This blog depicts the steps that I am taking to create the many projects in Art 225. It will show pictures, descriptions and explanations on my creative process through this term.
This is one of my ideas and it incorporates the idea of the light coming on after my my accident. The first panel is a light turned off and it represents the unknowing of before the accident. I am not sure about the image I choose but i enjoy the message I am trying to portray through these cubes. The second is the a light bulb that is shattered to represent the chaos of the actual accident. The last cube is representing the light that turned of in my mind after the accident. I realized that I needed to take responsibility for my actions. I am currently working on a extension of this and also a few other sketches that I will bring on monday. For this idea I am going to work with the placement and adding type and I am also thinking about somehow making it go across the back side that just has the simple words on it right now. Let me know what you think. Thank you!
This was an idea for my cube of unknowing. I wanted to make it seem as if you were looking inside the cup from the top and looking at the bottom from the bottom of the cube. This ended up not being as successful as it was in my head.
This is the bottom cube is composed of the negative space made from the shattered glass and is placed in a similar place as the photo of the shattered glass. The quoted is from socrates and I believe really depicts what I learned from this accident.
This is the top cube an is a linear pattern of the shattered class. This pattern reminded me of the confusion that was happening when the accident was occuring.
For my cubes that were brought into class they were stacked upwards and this was the middle cube. This was my original cube and I added my word along with the use of line representing the center divider of a road.
This is the third cube in my first revising session and it is one of the patterns that I used in my part a project. This pattered reminded me of chaos and the craziness of the actual accident.
This was my second cube witch was a pattern of shattered glass that raps around the whole box. For my first round of boxes I felt like this was the most visually appealing. I worked the rest of my project from this box and had the idea to work the glass from a full glass to a slightly shattered glass to this box.
This cube was one of the first cubes I made and it was to represent the crazy and reckless times before the accident. This cube did go go with my other two and was to light in color and content.
My three emotions that I wanted to portray for my cubes were unknown, chaos and shattered. These three words relate to the moment of the crash instead of the before, during and after the crash. The unknowing is when I started to hydroplane and not sure what was going to happen next. The next cube is chaos and represents the craziness of the accident its self. Finally shattered represents the moment of hitting the tree and how the glass shattered all over the place. It also represents how my childhood and recklessness was shattered away and I learned that I needed to grow up. I went with the shattered glass because it really portrayed my message the best. The unknown cube had a full class with it starting to shatter. Chaos had the glass starting with bigger cracks and going to shattered glass. The final cube is the pattern of shattered glass surrounding the box.
