Through previous research, April and I had realized that we needed more of a foundation, a starting point, to base our ideas on and then allow the ideas to grow from there. This is because our original starting point had become too vague and we were drifting around a little lost. (See sketchbook alongside blog for further developments and documentations of meetings). Therefore, reviewing what we had already been looking at we came up with the following:
- Everyday spaces
From these elements we found a current exhibition on at the Natural History Museum called Colour and Vision: Through the Eyes of Nature which we thought brought together all of our interests within the project up until this point. This starting point also gave us an open area to explore and let our imagination run wild while also providing more direction and paths to follow.
Colour and Vision: Through the Eyes of Nature
From here we followed the same process that we had used in the workshop with Sennep as we had found this useful before. This is what we ended up with.
What is it?
- Touch light
- 3d structure
Who is it for?
- People who suffer from stress or OCD
- Those who struggle with colours (either creative, children or individuals with colour blindness)
Where is it?
- A purpose built room
What does it do?
- Relax users and calm tensions
- Create a fun experience
- Recycle stuff
At this point we decided to individually do some research and bring some ideas back to each other tomorrow.
