After consulting Ms Ina on my samples: here are potential works I might use for finals.
I’m bad at being organized. I’m not so simple-minded. So sometimes when I’m on PS I’ll be exploring new patterns and play around with overlays and editing, that the outcome is so different from what I idealized. But towards the end you get a final gist of my themes in this Project Ego. And the ways to describe myself.
Me + Dance team = Struggle to fit in
Samples of “struggle to fit in”
I made use of Bosch paintings as backdrop. I played around with the overlays on my portraits and oversized it, to portray that feeling i wanted. I thought the black face was really cool.
The ones below people are some patterns I found quite disturbing. They’re similar to Bosch’s theme, whose paintings not only about naked people running around. but some surrealistic elements and disturbing human features in there.
This showed another side of my ego
Me + At dance practice= talking unnecessarily with girls, chit chatting, trying to fit in
Another side of my ego = shyness in social events like weddings and stuff like that. I thought of using batik patterns and hiding myself at some parts, as if trying to blend into the pattern.
This idea was not my best. But batiks are still pretty still. Instead, I was advised to use this cracked glass (below) to show a shyness. I made use of this eventually.
