For this assignment, all you’ll need to do is pull out your phone and take a surrealist selfie! You do not need to create a master self portrait here or do any hands-on creation, simply snap a selfie with your phone. You can add digital touches to the image, but do not need to do so for full credit.
Your Surrealist “selfie” must take one of the following two approaches:Dream imagery – similar to what Dali does in his paintings where familiar, recognizable objects are juxtaposed in unusual or expected ways.Playing with our perception of reality – similar to what Magritte does in his paintings where he plays with scale, proportion, words and images, to make us question our perceptions of realityCaption your selfie with a clear and full explanation of the surrealist approach you took and how it relates to either Dali or Magritte.Upload your file as either a Word doc or .pdf file.
Here’s an example to get you thinking.
