EMILY STEPHENS

Before I added the final touches.

Reflecting on my personal definition of remix, I made a collage for my self-portrait. My original plan was to conceive a video mash-up of clips that represented me, but my skills were not advanced enough. I resolved to manufacture a collage, since I had experience making my vision board. I collected my photos and words from Bella Grace, Nash Country Weekly, and Brides of Oklahoma magazine. I also printed off some personal photos from my laptop, along with some images I accumulated from Google and my Pinterest account. My focus was to construct a large, analog visual that depicted my personality and passions. I cited all of the photographs; however, citing the words I cut out was hopeless. Elements of my collage that I aimed to stress were my positivity, my love for coffee, and my obsession with Adele and Reba. I incorporated Mamma Chia bottle caps on my foam board to add a 3D aspect and to highlight my zeal. Adding to the 3D feature, I included Starbucks drink stoppers and a coffee sleeve to display my infatuation with caffeine. I think the overall disposition of my collage is amiable, serene, and joyous. My self-portrait will be included in my final three.
