project 5 video

This is the final project for this class. I created this video in Windows Movie Maker from a howto youtube video and photoshop stills I made using a screen grab from the original video. The music is a portion of c.y.o.a. by heartsrevolution. super fun! I loved this class and learned a ton about the programs available for making art as well as formatting and the use of the internet as a tool. thank you for looking!

assignment 6 metaphors in art

a metaphor is the comparison of two dissimilar things in a way that one represents the other. in writing, its simply a comparison without using like or as:  “the world is a stage…” Just as writers do, artist use metaphors to make their work more interesting and thought provoking as well as heighten communication and immediacy.  birds are commonly  used to represent freedom and peace. these could be considered cliches, or  metaphors that are way overused.  Dali often used repeated images of crutches in his paintings which were his way of expressing the support for the inadequate as a part of life and death and based on Frued’s influence on Dali, probably had something to do with his mother…

project 1

poster2

 

For this project we were asked to create an 11 x 17 poster with a subversive message.  I took this photograph and the denver aquarium and really wanted to use it as my main image but stared at it for a week unable to see how to fulfill the assignment.  After playing around with photoshop for a bit and not getting anywhere, I started using Illustrator and found it was a little easier and more versatile for my ideas. I like the concept of a simple, contemporary design with one bright color offsetting black and white.  I used repetition of the image for visual interest and movement along with opacity adjustments and layering for depth.  The text is meant to evoke a mixed reaction in that float and purpose have been defined to be somewhat contrasting in meaning.  The message is tread lightly and buoyantly with some intent.  It can reflect humans in relation to the earth and our impact or  just for themselves as a sort of “encouragement” poster you might find hanging some conference room in Corporatetown, USA, but with a more zen-like approach.
