Time as an Element

For this project I did not have many ideas. It is such a broad concept I had trouble focusing on one single thing. Mr. Sands brought up a different aspect of time, being late. When I thought about being late I thought about all of those urgent feelings and how you are in a big hurry to get where you need to be. I also thought of the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. He is the prime example of how most people feel when they need to be somewhere, they have simply run out of time.

As I was sketching him I knew that I couldn't just simply draw him I had to make him unique. Most of my late experiences have come from trying not to be late for class so I decided to change him into a student.

 All of my previous projects have all been very small scale so I really wanted to do something different and take it outside of the classroom so I decided to blow him up and make him bigger.

Because I had used acrylic paint in my last project Mr. Sands recommended tempera. The colors were perfect because they were bright and intense.I painted him on some poster paper and taped him to the wall in the hallway. Overall I liked the final product. I think it was a very simple project but different. I don't really think I took much of a risk with it as I could have. Of the 5 characteristics I think that my project had a good concept.
