Journal entry 3

Stefan Sagmeister shares happy design – happy experiencing design – example the authors photos on the back of the design or covers photographs of their faces show the happiness of their design. Pieces about the visualization of happiness and not about happiness. 3 designs that have happiness signs about safety created to make someone happy or intriguing creating an interesting visual for viewers to look at. Another example is a square room that opens up and insides watching the changes in to color of the sky and the reaction that people see when they can see the beauty of the sky changing. Another is speech bubbles and people go and fill them in and get to express their feelings and create joy to others worrying without pressure trying to brake out of the studio and work in other areas and see different angles of life and enjoy the end results of your art. Everything I do always comes back to me and to allow the design of your work to reflect the work, and everything always works out for me. How do you think about the materials you use for the words?

Alwar balasubramniam: Art of substance and absence – open and aware of our surroundings. Explore the character of the past is what makes up what you are today. Creating art about how you feel and creating something that feels like oneself. How are there ways to capture an object and are there many ways to capture objects. Try to understand the trace of something then when we try to understand what it is we interpret them from our old interpretations. Are we trying to understand what it is or what we think it is, like a joke many interpretations for one thing. What we see is just what we think and most of the time we don’t think what it is but it is just our perception of something. Meaning doesn’t exist its just created by the mind by what we have been taught. Anyway to capture the thought into a visual art. We see the source of the light and when it is bouncing but we don’t see the light rays in between. We don’t see dark and light and gravity and electricity. What made you think of using your body as the mold?
