First of all I would like to talk a little bit about the piece of wall art on the header of this blog.
Due to previous work in other modules I decided early on that my focus for this project would be dialogue. With this in mind I set about looking for various schemes and Art work that would directly relate to the above theme.
As a result I found this brilliant piece that I personally think sums up the attitude of Londoners. The idea that potentially people talk too much about things that ultimately are insignificant and mundane. So now I am thinking about the various other ways we can create a dialogue without going on and on and on and on and on… (Well you get the picture)
I came up with the following list;
- Body language
- Social Networking
So many projects have a theme that involves preaching a moralistic tale or holds a belief that it can in some way transform peoples values and behaviour. This can be perceived as rather patronizing as it holds the implication that something needs to be changed in the first place.
Subsequently I have become interested in the silences and what has not changed.
So now I am going to start examining what has stayed the same in Hackney what the borough has kept through all its physical alterations and how this can be communicated without patronizing the community are at the heart of the place.
