In regards to this, I researched on Create Adobe and came across free royalty free images. I feel this is important to consider in regards to avoiding infringing on copyright laws and legislation. This is an open archive of information sources that allows visitors to use imagery free of use.

An idea I come across I would like to explore is the below. In consideration however, when I think about the fact the images are to have negative connotations I feel this image may seem to mock the seriousness of the visuals. I feel I therefore need to be sensitive in my exploration of the image and how I appropriate this through my own idea.

My next step will be to explore images from the media I can use for my appropriation. I am aiming to complete two submissions for the project itself.

Key things to consider

  • negative image- negative connotations presented to the viewer- research recent media and publications

  • continuously published in the media- common images often presented
