Due June 27 before 430p. Post to blog > x Portfolio page
Create a series of landscape, letter (11×8.5″) pages – 2-3 pages per project, 1″ border, documenting preliminary and final designs for each project. Save as a PDF and name as name.portfolio.pdf.
Structure each page in an interesting manner (like using a grid, below) to make a cohesive 10-15 page record of your work. No words necessary.
Short talk by writer Kurt Vonnegut on the Shape of Stories
In this project you’ll create a visual narrative, considering context, time, space, movement, picture relationships, linearity/non-linearity. Produce a narrative that addresses one or more of these approaches:
– a documentary approach creating a photo essay about an issue
– creation of a constructed reality using a fictitious identity, history or reality
– a poetic or lyrical approach to memory and/or identity
• Use a minimum of 7 photographs–shot, appropriated, staged for the camera, manipulated (Photoshop, etc.)
• Source must be photographic
• Presentation medium is open: installation, movie, object (book, etc.)
• Take care in production of all aspects of the project
