This piece elaborates on travelling along the Silk Road and the amazing scenery there is to offer. It will show the China to Middle East side of Silk Road through landscape sceneries. Wanting to use a technique that is unique to China, I chose to illustrate the sceneries with ink and wash painting, which is unique to China’s concept of Four Arts of the Chinese scholar. This piece involves ink drops in water and wash and ink landscape paintings.
Art of Traverse – art of the travels in Silk Road, with the crossing over of cultural exchanges along the road. Inkverse – ink compositions of the piece that shows the travel journey in Silk Road.
PROTOTYPE / ASSETS
Done up a background to give the calligraphy paper effect. Added some stain spots.
Landscape calligraphy painting of scenery along Silk Road.
For design outcome 2 deliverable, it’s a sequel to design outcome 1’s booklet. I decided to do a board game, as an educational resource which I foresee can be played in school with fellow classmates, to learn about child sexual abuse.
Target Audience: Children aged 6 – 12 years old
As my target audience age range is relatively young, before adolescent age, I think board game will be a suitable way of engaging the children. By engaging them in an activity, they will be able to have fun and absorb information, as well as acting some actions out.
Within the game box, there are 6 characters – which means a maximum of 6 players, a dice, 4 set of cards and a game manual.
Classmates tried it and game was really successful! Game was engaging and educational, managed to solve the issue faced. However the craft work of the entire game was quite bad 🙁 Had to DIY the game board myself as it had folds to keep in the box, but I accidentally stuck the board sticker too fast, causing bubbles. The instructions on the cards were too small as well, tend to get overlooked. Perhaps can change the colour of the part, or make the font size bigger?
