Word & Image...

Music, rather like food, is something, we as humans, can’t live without. It forms a universal language all of its own and as with food, can be a reflection on the country of origin, era, sociodemographic and other associated influences.

Working in groups of four throughout the duration of the unit, you are asked to respond to the following genres of music:

Bob Marley - Reggae.

You are required to collectively work together to produce an innovative and original printed visual presentation in response to the music, the lyrics and that of your research based upon the life-style of the artist/s.

Within your work, you may wish to use some or all of the lyrics of a particular song/s. The words should act as a catalyst for your interpretation and creative thinking. Consider playing the music and draw as you listen, enabling you to visually re-interpret the track/s and explore alternative meaning and suggestion. Your subsequent concepts could be far removed from the original intentions of the song. Equally, you may elect to research into the life of the artist/s and consider aspects of it for further interpretation.

It should be stressed that careful consideration needs to be given to the integration of words and images within your artwork.

Ultimately, your collective work may take the form of any of the following contexts:
Artist book
Studio display.
