Different Locations. Different Definitions. Different Messages.
I've already discussed this picture in a previous blog posting, but this location illustrates and visualizes the transference of buses at a bus stop.
This location is at the Commerce bank at the Union. With this, our attempt was to illustrate the action of transferring money. We placed the 'r' on the chair to try to convey a human aspect, like the 'r' was the client receiving assistance with her (yep, the 'r' is going to be a female) bank account.
Again, along the lines of monetary transactions, this is a place where a whole lot of KU students transfer their hard-earned money. With the placement of these letters, we wanted the objects to act within their environment in a variety of ways. Some of these letters look like they're actually human figures using the ATM's and some, with the shiny, reflective surfaces and machinery-like structure, look like they're a part of the actual structure of the machine.
With this location, we attempted to illustrate a number of different definitions. For starters, the stairs at the Union are filled with constant movement and motion. Although it may not be exactly a definition of "transfer," we wanted to put into a visual perception the action-packed activity these stairs receive. Also, we brought in transfer students to illustrate yet another definition of our word. They're from a variety of different backgrounds (KCCC, Pitt, Texas A & M, and Zambia, Africa). Despite these differences, they've all transferred here to become the University of Kansas student body.
A well-known landmark on KU's campus, the Union Jayhawk. Yet again, different colleges, different backgrounds, personalities, majors, attitudes, and opinions all coming together to be a part of one student body. Rock Chalk.
Lastly, with our group photo, we aimed to illustrate the transference of a group of people, particularly in a public street setting. This time, instead of moving around the letters, we actually had the letters doing the transferring themselves. It's about time we put them to work.
