For this unit, we took a look at how artists use metaphors in art. We explored artworks, some humorous like the work of Banksy, and some serious like the work of Christian Marclay. The unit's objective was simply to explore the concept and determine one's way of addressing the metaphor.
Some student's selected to illustrate metaphors, while others decided to substitute certain images in order to create their own metaphors. Here are some of their works, most still in progress.
