So, I meant to post this a while ago… but hey, none of this blog is in order…
The week beginning the 7th September – so shortly after I had just started here, we were put into groups divided between the entire faculty, so that included MA Graphics, BA Interior Architecture/furniture design, BA Fashion and, obviously, BA Visual Communication.
The brief was to create a cube (60cm x 60cm) that represented things you LIKED. So, collectively, we tried to find something we all liked. Quite quickly, we settled down to think about how we like to THINK relating to our creative studies and we decided we liked to think OUTSIDE the box. So we set about deciding how to show this… we decided we wanted to depict breaking out of the restrictions of a box – and initially we thought of using paint and having it explode from the box. This then turned out to be near impossible… so, with the help of a few contacts – we managed to get a hold of something even better.
Take a look at our final result – completely untested!
The video was filmed by Kristine Skarphol, a girl from my group who is an Interior Architecture and Furniture design student at KHiO. She managed to find us a ‘confetti bomb’, which is used in the movie industry. We didn’t have the chance to test it, as we only bought one – so we had no idea how loud or powerful the explosion would be. There were pieces of confetti stuck to the ceiling, so it was quite powerful considering it went through a sheet of thin paper too!!
Below is a photograph of the box after the explosion. There was golden pieces of confetti EVERYWHERE around the building…!

All photos posted were taken by Ingvild Abrahamsen, who was also in my group and studies BA Fashion at KHiO. There was an incredible range of boxes on show, everyone was really creative.
I even got to sit in one!!
