For the still life with string Shyanne and I wanted to use objects in nature and place them with bottles and highly man made items. The use of the two types of objects exemplify how one effects the other and what sort of role natural and man made objects have in our society. I do wish that the animal hearts were also in focus though. My favorite part of this picture is the use of subtle color as well as the way the hanging objects connect to the objects in the table.
For this piece I was focusing on the death of celebrities, more specifically "Rock n roll" icons such as John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Ian Curtis, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, and Jim Morrison. I created this death character and placed that on top of various articles and photos in order to connect the deaths of these icons to the how we view them as a society. I wanted to highlight the actual death of each of these icons in a sort of memory/recognition of what happened to them.
So for my triangles I was focusing on the three different environments: Sky, Water, and Forest/land. I went a more abstract route with representing these environments and I ended up connecting the triangles in order to show how these environments effect and connect with one another. I actually really like how these turned out because it is a lot different from what I usually do the only thing I would fix is the black at the bottom of the clouds int he sky triangle. I think what makes this so successful is how well each environment flows to the next yet still maintaining the idea that they are separates that make a whole.
