Throughout the semester, the projects that I have done were interesting and challenging. The first project we did was the Urban Artifacts, I did not get the idea of taking pictures of objects on the street and make it into art, however we did. Throughout each phase, I learned how to create an obvious and ambiguous figure ground relationship and using Photoshop to make a stable and unstable figure ground. What I would do differently, have different objects and recreate the ambiguous composition and make it more chaotic.
The second project was Sound Visualization, I learned how to create a video, animating, and adding sound in Photoshop, it was pretty difficult because it was my first time and I did not know what part of the song I wanted in the video. During this project, I would retry doing the animation again, I feel like it could have been better, and getting each part of the layer in the right place.
In the current project we are working on, Value-Added Portraits, what I learn is making a collage of a portrait in a high key and low key composition. I thought it was really interesting making a collage that was narrow because my photo did not appear anything like my portrait and i had a different perspective. What I would recreate again is my painting, Currently, it is challenging me, because it is hard for me getting the right colors to match the original Broad Range collage.
