Based on a previous project involving assembling small ink squares, each student scanned their favorite one that they felt was the most compelling compositionally.
Each of the sixteen students' chosen ink squares was enlarged and printed as 8x8".
Not knowing what other students' squares looked like, they were then tasked to make a sixteen-square grid incorporating each square into one unit.
While constructing the grid, they utilized the Gestalt Theory of Grouping to focus on continuity, rhythm, and closure. This project's challenge was assembling and ensuring each square fit with its' surroundings like a puzzle.
After explaining their thought process and decisions for the placement, their completed group project was displayed in the hallway.
