The goal of this exercise is to vividly describe your exhibit for your intended reader and to practice lens analysis.
First, review my comments about the potential exhibits you found for Exercise 2.2. If you need to find a different exhibit, you might check these websites: adsoftheworld.com, coloribus.com, www.adforum.com.
Review the Visual Analysis handout. Then, in one paragraph, vividly describe your exhibit. Start by stating what your exhibit is and when and where it was used (e.g. “This movie poster for King Kong was first released in print in America in 1933.”) Make sure that you focus on elements like: central image, composition, organization, setting, size, colors, shading, and text.
Review the Lens Analysis handout. Then, in a new paragraph, argue briefly but clearly that some specific aspect or element of your exhibit can be considered a “monster” or “monstrous” according to Cohen.
