I have worked in groups before, but this group was different because I feel that time has been more successful. I feel this way because we all had an individual role we had to play to share the work load between the team. Bethan, the project manager, did an amazing job guiding us through the project, and she also created a Facebook page so then we could put ideas and share research with each other. We had lots of challenges though the project but I felt that it made the group stronger because we all wanted to achieve our goal for a souvenir stall for the final exhibition. We had limited materials for the stand as we could only use cardboard boxes. We named our stall ‘Belle Vue’s Souvenir Emporium’. For the stall we came prepared with postcards for the visitors to take with them, so they understood the work. We also gave our work ‘price tags’ to name our final pieces, which gave the stall the characteristics of a shop. If we were to do it again, we would make it look better by having a sign with the shop name or perhaps re-think the set out again, but I feel that with the time we had we made a successful outcome.
I looked at a few craft makers that helped me think about how my final piece would look like or where wearables could be placed on the body. I researched the work of Kim Gilson, Lydia Hirte and Marku Raetz. I really loved Markus Rartz kinetic work, and how it moves to make an image.
