This project is a satire booklet consisting of 20 steps on ‘how to ruin the GCC’.
All the steps are factual and actually did happen. The creator is pro Qatar and poking fun at all of the things the blockading countries did to Qatar. The language is ironic and is not meant to be taken seriously at all. The style of this booklet is minimal and consists of mostly only illustrations. It is a political message belittling the countries that blockaded Qatar.
After several group critiques & critiques with my professors, i used guidelines for my final A1 poster.
The sentence is purposely place like that as if it was a cut, i wanted the paragraph to be gathered in one placed and not separated.
About the design process? About time management?
1. Brief description:
Our group created an environment which invites the viewers into a space directly linking Le balloon rouge to the blockade of Qatar. We presented 3 iPads on each side of the wall, the 3 iPads on the right are purposely bigger than the 3 iPads on the left, this is because we wanted the audience to focus more on the blockade and listen to what is played. We played with senses all the music and sounds were purposely overlapping each other to make the audience feel attacked (Just like how Qatar was attacked by the blockading countries.) At the end of our installation the Quranic verse is presented ان مع العسر يسرا with hardship comes ease.
We researched the videos as our ideas are simple and if we wanted to carefully execute it and pick it so that the audience would make direct comparisons to each.
How the movie is really related to the blocked in terms of bullying mostly.
Multimedia, lighting creating physical space, fabric, vinyls, paper, drilling, hangers, ropes, wood, paint, glossy spray
2. One of our main concerns was that the audience wouldn’t understand what we were trying to convey. However they understood how the GCC crisis could be related to the Red Balloon being bullied. Another concern that we had as a group was, how is the audience going to know where they were supposed to go, would they pay attention to the gold and silver lines we places? Or just walk through and not look down? Other than that, we managed to solve all our other problems in a way that articulates what we envisioned when finalizing the ideas.
3. We told the audience to follow the path on the floor to know which screens to look at first.
4. We honored our audience instead of belittling their intelligence, we made a direct link to the movie and blockade for our audience to connect the dots which we think was very successful because everyone understood it.
I can honestly say it was a satisfying feeling bringing my idea to life. The moment i heard all 6 iPad play together was the moment i felt all our hard work payed off.
we wanted everything to be minimal, we payed attention to little details and edges and clean floors, as mentioned before we wanted to keep the colors minimal.
