Project Documentation

My poem was Penelope. It felt kinda whimsical, and kind of surreal, yet playful.

I then made a mind map. I’ll post pics here for now as proof, but the pictures were crappy, so I’m gonna put up a better one later on today

Adjectives: Touchy, Tricky, All-seeing, Unlucky in Love

Feeling: Love, Loathing

Old-timey: Virgin, Fairy Tale, Classic, Victorian

From this, I decided to create a surreal, whimsical world. My space is literally topsy turvy, and there are weird shapes everywhere, as well as fog.

Here’s the mood board:

Here’s a pic of my project. I wanted a weird, surreal world. It’s simple, but whimsical in a way.



Project 1: External Eye

This project was about creating my interpretation of  The External Eye. After reading about how the eye works from Margaret Livingstone’s Biology of Seeing, I decided to create an animation of  the signals traveling from the eyes to the brain. Using After Effects, I created shapes,text, and effects, along with some external stock art, to show how images get to the brain.
