This assignment involves using two and three photographs to form one idea, one concept, one piece of artwork.  You will need to carefully create and/or choose first two and then three images that when presented as one; form a new and (hopefully) stronger statement.


You will want to consider when mixing the images if the multiple images strengthen each other.  Is the statement cohesive?  Is the “sum of the whole greater than the value of the individual parts”.


Diptychs and triptychs can be successful on many levels and for many reasons.  I urge you to carefully develop the concept and to tune the visual compatibility so that the two images work inseparably together.  The assignment will be critiqued primarily on conceptual, aesthetic, and technical quality.


Turn in two works, one diptych and one triptych.
