The Final Results

@ Kapilan Naidu

At the end of the project, I was really glad with the results and how I was able to create something digitally and reproduce it faithfully using analog media. The animation and the interactive experience of playing with the postcards really complemented the concept that I was trying to convey.

Thank you for being in my module and inspiring the class! I am following all the post and they are well done Please kindly share your knowledge with the class..we can all benefit from having your around!
Hi Ina! Thank you for your patience as well. It's been a little busy for me as it's my first semester in Interactive Media and I've been catching up and adjusting to the new environment. See you next week :D

@ Eureka!

For my final submission i used the theme “Paper Cranes” because cranes in Asian culture are used to symbolise happiness and eternal youth.

The first piece shows that I am youthful.

Cranes fly in a V-formation and I wanted to show a flock of birds flying with energy and youthfulness. It describes me because I don’t like to work Read more →

@ Sang Musang

Overall, the typographic portrait project is an amazing experience because I have lots of fun trying out stuff. I usually do digital imaging so for this project I’m trying to see whether I can do traditional methods as well. I also used to associate myself with Greek deities as a link to all my artworks and my love for theology and history.

@ 風鳴る翼

Final close up:

Branches// Finding me I can hide and may be hidden among the crowds at times. My heart may be hidden to. But if you look close enough, you will definitely find me in there, somewhere

Fishes in water// I feel like i am like fishes out of water, not fitting into the environment that i am in. However, at Read more →

Is it just me or the file size limit for each picture is getting smaller? It used to be 4mb and now it cannot be bigger than 2mb?
It is so much nice progress from you to follow over the last six weeks! I am definitely keeping track record and am appreciative for your weekly posts on your cutout series and on design solutions! Please here are few 'cosmetic' suggestions: 1) in this post the image on the wall ( 2d corridor :) should be the one at the very end of the post :) I like the top image ( animated!) as well as how you have documented the rest by the concrete wall For Follow-up images are great as stand alone. But please consider to include for the each stand alone image corresponding caption- what was the sentence for each image:" My name is ...and I am..." As one can not read the tag lines off the photo taken.

My name is Denise and I’m Peranakan

I paired the baba (man) with a mata puteh (oriental white eye) to mimic the sentiment of old Singapore. Back in the day, these birds were admired for its singing quality/buka and the price  to appreciate a songbird’s chirp at home could range from $30-500.

The pairing of the Read more →

Nice presentation..please consider -make the featured landscape image bigger -do not include photo from the critique and the wall in 2D :) as it is not as impressive due to poor lighting conditions. -include caption or title from the assigned brief: "my name is...and i am..." :) This is very important to finalize presentation

Sem 2 AKA Return of the TRA$Hbin

My final series may be the most confusing thing cause a sudden change in ideas resulted in me dropping quite a few supposed “finals” and creating new “finals” on the spot. Anyway, I guess its for the better that I dropped the prostitute series since it fits better with the Read more →

I enjoyed your themes of thinking such as: "the patterns are the names... ...materials imitate type.. have type imitate materials too” Even though you have accumulated a lot of ephemera you have reduced the risk of inconsistencies or ambiguity! Your style appropriated from Craig Atkinson’s cut-&-paste collage method is an excellent choice. As well as putting brief upside down and taking the risk of not making silk presentation..I like the balance at the end...and sometime you can keep some make up too...just to make it more palatable for the masses – or not! Over the summer please try to take some time to look into your choice of styles origins- it would be useful to look -into Dada movement, Punk, Marcel Duchamp, Fluxus, John Cage and his Zen and I-Ching inspired work methods- that used combinations of chance operation in art - where one has to accept the risks as results of the process.

@ Birdkeeper Lea

For my final, I decided to go with the idea of the jobs/careers that I have taken up in a parallel world. I thought that it would be more interesting and whimsical as compared to simply creating works that spoke directly about my personality. The jobs I created hint not only to my interests but also to my character as Read more →

Lea great presentation- excellent drawings - excellent description of your process and final works. However, I would remove the very top photo of the final display in 2D corridor as it is not good documentation. The reason the photo is taken in a dark space and under the yellow light..we can not see anything from that image. We also can not read from your final photo any of the statements. Would it be possible to include captions with those statements under each of the original drawings? We can revisit this in class if you are not clear...:)
Please use your black and white larger images as a feature image for this post :) it would look nicer..:) do not use the final layout in 2D area- as it is not lit properly

These are my finalised works!

This is an overall view of all my four pieces.

My name is… and I am a triplet.

An introduction to myself would be a fun fact, and that is that I am a triplet. Hence, the number three is drawn. In the number, there are words from movies, games, traits, activities Read more →

You really made us understand your motivation, behaviours and wishes in this assignment! You clustered your ideas nicely based not only on your concepts but also as inspired by style and artists you have researched Here are some simple edits: -Please upload your thumbnails to appear bigger on his page. Even though they are linked to larger image- it would be more straightforward to have them bigger. - the description is good for each image but what is missing is the main caption: "My name is...and I am.." We have to read entire description to get the concept... - make the post images bigger and bolder! they are beautiful! - at the first occasion -SCAN your final works drawings at 300 dpi you can use it for your ZINE edit (Final Project)
one more thing to add: Please include featured image for each post :)

excellent works! please consider for make-up of this OSS page archive: - delete very top out of focus photo from the 2D wall installation in adm corridor- no need for that image as the bellow images are much better! -include one sentence that will summarize your project -include Caption or Title for each image: "My name is... and I am..."
also please use better high res image for your featured image:) original digital file would be better than photo taken in 2d area
