  • INITIAL IDEA

    The words we picked were "Work in Progress".
    The intial idea was to have the finished piece made out of wood and possibly acrylic, thus each piece having a 3D aspect. A picture would then be taken and pasted up next to two other posters; the idea that they would show the work in progress, probably through one poster being a sketch, the next being a blueprint.
  • Concepts - Second one was the strongest; it had literal meaning - the word in was encompassed within the surrounding flourishes.
  • In keeping with the original idea of three posters, I went ahead and completed my part of the blueprint concept.
  • The idea was then changed to make our designs out of objects. I made two concepts both out of shoelaces and were colourised randomly because a colour scheme hadn't yet been picked.
  • FINAL WORK
     
    It was then decided that my design was too complex and didnt work with the entire piece.
    It was simplified and pinned 'in'.
    The word 'Work' was made with over 1250+ small pencils.
    The word 'Progress' was made with over 2000+ pieces of scrunched up red and white paper.
     
    The rationale was that each word linked into it's meaning. Being made from pencils, work is just that, origniating from the pencils. Pins 'in'. And for 'progress' the concept came from when you have many ideas and scrunch up them as you put them on paper because they're not good enough, and throw them over your shoulder.
