Create a personal visual response to Parable of The Sower. Reflect on the visual analysis exercises and in class discussions for Parable and The Sower to create a collection of images that visually communicate your perception of Octavia Butler's story.
Step I, Collect Images:
- Collect images that visually communicate your perception of Parable of The Sower.
- Select images that reflect your understanding of the narrative.
- Select images that reflect the emotions you experienced when reading the narrative.
- Select images that reflect how you imagine the narrative before or after the author's story.
- Select images that connect your personal experience with the narrative.
- Do not:
- Do not select images from the illustrators that depict images in the graphic novel.
- Do not select images of book covers.
- Do not include images of the author.
- Do not include images with text.
- Use images from the internet and/or images you take yourself.
- Include at least eight (8) images. No more than twelve (12).
Step II, Begin to Arrange Images:
- Place all images on one page.
- Maintain a thin border around each image (refer to examples below).
- Note: the examples below are not examples of this assignment.
- Carefully consider how the formal qualities of the images such as line, color, texture, shape, composition, scale visually communicate your perceptions.
- Perhaps you want one image to be a focal point. How will this be achieved? Place in center? Or have a grid with one image in color and the others in black and white. Or maybe you will have one image with different content from the rest.
- You can also utilize a theme. Perhaps all images are portraits of people. Or maybe all images contain the same dominant color.
Step III, Title:
- Assign a title to your visual response. Place title underneath image collection.
Step IV, Image Source Links:
- In a separate document, list links to all images.
- Include your name in the document .
