This post is a little overdue, so I apologise for that and for rambling a little *stares directly into the sun and laughs crazily*
For my research this time around, I don’t really have much as I have for previous projects because I’ve been working on (and trying to improve) a similar style throughout this semester and the end of the Read more →
The last and final postcard was going to created to represent three-dimensionality. Of late, I had been working more and more with digital 3D techniques and I wanted one of these postcards to reflect that.
My initial idea for this design was to use one-point anamorphic. Anamorphic statues and designs are works that only reveal themselves to the viewer when standing Read more →
Seeing as to how animation would be the constant in all the designs, I needed to carry out some experimentations into how the moiré animation technique really worked. I have previous experience in digital and stop-motion animation and I found that this was useful in understanding the technique better and working faster.
There are mainly two aspects to the moiré method. The first Read more →
I spent some time thinking about the multidisciplinary pairings for my final four postcards and come up with the following. I will also cover the possible processes that I might be taking to complete each of the post cards. All the cards will share a starting point of moiré (slit) animation.
The first pairing would be sound and animation. I find Read more →
Now that I had my direction and descriptor, I had to decide in what ways I am going to push the brief and the series. I had already decided that all the postcards will share the same descriptor. As such, I had to figure out four unique ways to demonstrate various aspects of multidisciplinary. While digging further into the crossroads between interactivity and Read more →
Really liked the effect that paper marbling produces
For my research, I came across 3 artists which I drew my inspiration from. The first one was Sean Williams. He used words to form an image of a person which I thought was quite creative and apt for this project.
The second artist I referred to was Fran Efless. I thought it would Read more →
After making up my mind to create the design in the style of Optical Art, I carried out some research to look at artists that have come before me. I was paying attention to the black & white, figure-ground relationship in the compositions and looking at how I may incorporate typography into them. Here are some of the works that Read more →
Upon looking at the brief, I was rather lost at the beginning. I am usually not the kind of person to create a series of works based on just myself. I usually like creating pieces that involve my views and interactions with a particular subject matter. So when the brief called for the limelight to be placed on me, I Read more →
As i wanted to go with the theme of nature, after branches, the next element that came to my mind is water. Initially, i was wondering how should i make water interesting when it is just water?
I found really good references of water cut outs on pinterest. It reminded me that water could contain so many things! Fishes, seaweed, bubbles, Read more →
