Using alien and outer space visuals to explore the theme of isolation, I'll be creating cohesive images linked by color palettes and geometric elements. This exploration will conclude in a series of designs for a brand, called 'alienation', and will be printed on to various surfaces such as posters, t-shirts, etc.

|This was a small sketch in my sketchbook so I apologize for quality|
|I would like to explore the use of speech bubbles in more depth, as I tend to use them in many of my sketches|

thesis revisions and 140-character summaries
We need thesis proposals/statements that are current, reflect where you are now in terms of thinking, theme, the work itself.
We also need 140-character (tweet length) summaries, and titles for each project.
Nothing is written in stone; we just need the language to match current realities. Bring on Tuesday, or — better — e-mail ahead.
We need to see things. Minimum one blog post per week.
If you are posting a link, provide information about that link, and why you are pointing us to it. Why should we look at it? Why is it important to you? How does it relate to your work or your thinking?
Title the post.
blog posts, p.s.
It is much, much easier to see sketches posted on the blog, from the large monitor, than it is to look at a piece of 8.5x11 paper on table or wall.
reminder, that we are taking notes on discussions of our colleagues' work, on a revolving basis from week to week. You are to e-mail those notes to the respective student (and to me), within 24 hours of the discussion. Ordinarily, this will be one record per week; on occasion, we might discuss a student's work on both days — where that happens, you will take and provide notes for both of those discussions.
The responsibilities for the seminar meetings to date (and for the next two weeks) are listed below. Names in red are those from whom notes have not been received.

As of late I am working in the realm of music; a passion of mine from a very young age. Through this I am going to create an album/ collection of music with visual discoveries of color & abstracted forms present in my written music through means of synesthesia studies.
Synesthesia will be a part of my research as well as looking into the studies of Joseph Schillinger.
Through these two sources of inspiration I plan on writing music that explores different genres of music; playing with pitch and tone in order to find different colors and forms found in the music I will write. I want to create both visual & melodic pieces of art through means of music exploration.

Right now the project is in a developmental phase. It will challenge viewers to see the current state of affairs in our world for what they are, not for how we think they are. For example, there is a predispositioned picture in our brain when we think of global warming but, is a polar bear on a shrinking iceberg really what that looks like? Is that really the extent of human impact, or is it more sinister than that? How deep do the consequences of us living here really sink, and is it too late for us to redeem ourselves? If you asked if humans deserved a chance of redemption, I would say that redemption isn't the goal but our only option. It's time to become aware now more than ever.

All seminar projects should have a title (always subject to change), and a 140-character (tweet length) summary (also may be changed). Optional: three or four #tags, possibly worked into that tweet-length summary, that help orient the work to larger (social, thematic, political etc) concerns.
For Tuesday: Have titles and 140-character summaries; do the readings; discuss current movements in your projects/initiatives.
This post is tagged with everyone's tag (or "label"), so you can see your name in the "posts by" list on main blog page, right column.
The two readings I assigned are these
design thinking, yet again, because, maybe, it could actually be useful, perhaps even necessary, given every thing
