Roll On

People have always been traveling but the style on how they show their travels have changed. In Matt Brays 100 people of dance, he is the subject but the scenery behind him is constantly changing. My video is not about traveling but more towards my university life here in Wollongong. I experimented using a ball traveling in one direction. The ball symbolises me, without being in it. The ball travels through numerous location in one direction. Of which I edit the scenes together subsequently creates an amazing continuity effect.

Different ball shots were added to show life is never a straight road. As for the sound, I paired it with a light jingle to describe the fun I had. I too experimented with the audio. In some parts, the jingle was not present but just the sounds of the video itself. At the end, the video goes black but the sound still plays. This represents the uncertainty of the future but our need to keep moving forward.

The Process Is Art Itself

This piece is called ‘Modern Influence ’. How I came to this finally product was a series of failed instructions. My original idea was to create a coloured cube but the more you look at it, the more confuse you become. Simply because the shapes were made in 3D and adding more lines to that would create other shapes as well. When experimenting with colour did I accidentally created this rain of light which reminded me of old televisions. From there I was inspired to create my current work. The reason behind this work was how television itself slowly became better. Hence why the left side has a more faded colour then the right. It also shows how the characters of that time slowly shift and change with this new forms of colour. This is similar to Sol Lewitt instruction artwork. As it’s from the errors that occur during the process can you stumble upon a unique artwork.

Codes

PImage img;

void setup() {

background(0);

size(1000,705); //canvas size

noStroke();

img = loadImage(“mouse.png”); //image used

 

}

 

void draw() {

 

for (int i = 0; i < 1500; i = i +1 ){ //Limits the lines on the sketch. Once it hits 1500 line it will stop.

 

//if it is not at 1500 lines it will add one more

 

noStroke(); //no black line on the shape

 

image(img, 150, 150, 500, 500); //image location and size

 

fill(random(255),random(255),random(255),150); //generates random colours for the line. Last number is opacity

ellipse(random(400), 200, 15, 1000); //makes random thin circles within the given parameter

 

fill(random(255),random(255),random(255),35);

ellipse(random(1000), 200, 15, 1000);

 

stroke(0); //colour of the line

strokeWeight(10);  // thickness of the line

noFill(); //no colours within the shape

rect(5, 1, 790, 700, 20, 20, 20, 20); //creates the rectangle shape and the last 4 points makes the edges more circular
