In this workshop we were given a set of rules or perimeters in which to work in, but were encouraged to interpret the rules in any way we wanted. The work was open, as long as it followed some basic guidelines. Our group of four had to follow these rules; Draw a circle and fill it in. Each member of the group now works clockwise with 30 seconds to add to the circle, improving on it’s shape. Stop when the circle is perfect.
There were some good interpretations of this project, including one group who drew the first circle, filled it in and left it at that because the circle was considered perfect to them and could not be improved on. Our interpretation was to follow the guidelines in terms of the overall circular shape, but add pattern, so the shape was circular overall but the lines were made up of shapes and drawings.
