Experience 2: Video Walk

For this video walk assignment, I initially tried playing with overlaying patterns to distort the surfaces encountered during the walk. These patterns eventually turned into ways for me to use lines to distort the perspective of the volumes and planes of the objects in the room.

This led me to the idea of creating a digitally distorted reality, where everything becomes extended or flattened. I also added in sound effects to complete the experience.


This is how I would set up 1, 10, 100 and 1000 lightbulbs in a cubic space:


These arrangements follow the extension from a point in space, to a line, to a plane and finally to a volume.

My arrangements are also organized in a grid system, whereby the lightbulbs are regularly spaced from one another and reflects the planes of the interior space itself. In the 100 and 1000 examples, I also find that there is a spatial tension within the arrangements because the separated clusters of lightbulbs share strong similar visual traits to one another.

I think that the way I have arranged the lightbulbs also emphasize the centralized form, and hence presents very stable and dominating visual.
