Fashion Marche / Marie Antoinette
What is it about Marie Antoinette? I propose to explore this question by researching her life, her legacy, and the visual evidence of her time. There is an Antoinette obsession that I share with many others, from her time to our own. As I work with this material I will create a series of collages as well as a book incorporating my collages with vector art.
In the beginning of the semester I knew I wanted to create a series of collages on the subject of Marie Antoinette. I had trouble getting started because I felt my topic was too broad. I started creating anyway an continued with my research. When I discovered the pamphlets written about Antoinette I knew I had found my inspiration. From then on my collages went in a different direction. Once my thesis show was over I moved on to create a book. I started by making vector art comparing Marie to the modern-day girl while focussing on the “obsession” the world has with her From there I added collages I had made previously.

first semester —
Spoiler Alert poster series, that gets right to the good part, the spoiler. That’s right; a simple glance at the movie poster, and you can get right to the meat of the movie. No actual viewing of the film is necessary... I also would like to create something that will most certainly elicit a strong reaction out of the viewer; I believe creating a “normal” poster wouldn’t get the same level of response as it would if a spoiler was included.

Experimented with scrapbooks: one with things found in drawers, random pictures, extra scrap materials at hand; a second using only pages in a Vogue magazine; and a third using only polka dots.
Researched historical practices relating to scrapbooking (friendship albums, photo albums, commonplace books, extra-illustrated books, pressed flower books, sketchbooks, yearbooks, etc.), and developed a guide to such practices. For the gallery show, set up tables and materials for participatory scrapbooking.

I have three categories of work that I am doing. I have the horizontal nature related; vertical conceptual; and then smaller thought-provoking identity-based designs. I plan on jumping back and forth between these so I can keep my mind going and keep myself interested. Instead of driving myself crazy working on one of them.
