As Time Goes By

The Seedling

As Time Goes By was inspired by the effect of time on nature.

As Time Goes By is a project that includes four images that depict something that is affected by time. The task: “create a design that shows something reacting to time.” This process began with completing a process and documenting the steps, this is seen in “Apple” and “The Seedling.” “Apple” shows a full apple and then the last step before it is thrown away. “The Seedling” is showing the growing process, the first ‘seed’ starting darker and the final ‘flower’ lighter. “Aging Eyes” is a little different, and was drawn to show the process of time on eyes, comparing young and old, the older being contrasted with the blue pencil.
