Assignment #4 – What’s outside isn’t necessarily what’s inside

Today we talked about collage and how the aggregation of disparate objects/images/people can begin to breed new understanding. Using the techniques of collage, I want you to make two drawings – one interior and one exterior. These two drawings should create a dichotomy of opposites – one should speak of calmness and serenity, and one should exude chaos and motion. The specific subject you choose to investigate – political, personal, emotional, etc. – is up to your discretion. I would like everyone to use the opposites of calmness and chaos so we can compare the two.

Think hard about the conceptual basis of your dichotomy – technique is secondary here, think about what you are trying to communicate and how best to do that.
