Goal: Build a thematic rollercoaster centered on a certain time period or idea.
Description: Every person has a story. Our lives are a journey of accomplishments, setbacks, happiness, depression, and every facet in between. In this project, we explored the human experience: what makes us, “us”? What connections do we have with others? How do we all relate while still retain our individuality?
We tackled this idea in three ways:
A series of interviews from those of various backgrounds and perspectives on their lives.
An analysis: what makes them tick - what informs their daily life.
An artistic representation - both visually and linguistically - of that person to share with the world.
We pieced together our final production through a connecting poem and magazine cutouts.
