Yesterday we presented our work on project one to a small group in the class. Their feedback was great, and helped me think of ways to better my examples of self-identity. They really liked my two videos and thought they were funny and creative. They also gave me ways to better some of my images, which I intend to do before I bring all my pieces together in the video. The other girls on my table had some cool ideas as well, with Georgia speed videoing a polaroid picture of herself developing. That was probably my favourite example used in the whole class, but everyone else had some very interesting ways of identifying themselves too.
When I was in grade 6 everyone all my peers had to write down something nice about their classmates. I remember the words smart, hard working and friendly being used over again, when it was time for my peers to write about me. I wonder if they’d be different now?
