After realising that our group had totally mis understood the project. We all decided to go away and think about what F block means to us and think of ‘transformative space’ in terms of social space and the atmosphere of F block and whether or not it has a positive or negative effect.
After thinking hard about this I decided to go back to the brainstorm we did of what a transformative space is, pick a couple of words and come up with ideas from there. Some new ideas that I came up with to share with the group include: Growth- Showing how the people of F block have changed over time or the stages we go through (for example a poster showing someone at their breaking point). Using growth in a different context we could also create a series of posters showing how F block as a physical building has changed and developed over space. Influence- How the atmosphere of F block impacts us. Using simple everyday objects to show this.. like how Peter gave us that example of the orange being squashed sitting on a plinth. I thought instead of the orange something like coffee could be used to demonstrate the same message. Coffee is also some that the people of F block drink a lot of. Another idea I had for influence is doing a series of posters on the tutors and how they influence the student in F block. All these ideas could be positive or negative depending on the person.
Here are some images that I have found and I like the idea of using parts of them as away of illustrating these ideas. I think these images would work quite well with the idea of portraying the atmosphere of F block or the stages students of F block go through. The top two representing the ‘breaking point’ stage perhaps. Click on one of the images and it will link you to the website where I sourced it from.
