Sweet Like Cigarettes

Following up on my last bridge 2 assignment i was to create two more diptychs. comparing the harm of addiction to cigarettes and candy. how adults and children are prone to addiction because we are all human.

i created candy cigarettes and a candy package of cigarettes taking a label from a local candy shop i often see children in.

  • What conversation happened between each image in this diptych?

smoking whats inside the package

  • How was the medium selected successful at supporting the content of your object, form, or image? (if it was not as successful as others, why?)

looks like a cig and box

  • How did the materiality (medium used) affect the content or meaning of the individual artworks?

the material is candy so it represents to cigs as candy which is the whole point

  • What did you learn about your content through this medium exploration?

sugar is just as bad for you as a cig is

  • How did the medium you used change the context of your object, form, or image?

some students were confused why i chose to gild. i chose it to represent a candy wrapper

  • What websites / books / museums / galleries / other artists did you research during this process for ideas and inspiration?

Regarding the whole process:

  • How does this experiment shift your overall thesis question?

is candy  the young form of cig addiction. are humans prone to addiction.

 

second i chose to take a photo of a child in a candy store and an adult outfront of a cigar shop.

  • What conversation happened between each image in this diptych?

adult vs child store

  • How was the medium selected successful at supporting the content of your object, form, or image? (if it was not as successful as others, why?)

photography proved they are real places

  • How did the materiality (medium used) affect the content or meaning of the individual artworks?

it made the piece  real

  • What did you learn about your content through this medium exploration?

i wish i knew how to use a camera better but it proved its in real life. its not staged.

  • How did the medium you used change the context of your object, form, or image?

it did not feel like it changed the context but it made it less fantasy like.

  • What websites / books / museums / galleries / other artists did you research during this process for ideas and inspiration?
