Assignment:              GROUP PROJECT: Create a collage on cardboard 2x2ft minimum (it does not necessarily have to be 2D, it can be a box, a sphere or a pyramid) inspired by Blade Runner in general, and especially by Roy Batty’s monologue “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.” (Portrayed by Rutger Hauer BRING it to class and present it in public.

UPLOAD the creative process and finished result to your blogs, with high quality images.

One member from each group will upload a PDF with photos, texts, inspiration, anything relevant to the Collage Project (for archival purposes) on Blackboard. Just ONE per group. You have until MIDNIGHT of the day of the presentation, so you can include photos of the presentation and any feedback you receive from any of your peers.  

BLOG: besides the notes on the movie, do a short research on Philip K. Dick and his importance in SciFi literature and film.
