I think part of the assignment should include an essay (oh no, a writing
project!) Maybe just have a standard form that people fill out to prompt a verbal response in addition to their imagery response.
The interaction afterwords that we used to do was great. I think everyone should comment on each person's work. (praise in addition to critique.)
Maybe you can have other people write the assignment instead of putting the burden on you. Get the structure laid out, get the participants, then let it grow on its own.
> 1) WHITE BLUE RED
obvious, color. Many metaphorical possibilities
> 2) CHADOU ("way" of tea)
huh? please explain
> 3) REFLECTION
Cool, fun challenges await.
> 4) CHANGE (Waiting, Persistance, Choice)
All too familiar. Change is good, change is bad, change is change.
> 5) DOORWAY
I like it, one of the most important architectural features with many metaphorical possibilities.
> 6) CONFLICT
Interesting, could be pretty challenging. Perfect!
> 7) TIME
I suggested this one because photography stops time, however with some creativity, it can beautiful capture it.
