This week's project for the class I'm taking was to create small collages using only three elements and then name them.
I decided to exclusively use magazine images for my collages and I spent the day pushing pieces into different configurations.
I only needed to make six for class, but of course I made a few extras (though you'll notice a few only have two elements - perhaps they aren't done.)
Naming them was hard. I could only come up with titles that were too obvious and literal. I resorted to opening my box of random text and selecting titles from there. My course materials say "Titles are very important, they invite the viewer into each piece and also give them a hint as to what the work may be about."
You could spend a lot of time pondering the deep meaning of these titles, or you can picture me doubled over laughing as I matched collages with phrases.

It's late, I'm punchy, and there's another foot of snow heading our way. At least there's no shortage of paper, glue and silly captions.
