During this first week of the field module I began group work with the fine art department to generate ideas together and produce a collaborative piece of artwork. My group joined other groups after each small task which made it more challenging to include all of our ideas to create the final piece.
The original piece of artwork we made was a sort of dream catcher which resembled a maze. The artwork is an attempt to represents how people become so addicted to social media that they feel lost without it in their lives. The idea of a maze within a dream catcher and social media labels represent this.
After this we all as a group helped to improve this piece into one piece of artwork that we were happy with. We had the idea of creating an installation based on this theme. The piece revolved around a large maze made from an old tyre which was surrounded by our own individual dream catchers that we made based on each social networking site.
