What are your Personal Goals and Intention of this project?
We are going to do a palette knife painting of the Hong Kong sea and recording a timelapse of our project and create some music to go over the time lapse. Since Hong Kong is surrounded by water and we hope to capture the beauty of Hong Kong and express it with something tangible. We hope to convey the feeling of amazement and wonder we both see when we see Hong Kong’s scenery and we hope that the audience can understand how beautiful Hong Kong is Because Hongkongers are very busy and they always rush everywhere, we hope to encourage the audience to slow down and appreciate Hong Kong like we do. Desiree will have to create the 2-minute long audio track while Claudia and Cindy will work on the final artwork.
Hows does this project connect to your English Poem of choice?
Both poems include a lot of imagery and descriptions so having a visual component helps the audience envision what the poem is trying to describe. Cindy’s poem describes the beautiful sunsets of Hong Kong and Claudia’s poem talks about the pollution in Hong Kong’s oceans and harbors. With the painting of the sunset overlooking the ocean, we want the audience to first read our poems and envision what they read and after we show our final artwork. Both our poems are very descriptive and look at Hong Kong in a positive way and because there is a motif of painting/photo in Claudia’s poem, we choose a picture as our media of choice
