After seeing the results for the first time, I was very surprised to have received a perfect score (of zero). It was pretty easy aligning all the colors, this could be due to having glasses which give me an additional advantage over others. It took about 5-8 minutes, not that long. My eyes would kind of distort the colors if I looked for too long. I also found myself kind of zoning out at times as well. I wonder what I would have scores without my glasses on.
I enjoyed doing this project, nothing i’ve done before. I definitely think the distorted picture is the best of the bunch just because of how unique and mystical it is. Being able to morph and create the scanned image adds another layer of creativity to a user’s work and is a fun activity to take part in. I wen’t with a simple cyanotype with just 4 geographical shapes, but went for a really abstract and complex distorted image. I like the thought of it being simple yet complex at the same time. Okay, like the images we shot for the emotional line project and other previous animation projects you create a video by taking multiple frames. This is exactly what the scanner does to take a full image of the cyanotype. While we move the cloth around each image is different, distorting the image entirely. I am looking forward to creating more projects like these in the future!
Here is my Emotional Line GIF. Definitely a fun project to accomplish, took forever though. Can’t wait to try some more projects like this!
In this animation, by Jake Fried, he creates a eye twisting project that continuously boggles my mind. I like the way he manages to move pieces of art across the canvas and still manage to add/remove other additions to the animation. I also like what seems to be a wall used as a canvas for this project as well. These animations Mr. Fried creates are quite the masterpiece and take a lot of time to complete. The animation linked above has over 2,000 frames! That is extremely high compared to the ones we are currently doing that only require a max of 100. I’m glad I was present in class today to learn and watch all about Mr. Fried’s work.
Here’s a gif of my falling leaf project.
I like doing these types of drawings because, the end results always surprise me. These drawings are fun to complete and are not hard at all. I believe that the rules are find and that practice will make these a lot easier in the future.
If I were able to fix anything in this gif, I would make the ball fly through the first window (left) then out the second window (right).
