Hello, so this is going to be a little glimpse into the thoughts and things around some projects. Right now I'm exploring the topic of atmosphere and how objects within the home can influence it. Hope you enjoy 

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.
