For my final project, I'd like to expand my idea from one of the warm up exercises that involved the painting "The Son of Man." What I'd like to do is create an installation of a physical embodiment of the man in the painting. I'll get a mannequin and a set of a man's suit that looks similar, along with a green apple and a wire so I can hang it in front of the man's face. Then I'll put a bunch of different colors of markers around, so the audience can freely draw out and change the looks or facial expression of the man. I'm also considering getting different kinds of props, such as jewelry or different hats.
Finally, I'll connect a speaker to the interior of the mannequin which is connected to my phone, so people can talk to the mannequin using a Siri.
