My outcome will be a total of 15 tiles, 7 illustrated on and 8 plain white tiles as they will be placed in 3 rows of 5 tiles in the form a rectangle.
The purpose of this project is to create a story made of tiles. The public to who this project is addressed is young professionals and students that are currently sharing a flat and people that like me have are or have faced these little issues within an household. The people in question could see themselves and their experience in London and not only in this story made of tiles.
The tiles, ironically don’t denounce the big factors of sharing a house with other strangers. As we all know what these issues are and have accepted them by deciding to keep living in the UK or other big cities – high rent compared to minimum wage, smaller and smaller rooms – but instead they denounce the untold flaws (by agencies or private landlords) that a person could find while stuck with flatmates that sometimes just don’t match. A household contract does not reveal information of this type as is not of their interest. But instead these smaller factors are present in a shared house/flat in which a person can only adapt to live with or ironically get these tiles as a form of a “gentle” reminder for a respectful living situation. There is, of course, a personal choice on the factors that have bothered me the most through the years, but the factors could be infinite, as every person has different experiences. I will also announce the fact of not liking the sharing flat situation as a 27 years old, and that this is the reality we live in, and the options are to keep doing our best and laugh about the rest.
