Final outcome: Takeaway postcards

I considered again about the exclusion of the filming of the live event, as I didn’t want a video playback to dominate the viewer’s experience in the booth and detract from a deeper connection with my exploration of the landscape. I personally enjoy a takeaway from an exhibition, to offer a later reflection on the initial experience and to provide more context to the exhibit. Therefore, I decided to design and print a set of postcards with a QR code to the drone video footage to give my audience the opportunity to further appreciate my work in the wider landscape.

One side of the postcard has a vertical set of coloured lines, the colours being taken from the colours of the mud samples I collected along the course of the river. A dotted line of the path of the river is also included along with my Instagram handle. On the reverse is the DH Lawrence quote that first attracted my attention to the river and I believe is the only direct reference Lawrence makes to the name of the river.

I have purposely combined a historical literary context and cutting edge drone technology as this mirrors the very nature of my project – the infiltration of human development on a natural landscape so I think this will enhance the viewer experience post their live viewing of the exhibition.
