Sustained investigation Opener in Google Classroom

Sustained investigation Opener

On a google doc, write out your opening paragraph explaining your Sustain Investigation in a clear way. This opener should be what you plan on submitting for the beginning written portion of your portfolio. For it could explain why this is important to you, what visual imagery you plan on using, what materials are going to be used and if there is a reason for it, what elements or principals of design are themes

Example #1 
In my body of work, I allude to elemental forms God uses to make Himself known. Manipulation of sediments, coffee grounds, and water samples are symbolic depictions of veils, a memorial of boundary or control. I create macrocosms through my process to depict universal and personal relations with God through demarcation. The use of raw, mundane forms are representative of vulnerability and identify the body of work.

Examples #2
My sustained investigation is about loneliness created by the feeling of being trapped and closed off and its role in the process of growing up. I aim to show loneliness through using contrast and 3-D elements such as plastic to create separation between the main subject and its surroundings.
