Today is mid point review.After my presentation Shiye,Sicong ,Yutong and Jonathan began to discussed my work,and I can’t talk during they were discussing.Indeed,it is difficult that you can’t say any thing for yourself when other people discuss,misunderstand and feedback about your work.
But I got some valuable things.At first,I was worry about if other people know my work is fake,not really interactive with dancer they will feel disappointed. Surprisingly,they don’t think it is important.Then they began to discuss about is that important for a performance. Sicong said audience will prefer real interaction,if they find out it just fake they will disappointed.Moreover,it will easy to make mistake without interaction.But other peoples disagree,because the result is completely same not matter it is interactive or not.Especially in the performance,actor can practice for thousands time to complete match the animation.They can still do it perfect without interaction,like my work. Shiye think real interaction can reduce mistake,more like a tool to help their performance.However,Jonathan said real interaction some time not perfect as fake one.Because actor need to do accurate action interactive with animation,if not the interactive effect will not show up.By contrast,fake interaction is more easy,the animation will continue play that actor performance accurate or not.
It was my first time think about is that important a performance interactive or not.I think both of them are feasible,the result is same.Audience don’t know it is interactive or not.But interaction help performance reduce their mistake,make them easy to be successful.
The fourth time research paper tutorial is with Jane.She had read my research paper draft before.She think my draft is too general,the idea is not critical enough.Thus she suggested me stop writing theory,start to investigate example.I showed some example I had found,she think is good.So I will going to analyze “Voice tunnel”and “Which is your brass voice”.She also recommended some book to me.She think my theory is connect with chance of aesthetics.
This article is recommended by Ed.These are some notes and highlight I type on computer during I read this article.
After finished this article,I changed some of my thought.I completely agree that Duchamp said whatever adjective of the artwork,art still is art,not matter it is good or not.In some extent,aesthetic of art is determine by audience.The creative act is not only complete by artist,same as the interactive theory,audience’s engagement and contribute is part of the work.So part of judgement of art is in audience’s hands.Because they are receiver,so the feedback is completed by them.
Because lack of time,we delete later parts of this performance,change to a simple animation which prefer visual effect than story.Because the animation of letter is monotonous.So I want to use some geometric figure to enrich animation.Appearance and variation of geometric figure will base on the music melody.In the second part,dancer will lay down,project his image on the wall that imply his inner emotion.His image will dance to express his anger and fear.In the end,dancer will stand up and overlap with his image which mean he clam down and back to real world.
Similar as before,I use Photoshop to draw key frames,then use AE to make animation.
This is anticipated effect :
At the same time,Jake went to green screen studio to record some material of Lin’s dance.
We will try to project a formal one later.
In research of digital information the installation ‘for those who see’ created by Daniel Schulze shows the beauty of the unseen. The impulse of sound creates a vortex air ring‚ invisible, as the sound itself. Only fog is demonstrating this aesthetic phenomenon. Individually released to the air, our visual perception connects the single rings to patterns, surfaces or bodies, before they slowly dissolving. These could be viewed as a whole picture or an individual fragment – inviting one to contemplate and wonder.
I like these kinds of visible those unseen phenomenon.They present the invisible world to us,those aesthetics are fascinating.
