Transformations Project Introduction to Project Write about any of these:  What do you think it means to be transformed?

 Tell us about the role that you think change/ transformation plays in your life (i.e. work, school, personal, etc.)  Think about a time you experienced a personal transformation. When was this? What was the moment? How did it transform you? Focus of Project Where would you like to see change/transformation in your life? What would it look like? Homework: Photograph, draw, or find an image that represents your desired personal transformation. Final Product There are three components to this project. 1. Visual Representation: Create an image using Adobe Illustrator that incorporates geometric transformations and that is relevant to your personal transformation. You must include at least five transformations in the image. You can use pictures, images from the Internet, scanned images, freehand art, and Illustrator tools to create an image that is both mathematical and personal. The image may include elements that are not geometric transformations as well. 2. Artist Statement: Underneath your visual, write a clear and concise description of how the visual is connected to you personally. Thoughtfully explain the transformation you envisioned for your life, and how this visual representation depicts the transformation you would like to see. 3. Mathematical Description of Visual: Describe all of the transformations in your visual representation, using the correct terminology associated with the transformations. Be as specific as you can (e.g. the flower is rotated 100 degrees about the point in the center).
