Project Update | Minor Project | Year 3

Originally I wanted my project to focus on trying to recreate something from the past. Instead I've switched views and my project is now focused on trying imagine the future with the help of some other people.  "It’s the Year 2500"

I've created a 'kit' which is being sent out to a range of people which consist of paper, tracing paper, a black felt tip and a list of questions. At the moment I've selected 10 people of all ages and career paths and they will be drawing responses to the questions and hopefully giving me a written response as well. 

The questions are as follows:

  • Describe your home – what does it look like?
  • How are you cooking your dinner?
  • How are you watching television?
  • What is your mode of transport and where do you keep it?
  • What are you/your children playing with?
  • Describe your garden/outdoor space.
  • What is the year 2500 like to live in?
  • What can you see from your window?

Whatever I get back from these 10 people will hopefully give me the grounds to start developing some interesting ideas. I'm hoping that I can take their drawings and create 'blueprints' for each response. Where it goes from here will be decided upon once I receive the drawings. I might directly use their ideas, take inspiration from their drawings or even improve upon their drawings. 

Where it goes from here all depends upon the feedback from each person!


  1. Hey Beckie - while you wait for the responses to come in, I don't want you to be twiddling your thumbs! I'm going to suggest an overhaul of your blog - something a bit more 'neutral' - I don't know what the significance might be of your campsite/mountain banner, but I'd suggest it's going to have less and less to do with your final year as your project begins to develop its own brand! I think you need to think about de-cluttering and lending a bit more sophistication to this space... This is a good example of what I'm talking about...
