Many things were learnt during this Mapping project of ‘paper project’. I could able to develop the capability of navigating the creative process and experience of it. The pattern of mapping gives the idea of reflecting to a professional way to creating and developing through the final process. For instance “Did I do good?” “Is it working?” feedback, “how to get there” and so on.
Here is the practices I did for integrated project before coming the idea of Final
That are the core system, the roller coaster chart and 100 blocks.
The process after following in-class and doing some feedback to it, I do another improvement such as:

Theme & Concept
It is matter of how we put the same thing together side by side. Creating an unspoken background within it. For instance, matching the room’s object or shape with the collection (showcase) or even a collection by collection with similiar theme.
Framing & Composition
By setting an horizontal line as tall as human standard sight in order to show the collection and label as people are standing in the exhibition.

Gundam, also referred to as the Gundam Series, is a science fiction med ia franchise created by Sunrise that features giant robots (mecha) called mobile suits, with titular mobile suits that carry the name Gundam.
I started to collect gundam model-kit from 2010 because I personally love to collect toys and action figures, not only model kits. Model kit is interesting because the model’s shape (robotic shape) and the fun while assembling its parts. I think it could help us to be more creative by assembling it and the cool part is many people modify the model kit such as over-paint, lining or even re-craft th e parts.

During the session on 13th April & 4th May 2017 , Many speakers come to unitec to share their experience in industry. Two speakers were caught my attention was Laura Lochhead and Jeff Thompson.
Laura is Interior designer and a founder of pocketspace Interiors Ltd. with team in Auckland and Sydney. She talked about of herself from Interior Architecture and her style of art. She now has design vast range of interior from small to large offices, showrooms, medical centers.
The things that caught my attention was how she make design with creative way such as using log she found useful from nowhere and backpacking it back to make it into seat of swing.
As someone who has graduated from the same field as Laura , I found fascinated that she could also make a clkspace that a website for a customer who wanted to design their space and what kind of modifying she and team could make the possibility to the space/room with specification of price and source. It is very efficient.
Jeff Thompson, a sculptor, an artist, corrugated iron man. He was an Art major graduation who really loves to draw and paint but end up as a sculptor with unique style and design. He has very cool way of sculpting using a corrugated iron roof. Making shapes by make it curve and dance.
While taking a break from his art studies. Thomson found himself somewhere in New Zealand near dunedin. During that time he decided to do adventure by his decision and by walking. While walking journey , Thompson started to observing and collecting the wealth of highway paraphernalia that he found on our roadsides. Until he sculpt a rural letterbox sculptures from corrugated iron which make him well-known for his work until now.
Most of his work are jaw-dropping, only by using corrugated iron roof stack/stand it side by side and sculpt an animal. From that he makes a sculpt by more realistic as he can by creating an metal/iron frame inside to make a stand then wrapped it with corrugated iron. Some of his works caught my attention such as the horses, the kangaroos at airport in Australia and a 6m tall Giraffe.
The Industry symposium giving an experience to learn from the expert and teach us how an art know no borders to be attained. Making connections and always to learn how to use everything around us in a right way.
