This online quiz was created to inform the reader about what their subconscious is trying to tell them. Not sure if a website is the appropriate form, but gets me thinking more about interactive digital forms. Researching more into data collection and decision making.
Stemming from my last lexicon, this foldable is asking the reader questions and giving them information about their subconscious. Needs more type variation and interest. Good starting point for an interactive form.
Second iteration of my lexicon. Narrowed down the terms surrounding how the subconscious affects human behavior.
First draft of my lexicon of terms related to my interests.
Blood, sleep, emotional, present, reaction, time
One of my first iterations of chapter 36 of The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick, related to these 3D forms created last week.
Coming from the list of my interests ~here~, I have started narrowing down topics of things I’d like to dive further into. Currently I’m researching how pop culture relates and affects the subconscious mind and human behavior. Here’s a visual map showing how the terms in both subjects are associated.
This week for Type 3, we were assigned with creating 3d models in response to Philip K. Dick’s writings in “Valis”. My hanging mobile was inspired by the of the shape of the universe and levels of consciousness, which I’m currently researching for another class. I wanted the form to feel organic and free, and I think I accomplished that. The most interesting aspect of this structure is the play on shadows and negative space.
My other project is a reflection of how information is separated and can be organized. The balloons represents how the story mentions the living information came to the narrator through a pink light.

To me, jazz is expressive, spontaneous, and passionate – exactly what I want my viewers to think of my jazz posters. Because the target audience of this project was younger adults and millennials, I wanted to put a contemporary twist on traditional jazz by using bold colors and abstract, simplified shapes. Several of the visiting artists are doing just that in their music.
Instead of illustrating the artists’ physical form, I wanted to find a way to visually represent sound and music. After doing a bit of research, I found several composers who wrote scores in unique ways that didn’t use traditional music notation. Most examples included basic geometric shapes to symbolize sound. The patterns and forms used instantly reminded me of letters and how type is constructed. By integrating the music shapes and typography, it created an interesting play on bridging visual sound and language, as music is a language in itself.
While all six of the artists have a lot in common, it is important to keep in mind how they stand apart from each other. Every poster has an icon to reference the artist, such as an orange for Marcus Roberts Trio (symbolic for Jacksonville Florida, Roberts’ hometown), or a washboard to hint at The Hot Sardines’ unique instrumentation.
Overall, I am happy with how my posters turned out. I made a ton of great progress along the way and invested so much energy and time into making them. Excited to visit the Folly again as an audience member to see some of the jazz artists!
