A piece in 1.5 hours

Last Friday, Kelly gave us a 1.5-hour break during class and asked us to create an artwork in this time. On my walk back to my apartment, I thought back to her lecture at the Without You I'm Nothing exhibition. Vito Acconci's clam shell crossed my mind again, and suddenly I was thinking about different uses for his clamshell.
I brainstormed a list of alternative uses, and quickly drafted four posters to illustrate them.

Kelly then asked us to improve our 1.5-hour pieces. I re-created one of them, then created four more to expand the idea. The posters are kind of comical and kitstchy and were more about Photoshop exercises than anything else.

See all of them behind the jump!
