1)Do you look forward to spending time with your family?
2) What do you think when using the term ‘family time’?
1) Yes, but I don’t really plan time with family. It’s not something I dread though.
2) I think of home and I immediately feel happy because I know I’ll be 100% comfortable all the time when I’m there.
1)When I’m home sometimes it can be good spending time with family and sometimes it doesn’t I look forward to seeing family but for instance my mum side I haven’t seen in ages cause if conflict so there are reasons for that, but generally I do look forward to seeing family I guess
2) Well when I think of family I think of get togethers, talking and telling family what you’ve been doing-so sharing stories
1) I do look forward to spending time with my family. Everyone is always really busy including me in the family, and often during term and semester times we don’t always see each other that much even though we all live together. Last semester between uni,work,friends and interning sometimes I didn’t even see my little sister for four or so days and it was always strange! Whenever we always go on family holidays or outings we usually have a good time, so yes I do look forward to family time. However, having said that I usually prioritize other activities over family time , I guess it’s because I know it can be re-scheduled but you know
2)When I think of family (including my puppy of course), I think of home at the beach. I’ve got a good family life so I always think of an environment which is secure and relatively happy and comfortable and of course a family who will always be there for me and help me when I need it and support me in all I want to do. I think pop culture affects my way of thinking of family a bit because I always think of Offspring and the crazy family in Offspring - close friends and boyfriends and all that always end up being part of my family.
In this experiment I choose interview-style questions, and questioned about family, stemming from another one of my iterations which has the words ‘family-orientated’ in one of the drawings. I wanted to show with this experiment how even though broadly thinking family can be quite similar between people, there is always differences, whether they be great or small in the ways how certain people perceive things~ways of seeing!
