This was my final presentation for the charity brief, containing parts of my latest research and the development of my idea towards a finalised piece. As I was verbally explaining most of it this might not make sense but I hope the captions will be helpful enough for you (the random viewer) to understand.
I was trying to be as descriptive and informative during my presentation and I was generally worried about the feedback. As everyone else on our course had already settled on either a short animation or a series of posters I felt a bit odd, trying to get my installation across.
But no matter what, I believe that this is the best way to communicate my idea, undoubtedly raise awareness and ultimately make people question their own dependencies and pharmaceutical needs. As someone who has been treated with homeopathy my entire life, I can firmly say that there is always a different way to cure ourselves from illnesses and stay healthy without the use of antibiotics (doesn’t the word worry you even a bit? anti + bio ; aren’t we “bio” as well?).
I will be building a small maquet (or making a series of illustrations/sketches), depicting my idea in a more realistic way, easier to pitch to potential supporters.
I was very pleased with the feedback from the presentation (by tutors and peers) especially with the comment that in a way this is “more of an MA project than a BA one”. That really lifted my spirits and inspired me to work on this project even harder, especially since it could potentially really go live. How exciting is that?
