Summary of what we are doing and what we have been doing:
What we have been doing for the last few days has been brainstorming and creating ideas for our exhibition. We have been making prototypes for the ideas we would like to see implemented into the exhibition and worked on creating posters and emails to receive feedback on these prototypes. We voted on which idea sounded the most promising and found out which one won today. The winning idea was to create a sociology maze of sorts. The idea was designed to introduce socialization to the community by giving them some base knowledge on the topic and introducing a way to create change by showing a example of how to break this cycle by going through the maze.
What are the problems this exhibition is trying to address?
The problems this exhibition is trying to address is how we need to break the cycle of socialization. This is such an important issue to address because in our modern society people are being told to fit these certain standards and are having their self confidence and self respect destroyed in the process of fitting these standards.
What are you excited about doing for exhibition? WHY?
What I am most excited about for this exhibition is getting the word of socialization out to the members of community. Socialization is a force that normally stays in the shadows and is not noted by most people who have their everyday life affected by the grueling cycle. A role I am excited about doing is videography. I have always been interested in filmmaking but have never been able to incorporate it into a project which is something that I have always wanted to do. I feel like incorporating a film into the project will allow members of community to have a deeper understanding of socialization and understand how big of a problem the cycle of socialization really is.
