The purpose of the Conceptual Project was to have us attempt to express ourselves in ways we were either unfamiliar with or had never experimented with before. Each of our classes contributed to this in each respective way, with english focusing on poetry, design focusing on creating photos with metaphorical meaning, and digital media focusing mostly on audio and music composition.
In each section you will find an assignment that we completed in each of our classes, most of them building upon each other and transitioning between classes. Artistically I have improved creatively through my newfound understanding of how metaphors can strengthen more than just writing, and can be applied to any other type of art as well in order to increase the depth. I enjoyed the freedom that was present within this Conceptual Project, I feel like we all got to accurately express ourselves in each assignment due to the great amount of freedom we had while creating each one.
My Expository Essay is written on my passion for music and its different parts, like the analytical/composition side of music, as well as the power it has to move the listener and convey great amounts of emotion. The point of the essay was to really show the different parts of music and that however contrasted they may be, the product is amazing and is a form of medium that is unlike any other. I was inspired to write this essay through my previous experience with playing the saxophone and guitar and a band called the “Pat Metheny Group,” which rarely uses words but is still able to consistently move me and communicate purely by the emotion they display through their use of their instruments.
