Video Project Link

Having my mental health at it’s worst lately, it has been hard trying to get my motivation and creativity going. Due to this, I stressed about how I was going to go about this video project. Then I realized I could utilize this, be open, and show the normalcy of it; the normalcy of being a college student who is unsure of themselves, their health, and their work quality. Depicted in the video is how it has been recently for me as a student, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who has this sort of routine.

Blue Exhibit Report

The exhibit this report revolves around is the “blue.” exhibit from the Nassau County Museum of Art. This exhibit encapsulates the raw emotions the primary color blue communicates within art. In the description, they state that every artist goes through a blue phase, which I found interesting. Not only can this mean artistically, but also personally; everyone feels a little blue, often or not. This goes to show just how much art can be used as an outlet for raw emotions, especially with the use of color.

Picasso’s “Buste de Femme” (1902)

This piece really resonates with the theme of this gallery in it’s entirety. This piece is a lithograph on Arches Paper. Stated by the narrator, Picasso uses cerulean blue in this piece, adding to the history of modernism. He was only 21 years of age when he made this 29 in. x 22 in. piece, shortly after his friend took his own life. This brings up the theme of sadness being connected to the color blue once again.

Roy Lichtenstein’s “By the Sea” (1965)

This is a silk screen on a plastic ground, and is 50.6 x 60.8 cm. In this piece, Roy Lichtenstein used Rowlux to create a mix of different shades and tones of blue. These blues create a rippling effect, becoming both the sea and sky, which looks beautiful. Looking at his previous work, Lichtenstein created many famous pop art pieces with the same dot technique used in the smaller portion of this one.

Han Qin’s “The Direction of Immigration” (2019)

This piece was another highly emotional one that caught my eye. Han Qin created this using a cyanotype scroll, being 3307 x 94.5 inches. Her inspiration behind this was her family’s story of immigration. The sight of seeing them disperse at the airport of JFK in search of a home was what gave her the idea for this piece. She used a dark blue for the background, while using a solution to fade the outline of the dance-posed figures, creating a cyan colored shadow around them.

Visual Quote Project

The quote I chose for this project was “My left is nothing but a comedy” from the 2019 Joker film. For the first design, I wanted to give the feeling of someone being by themselves; lonely. This would go well with the pessimistic view behind the quote I designed. For the second design, I wanted to give the word “nothing” more focus, and I attempted to do this by adding the jester hat onto it. I did this on the word “nothing” because that is how the person who is saying this quote would feel; like nothing, or like a fool. As for the final design, I wanted to give more focus on the illustration portion of it; emphasizing the theme of false happiness. By using the theatrical masks that are both smiling and crying, it communicates how this person may feel like nothing but a laughing stock, while being extremely pessimistic.
