Idat 307: A simple Video

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:

Idat 307: It has a name!!

I have decided on the name of my piece and it is………. loMOTION!!!!!

Idat 307: All Complete!!!

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*

Idat 307: Getting Lomoed

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:

Hour One

Hour Two

Hour Three

Hour Four

Hour Five

Hour Six

Hour Seven

My next task is to add them to the my complete web cam model in flash and code in the TweenMax.as file 🙂

FYP: Idea that I am sticking with

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

Idat 307: Photo taking

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.
