Do the Twist: What else do we have to do?
Chubby Checker's, "The Twist," is considered to be the most popular pop song of all time. I have no idea why. The lyrics contain no profound or moving messages and the music is a three chord melody. But somehow it captured the all the generations that have listened to it. So we decided to twist. What else do we have to do now that we are self quarantining?

Photography and music have a lot in common. Both have to intrigue the viewer/listener with something new and interesting so that they keep on looking or listening. Yet on the other side they still have to appeal to the audience's expectancy of beauty, harmony and patterns. Photography and music also both give the audience the space to interpret the artwork with their own life experiences. This week we are marrying these two art forms by shooting a photo inspired by a line from a song. You can choose to literally recreate the lyrics into visual form or to shoot a photo that represents the emotions you feel when you hear the words of the song.
