In today’s tutorial,I showed what have I done in these few weeks. I know Jonathan was mad at me because of my low amount of physical works. And my english is regressing after only speak Chinese for few weeks. Some ideas can not explain clear. However,I completely agree write post everyday in this two weeks,I think it will help me to push me keep doing things.
Firstly,I will pay more attention to the form of sentence and have double copy of my own work. And I also misunderstood the meaning of ‘subject’ of feedback of unit 1 assignment. I will pay more attention on the detail of my work. Because every detail must have a connective and indispensable meaning.
Then,for current experiments which project animation on body,help me to figure out what kinds of perception will stimulate through different images. Next I will do more tests that project different things on people’s body,maybe find different people as experiencer. Because it will arouse different feeling for different people even it is same thing. Such as project ladybird on arm,for some people will feel itch,but for some people who love insect may feel delightful or exciting.
Besides,the authenticity of animation or image will influence experiencer to arouse perception. Like delightful,it is easy to arouse this feeling even the image look false. But like fear,it need to make experiencer to be conscious of this is happening real. Like this work:
Even this animation is 3D style,but still can arouse a fear of fall down. My authenticity means it need to be logical,it need to be something they believe. So I will keep testing this.
About the final project idea,Jonathan tell me those is difficult to achieve because of the shadow created by projector. So I need to change another form or find the solution. Then I ask my friend who is learning Digital Theatre. He recommended me a material tracing paper. He said I can try to use this material instead board because it have a good transmittance. He show me some photo of their project which use tracing paper.
So I can place the projector out of the space, the video project on tracing paper,it may project a weak shadow of audience,maybe see nothing. I will try to use tracing paper make a small space that side lengths about 60cm for test. I have bought tracing paper online today and it may arrival on Friday. So for tomorrow,maybe I make the frame first.
About the soul experience,Jonathan said it look not real. I think I need to test more about this and figure out which way will work. Because I want to make a steam-of-consciousness style video project on the space,so those experiments above will use in the video. After test all of this I will make a storyboard.
