness of myself through comparing with others.And through the presentation I also found a lot of different fantastic ways to show our work.Lots of students have their special style and I need to find my style as well.

WEEK 14

This week we started a new project which is "small change " and we need to focus on the word 'Sustainability'.And through the library sessions on word.I found use library services can make my research more convenient.And I do find a lot useful information in the library by using the system.And we also went to the CSM materials library which is amazing,I can find almost all kinds of materials I need.On Thursday we spent all day to make a hat to try to learn the skill of making it.and I think this will be helpful for my 'small change 'work.

WEEK 16

The first day of this new term I got a blow.The reason is my concept of my small change project is not clear.After the tutorial I just felt so perplexed.My first concept is the' sustainable communication'.So I researched some information about the communication.But the research was not clear and enough.I tried to use the motherboard as the material for my small change but I can't explain how these two things can connect to each other.After talking with the tutor I decide to change my concept.So I started to redo my research.This time I decided to focus on the water pollution.And found that the heavy metal element can cause the water pollution.On Tuesday we started a new brief named ''Memories Contained Within''.The brain storming that given by tutor was very useful.At the first time I wanted to do something about the 'Death' .This is a really big topic.But after the introduction .I realized that this is not suitable for me cause I don't know anything about death and it will be very hard for me.Through the brain storm I realized that some memories can also be interesting.On  Thursday,I finally decided what memories I want to remind.The memories was the injury by bees when I was nine yeas old.And the first thing came to mind is protection. But after some talking with the tutor I found that hurt can remind me this memory even better.

WEEK 17

Today we tutorial about our project ''Memories contained within'' again. After listened some of other students' concepts I started to feel a little bit worried about my work.Cause everyone got some really meaningful memory concept.and mine just hurt by bees.I know this is like a completion and we will present this project to BA stuff and I feel a little bit panic.In the afternoon we were given a introduction of the soldering and I have to say this is just super useful.I used to have some great design idea but I didn't know how to make the metal join together and now I feel more free to make things cause this technology problem has been solved.Tuesday and Wednesday,I spent all day in the workshop.I tried to use plastic workshop and wood workshop and I learnt a lot of technology about how to make jewelry.This is super exciting.

WEEK 18

First of all,the presentation to BA stuff was just exciting and gave me a lot of pressure.And I found a lot of students have amazing work and it reminded me I should work harder! And also some students got some really nice way to present their work.And the advice from the feedback was totally right to me. I should spent the time equally.I spent a lot of time doing my research and sketching on the sketchbook and the model making time I just spent a little.This caused my finally work is not that delicate.In the afternoon, we started a new project named "Worlds Collide'' we should pick two different 'company' to make a piece work.On Tuesday, we checked the process of the ''Small Change'' project again.Sadly my concept went to a wrong way again,I started to feel panic cause we don't have too much time left.The concept just didn't match my design idea.The tutor said if I really want to use the motherboard as the material for the ''Small Change'' I should do some research on the motherboard.Fortunately,I find the right way by researching in  the school library.and mine concept is 'Electronic Waste'.
