Social Issue Project

Explain what the meaning and purpose is behind the work that you have created. Describe how you used particular formal properties (1 element, 1 principle, composition), media and visual symbolism to convey an idea visually?

It is meant to represnt the issue of misinformation. I used shape to create the image of newpapers and a pencil. I used to color to make some objects pop and increase visual variety.

What were some of my most powerful learning moments and what made them so?

I learned to work with pen as a drawing material. This was fun because it was a new experienceand interesting to do. It had restructions like not being able to make fully filled in shapes, but it made things pop and look unique.

How will I use what I've learned in the future? (in art or elsewhere)

I will potentially use pen later and add social issues to future projects.

Talk about your inspiration for this work of art. Where did it come from and how is it reflected in the final piece?

I was inspired by the huge amount of misinformation in the modern world. It was reflected in the fianl piece by outright lies and contradictions.

What were some of the most challenging moments and what made them so?

Picking a social issue was difficult. It was also hard to integrate it into the final art while still making a nice piece of art.

How was your thinking and creativity valued throughout this unit and project?

It was a very independent project. You picked the materials and project. Everyone has a different issue, and a different way to execute it. By definition this requires a lot of creativoty.
