2010-12-06 // // Arts // "Trust" mentored by Ted Noten

Ted asked us that change one word from trust which were traceable, relevant, underatandable, sustainable, transparent.

 I changed tranceable into traditional. One of the meanings of traceable is that something can find out where comes from. I connected this meaning with traditional which is also traceable and people easily trust traditional designs.

 Even though people have developed many designs thoughout centuries,  people prone to trust traditional things.I searched the reason why people traditional things trust, for example people still buy furniture which looks like 17 century chairs or cabinets from IKEA. I concluded that is because they are familiar and people could feel a connection from past to present.

Therefore, I started to play with traditional things at the present point of view.
