This is my map for my walk. I decided to walk straight from my dormitory, and wondered where I would end up at. I started to walk with my music on, and I ended up at Chelsea when I walked straight
I took pictures focusing on things I couldn’t see in my neighborhood and places that were colorful. But since the photos had to be black and white, I couldn’t show the colors of the pictures I took.
composition – one of the most important elements of photography
– more important than how out of focus the background is

We both told our own stories of shift, and made collages out of them. I made my partner’s collage by expressing shift of this major; he changed his major from business to fashion. He made my collage using my story of my shift of places to places. We put our collages together, and we connected the two of them with words that contain New York. We both ended up in New York even though we made collages about different shifts.
I took two photos of my portrait ; one vertical and another horizontal, because my objects were all really short. To give a short explanation of my objects, all of the objects in this photo are presents from my family; perfumes from my mom, phone case from my brother, and last but not least sneakers from my dad. I selected these objects because first of all, I put on perfume everyday. Since all three perfume have different scent, I chose one that fits the most to my feeling each day since I was in Korea. Second of all, I chose my phone case because my younger brother gave it to me right before I came to New York. I told my brother I wanted this phone case, but I didn’t really think that he would actually buy it for me. So ever since, I’ve put on this phone case most of the time. Lastly, I chose this sneakers because I got it on Children’s Day in Korea when I just became an adult in Korea. So because my parents told me that they would buy presents for me on Children’s Day until I get married, I thought that this sneaker had a lot of meaning to me since it was the first one.
My favorite quote :
Just because you wander in the desert, it does not mean there is a promised land.
Before drawing 30 drawings, I thought that it won’t be difficult. I thought it would be very easy-going, but it turned out not to be. At first the drawings were easy, but as it got to the end, my arms started to hurt and it didn’t seem to end. After takings photos and making animations by photoshop, I was really amazed by how simple it is to make animations. This was almost the first time I used photoshop, so it was confusing and I was lost from time to time, but also it was more simple than I had thought about photoshop.
The verb that I have chosen for my homework was ‘grow’. The first thought that came into my head when I thought of growing were plants. So I drew a flower for drawing, made plants growing, and took a video of growing taller.
