Final Project

Eadweard Muybridge

Create a visual artwork that uses aspects of sequence.

What the heck do we mean by sequence?
“juxtaposed pictorial and other images in deliberate
sequence, intended to convey information and/or produce an aesthetic response.”

Here are some aspects of sequence that you can think about:
Thinking about Time
The potential for transformation is a key component of sequence, narrative, story-telling...transformation requires a sequence of events, and the passage of some increment of time (could be years, days, seconds, or the blink of an eye.)

Scott McCloud - Understanding Comics

How can you use the tools you have like a powerpoint?
Or maybe you continue to think about mapping to create a system or set of rules / chance factors for yourself to generate sequence/s?
(What a Twist~)
Stop Motion

(Transitions / Settings / Continuity / Mapping)

Thinking about Transformation

Thinking About Perception

You can use clarity or deliberately discard it.

Tying it all together
So, we're thinking about aesthetics and how they generate narratives...I encourage you to reflect on the skills you've learned and used throughout this class. 
- Visual Communication, Conciseness (Pun)
-  Observation, Documentation, Investigation (Mapping)
- Reality-based Details and Specifics (Confession)

For a moment ask yourself,
How does your art and your life connect?
