Hi, my name is Jye Miin and I'm from Malaysia. I'm a graphic design/illustration student. This is my blog for assignments, personal projects and things that I do on my usual days. Have fun browsing!!!
Degree Project 2 Proposal
In this project, I want to explore how our thoughts shape us. The experiences we have and the things we learn along our life are important in how we perceive life. Our thoughts ultimately determine our attitude towards life. The project explores the negative self-talk we have in our head and the lies that it makes us believe of ourselves. Negative thoughts are natural but how we manage them will make a difference. The project is targeted towards young adults and adults from ages 20-30 years old because in those stages, we’re supposed to know who we are and figure out what we want in our life. Many people let past experiences, influences from other people and environment around them to control and define who they are. We are our own worst critic and sometimes we let our demotivating thoughts stop us from achieving our dreams.
The design is supposed to make people aware of their thoughts and how they could see the truth behind those negative thoughts. Eventually, learn to let those thoughts pass and not let it affect who they are. This project is not about preaching positive thinking; it is about accepting failure, discontentment, embracing insecurities and enjoying uncertainties. That is the only way that we can fully embrace life with all its ups and downs.
An installation piece which is a conveyor belt with a long reel and posters to show the negative thoughts we have and the duality of positive thought and negative thoughts. Also to let the audience be aware of their own thoughts, so they can realize that they are the author of their own story. There is also a website to help people realize their negative thoughts are lies, along with 3D glasses.
You are the author of your own story.
