I got the idea by going on a random word generator and hitting the refresh button a couple of time and found the word map and everyone in the group agreed we should make a map. We then got to work on how to make it look better than a boring old two dimensional map. We ended up getting a big piece of cardboard as the base of the project and we then sketched out the river and the confluence with the Ohio river. We tried to make it three dimensional by using the green stuff fake plants are planted in. That turned out to be a mess of its own. To portray the themes of the work, we typed out the themes, printed them, then put them up as banners across our map. We decided where to put them based on where the themes were most prevalent. To make it look like normal terrain instead of a white map, we used green and brown spray paint to imitate dirt and grass. Also as a cool little insert, we made a little raft and glued it to the river. At the end of the project, I was wishing we had more time to work on it because it turned out to be very sloppy and wasn’t as nice as it could’ve been. Making it three dimensional was definitely the hardest part of this project. I personally thought that “Rappaccini’s Daughter” wasn’t the most interesting thing I have read actually far from it. When I was trying to read it, it was hard to focus on the task at hand. I occasionally caught myself looking around my room and all that while trying to read it. I can tell this is a rewrite of Adam and Eve just with different representations and with a little bit of a different style. I do agree with Hawthorne that man is the cause of his own problems. Many problems in society is due to religion, which was created by man. All of the strife in the Middle East is from religions fighting each other because they can’t agree how things should be done.
