Using photography and mixed media to explore inner and outer identity
Students will alter photographic self portraits with embroidery and other media to explore their inner vs. outer identity. They will begin with a photography portion, in which they will set up, shoot, edit and print self portraits. They will then use embroidery and other media of their choosing to explore how their inner self differs from their outward appearance. They may take many approaches to this concept, ranging from biological inner structures, to how past experience shapes identity, to fashion and appearance, and so on.
