Art Installation

Earlier this month, my Design Process class had the opportunity to do an installation within the Fine Arts building. After going back and forth (and then more back and forth) with ideas, an idea was created that satisfied the needs and wants of our four (sometimes five) person group. Before I provide the link to the pictures (sorry folks, no hosting them this time!), allow me to provide some background information…

In the conceptual process, we found ourselves going back and forth with ideas including colors, the theme ‘sneak peek’, mobiles, and full room installations. Unable to come up with a solution that would satisfy everyone in the group, the back and forth dialog escalated to argument (see April 4th post), and it seemed that the whole project just sort of blew up on us. Ultimately, the argument ignited feelings similar to taking the idea sheet, ripping it to shreds, and tossing it in the air as to convey the message, “I give up”.

While it seemed that we were heading towards failure, the emotions invoked by the conflict began to shape a new idea. Inspired by creativity being a colorful (both literally and figuratively) process and it blowing up in our faces, we decided, why not exploit our obvious conflict as a group?

And without further ado, CLICK HERE to see what we came up with.
