The ideas we can up with were to hire some maps out and scan them, so we wouldn’t ruin them. Then buy some acetate and create a trail in which the penny travels. Kat came up with the idea of getting a small ball and painting it and rolling it on the acetate to show that a route of a penny it random. Then to display this trail we were going to stick a penny trail other the acetate, to see was sort of images we could get. For an extended project as well I was thinking of doing a satellite viewing of following the penny’s movement in a programme like Flash.
We hired out a map of
Plymouth and a map of
Britain so we could do a smaller and then a larger scale map.
But when we discussed this idea with Mike he told us how he didn’t want it to be a random story of something and that it had to be a real map of something, but he did like the idea of the tracking idea that we had going on, so it was back to the drawing board.
