I’ve decided to focus on “Life on Europa” as my project as it includes both space and DNA related thingy (sort of).
After doing some research about Europa and reading about the news NASA recently released which, created quite a hype among scientist, I’ve decided to do a short abstract film based on it.

Last week’s consultation directed me to zero in on the focus of making something more modular. Placement of bits and pieces and visuals and crafts can lead to different end results in creating sound.
In my first prototype( in progress) outlined in my previous post, my process shows that the assemblage could be in a way a tribute to the birth Read more →

For a start, some of the keywords that I rooted for wanted to be a huge part of my FYP.
From the keywords, I branched out to several more words for the quality that I want in my final work.
*3 keyword definitions from dictionary.com. The rest annotations came from me.
Since starting my research, I’ve found some great DIY videos on Read more →

Link, Zelda, and the Totalitarian State
BeverlyTuesday, Sep 13, 2016 - 03:01:21 am
Alright, not really. Zelda’s not present. I just made this post (first post of many like these) to feature some of the articles I have been reading to bring me closer to a concrete idea.

I got interested in working with analogue and converting to a digital output through one of the work (Cinema Redux) by Bredan Dawes at the Big Bang Data exhibition in the Art Science Musuem. The idea of using a huge collection of data to translate an overall emotion and to provide another point of view that creates a dialogue with the Read more →
