PART ONE | the task roulette:
LEARN A CARD TRICK AND AMAZE YOUR FRIENDS. MAKE FLOWERS OUT OF CUPCAKE PAPERS AND CONSTRUCTION PAPERS.
- TRY TO NAME THE KIND OF CARS THAT PASS BY.
PART TWO | how I solved it:
+ 2 tables of 3 rows and 4 columns with a cell of 4 units height and 4 units width, placed directly below each other,
+ 6 units from the top edge, vertically centred.
+ In the upper table, each cell represents one of the cars passing by, while the cells of the lower table represent my predictions.
+ I felt that, with the given task, sticking to the “kind of the car” will give me too many options thus, I changed it into “colour of the car”.
+ The colours were generalized into 7 possibilities: white, black, gray, red, blue, green and yellow, and transformed into a visual sign. (However, all –ish colours were recognised as one of the given options, where the orange and gold is considered as yellow and pink or purple as red.)
+ To increase the random factor, the guessing of the colour part of the task was replaced by lottery. The results were written into the upper table, starting with the upper left cell working across to the right.
+ Then I went out to the street and filmed the traffic until 216 cars have passed by, 12 for each book. (Cars in both directions have been taken into account.)
+ THE final drawing is thus divided into 2 parts. While the upper half contains a form corresponding to the actual colour of the passing by car, the lower half, shows which of them were correctly guessed; they are marked with a black square at the fitting place/cell.
PART THREE | few samples:
