From the map I collected a few words like :
I then was asked to select three out of those words. I used the ones that resonated in my mind at the time I did the exercise;
The drawing above is a quick drawing as I feel I spend a lot of time on these exercises. I used tissue paper as it is delicate and of course the colour pink represents ‘pretty’. I used a pastel crayon to represent softness and add a delicate feeling. At this point it’s not about the drawing but the feeling of the word. It’s an interesting exercise and I don’t feel 100% convinced I have got it right as my definition of ‘ pretty’ could be different to any one else.
Above is my drawing representing ‘ memories’ I have tried to do it soft and dreamy with vague lines and colours blending into each other. I belive that sometimes memories became dreams, stories that have been embellished by the person; remembering only the best parts and leaving out the not so good parts. This drawing could also represent the word ‘ dreams’ . This exercise is harder than I thought! It really gets me thinking. I think most of the time when drawing or designing something I make the decisions of colour, or media unconsciously but this exercise helps break down how we think, how we collect information and what influences have helped the final product.
