Culture Jamming Ad

1 Comment

With thanks to:

 

The company that this ad represents and makes fun of is Walmart. The product that is being advertised is the store itself and that everything inside of it is shipped directly from china into the store. The imagery that they used to portray this is changed the name of the store to CHINA DIRECT.  The message from this text is CHINA DIRECT telling us that everything we are buying is not local and that they are probably being made in sweatshops for cheaper than they are being sold and the workers are not making like any money. The element and principles of design help convey the message because of the symmetry of the given new name of the building. So I believe that this culture jam message is a bit difficult to understand but it does show the message it is trying to portray. I think they could have made this better my having little children leaving/walking into the store in the Walmart uniform to show that they are the ones who make all the stuff and now they are trying to sell it.

I decided to do a collage on my sister because of all the cool things she likes. I thought it would make a really cool picture once I put all the different things she liked onto paper. I really like how it turned out. My sister really loves pandas that is why there is a whole bunch of pandas. I chose the picture of her wearing a panda hat just to help emphasize her love for pandas. I know my sister loves batman and the moon so i thought it would be a cool idea to kind of merge the two together to make the moon and the symbol work together. I also put it high in the sky as it it was Gotham city calling for batman’s help for something like in the show/movies. My sister and her friends always joke about her hair colour saying she is a ginger and to be funny I put “I am a ginger” cause she says it all the time and she has red hair. I put facebook on her page because of how much she loves it she is usually on it writing statuses and everything so i thought i would include that in her picture. She also has a huge passion for music that is why i put music notes in the darkness to resemble the stars and her love for music.

I really enjoyed doing this collage cause I got to have fun getting to know a lot more about my sister and hanging out with her to see if she liked how the collage turned out.

While I was working on this collage I learned how to use the opacity to make the image seam ghost like or merge with other images and would be able to help people learn how to use it as well.

I was definitely satisfied with this collage because it turned out better than i expected and i think it looks really cool my sister even made it her profile picture on her facebook.

I feel it was easier to make a collage of my sister because she can tell me what she likes and that what i can decide to put on my collage. I feel that making a collage of myself can be difficult because there is so much about you that you would like to put in the picture but you only have room for the things that are really about you. I feel it would be easier to do someone else because you are given information by them or what you know about them from hanging out you can just put that to what is given to you instead of you worrying about what to put about yourself.

In  my collage I felt that I should put all the things that make me feel like me when I look at my collage. I put the soccer balls in my collage getting bigger and bigger because over the years I have enjoyed playing soccer more and more every year that I have played. I put the word DvD on my collage because I love to watch movies. I put the word in the centre of the scene because I feel that lately I have been watching more movies than I have before because I like trying to figure out their message and I really enjoy some of the acting in the films. I put the flaming “S” symbol in my picture to show that my favourite Show is Smalleville which is about the story of how Superman became who he is and how he figures out how to use his powers for good. I took a picture when I was in Alberta a couple years ago and I loved it and in the future I hope I will live there. So to make it look cool i took the clone tool and clones the modern warfare symbol on the mountain to make it look a part of the mountain.

This collage has altered my thoughts by trying to make a picture represent me. It made me think about who I feel I am and how to put it down on paper.

I learned how to use the quick edit to change the lighting and colours of a picture to change the effect I am showing in my pictures and would be able to show someone how to use it.

When making this collage I didn’t find it as satisfying as i wanted because it can be difficult to use photoshop and get what it is your trying to show but after it was done i was happy with it even if it is not professional looking.

I feel it is easier to make a collage of someone else as long as you have information from them because, I feel that making a collage of myself can be difficult because there is so much about you that you would like to put in the picture but you only have room for the things that are really about you. I feel it would be easier to do someone else because you are given information by them or what you know about them from hanging out you can just put that to what is given to you instead of you worrying about what to put about yourself.

Ryan Larkin Documentary Film

1 Comment

When watching the film Ryan by Chris Landreth I liked all the cool animations that were shown in the film. My favourite part was how when they looked at their reflection in the mirrors that there face had scare like colours out of their face our body. I also thought it was cool how the colours worked with the emotion of the character like in one scene when Ryan Larkin started raising his voice the colour on his body was going red and red spikes flew out of him. I thought this stuff was cool because of the use of colours and animation created by Chris Landreth. I also enjoyed hearing that Ryan hand drew all his pictures and coloured them all too, that must have taken lots of time and commitment to do something like that. Which means he took pride in his work and it might have been special to him. In the film I didn’t like that at some parts I got confused like when the colours wrapped around the person, I didn’t quite understand the meaning of why that was happening. The principles of media arts that I noticed in the film were Hybridization where he combined the colours to the characters in the film with their emotions as if the colours were scars in their lives.
