It’s a plaque day

So today (Tuesday 18th) was the big day!

Logan and I met up before we had to present and placed all the plaques in there appropriate positions. As Logan stated it gave us a little adrenaline rush as we felt sticking the plaques up was a mild form of graffiti, similar to Melanie’s last project. We wanted to stick it up as quickly as possible so it wasn’t obvious who we were or where the plaques where coming from. A lot of strange looks occurred and the odd swearing from and older tradie looking man (its true, im not being stereotypical haha). I did like that the plaques did draw some attention, people did notice them and were reading them. Below are the images in their final positions:

I think the walk went really well. It was interesting to walk back and see how some were taken, some were completely gone, others had fallen down and the others were still perfectly in place. Logan lead everyone on the path of our project but neither of us pointed or looked at the plaques and just waited to see if the others picked up on them. I was at the back of the group and I honestly loved watching everyone’s reaction when seeing the plaque. I loved that the plaque actually made people stop and read it or made them laugh or made them take photos of it. And of course my favourite was when people began to observe and generate opinions one them (such as the ever wise Rob). Below is a few images of peoples reactions:

Overall I think the project went really well and I shall reflect more, in depth, in my final reflection post!
