The assignment was to paint a set of color swatches based on 30 given keywords such as earwax, breath and technology based on our own perception of the keyword. The class was then asked to arrange these swatches according to keyword and we each had to select 1 keyword that we found interesting and create an artwork using the color swatches.
The keyword chosen here is 'Atom'. The initial idea was to cut out tiny pieces of the swatches and arrange them in a certain manner, and finally displayed under a microscope. The idea went through major changes towards the end, and ultimately became a digital illustration that incorporated the colors into tiny specks that were manipulated to have a particle-like effect.
