ShadowBox Photomontage after Joseph Cornell
This project is for my 2nd and 3rd year advanced design students. These students have a strong understanding of Composition as well as Photoshop layer-blends already; this assignment ramps that knowledge up a notch or two. First off Students are challenged to make a box from a scan of wood. Additionally they must make things look old and torn, and look dimensional. The objects must look like they are floating or afixed in this "box" somehow. Students also need to create surreal symbolic meaning to support their poem or subject matter of choice.
