I went to try having both YouTube Live and Periscope on at the same time. As periscope had more people watching, it was more interactive on periscope.
It was also quite different having to broadcast on two different platforms and also have my friends in front of me.
People could hear what I was doing in the room over the internet together with my friends.
Some of my friends were curious and even asked me what I was doing. At some points I was so comfortable being online that I was talking to people who were watching me like they were my friends. I also asked the internet what kind of eyeliner I should use today and someone replied.
I was on Youtube Live also and also learnt to use the basics of Livecast on my computer.
Overall, I realised that it was very interesting to broadcast at the same time on two platforms. At some point I felt like I was on Jennicam.
For the final showcase, I would like to go live on both periscope on my phone and Youtube from livecast and I was wondering if I could do it in an open space like the lounge in school where I can have people talking to me in the first space and also interacting with people in the third space. I find it a lot more spontaneous when I have people talking to me in the first space and also the third space.
In addition, I would first ask the third space on eg. what color of eye shadow I should use etc. Then, if I do not get a response I would ask the first space. In addition, I would also like to have random conversations with people in the first space while I do my make up.
I went to try a little trial for the final project and tried to choose the right title to ‘hook’ the audiences. Even though, I did it in the afternoon I had a few audiences from different countries.
I realised that it was better to not put the country where you come from because some people might not scroll to where Singapore is on the map and watch us.
In addition, the name ” Makeup Transformation” was quite an effective hook i realise as people knew what to expect when they are watching it.
On the other hand, I also realised that it was good for me to respond and talk to people commenting as it made me feel like there was a connection between the audience and me. Also, audiences liked it if i were to talk more when I performed. It was a very interesting experience. I felt that some of the conversation was similar to the ones we had when we were on adobe connect. It was random and very entertaining.
Overall, I think I did enjoyed it alot. Even though it was just a small preview to what I was going to do on the actual day.
I initially wanted to not talk to the audience but after that I realised that It does not really work. So I would do that on my actual performance also and I would like it if more people commented.
After doing the Jennicam review and having more ideas about the third space, I would like to do a live performance art of me doing make up but I’ll transform myself into different personalities. Eg. I could transform myself to a tom boy, or I could change my hair to purple by wearing a wig.
By using different makeup I can transform myself. Similarly it reminded me of how people can easily change how they look online as we did see in Grand Theft avatar. By changing how we look, we also sometimes do change the way we interact with people and how we act.
I would like to explore this idea. I think this would effectively comment on the internet of how we are able to embody so many different characters that we are in the third space and still be able to function in the first space. Additionally, it also questions our identity in this world.
In addition, I would like to use periscope to broadcast this. It would be interesting to also track how people comment as I change the way I look and seemingly appear as a different persona to others. Moreover, people might come to see my video when I have already did my makeup and think that I look a certain way. It will be fun to see people’s reaction and it is an interesting social experiment to see how the people in the third space interact with each other when looks is the changing factor.
“Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you’ve played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends.
The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card.” – cards against humanity
I think it will be fun to live streaming together with my friends playing together with me in the third space. In addition, because of the nature of the game, I can actually ask the audience or people tuning in to watch the live streaming to ‘participate’ too in the choice of the cards.
This gives the audience an experience that they can also participate in the live streaming.
