Working on our Project A play and exploration lessons has been so interesting. I think what has intrigued me the most is the “blind” factor behind each exploration. We don’t know what the end product will be, or what the goal the end product may produce. It’s a very foreign concept from my day to day job where there is always a clear goal established before I start creating. I know the problem I’m trying to solve and it drives my creative process. For Project A, I just take it one step at a time and I have no restrictions for my thought process.
What I also thought was interesting was to build on the other students lists; read through the words they wrote and see the same, or different, direction I may go. It made me stop and wonder what made someone come up with that word, and also examine what made me go in another direction.
I’m so excited to see what is going to be next with the projects and how we will build off our first three exercies.
