Poetics of Time | For this final project, we were given the freedom to create an encounter that expresses either one of the categories of time. For me, I chose measured time, also known as actual or clock time. Besides, I also chose to do  installation art for a change.

4D | Project 3 : Impossibilities of Being [Final]

A balloon is a flexible bag made from materials such as rubber and/or latex that can be inflated with helium, air or even water. Commonly given for special occasions, balloons are used for decorative and/or entertainment purposes.

4D | Project 2 : The Subverted Object

Kon’nichiwa! This post will be on our second project for Foundation 4D | Project 2: The Subverted Object.

In this project, we are given 3 different pictorial task to complete with the assigned object to us:

Task 1: Denotation  Where we photograph the object from various angles, capturing the object’s:

  • Physical attributes: shape, form, texture and material.
  • Practical function: context, environment and interaction
Task 2: Connotation  Where we subvert the object’s meaning through other elements and capture the object’s:

  • Cultural relevance and meaning
  • Celebrate or change or critique the object’s meaning.
Task 3: Text and Image Where we select an image from Task 1 or 2 and give a title to it.
