    Yes, guys. I think this is time to decide the elements as u guys said. I’d like to pick “World Hemophilia Day” as well. As Kevin posted about it, graphically i can do something about it…(not sure but..just got a feel like i can do…?! hahaha)

    here is my idea about the questions from K.

    I think we’d better do 3….coz it’s nice to work separately( it does NOT mean i work on my own)

    • Unity – hiphop
    • Divide – Canadas break from UK rule (I think this is true… )
    • Hope (or Faith) – World Hemophilia Day


    We can create the united Identity together (b4 christmas break or something)
    IF we make decision about our identity then we can work our own.
    What do u think?

    ah, then next week (Wendsday maybe) we can visit some of the museum and galleries or flagship store?

      One more thing Brian, Kevin..!

      I met Stefanos(italian guy) on Friday At rave coz we have a English class yesterday. He just asked me lightly that he would like to join with us IF WE ARE OK.
      He has no one to work with at the moment so he asked me to discuss about him with u guys.
      I have really NO idea if he is suitable for our project.
      He said if we dont want him to join, it is fine with him. i will ask Liz to fine someone. hehe
      so dont think about it seriously 🙂
      I just wanted to talk about this.

      Good work, I’m hoping to be in Monday, we can sort the theme and style fingers x’sed, I like the thing with Unity Divide and Hope. It sounds good I’m really looking forward to seeing any visuals you may have 🙂

        hello, Brian 🙂

        Im just wondering. I have been thinking how the exhibition looks like as a whole big picture (not small piece of graphics…..) so, I might go to draw some blueprints first….. what do u think?

          I think thats a great idea i am really keen to see how kevin and yourself are approaching things

    Will be a good idea to catch up and start pinning down and discussing how we intend to use some of our Great reference material

    Trapped by the snow has meant I’ve reverted to painting some images of Africa Bambaataa, to use as a motion graphic tests I’ve been thinking about how information could be presented on video screens have either of you produced anything graphical yet?

    I’ve been working up some palettes and a range of abstract visuals
    (any feedback good or bad or off the wall very welcome)


    Clarence kindly forwarded this, I like the simplicity of the works very effective and visually clever, it’s interesting that the vanishing point becomes the focus, might work well on some cartography examples?

    Graffiti fonts 

    Have a look at http://www.fontspace.com/category/graffiti – lots of graffiti style fonts for free!! I know we spoke briefly about the style of our exhibition – has anyone had any ideas? As we has several topics within our exhibit; hip hop (Planet Rock), falklands conflict, independence of Canada – any others… we still need a central theme for the exhibition as a whole – whether this is an 80’s theme, a time theme or something else.

    We need to decide:
    1/ what subjects we are covering (3 or 4 max?)
    2/ what information are we using?
    3/ the central style?
    4/ do the separate subjects follow this central theme or have their own?

      Cool I downloaded some yesterday but am yet to look through them to see if they are usable,
      You’ve raised some key questions, had the snow not set us back we would have them answered already…
      I think four is a maximum, I like the idea of an on this day area..
      where a visitor could scan through additional information about what happened on on the day over over the years.
      If we focused on the 3 elements the theme ‘loosely’ could be the Unity (hiphop) Divide (Canadas break from UK rule – not read much about this yet.. To be truthful) and End (this could be the the Look and Learn publication?)
      What are your thoughts? – we need to catch really up to get things sorted, c’mon Snow MELT!

      (I cant help but think our monment in time could have been Christmas lol)

    Video games industry 

    Another entertainment genre that was having major success was video games:
    Wikipedia states:
    Arcade games and video games had been growing in popularity since the late 1970s, and by 1982 were a major industry. But a variety of factors, including a glut of low-quality games and the rise of home computers, caused a tremendous crash in late 1983.’
    By the sounds of it they reached a height in our year before collapsing again in 83.

    I fondly remember the C64 – it was the first computer I ever had:
    ‘In 1982, Commodore introduced the Commodore 64 as the successor to the VIC-20. Thanks to a well-designed set of chipsdesigned by MOS Technology, the Commodore 64, (also referred to as C64), possessed remarkable sound and graphics for its time and is often credited with starting the computer demo scene.
    I have looked into the demo scene and it is a sub culture that developed were home users created there own demos – typically to illustrate the graphical power and to show off there musical skills.

    In the world of Apple computers, 1982 was also the year work stated on the 1st Apple Mac although it wasn’t released until 1984.

    Interactive exhibition 

    Clarence should me this earlier in the week: http://www.livingworld.net/works/projection-table
    I think it is a really clever way of displaying a timeline and allowing people to interact with the exbition.
