For the first project back at uni, using any media, I have to design an A3 poster that demonstrates the significance of numbers.
Numbers are significant as they add meaning and use it in our everyday lives. This theory we developed has helped with new technologies as well as monitoring time passing.
My first initial thoughts for this brief was the number of letters in words, and the average which is apparently 4.5. So showing for example, 5 letter words on the poster with the last letter cut in half.
I went onto think about the various conversions, such as lengths, areas, money etc. So for example in length conversion, take the centimetre width of A3, 29.7cm and convert that into millimetres, metres, yards, miles etc.
This next is what I wanted to explore further which is infinity. I thought about showing the connection between infinity and the universe incorporating the infinity symbol. The universe is debatable whether it’s finite or infinite, so it would engage with the viewer effectively. I also thought about the balance of births and deaths in the world, and how it goes on and on. Another aspect is time, as numbers are a measure of time which has been developed by us humans to help us with minutes, hours, days, months etc. Time is infinite so using the numbers of a clock to go around the infinity symbol to emphasise this connection.
