I received feedback from one of my peers saying they liked the soft padding on the back and the indented seat. Also how the masking tape holds the wadding in place and looks like a skeletons ribs. However to improve I should change the chair legs and improve the look as this was rushed as the day came to a close. Overall I really enjoyed today, especially turning my own designs from observational research into a model and then into a life size product.
Jewellery is one of the specialist pathways I am really interested in. The day started with a group powerpoint and talk about designers. Examples of their work which stood out to me are found on my information file. I was very interested in the idea of restriction and the work of one of the UAL BA students, Ekaterina Polikarpova in the exhibition Restless Futures.
In 20 minuets I designed as many ideas as I could with the word restriction on my mind. My final piece was a metal body piece which expresses, 'What women want!' my 'mock up' was designed to be fitted to the female owerglass shape/figure, squeezing the waist in, holes for the chest to be squeezed into and pushed together. The piece extended up to the face making a cuff round the back of the head to the cheeks,pushing the cheek bones up and defining the facial features.
Using the limited materials I had in the time I left myself was very hard. Next time I will leave more time for making because I felt the final outcome didn't support my planning and development idea well enough. It could have been something great.
