‘Everything is fascinating. You just have to look hard enough to see it.’ Andy Warhol

In this brief we were informed that an essential design skill was the ability to find a degree of interest in a social group that perhaps are usually ignored or considered boring. This is particularly true of society: the media industry only considers a small minority of people as ‘viable subjects.’

Initially I was thinking about approaching allotment owners, thinking along the lines of ‘Largest Vegetable’ competitions seemed to conjure up some interesting imagery and eccentric characters. However, it soon became apparent that this was the wrong season for that subject to be ‘fruitful.’

After a trip home I remembered a group of people that I’d always enjoyed listening to, a Barbershop Chorus. Ever since watching The Music Man when I was little I had thought it an unusual but addictive sound, my Grandad used to belong to a group in Crawley.

I was extremely pleased when I stumbled across a female group who rehearsed in Bristol, The Avonbelles. I got their contact details from their website and before I knew it I was on my way to Fishponds in Bristol for their Thursday evening rehearsal 7.30-10.00 in the Argyle Morley Church.
