I was completely intrigued by this idea. Using the human brain to complete a finished but 'not finished' art piece is in genius. The connection I had with her aspect of artwork and the one I did is a very loose connection but one can still gather how I got from one idea to another. Since I'm very interested in how the human brain works and why it ticks the way it ticks for certain people, I decided to narrow my artwork on disorders more specifically chemical imbalances that occur in the brain that result into a disorder. Once I thought of a few disorders, I narrowed it down to one; Insomnia. Insomnia is trouble falling asleep or staying asleep through the night. Episodes may come and go [episodic] last up to three weeks [considered short term] or be long-lasting [chronic].
The idea of this drawing is to make insomnia more visual. As you can see the girl has a certain type of plug whilst her pillow has a different type and this symbolizes the fact that she cannot "recharge" so she's gripping the bed sheets in distress. The process of my artwork drawing wasn't that bad. I had trouble figuring out the colors of the drawing and how the message would come across, as well as trying to show that her body is sleep deprived.With the message I did a good job executing that part, I could have done better if I was more focused on this project with showing that she suffers physically from insomnia.
As for another piece on canvas it shows the concept of identity. It comes from the project of essential questions. My essential question was "Is knowing your identity important? Knowing your roots, does that create your identity?"
Big question for this unit; how did I improve? What did I learn? Opinions?
Well, I've already given my opinions through this whole post, but to sum it all up, long and fun, challenged me in thinking outside of the box, and the outcome of thinking outside the box lead to success in the projects.
1. Using a black pen to draw with.[I normally go straight for the pencil, but pen was a different media, even though it was similar with the pencil.]
2. Proportions; with the silhouette of the "jane doe".
3. Adding texture; in the insomnia piece
4. Turned projects in on time therefore managing my time was more efficient this time around.
