@ Natasya Adistana

Hi guys! Here is the process of my handmade emo lines!

1. LOVE – Obsession

I used pieces of cut foam, put it under the paper and use the roller with thin ink to create the pattern. (image 1-4) I divided the paper into five parts and roll it with various rolling movement and ink content, e.g. roll the roller vertically/ horizontally/ diagonally with Read more →
oh my gosh! such an eclectic and  interesting methods. you are so so courageous! well done. You have incorporated elements from different material sources and managed to express a diverse array of ideas! Please keep the raw files in your hard copy journal  as a vocabulary or even to consider as a style in future projects.
Thanks Ina! Ofc I am keeping all the hard copy:)

Hi guys! So up there is my final lines for our 2D Project 1 – My Line is Emo 😀

Let’s briefly go through them one by one!

1. LOVE – Obsession

This line was inspired by Andy Warhol’s Shadows where he painted a single image 102 times with various light and shadow.

The repetitiveness of the image make me Read more →

wow! can really see all the effort put into each and every line!!! i think i particularly love your "Joy" series and especially the "complete"... really makes me feel complete! :P ehhehe
Thanks Bao! :D Hahahaaa You are not heartless so confirm always complete one! Incomplete bao is only when got no fillings :p
It would be nice to see the final lines really huge- like 15 m by 2m!  But unfortunately, we can not do that. My favorite is Hopelessness. All of your lines sit well together in spite that eclecticism of the mark making techniques.

Thank you! I also like Hopelessness! Even though the process can be considered simple and fast, the result of it after adjusting the level is really distinct and looks like interesting pieces of glass :D

Finalising My 18 Lines




=> Monoprint

The black and white lines remind me of wrinkles that form on one’s forehead as they furrowed their eyebrows in jealousy. The lines are also very harsh and look as if paint was smeared on the wall using hands, indicating a form of desperation.

2. Rage

==> Hand drawn line on given template

The lines that mercilessly cross each Read more →

I have learnt a lot through this assignment especially on how to create marks using different techniques. Now I finally Read more →

so cute the last pic hahaha super nice work esp the hand made ones! the emotions are really well represented
Loveeee the milk and detergent one:')) Really naiseee~
Final design choices for the lines are excellent. Is it possible to have your digital lines uploaded as a larger image ? make sure you check Link to > media file..this will ensure that image in your post opens big in a separate floating window... It would allow us to enjoy complex art-work even more :)

Thanks Ina! I was having doubt about my work after seeing everyone's incredible lines. Definitely a confidence boost! I will update the digital lines shortly.

you should be very confident! you really think well in shapes and understand spatial relationships (harmony balance) next project you have to think in images (metaphor, paradox, parody, personification...anthropomorphism..etc)

Geometric vs. Organic Lines

Often, people mention that the world is black and white, and similarly, emotions through lines could have two derivatives, straight or organic. However, just like how that grey areas exist as well, the simple two derivative lines could be manipulated to create various patterns that explore the human condition. Through this project, I largely explored the differing Read more →

before i could even read ur write up, i can already see and feel the influence from some of those artists! so nicely done justinneeeee
hahaha thank you filzahhh! :D
Damn girl, devastation and restricted particularly stood out for me!! :)))) and alienated too... Cool concept of the artists <3 loved the overall  hehe
Love the scale and the way you made it easy for us to see the details of the final emotive lines. You have shown consistency in design thinking. You have justified the use of  scanning and manipulation with media. The final image of the print file ( the one with all of the lines) could be opening in a separate window- so we can see more of it. This could be done by selecting "link to media" when uploading  image. Please move to next project  about movies and replace the mark making with image making :) you will need to think in images.

This is Exasperation. It’s frayed apart and is a visual representation of how one would feel under intense annoyance.

This is Irritation. I felt like Irritation starts with one starting point and just grows more and more wild from there. Which is seen in the picture

This is Vengeance. As a more methodical kind of anger, there is a Read more →

nice work king!! esp the isolation and optimism
It would be awesome to see the lines bigger in this post :)  We could see the invisible interaction between elements and white spaces - that we can not see in the hard copy...only through the super eye of the scanner and digital vision we can dwell on detail. When you click on the image it can appear bigger and  in the floating window. In order to get that you need to  check Link >Media File when uploading... I can explain in class.
All of your line are in the perfect harmony!

love how you linked your thumbnails to larger floating windows so we can see the details- perfect! you have presented many varied techniques  and successfully communicated emotions. It is good that you have recorded your  large exploratory mono- prints.
please include featured image into post :)

The lines are beautiful! Various techniques have been successfully explored. Please improve on OSS layout: to identify styles - and various treatments consider to separate your lines - and ensure that one can preview them as bigger image. To do that - when uploading your images - ensure that you have checked "link to media" (located on the right hand side of the post) ; This would allow you to see the images larger in the floating window. It is hard to separate lines as well as emotions from each other. Ideally each category should have the subcategory: for example Anger:  could be divided into Torment, Rage, Jealousy. Carefully arrange them as they will enhance each other more prominently.
For the mark making tools - please make selection from the google drive and upload..It is hard to search for your images on the Google drive. Ensure the images are large scale!!!
Ok I'll try to work on it! Thanks for the feedback!

@ danielle koh

Hello! For this project, I’ve tried a few techniques. The first one would be monoprinting which contributed significantly in creating the lines. They were produced digitally after scanning the prints.

After scanning the prints, they look like these! The trashbag seen above made the print shown in the picture below (on the top right corner).

other prints are created by taping scotch Read more →

I have enjoyed well organized and finalized the review of your process; you have combined your resources and artists with drawing successfully, resulting in a lively series of forms - in which emotion and line are fully integrated. Start working on project 2!
