Newspaper Project

      This piece was different than any other piece that I have done. Starting with not knowing what the end piece was going to be. The strings represent the web in which we started the project with and connects different themes.

Reflection Sep. 27

Looking Back:
  • Using wax and layering objects was new to me
  • It was fun learning/trying new ways to layer objects and also bringing it some of the nature aspect into the art
Looking Forward:
  • I'm almost done with my project and I'm working on the "motion" of it; where the viewer's eyes go to first. Also how they move through the piece
  • I think I have a good grasp of the theme but it is still in the works
  • Working with wax also getting a lot of my ideas as the piece goes on

Reflection Sep. 20

Looking Back:

  • This week I got a lot done from finishing my newspaper project to getting an idea for the new project
  • I think I really accomplished something in the newspaper project and I'm liking how it turned out
Looking Forward:
  • For the translucency project I'm thinking of doing the past, present, and future for my main topic "Evolution". Plus nature
  • So far I have just cut out some extinct plants and animals and asked my stepdad to cut a piece of plywood for the project
  • I've never worked with newspaper so it was interesting working with new materials
  • Also I liked the process of not knowing what was next and I think it made things a bit less stressful
