[Book] Exploration & Discovery
For developing my work looking back through my experimentation and ideas, I want to consider exploring the concept of ‘Wasting Time’ in my work, linking back to the theme of sequences. Aspects of my daily routine and sequence I can reflect back are repetitive and pointless, I think time is wasted in my life with routines such as eating, sleeping, non-stop working and procrastination. I can build further on this concept in developments towards my Final outcome.

Time ticking and wasting time.
Exploring my concept of sequences and wasting time i have considered relating my project work with using data based on my daily routine and the time that is wasted. using this, i can can create information graphics pieces which can depict my ideas to an outside viewer
Alternative Approach in Developing work.
To develop my project, I’ve decided to take another alternative and experimental route, my project is strongly based on the idea on sequences and daily routine. Also thinking about the idea of wasting time, I discovered I waste a lot of my own time watching YouTube Videos on the internet. The video considered the most disliked video ever is the song ‘Friday’ by Rebecca Black, listening to this video I found a quintessential link between the song lyrics and my ideas for my project.
Routine in the song:
7am, waking up in the morning
Gotta be fresh, gotta go downstairs
Gotta have my bowl, gotta have cereal
Seein’ everything, the time is goin’
Tickin’ on and on, everybody’s rushin’
Gotta get down to the bus stop
Gotta catch my bus, I see my friends (My friends)
Kickin’ in the front seat
Sittin’ in the back seat
Gotta make my mind up
Which seat can I take?
It’s Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend
Gettin’ down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend
Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah)
Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah)
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Lookin’ forward to the weekend
By considering exploiting this idea I will be taking a risk with my project, but I think there are strong humorous and fun elements in which I can bring to developing my Graphic Design work and project Outcomes.
For my outcomes, reflecting back on the work of my project and experimentation in journals, I feel creating a set of ‘Zines’ will be suitable to conclude my project. Much of the work I have produced doesn’t target a specific client but refers to the general ideas of my theme and concepts of daily sequences, time and routine. My designs I want to continue keeping them abstract and open to interpretation as this is my self initiated project I want to work alternatively to conventional outcomes for my graphics pieces. I like the idea of using monochrome photographs and having a limited colour scheme for my designs relating to the styles of works to my artist studies. The Zines I will produce will consist of some of the experimental designs I have made, combining hand pieces as well as digital pieces to engage the viewer showcasing a range of ideas within my Final Outcomes.
