Assignments: Our Story/FourIcons
This idea was first suggested by Tom Woodward and has been a long standing popular ds106 assignment. The assignment is to reduce a movie, story, or event into its basic elements, then take those visuals and reduce them further to simple icons, four of them. Write your blog post up but do not give away the answer, let people guess! The challenge is to find the icons that suggest the story, but do not make it so easy. For icons a great resource is The Noun Project.
This is one of the harder assignments even though it’s so simple. The creation of it was super easy…the process of finding the right pictures and choosing what to put on was difficult because it was only 4 icons! I tried to make it work by which scenes in this movie stood out to me the most but I have seen it so many times that I think every moment is important…that made things difficult so I just choose a big moment in the movie (the part where the conflict began)
HOW IT WORKS:
1.) I found four icons that represent this moment in the movie
2.) I added them on Krita as transparent layers and lined them one by one according to the order of events.
3.) I exported this image as a .png file and added to this blog post!
