Up until fairly recently the class was working time-based video project, with the theme of Enviorment. Through this project I learned a tons about using IMovie as a tool to create art. In my own piece I documented the different personal environments of the people in my life, and made it so that the viewer of the piece saw this footage literally through the eyes of my friends and family.
I think my favorite part of this project was definatley learning how to create and use a sort of transparent "mask" in Imovie. Though the project ended up being different than how I imagined in many ways, I was really happy that my original idea of the footage playing behind a GIF mask did work out.
As much as I enjoyed learning about creating time-based art, because of all of the snow that extended the movie project over what felt like a really long time, I'm super happy to have moved on to 3D sculpture. I've always been really interested in 3D printers so I'm incredibly excited to be getting the chance to create and print 3D models.I've used Google Sketch Up in the past, but for the sake of this project I decided to go with Tinkerkad. So far I've really liked the software. It's really straightfoward, which I appreciate, becuase a lot of 3D modeling tools are not.
I'm not quite done with my sculpture, but it's really starting to come together, and it looks very much like how I had panned it. I think that so far, this has been my favorite project of the year, just because it's so different than anything else we've done previous. I can't wait to see it printed out!
