Communicative Shapes

Matthew McGehee

Our assignemnet was to observe a street intersection (mine was Forbes and Bouquet), write about what we saw and how we felt, and then take photographs representative of our writing. We then did a series of works in which we abstracted the shapes in one of our pictures, cut them out of paper, and then layered the cut pieces to create a 6"x8" image. We did a white iteration, a grayscale iteration, and an iteration that incorporated one color into the grayscale.
