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:
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.
