A New Chapter - Wacky Races

The Wacky Art & Design Students!

As I said in my previous post, I've started University & it's a new chapter in my life. We got given a mini group project, nothing serious, something to break the ice. The project was based on the cartoon series 'wacky races'. In each group of 5-6 people we had to come up with some wacky designs/themes of racing carts that we were then going to create & put together out of random stuff we found around Central London, the uni or buy at shops...Each group had a starting point somewhere around London (not toooo far from the uni) and had to race back to the uni completing about 5 different tasks e.g record your team asking a member of the public what they like about London & why. My teams theme was a princess bed, and we wore are the pics below....

Our Starting Point, Piccadilly Circus
We got Tourist attraction

Some more tourist attraction

With a busker in the London Underground

It was such a funny & surreal experience....I wonder what other projects my course has in store for us! Would you be brave enough to do something like this????...
