ART 321

6 Images, Due Tuesday, February 25th


6 IMAGES    

This assignment has 3 parts.  Use Painter, Photoshop, or a combination along with photo manipulation and digital painting techniques to make six images that adhere to the following parts:



* You must at least in part use Painter for one image

Part I     Scanner Art (two images)

Part II    Altered Reality A (two images using any acquired imagery)

Part III   Altered Reality B (two images using digital camera and other sources)


This is a 2 1/2 week assignment, so aim to make 3 images a week.



Your task:

Use the film or flatbed scanner to experiment with texture, color, light, and motion.  The work must talk about YOU in some way.



Consider how imagery is or is not the truth.  Think about looking at a picture and believing that it is one thing when it is really something else.  This happens often in science when you look at a micro image of some kind of bacteria or other substance or when you look at a macro image of something like a map of a city.  You can also consider how an image can appear to be one thing when it was in fact something else.


Your task:  To alter the reality of two acquired images.  Use the web, books, or film scans from pictures you have taken.



Same as "A," but this time you must use a digital camera.  You may use any other source as well.


Call on your group members for content and technical help.
