I decided to abandoned one of my previously discussed direction of: “Destruction from the point of view of a computer algorithm is data-moshing.” as I was running out of time to complete the series. I realized that I had quite a bit of experimentation and testing that had not been done to create a work that I would be satisfied with. Read more →
For this composition, I will be tackling the idea of: “Chaos from the point of view of a computer algorithm is random generation.”
Random Generation is a computational algorithm designed to generate a sequence of numbers or symbols that can not be reasonably predicted better than by random chance. The success of a random generation algorithm is determined by the number of Read more →
For the second idea, I was extremely excited to use the Fleen software that I had recently discovered. What made this all the more special was that this software was created by a fellow artist. The program was written with the sole intention of making art.
The program is based on an algorithm that begins with a root shape. This shape is Read more →
Here are some thumbnails of the creation process. I have documented the different stages, from the start to the finish. The different sorting results were imported into Photoshop and composited together. I also made the image black and white to resolve the color differences between my source images. I also felt that the series would look more cohesive if all the Read more →
While working on the series, I consulted Ina to see if I could work on a larger scale. I wanted to have the works be detailed and intricate and thought that the larger size will be able to do justice to the compositions. I decided that working on A3 for my final works would be an ideal size. With this decided, Read more →
Personal Fears that are seemingly rational (or are they really)
Tailored to an individual’s personality and disposition
Fear from the point of view of a casanova is to fall in love/lose his heart
Fear from the point of view of a performer is stage fright/to be eaten alive by his audience
Fear from the point of view of a kind is to be Read more →
Mostly pictures of the process~
The paper cuts was the easy part, and the first things I completed. Also because I need the silhouette to know which part of the city I want for it to show through~
Then, starting on the illustrations.. It looked intimidating but… well, it was. @@
But I’d like to think it Read more →
Extra because about none of this shows up in my final work X”D
Some sort of very simple animation sequence key-frames because I did briefly consider animating my project for a bit.. Probably over ambitious as later confirmed >A<
Because I was using pen and watercolor, and also because I am always influenced by music videos due to interest and past experiences… I Read more →
From the beginning:
The initial brainstorming for this project worked out quite well for me.
Although I was a bit apprehensive that the “city” might be an overdone concept, I was inevitably drawn to the idea due to I think it’s significance to me, personally… Having migrated when I was younger and thereafter always wanting to Read more →
At a later stage in the project, I wanted a splash of Korean words to further emphasise my main subject which are K-Pop idols.
This is an example of how my pieces would look like. I want to use Korean to describe the photo instead of English.
This is another example of how I would like Read more →
