Very similar to ours and it is going to be displayed on trains as public art.

Takes a similar humorous approach as our ‘John So for PM’ headline.

I just realised that i haven’t given an update about this on the blog.The process was rather painful, due to a miscommunication/interpretation/feel-free-to- redefine the website was not up to scratch on its due date (thursday 18th) despite a 10 day work period. This lead to desperate measures, a change of webdesigner. One that I should have approached from the start, considerations only being that this person is located overseas and it would have been much easier to communicate with somebody locally. Since that fell apart fantastically with barely anything working, the task went to my original choice. As of today, the website is working with only a few images missing (our ‘action shots’ which will be added in a few days). because the old layout didn’t work with the new template, a few changes have been applied. For the better.I am really sorry for the headaches i’ve caused the other girls because of this, and be rest assured that i have had my lesson learned about leaving things to the professionals no matter where they are located!! a couple of screenshots:   01-intro.png 04-action.png 02-about.png03-work.png 05-survey.png

Action Day & Night (Social Experiment) October 21, 2007

Posted by shell in PROCESS JOURNAL, RESEARCH.

We have now conducted our social experiment (also our third research method).

Last week we pasted up our false news headlines in a busy melbourne street (over night of course!) as well as plastering stickers around the location directing people to our website (see link below). Many thanks to the friends who helped us out with this task, it is much appreciated.

The following day we returned to the location to observe and interview members of the public viewing and interacting with our posters. In addition, we placed several more news headlines into ‘cages’ (used by newsagencies and stands) and placed them outside a bust train station to determine peoples responses. We found that many members of the public did stop and look at the cages, and that some believed them to be true. Others claimed that they wished some of the more serious headlines were true (‘Australia signs Kyoto Protocol’ and ‘Australia withdraws all troops from Iraq’). The issue we chose to cover are very topical, and generated interest despite the untrue nature.

Following this (and a spot of shopping and lunch!) we managed to ‘borrow’ 300 newspapers and insert our own fabricated articles in them. We proceeded to hand these out to unsuspecting members of the public. The inserts contained a link to our website, and the hope is that at lease some of those people who read the article will go online and complete the survey.

More results to follow.
