Review (Week 10)
Title: Maternal Love (final)
Great mothers give birth to their children, comfort and guide them back on the right path when they get lost. Sometimes, we may find that our mothers are annoying, they keep an eye on us and ask us to do something that we are not willing to, but in fact, they are the ones who actually care about us and love us, giving unconditional support to us. They always worry about our future and help us solve daily challenge by sharing their life experiences.
The above installation shows the greatness of a mother, therefore, the objects that I chose were commonly used by our mothers, so it can symbolize motherhood, they include clothes-hanger, pegs, sleep-in curler and hair elastic. I composited these objects to form an image of a mother, presenting that our mothers always apply all their energies to do housework and take good care of us. I would like to display it in the kitchen as kitchen is always the working place for our mothers.
Title: Guitar Loves
I am a devoted lover of music and I love listening to all types of music. Music can alter our moods, lowering our stress levels and keeping us consistently happy. Although I never try to learn how to play a guitar, I appreciate those who excel in playing it and singing songs at the same time, they’re really cool! Playing guitar can also help us communicate with our emotions and heal our souls, reducing the chance of getting depressed.
The above installation forms an image of a guitar, the pink hair elastic represents passion and energy as pink belongs to the red color tone, while the angles of the hexagonal iron box means that life is no simple task, we have to go through a lot of difficulties in order to achieve success. I would like to place it on my piano, so it can always remind me that I need to be optimistic in life.
In modern society, every post requires collaboration to reach a consensus and raise efficiency. Collaborating with others not only help us see an event in a widen perspective, but also help work things out via exchanging and accepting alternative ideas and viewpoints, obtaining a win-win situation. Imperative as teamwork is, it fosters better interpersonal relationships and minimize conflicts in a team.
I think the above installation can be put in office as it shows that two people are striking a balance in order to make the clothes-hanger stand. This implies that collaboration provides a strong incentive for people to put oneself in others’ shoes and strive for a consensus.
