In terms of all the projects we carried out during this course, I think this one was my least favorite. Not because of what we were assigned to do, but because of the group I was assigned to complete the project with. The project itself was a great idea, exploring an area I’ve never been to a transcribing the most interesting parts about it, I greatly regret not fully committing to that idea. The reason I didn’t particularly enjoy my group was because of the widespread lack of motivation, I didn’t want to be bossy and constantly tell them to work, it just didn’t seem like they felt enthusiastic about this assignment. When one is surrounded in this environment, getting work done yourself is difficult. There’s absolutely nothing unpleasant or wrong with the people within my group, it’s not that I think they’re bad people, as they demonstrated great work in the previous assignments. I suppose that’s what bothered me, the fact that I knew they could produce great work but didn’t share the same effort for this one. additionally, the visit to our location was a bit irksome because it felt so rushed, in terms of time we spent there we only spent approximately two hours walking around, when really we should’ve stayed a whole day taking in the atmosphere. It was difficult constructing a project out of so little experience and material. Am I guilty of not trying to stay longer? Absolutely, I suppose I was a bit afraid of being the one to take initiative, because they’re often thought to be the most pushy and annoying within a group. However, during this trip, I was able to capture some of the atmosphere in: Coney Island
In full honesty, I don’t have any pictures of the product, however, I do have some sketches pertaining to the dimensions of the book.
Overall, I definitely regret not putting enough effort into this assignment.
