SX: Formal explorations

After going through Joseph and I's original idea of shadow and light, and the attractive-ness of light is to people, we came upon the idea of "community" So our monument turned into a monument dedicated to the idea of bringing unexpected people together. So, a monument to Community. Above are some ideas for our final monument formal qualities. Joseph will post his sketches to his blog, here.

The idea of our monument is to show the of community through light. So on our small elevated hill the light would react to the visitor, then another visitor, then another...hopefully the idea would then show that the more we get together, the brighter things will be.

My personal favorite is the last idea, it's just the sleekest, and simple...Doesn't take away from the idea. It gets the meaning across. The idea of light, and then also protection for the wind, or other weather obstacles.

DP: Day 1

This is going to be a lot more challenging for me than I thought it would. I mean, I knew it would be challenging, but when I started to try and to design something today it just seemed like I put so much pressure on myself. And that's not what this exercise is about. So, I went with my one of my first ideas on this run...Holden Caulfield refers to almost everything as "phony". Girls are phony, boys are phony, "it's" phony. He has a lot of animosity towards the people he's around everyday.

Within this poster I wanted to keep it simple. I'm sure it has something to do with it being my first one, and me not wanting to over-work it, or just do something to far, where it wouldn't even relate back to the book. The reason I chose to juxtapose the word "phony" and blonde hair is because, a lot of the girls I know with blonde hair dye it that way; it aint real people. I think this also gets at the idea of what traditional beauty is to people, but in reality what we think is beautiful is fake, or should I say, "phony."
