I found it fairly easy to find inspiration for my project on the Lancaster trip, however I am now finding it difficult to decide which pieces of research are the most valuable, as I have looked at so many reasons for human attachment to personal possessions. This has made me realise that my concept is currently too broad, as it is more effective to have a focus during primary research. To solve this problem, I am going to write a list of all my ideas on my FMP blog so far and choose the three which interest me/ have the most potential to develop into a meaningful final piece.
To choose between my 3 focused concepts, I aim to design a questionnaire and create 3 quick development pieces, as this will enable me to see which concept generates the most ideas and has the most potential to develop into a meaningful final piece. If I become stuck for ideas with any of the concepts, I will be able to eliminate this choice, as I should have enough ideas to quickly create visuals to represent my concepts. Once I have eliminated at least one of my concepts, I think it would be useful to create mind maps to push my ideas further and think about how I would like to direct my project.
