Prompt: This project requires students to use Illustrator and another material to create repetitive patterns that are used to complete a self-portrait. The topic is past/present/future, which means that the portrait students create should show the contrast between two time periods.
This project is composed of two parts. The right one is completed with geometric gures, such as triangles, squares, circles, lines, and so on. I am intended to create a three-dimensional gure by lling them out and controlling the density of the arrangement. The photo I choose is a pro le which contrasts with the other half which is a front photo of my childhood. I painted the other half by using ink and ngerprints. When I recalled what kind of elements can represent a person’s childhood, I thought I was required to imprint my ngerprints on the birth certi cate. Therefore, I decided to use my ngerprints to complete this half which can also represent my identity.
