DS106 Assignment:

Lots of things today have label warnings. Create warning labels for things that exist only in movies or your imagination.

The Process:

First, I found a picture of a lightsaber here. Then, I used photoshop to copy the photo onto a larger canvas and add text around the picture.

The Story:

Warning signs can be somewhat comical at times. I feel the way the warnings are worded often downplay the seriousness of the issue. So, I decided to make my own sign which would, perhaps slightly comically, convey a warning. So, the first thing I thought when I saw this assignment was ‘lightsaber’. Think about it: a blade of pure plasma which can cut through almost anything?! Highly trained Darth Maul was cut in half by a lightsaber! Although lightsabers are typically custom designed for the user and by the user, I imagined this is what the warning label would look like in the Owner’s Manuel of a lightsaber.
