Last week I saw an exhibition which is called “yellowbluepink”, exhibiting at the Euston museum. It is a new installation by Ann Veronica Janssens explores the light and color as she invades the gallery with colored mist. Colour is caught in a state of suspension, obscuring any detail of surface or depth. She intends for viewers to find their own reflections through the narrative space which is packed with neon lights and mist.
I’ve got some inspiration from this kind of form, which is a connection between the viewers’ visions and their expectation and emotion. This form maybe used in my project to translate some emotional elements and built some interactions with viewers.
Here there is a short video of this narrative space:
This is the first week I studied at Interaction Design Studio, I was so excited cause many classmates are from different countries around the world, which means the mixture of different culture background. It is a key point of interaction design, this means that we have opportunities to obtain some inspiration from each other cause the different study, work and life experience.
Next, we are divided into four group for the redesign of our IDC studio.For me, I was responsible for the redesign of the studio space. After a discussion with our teammates, we engaged a solution of the space and designed a graphic of it. However, this was not last version due to the fact that we need to considerate other groups’ work. Then we had a discussion with other group and finally we produced a rational solution.In this process, although I suffered some language problems due to the lack of my vocabulary，I was so happy and satisfied because of the first communication with my classmates. Everyone worked so hard on those two days and I really enjoy this kind of feeling.
Besides, we took some classes about the academic support and this is very useful for our Postgraduate Study, especially about the research part. In these classes, we were taught how to use the different methods to do the research and how to do the analysis of the articles. One point worth mentioning is that is the Critical Thinking, which means that we need to have reflection of our design throughout the feedback of users, as well as the self-reflection of ourselves, leading to the best solution of issues.
Thus the first week at LCC is so memorable for me and this is a new start of my life stages, I am looking forward…..
