  • Objective: Starting on January 1st 2012, I took a self portrait a week for an entire year.
     
    Audience: Myself, my peers, and judges at the Ferris State University Honors Art Show.
     
    Solution: My weekly self-portraits became reflections of myself: what I had experienced that week, what my struggles had been, what I had contemplated, what I was working on, etc. At the end of each week, I sought to create a photograph that uniquely captured the essence of that week. I grew in my ability to portray emotions and concepts through photography, and also became more bold in my self-expression through these images. For the annual Honors Art Show, I created a piece that allowed the audience to experience each image as I did, by first sharing a one-word emotion tied to the week, and then allowing them to see the image associated with that emotion.
