As we in Fourth Wall approach the point of designing our proposals, we all took part in a studio bonding activity. Task One, blind drawing a fellow member of Fourth Wall, awkward at first starring into the persons eyes opposite you but then turning into a fun activity that forced us all to laugh together. Having done this several times, for some their drawings became better and slightly resembled the person in front of them. The secret meaning to this task was iteration and not to be precious at the beginning of a project, to have fun and to experiment and to trust what you are doing. Task two, we were given an apple and a photo of the Sydney Opera House, so again together we carved apples and worked together to create every abstract looking Opera Houses, the secret meaning to this task I believe was to experiment with materials and again not to be to precious, just get on and make!
