It’s pretty relatable to many of us. The lack of personal space and people making body contact with you is just gross.
2) Me + At a party = Dying
I’m not a party person….
3) Me + at dance practice = peer pressured to talk native
I speak English a lot, even among Malays. And back then that resulted me in Malay peers and even instructors telling me off for not speaking native. From the apparent “slang” I talked, the way I laughed, the words I used and basically the lack of malay-ness that didn’t come out of my mouth – resorted to me being judged. My reaction to this is feeling “force-fed” and pressured to fit in.
Moral of the story: i still love talking English
4) Me + at a wedding = Thinking
The unpredictable thing that comes with this. Sometimes you wonder if you lose a sense of self, once you make the leap. Do you still become a person of your own mind, or do become someone’s wife? And no this isn’t about arranged marriage or any of that crap. Just passing thoughts…..
(still pro-marriage btw)
As you noticed, the Renaissance them is portrayed throughout my works. Mostly Bosch settings are used and this famous Arnolfini painting is used as my setting as well! Credits to these artists because I used their works….
Me + after presenting my works = DONE FOR THE SEMESTER yay!! 🙂
So, for this project, it was about me. We started out making thumbnail sketches of “Me + a social setting = My reaction”. I’ve made plenty of sketches below.
The ideas I had were quite narrative and literal. It had to be “abstractified”, so I had a hard time trying to make it more abstract. With the help of metaphors, symbols and some Photoshop here and there, I managed to make out some thumbnails. Ms Ina advised me to use some famous Renaissance paintings or portraits and incorporate that into my thumbnails as well. I’ve made some in the form of putting some of my faces in there.
In the meantime, I’ll be exploring more ways to “abstractify” my ideas about “Me + Setting = My Reaction” and wait for feedback from Ms Ina on the current images I have, as above. The next processes I’ll post soon, will probably be improved versions on current thumbnails, and the use of colours for them.q
