The image assignment was interesting, even if it was impossible to stay awake. Sitting on the ground for that long is tiring at that hour. Where I placed my images, especially how I drew them had a very personal touch. I just drew a smiley face for light, that’s the way it made sense to me. Most of the positive feelings come from my heart, so I took it in that direction. However, some of the images were pretty nonsensical. I drew the river going down my side like a gash in Lime green (Mountain Dew?) A very loose interpretation of it is that it’s a representation of the scar I have on my left side, but that’s really pushing it. Other sides of how I view myself came out with the traditional symbols interpretation. The Sun and Moon placement was pretty much a reflection of how I see myself, and my house was also involved symbolically in their placement. Kinda scary.
The lighting assignment was interesting, in a more subtle way. I was lukewarm going into the assignments, but seeing the contrasts changed my mind. It was a lot better seeing and being able to mess around with the color changes. It gave me a pretty good idea for my Festival performance.
