My experience with the timeline challenge was chaotic. It was helpful to set up time periods from the 1700s to 2000s. I learned that we do not work as well together in a small and crammed space. We used different colors of string to show patterns of materials. Michael’s idea of doing a chart was clever to put the patterns in order and show what materials were really important in different times. By learning about what materials were most important throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, my sense of design shifted by gaining knowledge of the most usable products and materials of the specific times in history. The five different colors of string were used to show the five different objects/buildings chronologically. We put up our pictures of materials, spaces, places, and buildings where we had our chair cards outside the interior room.
