the assignment.
how many photographs can you capture each day based on the (daily) posted color schemes? how many new colors can you name, perhaps based on the subject / colors of your photography? what comes first- the rose or the color of a rose? which red is what red- wine or sangria? and ultimately, how do you wrap your mind around the fact that a color is actually what it is not? (think wavelengths and prisms… blue is reflected, only because all the other colors are absorbed… blue is what it is NOT…hmm…)
submit a collection of photographs inspired by the shade of the day -a different color scheme posted on our site daily for your inspiration. caption each picture with your own new, adventurous, color name. seek to contribute your work daily or as a collection (of collections) at the end of the assignment week. please submit your completed assignments by the end of the assignment week via email: adventureclubinteractive@gmail.com

 

adventure noir assignment.

Film_Noir_Blinds

i was sitting at my desk minding my own business, trying to stay out of trouble quite frankly, but trouble just has a way of walking through my door.  it’s always been that way really, since as far back as i can remember.  i’ve been on the short end of the stick it seems, trying to do right but always ending up wrong.  today was no different.  it was pouring outside, so hard it started pouring in, and as i mopped off my desk with saturday’s herald i heard someone call my name from across the room.

that sultry voice left me frozen in my tracks.  my pulse raced.  i began to sweat.  she sauntered over in my direction, her heels clicking and clacking against my floor as if she were hammering nails into my coffin.  i felt her behind me, her breath, a burning chill at the back of my neck.  she whispered in my ear…”i’ve got another assignment for you…”

on fashion / in fashion…

it doesn’t have to be labor day not to wear white. it doesn’t have to be halloween to wear a pair of ears. trendy doesn’t always mean new. old doesn’t always mean funky. does funky mean vintage? can vintage be new? what is fashion except everything that describes fashion?
chic. sexy. stylish. cutting-edge. flattering. fitting. basic. timeless. stunning. polished. retro. seasonal. racy. glamorous. fresh. classic. fabulous. definitive. beautiful. hip. hot. feminine. stylish. masculine. dressy. casual. flashy. luxurious. rich. extreme. showy. muted. colorful. brand-name. handmade. one-of-a-kind. attractive. alluring. natural. comfortable. influential. simple.
and so on.

last week’s assignment was about following directions- walking out the door in a certain way. this week’s adventure is about creating your own directions. whether you’re aware of it, truly do or do not care for it- fashion is not such a frivolous thing, considering that everyday you choose it, you wear it… considering that you create yourself, make yourself- walk out the door in your own unique way.

fashionssignment

everyday this week adorn yourself however fashionably (and ask yourself what that means…)
wear something (different every day) you own that has been left in the closet forgotten.
accessorize excessively, ridiculously, noticeably.
make-up a new make-up routine.
cut your hair, color your hair, paint your face.
bare more skin, bare your teeth. dare yourself, be brave.
do something, look something, try something, be something… adventurous.
(and ask yourself what is the difference between style and fashion…? )

seek to endure reactions and resist temptations to retreat to your typical look.
send adventureclubinteractive self-photography evidence of your fashionssignment experiences on a daily basis. (one submission that includes daily photographs will also be accepted.)  please include your thoughts in words with each photograph as documentation of your adventures in fashion.

please submit your fashionssignment photography via email: adventureclubinteractive@gmail.com

follow the directions.

“read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction.”

this week’s assignment involves following specific directions.  follow the following directions as accurately as possible one time each day for the remainder of the week.  if a cliff or a large body of water prevents you from continuing on, then please use your better judgement and decide to stop.  document what you find once you’ve reached your destination whether it’s a puddle or a pot of gold.  share your findings daily or complied in a gallery at the end of the week.

directions:

1.  walk out any door that separates you from “outside”.
2.  turn three full rotations in a counterclockwise direction.
2.  head north for one minute on foot.
3.  turn left if there is a left turn within vision.
