What can I even say about this video? It’s an hour and a half of toy design, but with the added benefits of hearing me talk about identity. Something I think is important to take way from this video is the idea that the version of me you seeing these videos isn’t real, it’s produced and carefully constructed. I have the ability to edit in or out anything I want and deliver a version of myself I feel is the most interesting or beneficial. I think this video does a good job of conveying this concept.
Toy Design Video
In this video Alex designs a toy for the Urban Paper Collective’s annual exhibition whilst battling a brutal hangover. Unlike other videos in the Let’s Design series this video shows the whole design process in real time whilst Alex commentates. The video takes a strange turn when deeper topics of “thew true self” and self identity come into the forefront.
