The main idea of our group is the change and fit. Our group member are Kit Ying, Amy and me. We choose cafe to do the commune project. The main propose is through the eating habits of us to know each other from other side, also we try to without language communication to increase the understanding.We choose 3 different cafes at different locations. We meet at 11 in the morning, then we have 1 hours to chat with each other, understanding other's eating habits, and then order the food for them. We also eat one day according to each other's eating habits. Then in the afternoon, we will have an hour of activity. We have a small game to increase understanding and tacit understanding. For example, a person will think of words written on paper, and then show it to the second person. The second person need to perform to the third person with body languages. Only the third people can speak to guess the words. There are a lot of interesting things happened that let us know each other more. Then the rest of the time we painted alone, and eventually there were about 20 paintings per person. Each of us has a very different way of drawing, such as the exaggeration and colorful of kit. Amy likes to use pencils to describe details, and I prefer to use watercolor pens to make human cartoons. In the last 30 minutes of the day, we will conclude what we have learned today. How do we feel and decide what we will do tomorrow.
The environment has changed a lot in our paintings. We realized how the environment changes people's attitudes and what kind of people go to the which cafe. Because we go to 3 different cafes in different places. Like Starbucks, you will find that people usually come to work, usually they are alone, and they will not communicate with people nearby, and they will not stay long. The second cafes we chose were near our school. Then we found that people here are usually a group of people and they are talking about their projects and working together. The last one we chose was afternoon tea. The people here were talking about their lives and have a pleasant conversation. And the price of consumption is also high. These are the details which are usually not to be noticed. Through this activity, we can enlarge these details and let us pay more attention to life. Not only communicating with the people around us, but also communicating with the environment.
