I thought I'd share my final project for an art class I took last spring quarter. This is much different than a lot of my other work, but it was a fun project to work on. Watch the video below and then click "Show More" below for an explanation of the project. (Make sure to watch the video first, though, because the explanation spoils it.)

The first section of the video is "Green and Grey - Exploring the Interplay of Vegetation and Cement in Urban Environments" because there were trees and sidewalks or streets in pretty much every photo. I wanted a pretentious artsy-academic sounding title so that people though I was trying hard to be profound. I repeated this process for the second section, called "Cars and Paths - An Intimate Look at our Means of Transportation" because there were cars in nearly every shot. The final section reveals that everything is random, and hopefully it becomes obvious that the themes were fabricated. Were you fooled?
