Since not everyone can travel when desired you can always travel in your mind to unknown destinations by fantasizing or reading books about other cultures and far away destinations.
What kind of images could people have in their mind when thinking of being somewhere else, doing something totally different?
I wanted to create an insightful look in the mind of different kinds of people (see: personality types) to show that most of us dream of things others would not even think of. I opened up (literally) the minds of some of the figures on the display like the insight you get in others peoples life when reading a book. Timeframes were not relevant and I crossed cultures, time and gender.
While working on the posters my imagination grew wilder and wilder and often I grinned while imagining what I could add to make it even more hilarious.
What you need:
- a huge imagination
- courage to try something unfamiliar
- a bit of extra time and space to prepare the posters
- copies of (enlarged) images from library books or internet
- different colours card and paper
- large size coloured card
- pink and blue wrapping paper
- tools: blu-tack/ tape/ stapler/ scissors/ guillotine/ ruler/ glue stick
What to do:
Take an image you choose and look how you can make it 3D. Place it on the poster. Find slogans referring to reading and books and cut and paste them to the poster. Don’t be shy, make it funny or unusual or even scary. Use book stories or magazines articles to make your poster more adventurous. Copy ideas from this website display and use them to your own advantage, it will make me proud; photos are welcome.
This display contains all the elements I describe in: Tips for creating displays. I used unusual colour schemes, created 3D effects, used the offcuts to connect images and text and stepped out of the box of traditional thinking while letting my imagination grow wild.
Seeing my ideas coming together in this bright 3D display was a fantastic journey.
