In a Box
This project is where you are given a box and a theme and create something related to the theme. Using my understanding of the theme “Fantasy” that I was given, I started and ended up completely different ideas. My first thoughts were great but not feasible after a few changed, I had my final plan. While working on my project, my final plan changed completely and it looks nothing like what I started with.
My final plan
Through this project, I had a lot of problems. The final plan was not very feasible, so I changed it, but the composition looked weird and it didn’t fit my theme of fantasy. I overcame the problem by thinking and trying different things again and again until it worked. After this project, I learned the importance of asking for feedback and composition. Different places you place the objects can have different meanings.
Artist’s habit of mind
During creating the final box, I developed crafts with different materials, airdried clay, acrylic paint, I used cotton for mist, I used a paper mask as a base for the person’s face. I also took a wine bottle and ripped the label off and made a new one in photoshop. For the last touch, I inserted led lights (christmas light) into the cotton. When I was trying different medias, I envisioned how it would turn out and eliminated some ideas that didn’t fit with my theme. In this project, I expressed what I wanted to show others in my box, which is “If you just open your eyes and look for it, it will be there.”
