What Evokes Change?

For this project I decided to create a question using the word change.  The question I chose to use was "What evokes change?".  I thought about answers to the question in order to come up with an idea for the art. One answer to what evokes change is wanting to fit in and be accepted.

 To show this, I decided to to use a caterpillar hanging off a branch getting ready to make a chrysalis. This shows the caterpillar getting ready to change. I also chose to put butterflies around the caterpillar to show what influences the caterpillar to change.  Someone said this idea reminded them of the ugly duckling which I agree with.

I wanted to use a material that I hadn't used before, and I picked paper because I thought it would look interesting. It ended up being a choice I regretted since it was challenging cutting out the markings on both the caterpillar and butterflies.  In addition to layering paper I used black marker to make details.  For the rest the project I used watercolor.  I like the way the project turned out overall, and think the time it took to cut and layer the paper was worth it. I also like the contrast between the colors blue, yellow, and orange.
