ASSIGNMENT 4/5

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:

 

REQUIREMENTS

* 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.

 

SCANNER ART:

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.

 

ALTERED REALITY, A

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.

 

ALTERED REALITY, B

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.

 

JOURNAL:   

1)     Sketch and/or describe your work.  Talk about any ideas behind it. 

2)     How is part I (Scanner Art) about YOU

3)     What is the altered reality in parts A and B

4)     In what image did you use Painter?

5)     Comment on how you feel about acquired imagery
