The first week of the PayInnDisplay project is in the books. It has been fantastic to get to know everyone better and some brilliant work has been produced in the process.
Today has primarily been about building upon the work that was started yesterday, articulating and finalizing the weeks outputs: an exploded axonometric, a zine, and a series of informative Instagram posts. Each of these three outputs have sought to illustrate the notion of The Farmers’ Arms acting as a ‘living museum’ and orchestrate a journey around the building whereby the visitor is exposed to many of the key artefacts that bare historical importance in the C17th inn (both in terms of the objects and the architecture). Working in small teams divided by output, there have been regular cross-overs and check-ins between groups to ensure all three outputs are working together in a seamless and conjunctive manner, and can be easily utilized as tool when visiting the inn.
The day culminated in a collective virtual round-table presentation and discussion of the three key outputs, as well as a reflection on the whole experience of the first week as the PayInnDisplay project moves into the next phase.
