Design Intervention

These images were for a project on 'out of place' design. I had to capture something out of the ordinary with a strong concept behind it. I chose to look at music in my research and through my reading I found that music can help older people remember things from when they were young. This is especially common for people with Alzheimer's and Dementia. I chose to work with this idea and decided to photograph an older woman playing ping pong as if she was young again. In all the pictures I used some modern headphones to suggest she was reminiscing. This is also aided by the fact that she is not looking directly into the camera as if she is distracted by her thoughts. The old style of the wallpaper, dart board and books all help this image capture the feeling of remembering when you were young.
