Barbara Kruger Midterm Inspiration
For my midterm project, I would like to create a piece of work that will be inspired by Barbara Kruger. Barbara Kruger is well-known for capturing a powerful image (via photography) and then putting a powerful message around/inside the image. In the sample above, Barbara Kruger emphasized the meaning of plagiarism into more powerful and personal terms. For my midterm project, I want to recreate the "Barbara Kruger idea" and capture a powerful image portraying the struggle with mental health. I hope to take a picture of one of my friends and create a saying to place around the image using paint samples. The saying around the picture will reflect the struggle of mental illness.
