Project 1 Post Mortem :: Your Choice

We installed the project in various spots across the 2nd floor of Heimbold. Printed the photos and price tags, we stuck them onto the wall with double-sided tape. We installed five different groups of juxtapositions:

Milk OR Organic Milk?
Milk OR Organic Milk?
Eggs OR Organic Eggs?
Eggs OR Organic Eggs?
Coke OR Juice?
Coke OR Juice?
Canned Tomatoes OR Fresh Tomatoes?
Canned Tomatoes OR Fresh Tomatoes?
Frozen Blackberries OR Fresh Blackberries?
Frozen Blackberries OR Fresh Blackberries?

We took photos of different commodities in Stop & Shop near our campus. Afterwards, we put them into Adobe Illustrator to posterize them, in order to make it look less like actual photos. When printing these images out, we faced the problem of finding appropriate printing paper that works with the school’s printer, but that was easily solved, just a matter of time. The photos were then framed with photo mattes to signify the integrity of the projects.

Our idea did go through many transitions and changed a lot over time. We are glad our project turned out the way it did.
