Do you have some time this week? I would love to sit with you to talk about your NGB Project. I have a few thoughts that I think may help.
Remember your Hybrids from last year? Those wonderful very aesthetic compositions you did in Rosha’s class? They seem to me to so reflect you and what you are about. What if you made a series of stress beds, beds inspired by our community or global communities?
Sharing the inequity of the results of Climate Change. What an unbelievably complex global problem. But perhaps… . if we work together in teams on small aspects of it and let sleep help us BRAINSTORM solutions.
Your bed could be a delightfully you. fine. aesthetic , intelligent hand drawn “invitation to do this. with handwriting, hand drawn charts and drawings that give the sleeper som initial informaation to deal with. Perhaps they get to write or draw on the bedding and ultimately send it to a global conference with other peoples bedding, to “put together” all the ideas.
You mentioned Liking Ideo’s way that they crowd source solutions to users. This could be a lot more creative and Negin like.
Perhaps the “Global” problem is one closer to your heart. A feminist issue in Iran. Fair and equal education for all. Finding a substitute model for the SAT’s.
Let me know your thoughts.
These could be final Photoshop renderings or (but you would really have to work hard) a proposal with Hearst funding for a Bed installation in the Custom Hotel Otis Gallery.
The GC ID (ha ha — Global Cafe Identity) looks great. A few thoughts.
Let’s call it Global cafe and get rid of the THE. as I see it both ways on you presentation.
Can you please send me a PDF of:
1/ that logo standards (rough attached)
2/ the logo generating trangle system you are using that you learned in type
3/ pdfs of the formats that you are working on with Ben and Angela for their public service announcement about millenials.
I am very excited about this project that you are doing! I am attaching some really rough pages from the “book” that I am designing to “house” the class’s work that show where your logo system might be. (see page 65 + last page of the document)
Also— here are the beginning Global Cafe Nomenclature for divisions:
GLOBAL CAFE / Seating (joel) GLOBAL CAFE / Bedding (negin + sophie) GLOBAL CAFE / Film (ben + angela)
GLOBAL CAFE / Sleeping (Josh— he is designing sleep pods)
Designing simple Hangtags for the pillows, incorporating yu visual system into the Public Service Announcement, even creating a simple fabric repeat to be used to cover pillows on Joel’s Share Chair and somehow getting the logo into Negin’s sheet design and Josh’s sleep pods will will really add value to the collaborative aspect of this class. Thank you for your help!!!
On another note, thank you for sharing that your family was safe with me and the class. We are much relieved.
Propose an Independent Study to execute on the Hearst Foundation Grant.
Spend the rest of the semester writing the Grant Presentation.
Resolve who what where when and why for this product.
Finding the right place for this piece is essential. Working with facilities + the architecture department + in a cramped campus could be a problem.
think about the senior center, hotel or school. Perhaps its part of the Otis Gallery at the Hotel? Or the school Play yard. Maybe it is lounge furniture by the Custom Hotel Pool. Or it is for tired teachers at LoVE. The third Graders have collected a lot of evidence of stress and conflict with the teachers there. Also, this is precidense for aninstallation there. Graduate fine arts made a really wonderful cement garden inspired by single sell organisms
Work next semester with Matt, David and I on the Independent study and execution of grant.
