For my Doodle4Google I decided to go with the theme of Technology. I wanted to brainstorm the future of our society based off where we are now and where we can be with a good amount of inspiration and ambition. My Doodle4Google was made to highlight technology that will better connect and bring us together with ideas ranging from space travel to mars to teleporter. I created my piece by brainstorming ideas onto a mind map and transferring those ideas into multiple sketches.
In the future i predict that technology will advance in ways that will help us connect with each other easily. I see things that will close the gap between humans faster such as teleporters and holograms. I also believe that technology will help with our growing population by allowing us to move out to other planets. I hope to see the space programs of the world push us further than we have ever been. I also would love to see and advancement in expanding our senses with vision enhancements such as X Ray glasses. I think we will find world peace if we have stricter qualifications for the people in charge of the different countries by having electronic databases to keep track of everyone's government experience.
Earth Art: 1 Month LaterA month after completing our earth art, I went to check on it..
And it was gone! I'm glad we took pictures of it, because there are no traces it was ever there.
What is Fun Theory? Well, Fun Theory is the idea that if you boring alternatives to everyday life (using stairs instead of escalators) a fun occasion then more people will choose to do it. If i were to explore fun theory i would try to find a way to make washing clothes a more fun experience. I would do this by adding a monitor with fun mini games to the washing machines and dryers. You could play the games while waiting for your clothes to be washed. That is a process i would redesign to turn a mundane/unpleasant task into one that is more fun.
This ted talk was very inspirational. Phil Hansen, the speaker talked about his struggle with creating art due to a shake in his hand. This caused him to give up on art and lose his ambition to make creations. Eventually through "embracing the shake" Hansen was able to go on to find his voice. By using the thing that once held him back he was able to create techniques that allowed him to create like he's never before. This goes to show that your most powerful inspirations and motives are your own weakness and struggles.
