Today I have been doing more of my dissertation, mainly looking back over my draft and looking at notes. I am still slightly struggling with a lot of the language. But I am getting there, I feel this is a very slow process though. Not much really to report on today. Although, I have started to do a bit more research into the theory of happiness. I feel like my dissertation is already starting to come together more.
Tomorrow I will be hanging my pieces for the interim show. I am actually rather excited to see how the will look for the show. So I will be able to show it looking all pretty.
For my main project I have been looking at possibly doing some performance art. Similar to a flash mob. I have been toying with the idea of consumerism and how there are seven kinds of ways we shop. One of them being is we copy each other. You see someone with a new phone that can do everything but it's primary use, of being a phone. We want it as we see so many others with it. We feel a need to be kept in the loop. So! I thought it would be very entertaining if I managed to get everyday people to do their shopping in a sheep costume.
Even as I write this I then remember the term "Copy Cat". Again this would be the same thing, just different animals. Not too sure if I would be able to get enough people for this and I do realize timing should have been more towards Christmas. But this doesn't mean I can't do this during the year. This again is just one of my crazy ideas.
So yea, I will be able to show how my place will look for the interim show.
