In my final media project, I have selected human sensory organs as the tools to convey the theme of my project. These tools are human eyes, nose, mouth and hands. These images are all paper cutting from different magazines. The participant is asked to paste these images on a blank canvas having blindfolded eyes. The reason for blocking the sight of the participant was actually to make a clear distinction between sight and feeling.

All the activity has been done blindfolded. Therefore I can assure my viewers that the outcome of this project is the true depiction of the participant’s feelings about the image cuttings. The essence of the project was to feel the image and then paste it on the canvas as they want to see it. I must say that I am successful to achieve my expected outcomes as the resultant canvas is the perfect picture as I expected.

Sometimes there is no connection between content of different programs but still people follow them in a blindfolded manner.
The reason for using magazine cuttings as the tool in my media project is that I want to depict media in the form of the magazine. The technique of appropriation says that using one object to convey the message of other and in my
