Kiersten Post, Student Work

Assignment: Drawing on Objects
For this project I began with the idea of intellectual illumination. I wanted my piece to inspire or educate. The lightbulb has always been a symbol for an idea. I decided to add a social component to my project and educate the viewer about social or environmental causes. I wrote the fact on the lightbulb first and then covered it with gesso until the words could not be seen. When the light is turned on the words appear through the gesso. The point of having the viewer turn on the light is that a person has to be willing to learn the truth even though it may not be easy to hear. -Kiersten Post, Fall 2013
