Visual Analysis on Post Modernism Project

                 For my project, the denotative aspects consisted of my photo-shopped image of a street with the right side a blur and the left side with a castle in the background. (the castle was a separate image I photo-shopped on the picture of the street). The paint on the piece drags off the picture and is continued on the whole paper. There are words written in ink such as "adventure, discover, explore and life."
                 The connotative and ideological aspects pulled from my piece can mean a couple of different things.   When creating this piece, I interpreted it as the right side is like having amnesia; everything winds up being a blur and is hard to remember what happened. As you continue on the street or as you drive further on down a road, you can wind up finding a new discovery or something that has never been seen before. I wanted this piece to represent the quote, "Driving is a spectacular form of amnesia. Everything is to be discovered, everything to be obliterated." As you drive down any road, you are exploring, adventuring, discovering new things and seeing so many unique things that you may have not noticed before.
             I wanted to add the fantasy and magical touch to the piece by adding a castle in the background just to show that anything can be discovered. Driving can be such a thrill and such an adventure to many because the roads are endless and can lead people to magnificent sights.
