Lesson Plan

Well it has been a while since my last post. I have been very busy, working on various projects, and none of them near completion. It is this state of being incomplete that makes me weary from posting any new art. However, with that said, I have decided to put up a work in progress. Over the past few weeks I have been constructing a self portrait lesson plan designed for high School students. it involves looking up celebrity photos and constructing a collage of sorts from the chosen photos. The lesson entitled "Movie Me,' as cleverly labeled by my partner, is an egocentric exercise in pondering the thought;"if a movie was made about you, what actor would play you?' Needless to say this lesson plan quickly morphed into my own art project and transcended any normal self portrait exercise. The image you see is a construction that began as an exemplar for the students to follow, and later evolved into my own personal project. Although in its current, unfinished state, I did not intend for the students to witness this piece as their exemplar to follow; however the animation is intended for student viewing. I plan on having students observe the various stages in the process to gain an understanding of the direction the project is to take. I hope you find the product interesting, and I will post future developments of this images evolution.
