Blog 6: OZAYR, THIS IS A MATTER OF LIFE OR DEATH.
Hi there! I know we haven't known each other very long or anything, but I'm going to go ahead and ask you for a little favor, mmkay? Pretty, pretty please never say the words "facade" or "evocative" ever again. My heart hurts a little more every time I hear them, and if you say these words even just once again, I think my head might explode a little too. I can't really blame you for my abhorrence of the f word, this is mostly because Leslie used it in 1281 like most people use the word "like," but the e word is all you buddy. I even looked up some synonyms for you, courtesy of thesaurus.com: expressive, redolent, graphic. So to conclude my rant, I'd just like to say that I mean no disrespect, but seriously you might kill me if you keep this up. And then my mom would have to hate you.
Now for blogging!
I'm actually really confused by this blog topic. Okay, nevermind, not any more. I went to deviantart.com, and got some ideas. On this website, there are a ton of entries that portray women in an exceptionally dominant manner. Once again, I have goal 3, which is promote gender equality and empower women. In the presentation of our project, I know we have to be especially conscious not to make our goals for women to not be especially dominant persay, but equal. It can be a really fine line, I know, and I even find myself slipping and making the mistake of confusing women in a dominant role over men as women in an equal role to men. It often feels like we must overcompensate in the areas where we have been slighted in the past. But alas! That's not the goal.
Sooo, this blog entry, haha. Well my ideas for the presentation of this project are pretty simple, I'd say. I would really like a layout and presentation for this project that absolutely BLEEDS of equality, but does not scream it blatantly. In a perfect world, our presentation would be completely understated and factual. I don't know if we're supposed to or encouraged to add fluff/fillers, but I really hope not because I have been trained in my entire career as a student to avoid this at all costs.
You know, come to think of it, I find design SO. INCREDIBLY. CONFUSING. I honestly can't figure out if this class is helping me at all or losing me even more. I didn't really understand what was expected of us for this project until today when Jeff aided me and one of my group members. Therefore, this blog prompt also confuses me. And I believe my entire entry here is really disjointed but it's late.
