This project tested my ability to successfully connect seemingly unrelated ideas, concepts, questions or problems from different fields or subject areas. In fact, the foundation of creativity is built upon the framework of connecting things in a new & original way. If something looks like something else instantly there is an association. Do they resemble each other because of some shared method of working, downright copying, appropriation or dealing with the same problem. This team project was to brand and design the “museum of associations” including making the artefacts.
Love through the ages This project was to associate language & love and show how it was expressed throughout the ages and love, like language is a capacity in humans that is innate but must be developed. Cuneiform script is one of the earliest systems of writing which evolved and became stylised over time giving it the clarity needed to convey emotions to the reader. Linking back to some of the most well known writers of different time periods I then found a quote of theirs that I then translated into cuneiform and transcribed onto a slab of clay. This was a really intriguing way of highlighting my knowledge of the first forms of communication.
