Inspiration for the second box
Robin Monotti & Mark Titman: WATERING HOLES, The Royal Parks, London
Was very inspired by this fountain that I came across at Holland Park because of how it was perforated making the holes in it very large, large enough so that the people would be able to send their heads inside to drink the water.
This idea of being able to have human body parts move within the sculpture immediately struck a chord and I started to imagine the same for my piece. I think what I loved the most about this sculpture was the fact that it was in the middle of the park and was accessible to everyone, which is my one of ideas to have every day people in the two vinyl boxes.

Variation on the form of an anchor" by Tristram Hillier
The "overwhelming scale" of the structure depicted in Hillier's painting inspired the large scale of our vinyl boxes as we wanted to achieve a similar impact on our viewers of eye-catching overwhelming. As well as this the ambiguity of the structure as well as the perforation helped me to communicate to the rest of my group how I pictured our vinyl boxes to appear to viewers by showing them this painting.
Was very interesting in the work of Tom Baber in how he creates the letters by hand and then gets them printed out in a very ancient style.
I would say that when he overlaps his letters repeatedly really draws my attention because it makes the letters look more abstract and as if they are flowing on each other.

The meaning of my word
This was one of my letters that inspired me to create my final design. What I like about this letter is the geometric shapes and cuts on them. Equally like how the gap between the two letters are very visible and someone makes it more abstract and different. I chose this letter because I can it had the most potential to create the 4 other letters using this same aesthetic.

We started this project by having to looking at three different words that each had their on meaning. However the task was to be inspired by this words (pessimism vinyl and perforate) and to come up with ideas that combines all the three words together.
At first, looking in to the word pessimism was a bit tricky because I didn't know what the actual meaning of the word was, but however, after finding out what the true meaning of the word was, I decided to look at the mentally aspect of it and wanted to highlight the difference between pessimistic and optimistic people.
Own image of a Perforated object
Because my process was perforate, and my material was vinyl, I stared to look at different ways in which I combine these two words and create something that shows them both in a positive way.
I started to look at some of the objects around me that were perforated and was also looking for objects that were vinyl. Doing this research, I discovered that these two things hardly get combined and threw out I just kept thinking of how to make that happen.
Being very inspired by the metal perforated objects around the room I started to think of how I could have perforated vinyl to show a negative and positive aspect of pessimism.

As a result, Tom’s projects play on the strength of an apt typeface, and often, typography is the only visual element in his projects. This is seen in the overlaying of one typeface repeatedly in a hot pink, and Tom’s book, New Faces: Typographic design in the twenty-first century”, where a bold sans serif is brazenly printed on to cloth binding.
Inspiration form a BAUHAUS painting.
With this Bauhaus painting, I was inspired by the way the geometric shapes were all overlapping creating a very distorted piece of art.
I also was captivated by the very vibrant the colours and the way in which they it was arranged. I think the fact that not all the shapes had colour makes the image subtle not overwhelming but just enough to get the viewers’ attention.
