S t r at eg y: Cat Power is an A m erican singer-song writer and m usician know n for her incredible m odern folk style of singing. When I think of who Cat Power m ust be, judging only by the sound of her m usic, I think of a very artistic, bohe mian free spirit. When I picked her song The Moon as my subject for this project, my vision of her person along with the lyrics of the song greatly influenced the eclectic bold type and ephe m eral color palette I chose to use. The process of this design involves a co m bination of type and images printed on acetate sheets that were projected onto a wall by an overhead projector. I manually manipulated the materials and photographed the m fro m different angles, on and off the wall, to create unique co m positions.
