Project 1 > Due Wed Sept 30th
Students contribute to a class image bank, sharing their collective documentation of landscape, architecture, plant life, people, transportation, recreation…
Individually, students develop Utopian visions of a new UMD campus. Students can explore the roots of utopian thinking, research artwork that depicts idealized communities through out history, or investigate virtual worlds in the digital era.
Each student creates at least 3 views of their utopian campus, rendered by using digital compositing techniques in photoshop. Final images should be horizontal format, printable to 8×10 (or larger). Keep print resolution at 200ppi, if possible. Some image bank images may be lower resolution.
Prepare a statement about your approach to this project and your vision of an ideal campus. ( about 150 words). Post to the blog by Mon Sept 28. Save images as jpgs for online photo gallery.
