The Work Itself: This visual assignment asked to take a picture of an object and create as many augmented versions of it as possible. My object is a recycling bin in the convergence center. I chose this object because since it has a lid on top, it makes sense that fictional objects could be emerging out of it. I used clip art for two augmented photos and then drew two other augmented photos. Here are my separate flickr links to the three augmented pictures of a recycling bin.
Telling the Story Behind the Story: A recycling bin may not be as it appears. Who knows what could be living down there. With all the stuff that is thrown inside, the bin takes a life of its own. The bin is a supernatural object that miraculously can grow flowers, or even monsters. This fact is not revealed to the public, because the government is studying it and is afraid it could be related to aliens.
Narrating the Process: I took the original picture of the recycling bin with my iPhone. For the augmented versions, I used Pixlr Editor. I pasted the recycle bin as the first layer and then pasted my google images such as the monster for example as a second layer. I used the tools to position the objects as I saw they best fit. For the flower augmented version, I drew the flowers using the brush and sketch tools. For the alien or human recycle bin photo and fire can man photo I had to do the most edits.
