When we were ask to do a studio project regarding a political theme, I immediately thought of feminism and gender equality. Since last semester, I have focused on oppression of women today. As I research for this project, I focused on theme of rape culture but my ideas have evolve to violence and abuse. I reflect quite a bit of “why?” Why was I was doing this project? And so this is where Taped Stories came in. There was some recall experiences of gender degrading and objectifying. This was a theme that I have to still explore for myself. I hope to make a small differences as I build up courage to share my story.
Here are my business card that I will be handing out:
Here is the print versions: (delivered on Friday 3/26/17)
I think the color are a little bit darker, and the images printed are not as smooth and sharp. Overall, the service is very professional and fast. And it is good enough to be use.
I divided the business card into 5 and 10, ready to be given out. Postcards will be posted in close areas. Student Sierra suggested to have them in bathroom stalls. I will searched out certain bathroom that has a smaller space to drop off one or tape some on the bathroom stall door.
Getting ready for April 2nd:
I brought three small pocket notebook to record daily experiences, interaction and emotion. I will be using the darker notebook because it has 200 pages. The notebook will also be my way to communicate with people as well.
I also created a google doc to have classmates, roommates and friends sign up to help me record my daily activities.
