Introduction

The title of this blog, Art Force One x 1, represents a few different things. Art Force One is a take off of Air Force One, the aircraft that carries the president of the United States. I live in Washington DC, where art and politics coexist to create a dominant city of culture and creation. To quote Wikipedia, (though it is not one of the most prestigious resources to site, I believe it offers a good explanation) “Air Force One is a prominent symbol of American presidency and its power.”

Secondly, on a less meaningful note, Art Force One is the name of a pair of Nike High Top Dunks I own. In Visual Literacy class today, each student said what his/her medium of choice was. After thinking about the matter more, I discovered mine is sneakers. The shoes you wear are a way  to communicate visually, whether they say something about you or are used to effectively convey a message. What do you think of when you hear “communication?” You probably think of language. Language isn’t limited to speaking, it’s more than that. It’s about having a conversation, whether it be between your song and my ears, my eyes and your painting or your film and all my senses in perfect harmony.  “x 1,” or literally “by one” represents the fact that these posts are from my perspective. I am just one individual exploring the city, using the knowledge I already have to form opinions about the world around me. This blog is about what I chose to communicate,representing that each individual has the opportunity to create their own story, or their own message. How will you share your visions and understandings with the world?
