PROJECT SUMMARY/DESCRIPTION
PLAN/NEEDS/IDEAS FOR WHAT YOU WILL SHOW IN LIBRARY...what do you need in terms of the space?
Elizabeth Mahon

Amanda Sutherland
The History Yacht Design and Fabrication from the turn of the 19th century
A paper discussing the shifts in boat building fabrication and the corresponding relationship between engineering vs design, as seen through through the lens of the sailing industry.
A visual representation of my project in the form of a circle of hanging photos which are relevant to the research I have done. The aim is to create a physical space in which people can come discuss my project and have many visual prompts to help them understand why I think the subject is so interesting. This stems from conversations I have already had with people about the subject, which are almost always prompted by them seeing photos I have and being interested enough to sit down in my massive circle of books to have a chat. For this I will need about an 8ft diameter circle of space, which of course could be smaller if necessary. It would also need to be somewhere with a reasonably low ceiling.
