Reflection (MinSun):

What does your inner critic say about this work? What did you learn? What would you do differently?

We went through lots and lots of trial and errors. Although we drew several sketches, thought about how to implement the structure pretty thoroughly, and prepared a lot beforehand, we still had to go through many troubles. One of those was regarding candles. We bought a pack of floating candles and we lit them up on water as soon as the installation time began, but they started to melt too fast that they were about to disappear entirely. But afterwards, we were told that we weren't allowed to put up candles, which was our original plan, because the library staff asked us not to do that. The candles were pretty important part of our installation, so we panicked at first, but we got through it.

We had lots of other errors that we had to fix, and from these exercises, I learned that installation work, unlike a static artwork, need lots more trial and errors than I ever thought. Our idea was very original and yet simple. So I thought it wouldn't take long to install it. But after encountering multiple problems on our way, I learned that it isn't as what I thought it would be.

If I had more time, I would've made a video with multiple fish swimming around. We were restricted to one fish because in the feedback session, we were told that making the interaction among fish would be extremely difficult for our level, so make it just one fish. However if I had more time I would've learned how to do that and implemented it. That would've made the installation more fun!
