As a group we decided on the issue of water usage and misuse. My idea was a narrative sculpture of a hypothetical future where water is scarce. We decided on Cheney Lake for the location because of its relevance as a water source for Wichita and because it is frequented by many people, which will increase our artwork's effectiveness.
One benefit of working in a group was that my design was influenced and enhanced by my teammate's ideas. Another benefit was that our background knowledge of the issue complemented each other, allowing us to address the issue more in-depth. There were also some challenges. I realized that you shouldn't put too much time into a proposal because the group may not decide to use your idea. However, we didn't have a problem choosing between different ideas; everyone was willing to work on the idea of the other.
