Surfaces and Strategies Week 12 Feedback / by Chris Chucas

Getting feedback

I was really interested in finding out what people thought about the exhibition and the zine. The feedback I had in person on the night was positive but I wanted to reach out and get some feedback from people in a more distant way, perhaps it can be more truthful. I designed a google form to be filled out and shred the link to it on my facebok page and messaged it to friends that went. I had a few responses and in genral that fall into the same feelings I have.

Looking back over the Surfaces and Strategies module this term I've had some time to reflect upon these ways of engaging with the audience. I defiantly feel that these factors should be addressed on a project by project basis. In this project I have identified that I'm documentation the punk rock community as a member of it. So when thinking about who this project is for I've identified my audience as members of the community themselves. This was a major consideration when deciding on where and how to present the work. You can see more about that in my previous post here.

I would consider the feedback a good indication that what i'm setting out to do is working. I think I'll continue to make zines however I might look into printing them in a better format. The toner cartridges at home weren't as cost effective as I wanted and I have heard good things about a company called .

I really want to focus on reaching a wider audience and using the zines as a way of doing that. An additional thought was to run a promotion or some kind of sharable link on the facebook page to help reach more people. Aside from that I can't really think of anything else to mention about this module that I haven't already.
