The poem “She being Brand” by e.e. cummings metaphor is sensual. To me the poem is talking about how a person can love so much is car to the point were the driver imagines having sexual thought with it. I think this because I had owned a car, I loved my car that i was so sad the day the engine die and at that point i had to junked. Also the poem makes me think how this person is describing the way he is touching a woman the way he would drive a standard car, relating every piece of the car to a parts of a person’s body.
The poem “Coming Home, Detroit, 1968” by Phillip Levine what a person goes through daily. The poet is describing what he sees or what his daily life is like. I think he is describing the problems that he sees but there is nothing he can’t do about it. I also thinking he is talking about the pollution in the city. The way everyone pollutes and contaminates the environment with their cars.
My idea for the shoot is having a nice shiny car with bright lighting and the other one a bit up car maybe with smoke in the background and dark lighting.
Certainly when we really love a thing sometimes we personify it. did you ever see the movie “Her”? In it a man falls in love with his phone. it is supposed to be a comedy but holds a weird grain of truth.
The ee cummings poem might be hard to capture with high key lighting. certainly the feeling should be exuberant and upbeat. I like the idea of smoke for the Levine poem. One of last semester’s most successful solutions used smoke.
