How does electricity work?

For this project we were given a text explaining how electricity goes from power plants to homes. We then were given a very tight deadline to challenged our creative process. I started by deciding on a color scheme to simplify the process: yellow and black. I then considered what my strengths were and what I could accomplish in short amounts of time. I decided to use my background in photography to be able to create very considered images fairly quickly. I took advantage of the yellow wall in my apartment and some spare cords and tape to create simple scenes illustrating the text. Painters tape was often used in my high school theatre productions to hold down lights and electric wiring, which gave me the idea to use it here.
