As a starter project for Adobe Photoshop and a smaller scale version of the micro/macrocosms that we will be making later, we are working on a Black Cat project.
[Black Cat is an Agnes Scott College tradition that originated in the 1920s with a prank night between the sophomores and the first years. It evolved into a week of oddball activities and competitions, including decorating the quad in one’s class colors at midnight that Monday, dance, song, party day, field day, trivia, and Scottie fundraising. It culminates at Junior Production with performances from all classes of their songs and dances, and a play that satirizes Agnes life. Then there is our semiformal dance.
Classes are assigned a color: red, blue, yellow, green. Each one chooses their own mascot freshman year. Red and blue (seniors and sophomores this year) are “sisters;” green and yellow (the juniors and 1st years, respectively) are “sisters.”]
In this scenario, each of us is a part of the Black Cat committee for our class (GO FOXES!!) We are in charge of designing quad decorations and mapping them out, proposing a theme and plan of attack to our class.
The objects must be realistically executable–shown to scale and capable of being made in a weekend in the basement of Winship, to be exact. The theme doesn’t have to correspond to our actual mascot, but it DOES have to proliferate your class color and make sense.
We each had to take a photo of the quad to start, as a background, and then find photos of objects we want to use.
My theme is based on video and arcade, called “GAME OVER! (WE are the Champions)”
