Apophenia

So for this assignment, we had to make as many augmented versions of something in our house.  I chose this (totally copyright free) jar of Planters peanuts:

Now I can imagine somebody might really kind of despise peanuts.  Just starts screaming at the sight of them.

I could also imagine …

Just a Little Imagination

Is that a green raccoon tail hanging on the wall? Nope, that is just a plain ol’ feather duster. If you stare at it long enough, you can easily mistake it for a raccoon tail or even Mountain Dew spilling out the can. …

The Ludovico Technique

Our third and final Visual Assignment for the week is also the one all of my classmates had to undertake, as we took a simple household object, and tried to see it in a new way. Naturally, I decided to go with a tomato, since it was the only thing …

Thirty-five Cents, and Some Imagination

Apophenia- visual assignment 1255

In order to figure out what exactly this assignment was, because I didn’t really understand I looked at these two blogs (2 separate hyperlinks). I didn’t like how much they covered up the original image so I tried not to do that in my project, but I thought the coffee …

Bucket Apophenia! (3 stars ish)

Apophenia

I found this assignment (3 1/2 stars) to be the most difficult. It wasn’t the assignment that drove me crazy, it was finding the right object to use. I eventually decided on using these colored shot glasses that were just sitting in a box in my room. But now the …

Apophenia with my waffles

Apophenia 3.5 stars

For this assignment, we were instructed to take a normal, every day object and turn it into something else. I actually put off doing this assignment because I really didn’t want to do it. Something about the idea of it just didn’t jive with me, and it …

Apophenia

This assignment was defiantly a struggle for me. I am not super artistic or creative so just finding something that I could create others things out of was a big enough struggle in itself. I finally decided on a vitamin cap, because it was simple and since I don’t have …

Apophenia

This visual assignment was a lot harder than I thought. I really took a lot of creativity.  First I took my random object just a simple pair of scissors. Then I uploaded the photo into three different websites to do each photo. My first and second photo I uploaded into …

What Do You See?

Take your teeth out and be creative…Gross.

           For the Apophenia assignment I thought of using something, well, unusual? This may be weird, nasty, and not normal, but I had been talking with my family about what I had to do for this assignment, and my grandmother had the idea of using her dentures. Well we all laughed …

Apophenia
