Surprise Project

This was the result of a brief from MA Sequential Design/Illustration to plan and deliver a surprise to the rest of the MA group. Since the objective was so broad I was overwhelmed by the possibilities. I kept returning to the basic definition of surprise (To cause to feel wonder, astonishment, or amazement, as at something unanticipated) instances when I'd been surprised, what I think of when I hear the word surprise. What I finally I hit upon is the notion of winning something.

After the PowerPoint I presented these £1 lucky dip toys I bought and carried out a lottery, pulling names out of a pot which meant there were three 'lucky' winners. It's the purest notion of surprise that I have; the immensity of pre-gift potentiality the moment before curiosity is satisfied. The image you build in your mind which is invariably greater than the actuality.
