I was tasked with choosing a song and choosing one with some type of meaning to me. From there we took the lyrics, images, etc. and printed them on transparencies to be used on projectors. We then would create interesting patterns and layer these transparencies of text with other items, just as colored plastics, colored liquid, etc. and take photographs of these different compositions. From these images I designed a poster.
I went with a Michael Jackson song, which was the obvious choice for me. The hard part was choosing what song. I ended up going with Leave Me Alone. At the time it had various meaning for me and its passionate, almost angry tone was something I could relate to at the moment. So I went with reds and oranges. I typeset the text on transparencies, layered red and orange plastics and also some clear textured plastics I found to create some interesting effects.
