I had full intentions of approaching the project this way. I figured I would do a work for each word and I had a vague idea for Identity. I was playing with the idea of “hello my name is” stickers with $ amounts instead of names and then somehow shatter people’s initial conception of the person who would match the $ amount. It just did not sit well with me. As I am looking back on it now I like it even less. No wonder I was not getting excited about it and could not tie it all together. In any case I started researching the word Identity. I was still not really inspired so I put the project aside for a while.
After a long time an idea incorporating all the words into one just came to me. I was waiting for my co-worker to pick me up for work one morning and I wrote down the 3 words. I didn’t over think it and just went with the flow.
Identity: Is how and what we identify ourselves with. This can and will most likely change a few times over our lifetime. Timeless: This of course means that our Identity is not Timeless, or rather constant, but rather the opposite, it changes with our day to day experiences. Gridlock: As our Identity chances we sometimes find ourselves at a loss when it comes to it. At times while undergoing identity changes we could feel a bit lost, confused and stressed out. After a long time an idea incorporating all the words into one just came to me. I didn’t over think it and just went with the flow. I am currently working on the final product. I will break down the project once I start posting the visuals for the project.
