With your next project in mind, to create your own surreal, dreamlike world through perspective, look at the 5 following links and comment on what image interests you at each link. Comment on one image at each of the 5 sites and for each make observations about: a) the technical aspects of making a surreal scene (interior, building, etc.) and, b) the emotional effect. (Note, the modern architecture at the last site is not surreal but some of the buildings are so unusual, they inspire the imagination. Comment on the technical feats and the resultant emotional effect.)
For your sketchbook, spend an hour planning your surreal perspective drawing with a variety sketches, ideas, plans, and thumbnails. Visually brainstorm so you can start your project in class on Monday.
The final drawing needs to show a building, exterior or interior, in perspective with a surrealist component, to create an emotional, imaginative, fantastical, or ridiculous effect. If your building is in one point perspective, you need to have something in the drawing showing 2 point perspective (i.e. floating mailbox or chair.)
Some standards for a surrealist effect: change of scale, context, change of physical characteristics.
The drawing will be finished with full shading in black and white and color, for expressive effect.
