Final Side By Sides

Monday, November 18, 2013

Above are my two images from project 6. I had a difficult time with the program and honestly can say I am not too proud of my own work. The images up top are a fez from my recent Doctor Who Halloween costume, Jane Eyre from last Christmas and a small Thor figure which I've had for a long time. Unfortunately getting the face onto the sphere in SketchUp was not working and I had add it in post. Below is Perry the Playtipus that my little brother gave me for my birthday two years ago. The main difficulty I had with this project was the face that the program was suborn and creating smooth edges were nearly impossible for me. But I still think that at least came out recognizable so I'm content with the images.

Busting the Tube Response Questions

Monday, September 30, 2013

1. In Busting the Tube, Kate Horsfield talks about how the new ability to record portable video affected artists in a heavily controversial time. "Artists embraced video because it was new, had significant undeveloped aesthetic potential, and could be used as a medium for personal expression." with the digital age, hd video cameras and tablets in the present, could these new tools still being developed today have the same affect on the art community as it did then? Or is video art receding into the background, making way for more animated artistic exploration because of it's more mainstream and widespread availability? 
2. "Media activists saw handheld video equipment as a tool to document a new type of direct-from-the-scene reportage that was not manipulated, biased, or reshaped in any way to distort reality," in our age of quick and easy video manipulation, do activist videos have more weight because of special effects or are they seen as less important or true because the full or true video can easily be disguised?

Triptych Project 1

 All Hail the Mighty Glow Cloud
Statement: I assembled these images in Photoshop CS5 using images from Google and Tumblr as well as scans of The Zombie Tarot Deck. It took me a while to really grasp what I was going to put together. There are so many parts of me that I wanted to express but I couldn't figure out how to make it work. I put the pieces together slowly, one by one and finally came up with something I feel like expresses my inner self. Chaos. Chaos with no perceivable direction only following what feels right at the moment. I included icons from my favorite game, stars, tarot cars, hands, eyes, a reference to a favorite podcast and even a vintage dress design model. Although there is still a lot more going on in my brain at any moment in time this is what came out in this fleeting moment of design.
