We then had to go back and to Greenwich University and talk over our ideas and work with our tutors and the group. This overall, was an excellent day as it got us out there exploring and thinking of ideas.

For the afternoon session of lesson one we had to chose our own space for our project to document our surroundings for example, people, sounds, smells, habits. I chose the Greenwich Maritime Museum as it has a lot of things happening for example; exhibitions. This means from my view point I am able to see people coming in and out of the museum and is going to be interesting to document.

Had my first Graphic Design Principles our tutors Nicki and Stacey explained our project "Sensing the city" and the brief which tells us to create a series of data visualisations communicating your space. My initial thoughts on this project is that it sounds exciting but also challenging. We then had our first lecture on "information is beautiful" which  showed us how to explain our surroundings in detail to someone.

This was my idea for " create a series of images that create a narrative or story." I chose to document people coming in the museum and which direction they go. I found this task ok however, I could of focused on one individual person instead of a group of different people.

Had my second lecture on "Image-ing"which was aimed to show us "how to explore the variety of techniques that you could draw upon to develop your image-making skills." We also got shown other artists and designers works. We went to our chosen spaces from 12:30 - 4:00 where we had to create eight different works for the 8 tasks set. I found this challenging to begin with but with after some extra explanation was ok.

This is my idea for task four which was " symbolise the most influential shapes." This idea did not work out as well as I had hoped because of the sketching.

This is my 2 attempts at task eight which is " document the foreground, mid ground, background in some way." This task did not work out as well as I expected because it looks plain and monotonous. I doesn't accomplish the task as it doesn't look that the background, mid ground, foreground doesn't go one in front of the other. Next time I could cut letters out in front of each other.

This was my first attempt at task seven which was "create an image every minute of the same view/objects/persons." My idea was to literal and I needed to think a bit more out of the box.

For task 7 I remade my idea, this idea works better and I have made it more precise with detailing the individual's timings at five different attractions within the museum.
