Week One: Looking at Stuff

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Nicole brought in lots of really great imagery from punk posters that use appropriated and collaged text.  The group pulled imagery from magazines and did collages and tracings to play with composition and text.

We also looked at the Philadelphia Mural Art’s “Love Letters” mural series done with Espo as an example of the use of text and imagery, and using common language and wordplay to create emotionally strong and sincere statements.  We brainstormed ideas for text based on cliche, played out pick-up lines (Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?) and pressuring statements, like “If you love me, we don’t need to use a condom.”
