Proposal 2.0

“Wood-Finding”

Way finding is all around us. It allows us to effectively navigate through the places we find unfamiliar. These systems have become crucial aspects of our everyday way of life. However, they unfortunately fill our cities with signage that often lack clarity, environmental awareness and creativity through design. With this idea, I am proposing a method that incorporates these three aspects that otherwise constrain the systems full effectiveness and intent.

By using local wood found in the surrounding areas of Kalamazoo, Michigan, I will conserve resources that would otherwise be environmentally costly. Awareness of this fact will be documented on the piece along with the date and location in which it was collected. Using a creative approach, I will design a system that is not only effective and easily understood, but also appealing and complementing to the city that surrounds it.
