Students will work in pairs. Each student will pick one of their partner’s alien/creature/monster drawings. Then, the student will create a collection of five objects that signal that creature’s move from planet “Home” to New York City. What might the creature bring with them to remind them of their planet? What may the create need to survive in New York City?
project description: Capture moments of things you do throughout your day.
I chose to capture the act of stretching, first I drew some figures to get an idea of what kind of positions I wanted to do. Then I took pictures in these positions and edited them with the same filter to give a sense that it was all in the same day. I mounted them on different color paper to show my day moving on from in the beginning where my back feels fine to the end of the day where my back is stiff and tired. Finally for the ‘cut up’ technique I cut each picture into long strips and arranged them so every other one was from the same picture. Each picture frame was at different lengths because I wanted to mimic the wood flooring in the background.
Draw 30 iterations of an alien/monster/creature from planet “Home.” Use the memories and experiences you generated in the X-page Exercised and the Drawing Jam Exercises to imagine the qualities of this planet. Those qualities will inform the aliens/monsters/creatures you create that would inhabit that world.
