Link to Corrine's blog with web image, PSD and source images. My commentary below the cut.
This assignment was fun. The finished piece doesn't yet have a formal title, but I would probably call it something like "McLuhan and the Mediums (The Message)." The bodies in the photo belong to three rather fearsome Polish Karate enthusiasts; I'm not sure where they figure in that title. Maybe they're the Message.
Corrine and I both immediately gravitated towards a kind of Dadaist/Surrealist interpretation of the assignment. Looking over some of the blogs of my classmates, I can see that interpretation isn't uncommon. I suppose that, given the instruction to use "disparate elements" but otherwise having free range, individuals will tend to explore their own dream world, much as Miro, Kandinsky, Magritte, etc. Unlike these hallowed artists, however, ITPers' dream worlds seem focused nearly exclusively on pop culture icons.
