Choose a topic that has societal or environmental significance. You should have great interest in this topic and be eager to research it throughout the semester. Present ten 5-inch square interpretations of your topic, each on an 8.5-inch square sheet. Use imagery, metaphor, and real statistical data to prove the quantitative as well as the emotional significance of your topic. In this assignment, explore approaches to information that you are not accustomed to. Information should be presented in relevant but unexpected situations and created out of unexpected materials. All imagery must be of your own creation. At the close of the project you will present an animated synopsis of your topic along with the ‘packaged’ squares.
I am very passionate about immigration because it has affected my family. I approached the subject by researching as much as I possibly could about the issue. Then I started to jot down statistics that seemed important to me. I then hit the sketchbook for a couple hours. Lastly, I showed the sketches to my professor and picked which images I would execute. The way each image was created varies vastly. I mostly mixed photography with vector.
The results were amazing even though sometimes I did not have an idea how I was executing the image. I merely scouted my house for supplies and put together what I could.
