This past week I have been focusing on my printed piece. This is the main component of my project I don't feel that I have spent enough time on it unfortunately. I have been putting a lot of attention towards my web component which I feel is completely necessary, but I should have more diligent on working on the printed fold out.
With all of that being said, I must keep trucking along. I can't go back and change anything, but I can push forward at a better pace. I am really excited about the printed piece so far. I know that it will just get more refined in the next week and hopefully completed!
I have also taking note on how to best represent this project as a final product. I think having a short video component would be nice and a clear way to represent this system and how it was inspired. The video will exist online and really be for presentation purposes. Having a printed piece I have been bouncing around with ideas and how to help viewers understand the concept. A large part of the project was and is inspired by trip to Serbia. I plan to take viewers on my journey and the steps I took and my thought process to get the point where I am today. The interviews, educational aspect, final product and why the artifacts are necessary. For the senior show I was initially thinking a poster to pull people to the project and help explain it. I know that space is limited, so it will probably turn into statement sitting on the table to help explain the system.

This is a first stages of representing Jelena's values.
I have been playing around with pattern making. The patterns in traditional Serbia clothing have a lot of pattern.
The patterns seem to stretch visually in a horizontal manner. I wanted to modernize their traditional patterns.
