This work shows the right side of my face, while the left side of my face is vanishing. The left side of my head has a rainbow bursting out of it, along with several little shapes and lines. The metaphor I chose to represent is “Let your mind wander.” This metaphor means allowing the mind to be free in thought and imagination. It means to have no boundaries when it comes to imagination. To  represent this, I chose a rainbow because a rainbow represents enlightenment and creation. 

I chose to make this piece an open composition to emphasize the idea of letting the mind wander. The word I chose to incorporate in this piece is create. The only way to create something new and innovative is by expanding the mind and thinking outside the box. Great things aren’t created by sticking to the status quo.

I incorporate several different shapes into this piece. They’re not “just shapes.” Shapes carry value and meaning, too. For example, the square shapes I used for my glasses carries more value, for the square represents the stabilization of energy. I also used several circles in this piece. Circles represents the personification of wholeness. Shape’s meanings add much more value to the interpretation of the work.

I purposely have the “Create” turned sideways to represent that the things one can imagine is not always going to be straightforward. It could be odd and go in a completely different direction. Normally, things we imagine are odd. In addition to the word “Create,” I added a period to the end of it to add more power to the word and emphasize its importance.


About schinnery1996

My name is Shanelle Chinnery and I study Digital Media and Animation at Alfred State College. It’s my third year and the last time this bio was updated was on my very first day of college. I had ended off my previous bio with my desire to grow throughout my years here in Alfred State and with my senior year on the horizon, I’m glad to say I’ve definitely grown since that day. With the variety of classes and mediums I’ve experienced during these three years, I’ve learned what grasps my attention and what strays it away. I came into college with an unclear direction of what I wanted to do in my field and to be quite honest, I’m still not sure what direction I’m going in, but I have a better idea. I enjoy the storytelling aspect of animation, but then again I also enjoy animating in 3D and would love to explore the possibility of voice acting. While I’m uncertain about the exact route of my future, I still take great pride in the how much I’ve changed, art wise. I’ve gained knowledge and experience in endless number of programs I never thought I’d be able to work around, I’ve grown accustomed to digital art rather than traditional pencil to paper art, and most importantly, I’m just a better artist in general. I could say that is my favorite achievement and I can’t wait to see what my future holds in this field.
