Metaphor and Cliche

What makes an image cliché?

An image becomes cliché when it is overused to a point that it is no longer noticeable as an original idea or concept.

What is a metaphor?

A metaphor is statement that compares a situation to an example that is not normally associated in the same context.

How does it function?

A metaphor functions by exaggerating a regular a situation to make a point with humor or sarcasm.  i.e. I’m as hungry as a horse, stubborn as a mule.

Why is it important?

I think metaphors and cliché’s are important because they add to the creativity of the English language.

DigiHollywood – 14 images contact

contact sheet original images

My concept for this project was pretty simple.  I thought about how movie stars of today and the past were worshipped and treated as if they were greater than the rest of the public.  I wanted to distort their images without total abusing the head shots that were captured many years ago.  Some of the images I created became more distorted than others only because I had no real direction for each individual image.  I then wanted to make them appear to be a series of photos that may have been in a special edition of Life magazine if they had they desire and technology to alter an image back then.  I imagined the pieces to be special fold outs of the magazine and marketed as collectables, similar to baseball cards in early editions of Sports Illustrated.  The text DigiHollywood seemed like a well fitting combination of the past and present in one word.

Many of you seemed to enjoy guessing who each picture was of, here is the list of the performers.

Audrey Hepburn
Ava Gardner
Bing Crosby
Cary Grant
Danny Kaye
Elizabeth Taylor
Fred Astaire
Gene Kelly
Finger Rogers
Ingrid Bergman
James Stewart
Lauren Bacall
Marilyn Monroe
Marlon Brando
