FINAL DAY!!! The installation is complete with the spoons hanging and tied from a small pipe just before the lifts. Initially we recorded some people ignoring the installation, thinking that it shouldn't be touched. However with some encouragement, with the sound of the spoons there was a more playful element which arose. We also noticed that when there was more than enough people walking by, someone wold just touch it and create a musical tone, which intrigued the person to interact with the installation further. In Reflection, we noticed that or someone to interact with it further, it would be a better idea to have placed the spoons on the whole crossing with shorter lengths. However overall we did achieve our main aim for people to interact with the installation musically.

Day 2: We began to further develop our ideas throughout the day. We established the we would only use part of the site by adding in hanging 'instruments' where the person could pass by and interact with the site by simply running their fingers along the strings which would make a 'chime' noise.

Day 1: Visited the site and watched how the space was used. We saw how the people only used the space for a matter of seconds.
By the second half of the day we presented our ideas in individual groups of 3's and 4's.
