1/16/18 PROJECT 1
Proposal 1: Desire to travel
Like many people, I’ve always had the desire to travel. I have never been out of the country and I really love experiencing new things. The main reason I desire to travel, for me, is to learn. I want to learn about more cultures, meet new people, experience different food and bring back many memories. I feel like if I traveled more, I would learn more about myself. I want to learn about who I am from the experience of opening my eyes to the world that is outside of my home.
I feel like this would be fun to create for my project. My first image is a human hybrid thats “flying” around a globe, looking for new places to “explore”. My second image is of a person “throwing” pins across a map. so she can jump on them. This is to make it look like she’s “hopping” from one place to another.
Proposal 2: Desire for beauty (aka make-up products)
I’ve always had an uncontrollable desire to buy new make-up products, even when I don’t need them. I love practicing make-up and crafting new looks. However, this puts a huge dent in my bank account. One of the eyeshadow palettes I have cost almost 50 dollars, and I own 8 pallets. You could say that make-up “controls” my earnings, which I should be spending on utilities for my dorm.
This is my top pick for my project. In the image, there are make-up products that are “burning” money and stabbing it with make-up wands (the blush represents the fire pit). The fire was going to be made of foundation, lipstick, primer, etc.
Proposal 3: Desire for knowledge
My last idea is my desire for knowledge. Like I said in my first proposal, I love learning and experiencing new things. The facts and skills I learn, the more confident in myself I become. I feel like the more I absorb the wiser I become, thus building my self-esteem.
Although I feel this proposal would be hard for me to execute, I do like the concept. The image is showing a face with its eyes and mouth cut out. It wouldn't just say “words”, it would be words from a dictionary scanned in.
