On Friday 13th we had our test run of our finished works for Light Nelson. It was a dummy run so we could iron out any potential problems and also a chance for our peers to give us feedback and critique our work.
I was thrilled with how everything worked well for my test run. I was able to bring a movable white wall from the studios down and use it as a barrier between my work and Lee’s work (a fellow class mate) the wall was a perfect fit and hid the back of the TV well. I was also able to find some marble blocks which when, put underneath the plinth brought the TV up to the correct height in the window. This saved building a stand.
The TV looked great up on the stand, with the movable wall covering the back of the display. I was able to hook up the DVD player and use the remote to set it to play on repeat.
I took photographs of what it all looked like with the lights out at night. Then heard some very useful and interesting feedback and critique.
- Some people said that the spelling and grammar mistakes could seem as devaluing the people in the slide show.
- This slideshow could be seen on Nelson’s ‘i-site’ building – it seems very much a tourism advertisement for Nelson. Perhaps a different question could have been put forward to the people? a question that generated less generic answers.
