Senior year 2nd semester at CCAD equals the beginning of the senior AD Graph Thesis project. One that I am looking forward to I might add. Why? Because we get to do just about anything we want! And as an ad graph major hoping to break into the art education world, it gives me a chance to round out my portfolio in way other than pure digital computer advertising/graphic design.
So, concepts... Last semester I was shown to an amazing artist, Barbara Kruger, and I love her work and want to do something similar to what she does. If you don't know her look her up or continue to read my blog posts I'm sure you'll figure it out. Anyway, She does a lot of feminism stuff, I'm not into that, but I do like the MAKE people look idea. So, for my thesis topics I want to do something that people don't think about. 3 ideas: the clearing of timber on farms just to have an extra couple acres of farmland, relationships and how much negative pressure they can cause people at every age, modern life and how we don't appreciate the little things anymore.
Obviously, being that this is just the starting point I haven't done a lot of research, but I have started researching Barbara and people like her for ideas and motivation. Next week I need to finalize a topic and start gathering information. The more I know the less people who are against my views will be able to poke holes into my project. This is a whole new thing for me and I'm excited so let it begin.
