Merry Christmas fellow readers 🙂
Enjoy this picture of an ornament I made when I was in grade one, over 14 years ago
This semester has been… CRAY CRAY!!!
New projects weekly, new learning experiences, new experiments, and definitely new finished pieces! I now have a new piece that I especially like: my scorpion.
Here was the brief I received in my Communication: Surface, Object, Space class:
PROJECT 2: SERIAL PLANES
in this project, we will apply serial plane concepts and the principles of design to the creation of a foam core board 3D form using additive and subtractive methods.
Upon successful completion of the project, students will have the knowledge and ability to:
Create a three-dimensional abstract or representational form that is a minimum of 12″x12″x12″ using white or black foam core board.
This form can be free standing, hanging or mounted on a base (the design of the base should enhance the created form).
Incorporate repetition and gradation of size and/or shape.
Ideally, you will include in some area of your design an opening to reveal the interior space construction, and in this way, explore the positive and negative space possibilities within your design.
Note that the edges of the foam core will create lines, the layering of the planes will create a volume with positive and negative space, and natural and artificial light will create gradation and shadows. Use these factors to your advantage.
SO WHAT DID I MAKE?
I decided to create a scorpion, following the criteria above, and photograph it.
and there you go 🙂
In my Communication: Time, Motion, Media class, the first assignment was to create a zoetrope. A zoetrope is a device that produces the illusion of motion through a rapid spinning of static pictures. It consists of a cylinder with cut, vertical slits on the sides, with a band of images in the inner surface. As device spins, the viewer looks through the slits at the pictures.
Here is my Photographic Documentation of my zoetrope:
And finally here is the Video Documentation of my Zoetrope and the animation:
And that is my zoetrope 😀
Last summer, I made a blog post about my Black Swan alter ego drawing I completed for my Grade 12 Art class. Now, after much thought and watching of tv, I have discovered in myself another alter ego…
Jess from the show New Girl
With her bubbly, off-beat personality (as well as her outfits), I can see similar traits within myself.
With that being said, today I got my hair done and decided to get bangs! (Funnily enough, sort of the same as Jess’s…)
So, here is me being the New Girl!
And there you have it! Maybe I’ll discover more alter egos… I seem to be getting them mainly from watching tv… good excuse to turn on the tube if you ask me 🙂
If there is one pass time that I enjoy more than anything creative, it would be eating. I not only eat everything off my plate (or try to), but I have a very adventurous palette. While my sisters opt for a generic burger with fries, I might order the Grilled Calamari or Octopus Tentacles or even Swordfish (although I still enjoy the generic burger with fries combo like any other individual). However, as well as enjoying to eat food, I do enjoy looking at food.
So, as you may have guessed already, this post is about Food Photography. Now, the picture above with me about to devour a cupcake is NOT part of this DIY, (although taking pictures of people about to shove food into their faces, really is hilarious!). Anyways, here are a couple tips when it comes to taking beautiful photographs of food.
So there you have it!
Now, I’m going out and making my book of really beautiful food! AND I will put them up here as I go along, but for now, here is what my cover looks like so far 🙂
