Bellow you will find some of our favorite posts from the photo week.
Of the many beautiful and artistic visual creations this week, two in particular stood out to me. Francesca’s “It’s the circle of life,” and Jessica’s “A Computer Scientist’s Attempt at Art.” Both of these pieces are digitally made art that teater the line between realism and digital distance. Additionally, both of the pieces capture one’s eye because of the vibrance of their color, lurrying us to look deeper into the story of their creation.
While looking through the class’ creations I took a pause at this piece because of the simple yet avant garde disposition to the piece. In reading through Jessica’s reasoning for making the piece the way she did, you get the feeling that its aura of youth and light are intentionally felt. At one point Jessica declares, “… my childhood self would’ve enjoyed this creation,” and I think this is an accomplishment we should all strive towards when creating for the sake of creativity.
While Francesca’s piece is vibrant with sharp neon colors, I found her witt and narration to be an excellent addition to the artwork. On a first glance, I was struck by the symmetry of the different colored lines, all in odd shapes, yet all appearing to be exactly in place. This makes since once you read Francesca’s opening line, “Since I cannot do anything without thoroughly thinking it through, this picture does have meaning.” Funny and yet a satisfying line for an art critique examines every pixel for a sense of truth.
This represents a typical college students life with a backpack. Your backpack becomes your “go to bag”. Your backpack carries everything a successful student needs to survive college life on the go. I really enjoyed reading the comments for each item that is in the backpack.
I think I was drawn to this photo because I have a cat that tries to get in the fridge when we open the door. I can relate to this picture. It’s just a cat trying to keep cool on a hot summer day. Caption under the picture: “Malkav never gave up on his desire to live in the fridge, even after the time when he was a kitten that we didn’t see him in there, and he got shut in. Or when he really got too big to fit in there.”
