When I thought about google and the future, I wanted to embody what I thought the world would look like 30 years from now. I imagined hovering wheelchairs, extreme global warming, smart houses, more genetically modified foods, and extreme weather conditions such as: tornadoes, hurricanes, and earthquakes. I initially had trouble with putting my thoughts on paper, because I am a beginning artist. For the “G”, I wanted to draw the hovering chair, and the “O’s” I imagined a world on fire in a recycling sign that was starting to be engulfed by the fire. The “G” would be the smart house. The “L” would embody the tornado, and the “E” would be a GMO burger. I feel like this perfectly represents my vision for the future.
What do you think the world will be like in our future?
I was super excited to have the opportunity to create 3D art because it gave me the chance to make art for my dorm room. I chose to do dorm DIYs on canvas boards. My inspiration came from YouTube. The videos taught me everything I need to know to create something cool for my dorm.
I collaborated with others. With the help of 3 friends and Mrs. Schumann, I was able to make an art piece that is amazing. I love hearing feedback about my work and being able to work with people who put in the effort to be helpful.
I took risks creating the project. I definitely took my time when it came to the fine details. I wanted to be careful with this canvas so that it would turn into a masterpiece for my dorm.
In the beginning, I had the holidays on my mind. I have never truly enjoyed nature but I do love christmas wreaths. I love christmas colors as well. I was inspired by the trees outside to make a wreath. My goals was to make it look as close to the one my mom hangs up every year on the door.
While trying to achieve my goal, I remembered how much I do not like nature. Leaves were poking me and dust was everywhere. I loved grabbing the berries off the tree and adding a pop of color to my art piece. It surprised me how much simple things back a difference.
End the end, I created a piece I was proud of. I loved how it turned out. It was simple but reminded me of my childhood and I loved it. Unfortunately the wind ruined it to where I couldn't take a nice picture of the end result but I loved it no matter what.
My earth art was not there when I returned a month later. I believe this is the case because of the winf and people walking over it. I wish it would have lasted because it is getting closer to Christmas time and It was a Christmas wreaths.
I developed art making skills. With this being my first time taking art since 7th grade, there are a lot of skills that I have either never been taught or never done before. Styrogami was definitely a new skill for me. I started this unit not knowing exactly what I wanted to create. This was solely based on me not knowing how to create art just from styrofoam. After I got over this, I just starting gluing different pieces of styrofoam together. Once I had three pieces put together, I saw mickey ears and knew exactly what I wanted to make. At this time, I was able to put together a sketch.
I took risk. I always believe I take risks when it comes to creating these projects. I am a beginner with big dreams so I must take risks to get my work done. I imagined having a mickey that could move his arms, had a crown, and was wearing his signature red overalls. I have only worked with styrofoam when it came to packing. Never have I looked at the materials provided and had to sculpt them. Every piece I put together was a risk due to me not knowing fully the direction or form I wanted my end product to be.
I created original art. In the end, Mickey turned out to be totally different form what I expected. He was crowned with gold, had long arms, and hollow eye balls. I ended up loving my project and thought of it as an abstract version of Mickey mouse. I was extremely happy I was able to bring a piece of my childhood into my artwork.
