Appropriation Assignment

To appropriate a work of art means to adopt, borrow or recycle some aspect of it, while turning it into something new through personalization and re-contextualization. For this assignment you will be appropriating an iconic, contemporary or historical image. This includes painting, sculpture, photography, as well as pop culture (movie posters, famous magazine and album covers, etc).  The image you choose to adapt must be recognizable. Your appropriation can be as literal or abstract as you like, as long as the reference is clear. Get creative!
