Last week two new students joined the project group, we started by meeting them last week to replay with them our first sessions together back in the Spring, we asked them the question we began with ‘what do we really want in life…what are our goals? and importantly what are the values that guide us? We take the text and combine and project them, placing them one on top of the other. As we had all done together earlier in the year. Repeating – this helped us start to reflect on the process …
Today, we all gather again plus two, and we focus on the question of our last session together how to communicate and share what we are doing and why? How do other people understand? What do they see?
We have made start, and produced a poster we look at this together then realise no its not right it doesn’t say what we are doing. So we stop and reorganise ourselves – lets lay out our sketches, graphics, objects that we have been working on to date
We spend a little time to lay it all out and we start to see how things fit together, or not – what is also missing ?
We discuss how are we going to find the narrative that lies beneath the different steps we have been taking, and to make them feel real for others – our work is intentionally simple to sit within a complex context. How do we reveal this in a meaningful and easy to access way?
Now we shall simply get on with working on this, as we want to share our experimentation with others!
