The Museum Of Natural History was somewhere i was very much looking forward to going. Having visited the Natural History Museum in London i knew it would be good. In the London Museum the best parts were the Large animals exhibitions, in particular the sea world and the dinosaurs. I felt a little disheartened after viewing these in New York as they weren’t nearly as interesting.
I really enjoyed the Earth and Space section however and managed to get lots of inspiration from the rock and crystal forms.
Whilst in New York i went to MOMA as lots of people had told me it was really good. To be honest i was a little disappointed after having looked around as i didn’t really feel that there was much to see.
I like to look at other Artists and Designers but i felt there was not a lot of artwork that caught my eye.

I had a look in the MOMA shop after viewing the museum. These are some of the books that i fell in love with. They had lots of really interesting work and inspiring designers.
On the 22nd January i flew to New York for 5 days with my Family. I had thought a little bit already about my theme for this module, but i was still unsure on what it was going to be. I decided that the best thing for me would be to take lotf photographs and see as much as i could whilst i was there.
Being in New York one of my initial ideas was Architecture as there was so many amazing buildings. We visited the Empire State, the Rockerfeller center and my favourite the World trade center where we got to explore both inside and some of the amazing views from the top.
Clare suggested we watched this video by Beatrice Coron who talks about her paper cut designs. She uses scissors and paper to create very intricate silhouettes of architecture, landscapes and much more.
The image that stood out most for me was the cities she had created in particular New York as i was visiting there during my research week.
