Beauty and Culture
The Art Three class now follows a four phase process; Initiation, Design, Production and Presentation. The initiation phase begins with a topic and a theme. This project's topic was based on a principle and the project's principle was Text as an Element. We also provide a theme as a prompt to help generate ideas. Our first theme was "Culture". The medium was left open.
Petri dishes filled with recent newspaper article clippings and other cultural symbols
Much of this image is created using written text
Strips of paper with written expressions of culture wrap the hand
Three pieces of plexiglass with written forms of transportation set at different heights and depths
A family tree: the words read grandfather, mother, sister, etc. However, none can be read without rotating around the tree, new words form instead.
Photo transfer of images of Apex culture and different perspectives
Our next project will be based on the principle Intertextuality, where this piece will also work :)
