Continuing the research in my previous post, we were asked to dance and move our creature’s movement! For my, it would be my anaNEMOfish (clown fish).
My movement was ‘fluid’ and it can move in any direction (except backwards). As the Nemo move and dance around the sea anemone, I imagine the movement to be circular and random in any direction. At the same time, the Nemo can swim up and down as well.
Then for my movement sketch, I drew it in random circular and wavy shapes. The light blue represents the fish swims at a certain level, then dark blue represents it swimming down (deeper) while the light green is the opposite (swim up).
Next we were required to visualise and produce our movement by sculpting mahjong paper. My paper sculptor is shaped based on the sketch. The closeness of the paper shows that the Nemo moves around quite fast. In reality, the speed is really depend on each species and size 😀
It was a surprisingly a refreshing session 😀
So at first I brainstormed all the possible job that I am interested to do.
With all the random and scattered list, I narrowed down into (not based on any particular order):
Being a fan of Dan Brown’s novels, I want to be Robert Langdon, a professor of symbology and go for many adventures. He is someone who interpreting iconology, deciphering symbols and code.
I first thought that the term for the job is ‘symbologist’ but it appeared that no such vocabulary in the dictionary. Well, I can be him.
I researched and looked for various symbol that can be modified to letters of my name. Also thumbnailed some possible composition like:
putting my initial in between random symbols
editing famous historical artefact with symbols and add my initial to it.
E.g. the tablet in the film Night at The Museum
The gate to an ancient city with my initial
Cemetery or graveyard or mummy case with my initial
Out of all four, the one I want to made is honestly the last one. Until I realised that it feels like preparing my own grave (literally)………
So I decided to pause working on this job……… for good.
Another job inspired by novels, I want to be an adventurer or traveler. Things like weird places, new findings, ancient plants, extinct animals are somehow appealing to me.
Identical with different modes of transportation to travel, I listed down possible transports. I also drafted ‘NAT’ using different lines related to water, air and soil transportation (train, ship, airplane). Decided the background ca be a world map, and the lines can be red showing the path or plan of a journey.
However I did not pursue this composition further as I found more interesting ideas coming up for another job.
Well, I can’t help to want to be one. Especially Elphaba of the Wicked, somehow I am weirdly attracted to her character. (?)
Not the movie Avatar. It’s the animated television series Avatar: The Legend of Aang. The bender for fire, water, wind, earth. Control the balance of the Earth. Another one I can’t let go…
TV Show Winner
Participating and winning amazing TV shows like Amazing Race, Fear Factor, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? are some of my childhood dream I cannot say no to. Spent time to watch them routinely weekly. So nostalgic.
Extreme Sport Athlete
Extreme sports like cave diving, sky diving etc is another things that attracted me. But reflecting on the reality, I just hope I could do them at least once before I die.
Marine Mammal Trainer
Free Willy! I have been liking marine mammal especially dolphin since little, being their trainer seems fun.
Here is another list after browsing through the internet, looking for weird and unusual job.
Iceberg mover. Might have save Titanic. Who knows?
Snake milker. Aaaaaaa so interesting I cannot! I like how a snake’s skin feels.
Fortune cookie writer. It’s all a lie.
Crime scene investigator or detective.
Swordsman. Zoro of the anime One Piece. Sword Art Online.
Chocolatier. Childhood game and dream job.
Ghost Hunter. Another one inspired by childhood movie.
Origami artist and paper sculptor.
For origami artist, I planned to fold real origami, paste it on paper and take photo of it. After consultation (thanks Shirley) an interesting idea was to hang it instead of pasting it. Then, the paper can use texturised Japanese origami paper with plain background to contrast the elements.
As for the paper sculptor (initially was an alternative for the origami artist), there are so many different type of paper sculpt.
I planned to create layers of white paper with the shape of NAT. And I did the draft.
However I decided to not do it for the real thing as it feels too plain and I could not find a nice composition other than a plain classic one.
Later on the options evolved and I ended up having these as the finalised ones:
