Day 16: Heavy Exploration
Today was really an important day for my Inquiry Project. As the knowledge that phase 3 would be due on Wednesday sunk in, we all sort of clicked that there was work to be done. After signing out with Fay, we walked along a small path, and she pointed out many messages that she found interesting, as well as gave me some insight on it and her personal opinions. After snapping a new few photos, we discussed possible ways the inquiry project would head. Eventually, we wandered to Mr. Yang's jade shop and asked about his opinions. The first thing he pointed out was some writing on the wall that dated back to 1964, 30th of January. It was astounding to see the words, so long ago, still clear and easy to read as if it were just written the day before. This made me think about why the other propaganda, new ones, weren't as well protected. Walking back, I discussed this with Fay. With Eirean, I stopped by the other Mr. Yang's place, the antique dealer. There he showed me other types of propaganda such as pins, bowls, cups, and posters. This got me thinking about the other types of propaganda, besides the ones written on walls. Overall, today really helped me find a path for my final project as well as the hooks and hangers. I hope that tomorrow will be as productive.
