Street Space Exhibition and Final Critique
For this exhibition we decided to work as a team, each of us has a task.
I was supposed to create a poster in collaboration with Dawn. Eunice and Honey was responsible with drinks and snakes, Fatma and Thalia was responsible with curatorial work and Ilum was supposed to send an eMail to the team with a minute of meeting (about exhibition).
This is the Street Space Exhibition Poster which was created by Dawn:
Dawn had a lovely idea about the curation, she use some orange lines from walls to floor. This gives the space a freedom and a non conformance sense. I think it works perfect with our project and with the furniture.
We organised the furniture in a parallelism way and after this we start to organize the exhibits.
Here are part of my sketch models:

This exhibition was absolutely interesting in terms of team working. I remembered when we start this project, we discussed about what means team and if we are a team. My thoughts at that time was that it will be nice to be a team and after we are a team to work as a team.
It is very easy, nice and fun to work with people who have same goal, basically all the team is going to same direction. In this case I don’t feel a team, I was pieced off when I was there at 10:00 AM and it was nobody except Dawn. So I should wait like few hours to come everybody (this is not happened first time). I almost feel like I’m loosing my time, and I really don’t have time to waste. I didn’t know exactly how to manage this, if is good to tell them about or just to ignore, which will never fix this problem.
Coming back to the subject, I think my presentation skills are growing comparing with first year. I think my English is better now, of course far from an academic language but I feel some improvements. I was trying to focus on my presentation, to make it better, I know it is not enough to have a good work if you are not able to sell it. Overall I was happy after this final critique, I work hard for my portfolio too and I feel really good when Dawn write at the end of feedback, “excellent”.
Now, I need a brake, I feel really tired if I have to be honest. But considering my presentation for final critique I think I should read more in English to develop my vocabulary, and in the same time my presentations. I should learn more about curatorial work, I was absolutely impressed about Dawn’s work and her idea.
