Just been looking are the web, well mainly YouTube and got some really interesting and moving videos, that involve the PostSecret postcards, or has been created fro the project:
I have made this video f the installation being interactive with. I would have loved to have displayed this on a project and had it going on for a whole day, for many people to interact with it, I was just unable to found a suitable place, with the little time I had 😦
This video is just to give an idea of what the piece is:
I have decided on the name of my piece and it is………. loMOTION!!!!!
A couple of weeks ago, I had completed the prototype of my 4D project ( I was using lomography photographs off the Internet at the time – find below in earlier blog). But today, I was able to add my 7 photographs of my own 🙂
I am really pleased with the result and I feel the TweenMax.as really has made my piece work smoothly and made the photos blur into each other in a very lomography effect way.
Here is a link to the final swf. *You will need a webcam for it to run*
Here are the 7 photographs, that were taken every hour, plus a few others, (as I just wanted to practice lomoing photos up). I have edited them in Photoshop, to give them the Lomography effect, as sadly I was unable to receive a film for the Holga 120GN Camera in time. I am still pleased with the results:
My next task is to add them to the my complete web cam model in flash and code in the TweenMax.as file 🙂
Inspired by Postsecret, with the way it brings emotion and image together, and my love for the photobooth, i am wanting to set up a photobooth- that takes photos of people and their emotion or secret and display them as a projection of a mosaic made up of the images.
From further thinking this idea, i thought maybe it would be good to ask the users to record a 30 second video telling their secret and then the projection mosaic could be made up of the videos of the lips. What would add a interesting factor to the piece would be, if that the on going viewers would have to lip read, as i would have no sound to the piece. Keeping the secrets still under-wrapped but still being displayed.
This lip idea is very rocky horror and also links with the saying “my lips are sealed”
some lips images, for inspiration:
I think that Lily Allen has a really interesting tattoo, that represents secret and interacts with the lips with out having to make a sound
I went to the Jazz and Blues Festival on the Barbican in Plymouth yesterday and I took a few snaps. I made sure I took at photograph, a hour from the first one, till I have my 7 photographs. Then I started to just over photographs, that I thought I would place on my blog, as I feel they are quiet nice snaps.
