I hate to be this person but I really don’t like this collaboration project, I don’t mind the collaboration side I think that is going to be interesting and hopefully I will learn some new skills and my groups seem really motivated. I just really don’t like the actual brief, I feel like it is glamorising human trafficking, and as we don’t know what people might have been through I am finding it morally difficult. I understand that we are trying to raise awareness but I don’t think that is how it is going to come across, I am going to put a lot of hard work into this project so that we can create something that I am proud of, but for now I am finding it a very difficult topic to research and then try and design anything around.
Todays tutorial went really well I was a bit panicked as I didn’t have a lot of work as we had no internet at home and I had to stay in waiting for the engineer to come but I took some books out of the library yesterday about metal embroidery which were really interesting and I think will help us with this project. In the tutorial we all discussed our ideas and then our tutor gave her opinions on all our ideas and helped bounce ideas around, I came away feeling really motivated which Is what I needed after yesterday, after the tutorial we split off and I went to go and buy some spoons so that I can begin my experimentation.
Todays group tutorial went really well and I am really happy with all the comments I got and also how many helpful comments of improvement I got, I now know exactly where I am going with the projects, which is good as I have been really struggling recently. As not many people showed up to the tutorials we each got a longer slot which was really helpful especially before we go away for 3 weeks for Easter, it really helped make sure that we were on track and motivated as well as making sure we were going down a good path that will work. I am now feeling a lot more confident and happy with the work that I have produced over the past few weeks.
