In the North Carolina Art Museum, the art piece I am inspired by is the Rabble. Due to its unique craftsmanship and design I wanted to make an artwork that could compare to the masterpiece. I am inspired by this piece of artwork from the Museum's collection because of its distinct large structure and the medium that is used which is paper origami butterflies. Instead of paper origami butterflies I wanted to make a commemoration to the 9/11 memorial by building two wooden towers like the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City. After the two wooden towers were nailed and glued to the base I painted the wood white as a form of purity, innocence, perfection, and to represent the goodness in the world. I then decided to go along with the design of the Rabble by making paper origami airplanes like the two planes that crashed into the Twin Towers as a massive form of terrorism. When it was all finished I observed the artwork and wanted to commemorate an old tattered American flag into the piece, so I added it as a recollection of American spirit to the artwork. #NeverForget
1. We didn't write down a physical documentation of our plan, but it engulfed using red watered down paint and shredded yellow and white paper. After all of the paper was shredded we were going to spread all of the materials onto our artsy pizza to make it look like actual pizza.
2. Our overall symbol/purpose of the project was to show how pizza can represent someone's endurance and perseverance, and how it can be destroyed in a matter of seconds.
1. For our group's finishing touches we decided to put all of our pizzas together into a 28" pizza box and call it the "Artsy Pizza!"
2. (We Collaborate Questions) During the project process I did ask my group members for feedback to see if my part of the pizza would look better with more design on it, and they remarked by saying I should add yarn to the project. Also, someone did help me to understand important information by telling me the dimensions of what the piece of pizza should be and saying that you can put anything you want on the pizza.
1. As a group, we are coming up with a large pizza that will be created using art materials and on each piece of pizza a person in the group will come up with their own design using whatever materials they want to use. So...my part of the pizza was to create one slice and I decided to do splatter paint with neon colors because, come on, who doesn't like splatter paint. I also decided to use yarn to make a replica of North Carolina and put a star in the middle to represent the peak of good living aka Apex.
1. I felt like I learned a lot of new art processes while sketching my project. There are always new techniques to learn while making and designing art and one of the techniques I learned to enrich my project was learning while sketching. Learning how to add values to my sketching artwork helped to add a scheme of realism to the overall approach of my final project.
2. I felt like I did increase my skill on the familiar materials I used because instead of just sketching the outline of a person, I learned to draw the shadows and values to a person, which added an effect of realism and life to Derek Jeter.
