The Dream

Scattered Dreams like Far-Off Memories


Man's Best Friend, Child's Worst Nightmare

We have dreams that make us happy, dreams that make us sad, dreams that frighten us, and dreams that just flat out confuse us. However, while I took this project as such, I also viewed this project as dreams that we aspire to. For example, your dream car, or your dream home, or in this case, my dream job. I've felt that my passion and my calling is either helping people, or entertaining people and making them happy. These dream jobs of mine are acting or perhaps comedy. The problem with these jobs is that A) It takes a lot of time, patience, and hard-work to attain what you seek and B) They aren't paid very well (unless you somehow make it into Hollywood).  This is why my auditorium is empty; This is a dream that while I want to come true, I know in my heart of hearts that it more than likely won't come true.
I'm a performer without an audience.

Now then, let's talk of an actual dream that I had.
This is Puppy. Puppy has been my dog since I was little. I've had him longer than any other toy, and he's my oldest friend. When I was younger, I had this dream where I picked him up to play with him, but something was different. You see, he has these white dots in the top corners of his eyes, as a sort of light and/or pupil. In my dream, however, these white dots were gone. I only saw what you see before you; just dark pits staring back at you. As I continued to look at him, the room started to grow darker and darker, and I felt this presence that added immense pressure to the atmosphere of the room. Needless to say, this dream had turned into a nightmare.

Reading the Photo #2

Jonathan Bachman/Reuters
Interpret it
What title would you give this photograph? What made you decide on that title?
I would call it "Defiance" or "Chivalry" because the woman is clearly standing up for something, but at the same time, the policemen appear to be backing away from her. Perhaps out of respect?

Evaluate it
What do you think is worth remembering about this photograph?
The way that she is standing tall, straight, confidently, and true. There is a line of riot-geared police officers in front of her, and she's unflinching. It's powerful.

Reading the Photo #1

Describe it.

1) Look at this photograph. What observations can you make about it?
The man in the yellow shirt seems almost photoshopped into the photo. While everyone on the left has the right coloration, the man in the yellow shirt seems brighter and blurrier, almost giving him that appearance of "he doesn't belong here."

2) How would you describe the place depicted in this photograph?
Everyone seems almost out of place as a whole, but they belong where they are split. For example, the man in the yellow shirt is wearing a brighter shirt, and his side of the photo seems to be brighter and more colorful. While on the other side, the group of people are all wearing not as vibrant colors, and are thus on the more grey side of the photo.

Relate it.

1) What does this photograph remind you of?
Adversity. Accepting yourself and breaking away from the mainstream.

2) What interests you most about this work of art?
I really like how the man with the more vibrant clothing is in a brighter, more vibrant surrounding.

Analyze it.

1) What is closer to you? Further away?
The yellow-shirted man is closer to the viewer, while the other people seem to be following behind him.

2) What makes this photograph look crowded?
Everyone in the photo is surrounded by water, giving that sort of island feel to it, despite the train tracks that continue behind them.

Interpret it.

1) What title would you give this photograph?
"Hardship with a 70% chance of showers"

2) Pretend you are in this photograph. What does it feel like?
It feels like it's going to rain.

Evaluate it.

1) What do you think is good about this photograph? What is not so good?
I think that separation of the yellow-shirted man and the rest of the group is good. How the shirted-man looks in the photo, however, could use work.

2) Why do you think other people should see this photograph?
To weigh in on their interpretations on this photo and the story they come up with.
