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.
