Non-Traditional Portrait

1. Who did you choose to do a portrait of? Why did you choose that person?
My three brothers and myself, and I chose this photo becasue it means alot to me and the memory that we shared when we took the picture.
2. When brainstorming about this project how did you decide what would be the best materials to use to create it? Explain how your material choice impacted the look of your piece. Why was this so important. Explain.
At first I thought that my matericals would be checkers or chess pieces and then after thinking about the lines that I wanted I decided to go with paperclips to get smooth lines and get all the sizes that I wanted.
3. Describe the risks you took or that were involved in creating the project. What were the challenges you faced?
The risks I took involved was what I would use to make the paperclips stick to the paper and it posed a real challenge and then there was also how to get the pieces the shapes that I wanted which was very difficult.
4. How did your choices impact the look and feel of the piece? Did your choice of materials have any connection with the person you chose to represent? 
It had good contracts with my background, and it was simplistic despite how difficult it was to put together. No the materials do not have a connection with the people on the paper.
