dreaded cardboard!

this was one of those ideas that goes well at first but you aren't quite sure what to do next......
I feel that for the most part this one project has delt me a blow, as simple as it was, is as simple as it wasn't. I think i can live without cardboard designs in my life, and if i am forced to do one again any time soon i shall pick something i might be able to wrap my brain around once it gets down to the cutting.

Untill then, this one was my wolf's bane.

I found this project, although simple, to be the quickest and the funnest we have done so far, all of the photos i took were awesome i still have many more which i will post under neath the blog. The first photos were taken as i was walking home, i noticed that nature has a pattern it follows in the flow of things, and so do we, I took pictures of the surrounding trees that masked a building with a fenced in yard. the fence is old and the strips that were used to hide the contents that are protected had been worn down. The other three (?) were taken at my apartment complex, this was very easy to do considering that most apartments are made in a particular pattern, even the cars parked in a certain way that formed a small pattern. The A/c caught my eye coming down, it would have been nice to catch them in motion and put it on here, but anyway.. I ate lunch and noticed the floor was a perfect example of rythmic patterns and so i caught it, and Finally the one that i feel was the best pattern of all were these 4 college girls passing by with two covered in red buckets and two not, so i asked them to pose for me naturally,and they automatically got into this pose.

here are the rest of the pictures i took for wash.

perplexed and Absolute

I chose to go with these two words because the seemed like the most logical that i could pull off by myself, Perplexed, Me holding a Scott pilgrim vs the world graphic novel Up side down, i don't know if its noticeable just pointing that out. And 2nd the Absolute, this one didn't strike any chords that were more creative so i just went with a 2000 poster cover of Tech n9nes Absolute power album, the idea fit the word perfectly, those are my fingers in the picture btw..

when in rome

That is the remains of my paper structures,  I felt that the initial idea was perfect and didn't really want to change it but was told to add more so i did, both parts of the paper tower were meant to represent roman pillars, i figured since we were using a cinder brick that i would build a solid enough structure from the paper and it would hold, which it did as first, un till the official test and it caved in.
And there you have it.
