Faculty: Susan Stillman

Prompt: We were to create two variations of mixed media compositions based on building block constructs. The assignment was to be digital combinations of original photos, drawings, random marks or textures, and photographic cityscape elements.

My intention for this project was to push my creative boundaries in sculpting a world out of building blocks. I wanted my viewers to get lost in my imaginary world that I’ve created. Through this project, I was able to learn different skills through photoshop and create depth in my pieces digitally. The two different works I composed allowed me to explore my artistic style and how I was able to bring different moods with different techniques. The purpose of these pieces is to evoke emotion and questions about the cityscapes before them. What does your imaginary city look like?
