The purpose of the Conceptual Project was to develop my abstract thinking skills in order to see how I could use unconventional forms to express myself. In order to achieve this goal, we wrote four pieces of poetry in English class, composed, shot, and edited a photo in Design class, and made a music piece in Digital Media.
On this website, you can see the various art pieces I made in each of my classes, along with commentary on how I made each piece and what I got out of making each one. Overall, I learned a lot about how to use various equipment and programs, such as my camera, Photoshop, and Pro Tools 12. I also learned how to use color, placement, and metaphors in order to get my message across to viewers. Overall, I enjoyed making each piece and being able to express how I felt.
In addition to making the various art pieces, I also wrote an Expository Essay about a passion either I had or I had observed in other people. I chose to write one about logic puzzles and why they were appealing to various people, since the Rubik’s Cube in particular helped me get through some rough spots in my life, and I want to be able to explain why a puzzle that doesn’t seem remotely fun to many of peers is fun to me and many others.
