Can anyone out there think of some artists that work in a similiar style
to Cindy Sherman? I am looking for artists who transform their own
bodies, specifically. I am going to include a disscussion of these
artists in a unit lesson plan called Transformation.
In the first lesson the kids will be transforming
themselves in the form of a polaroid of themselves blown up several times
on a photocopy machine. They will then take their blown up image and
transform themselves into anything they want to be; for example a pirate,
a famous person from the past or present, an alien etc. Any suggestions
or comments would be greatly appreciated.
