When making a collage I don't think I put a bunch of thought into it. One reason is because it was about me. Its always easy for me to talk about myself although it always takes some thinking I still know what my main strengths and weaknesses are. I think when making the collage the art portion comes into play when we take so many random things and bring them together as one. I would say that a collage is a type of Dada art. In my collage I think I took the most time on putting the letters together for the titles on both sides. I like text and not just text or font that you see on many computer software but creative font or unique font. When I took the font out of the magazine I wanted to mix and match them and that is what a collage allow me to do.
When it came to the video I felt like this was much different than making a collage. Because we were only able to use the video that we were given it was harder to add and mix many different things like we were able to do with using different magazines. The video also was difficult to use because it was so old. When we thing of technology and the modern way of editing we hardly think of black and white unless it is a filter or an effect. With the video being so old it did make it much harder to come up with a concrete idea. After doing peer critics I did see that all of my classmates ended up coming up with great ideas from the video that many of us felt was old and hard to work with.
