In IED we are currently doing a group project based on exhibition design. We have to base our idea on the jute industary in dundee. As a group we have decided to look into the past, present and future of the landscape of dundee and how this has changed. trying not to make this like a history project!! We have decided to view and collect numbers of the mills in dundee and the chimneys that started to appear on the horizon over the years of the jute industary. I feel these are a really strong landmark of dundee, individual to it as a city. When standing at the top of the law, looking over the city this becomes apparent.
Reasearch into exhibition design has been proving really interesting and exciting!! There is a lot of scope to make it really individual and conceptual as well as having an educational aspect aswell. I feel that some form of abstract, conceptual map may be really interesting, something that the user can walk around, through and on top of. Also wanting to incooperate the present and future, with the viewer being the present is the current stage of investigation and development.
