This conceptual project was created to exhibit each piece of work from my conceptual unit. In english we wrote poetry based on specific statements and art from the San Francisco MOMA. We also created an essay that described a passion of ours. In design we took our poetry and photographed an object that created a metaphor for our message. In Digital media we experimented with pro tools to create music and put our other projects into digital form, by recording them and organizing them on this webpage.
This conceptual project allowed me to get out of my comfort zone and create a website as well as experiment with forms of media I’m not used to. I learned about the principles graphic design, the technicalities of web design, the abstractness of poetry, the broadness of passions, and the metaphors of photography. I also began to learn how to use programs like Pro tools, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and Adobe Animate as well as using a MIDI board and a DSLR camera. I think that using all of these different tools is important because although they might not interest me a ton, it is valuable to have the knowledge to create in many different aspects of art and in all walks of life.
The point of writing our Expository Essays was to express something we were passionate about and explain it using a variety of techniques. My essay was about Sciences, I wanted to discuss how even if you aren’t passionate about them, they are essential to nearly every aspect of the lives we all are living.
