Exhibition day, 24 May

The grade 10 personal project exhibition was being held in bamboo, started from ten until three o'clock. The exhibition went out quite well, and there were a plenty of people who visit my personal project booth, and filled my surveys. From the 42 surveys I have prepared, 36 of the surveys are filled/done already by the visitors, with 6 surveys left. My intention is to raise awareness to people, about cosmetic surgery issues. The intention of this painting is to destroy the nowadays negative media pressure that tells how beautiful women nowadays should look like. It seems my goals has been achieved, by seeing from the survey results.

Seeing from the surveys result, shows that so far, my painting's final product has demonstrated a successful work through the exhibition, and has achieved my goals and specification. Since there are at least more than twenty positive opinions about my painting, based on the surveys' result. Even though the painting was exhibited in front of small group of community, which makes the exhibition to be the definite point of my painting to fully achieve its goal of raising awareness in community. A plenty of my booth's visitors said positive things about my painting, such as that the painting is a fantastic artwork, and has a real sophisticating and meaningful concept of cosmetic surgery awareness. The painting has successfully raised an awareness of cosmetic surgery, delivered its message toward the visitors, along with my presentation about cosmetic surgery issues as a support.

 Although there are also some opinions that stated, if the painting is too vulgar, showing too much nudity, and disturbing. Different people have different varieties of opinion, since the painting is relative. In order not to bring much controversial of the exposed nudity, the painting is hidden behind the advertising board, with a closed curtain as the way for people who want to see my painting to enter.

I continued my painting after school, and finished the background color. I also re-do and fixed some parts, added a touch of playful color effect inside the background darkness. It took me a long time to finish the background, since there was a lot of re-do and fixing to do. The colorful effect around the mirror, and as the lightning effect in the background gives a playful impression.

In order to know, whether my my product has achieved its successful requirement or not, list of specification is needed to be created. The main goal of this project, is to make people understanding the ethical issues of cosmetic surgery, and understanding the concept and message from my painting, to prove it as an affective visual media. In order to find out the success of my product, I'm aiming to achieve for at least 10 comments from the visitors, during the exhibition time, that shows their understanding of my painting's concept, which is about cosmetic surgery's issues. I'm going to create a list of surveys about my final product, which the visitors can freely write about their thought and understanding about my painting. If there are for at least 10 positive comments from the visitors, who show their understanding of the painting's concept, that is the point when my final product has successfully achieve the goal. While if it's possible, it would be great to sell my painting with a price of at least 5 million rupiah.

Personal Statement

During period 2 at homeroom, Ms. Liz just explained to us, the outline for personal statement, and what are the things we're supposed to write for the report. I started to write my personal statement, started with the introduction of my project's topic, which is about cosmetic's surgery ethical issues. Meanwhile, I'm also doing my painting (which is the product's result), at the same time. I'm still at the stage of doing my product, so I'll just start to describe my topic first in the personal statement.
