Optical Illusion

18 Mar

For this assignment we needed to share a picture of an optical illusion.  This Is a picture of an optical illusion i created using red tape in this hallway.  My idea was to create a red slit down the hallway that was one continuous line.  Red is just a good color to exaggerate against the green walls which could mess with your eyes.  Also there is a saying in the sculpture world that I was thinking about when I made it.  The saying is something along the lines of, if you think something is not interesting enough make it bigger, red and multiples of it. 

Album Art

So I definitely enjoy this type of assignment.  This is the folk black metal band Krasnołąka, they hail from Poland and get their name from the their home town.  This is their 15th album release and they have really been rolling with the times the past 27 years.  They have moved through many genres of music including,  disco, country and Tuvan throat singing.  They were pretty bad at all that so they ended up getting thrown into the folk black metal genre.  they have toured extensively in Poland and Japan.  I personally designed this last album cover using imagery of a man on fire from Flickr.and I was told that they got the title from a Oprah Winfry Quote.

You can take from every experience what it has to offer you. And you cannot be defeated if you just keep taking one breath followed by another.

They really like Oprah and her plan to dominate the world.  I simply used Photoshop to mesh together a stellar album cover conveying the bands love for rainbows and violence.  All in all a success.

Words with no English Translation

retrouvaillesSo with this assignment Make The Untranslatable Understood you are asked to choose a word from this random word generator provided and apply it to an Image that gives the word meaning and a better understanding through the visual.  I came to the word Retrouvailles meaning “The happiness of meeting again after a long time.”  I knew I had some pictures that would fit this description.  Do I decided to use this picture of me and three of my very good friends who haven’t seen each other in a long time.  We all ended up taking different roads in life so far so it had been a long time since we last met.  The process for making this was fairly simple.  I just opened my image in Photoshop and used the basic text tool to add my word.  I chose to use a muted color from the picture using the   tool so the word would not stand out as much and let the picture speak for itself.
