The theme for our second semester was given over the holidays, I felt it appropriate to get ahead with planning before the classes begun again so that I was fully prepared for the semester. I am unsure where I want to go with this theme as I wanted something meaningful and emotional, yet fun and playful as the theme “home” can be interpreted in so many ways. Home for me has been challenging as I have often felt quite isolated as an individual so for me it is more than a place, it is the people who I have been surrounded with throughout my life.
Below are some initial ideas and thoughts I had while thinking of projects to do with “home”, none are final however all consist of ideas and thoughts that I would like to pursue for this module.
Themes within the theme “home”
Family (who feels like home to me), friends (people who I have met that have made me feel comfortable and secure), objects (sentimental things, what I keep and grow old with), places (the homes I have lived in as a child, the homes of my elders, where do I feel most at peace ), my future aspirations (ideas that I have grown up with that I want to pursue and feel at home with)
Do I want to create a 3D or 2D model/piece of work?
When creating a 2D piece of work for this model, it would need to be very well executed and detailed enough to take me through the whole eleven weeks, therefore if I do decide to create a flat piece of work, being a drawing or photograph, I would make multiple pieces and turn them into a series of some sort, possibly creating multiple pieces each week to accumulate the amount of work needed.
A 3D piece would be better for me personally, I feel after the last semester I have a new found appreciation for installations and three-dimensional pieces of work, it would be an intricate piece of work that would last many hours and I believe I would have more of a broad scape in what I can create with it being three dimensional rather and two dimensional.
First ideas that come to mind
