Identifying Where | Starting with the ‘base’
Where the ‘base’ is situated is a crucial factor and will affect how people approach and interact with the design. So understanding how and where people collect these artefacts is essential.
there were three places which I had identified as areas which could be interesting: the wall (acting as a shelving unit and an alternative switch, a centrepiece (glorifying the artefacts) and then a mantlepiece (residing in the background).
“Well I don’t like having them as a centrepiece because they’re personal... to be honest, they tend to stay on the shelves or the periphery of the room” ~ Lynne Buchanan
With this key insight, my opinion is leaning towards a ‘base’ which is integrated into shelves/ mantlepiece, however other designs need to be explored and trialled before a decision can be made.
