The Museum I visited was the Museum of The City of New York. The exhibition I browsed was “The Voice of the Village”. This exhibition was a limited exhibition in the museum and If I am not mistaken, I believe it ran up to December 1st or the 2nd. This photograph reminded me of the Obvious and Ambiguous project.
This art piece was created by Poramit Thantapalit and is on display at the Arcadia Earth NYC. This entire art piece is created by recycled product and so is everything else from this museum. This art piece is ambiguous. The relationship between the background and foreground is about 50/50. In this art piece the background compliments the foreground. The background is an underwater ocean team and the recycled product comes together to make a jellyfish. I like how the object is still but with the ocean background it gives off an illusion of motion. The artist used multiple colors like white,yellow and red . Normally artist doesn’t tend to mix the color yellow and red together but i think this artist use the color yellow to symbolize the jellyfish and red to symbolize his love for a clean ocean.
My first piece depicts a figure who has been burned on the ground. Ashes and smoke are surrounding them. The figure is composed of the word “burn”. I got the idea by looking at a tiny brown part of the ground that looked likes it’s been burned.
My second image is shows figures attempting to escape from a manhole and a symbolized blood around them. The the blood and figures are composed of the word “help”. I was inspired by looking at manholes and wondering what’s under them
My third image shows a rope tying itself around a pole. There’s a bit of a western theme as well. This is a pole near my house that I used to play on as a kid so it was on my mind and inspired this drawing
Overall I think this project came out well but my text could’ve read better.
This art is a gif. I was featured on a tiny screen near an elevator)
Dain Fagerholm incorporates an array of different design elements into “Gem Creature GIF”. It was featured in the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens. The piece consists of scribbly lines in which some are colored while others are black to give the image some sort of a texture. Although the lines aren’t the creature in the piece is composed of very round shapes with the item he’s holding being in a diamond shape with mini diamonds inside of it. There is negative space shown in the sky where the creature is displaying his object to make it a readable image. The size of creature seems to give off the connotation that the creature appears very big in size with the land he’s on. While some parts of the image contrast to make individual objects stand out on their own, it’s able to work itself into an image.
This piece is very similar to the texture and pattern project. Both my project and the museum piece share a similar type of motion in the visuals. They both have a sense of rhythm even if when being viewed as static images.
