Assignment 3

Explore communicating emotions at the extremes of realistic and abstract forms of representation. Make or create two "things" which elicit a similar empathetic emotional response. One should be very realistic or literal in nature. The other should be quite abstract. What the "things" are is up to you. They need not be in the same medium, but could be. Think about how the empathetic or emotional concept is embodied in each representation and which might be more effective at eliciting the desired response in someone else.
