Push Workshop 2016
The first step of the Push Workshop was to visually explore and experiment with an assigned material. I received jelly as my material. Some of my photographic explorations are shown here.

Next, we drew inspiration from a certain word and misuse common digital design tools to create visually appealing compositions. I used "dissect" as my kicking-off point and used both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator to create these compositions.

The second step was to use several of my classmates' images and re-imagine the photos into individualized thank you cards. The thank you cards were then given to the individuals as thanks for letting me steal their images. Here, I show the images I stole from the respective designers, as well as the materials they used.
I took the images and made mosaic patterns from them and printed them in square sheets. For the bread and candle images, I printed two versions - more on that later!
The square sheets were printed on plain white computer paper. I was afraid the computer paper would be too thick to fold into origami but it ended up working well.
I made cards for each of the people I stole from using the patterns.
I used the origami paper to fold into origami shapes matching the material used in the original photos: makeup (lipstick), candles, bread (croissant), and eggs. I used two different patterns from the croissant and candle since those objects were made from two different sheets of paper. I then attached the cards to the origami objects with leather cord to make personalized tagged thank you notes.
