Update Sept 28 451

These past two weeks I focused on really hashing out the details for what my project will center around. I am still going to have the projection but I was thinking about taking out the mapping part that would be on the painting that I did. I started to digitally draw out the face that I am going to use for the animation part of my project. I really focused on the face but then decided that I needed to have the whole body. I want the focus to be on body image and how social media portrays what you should look like. I wanted there to be possibly multiple projections of different types of bodies almost with a camouflage feel to them. This is going to show different skin colors and how skin is never perfectly a solid color. I started to play with the audio, which is taken from different youtube videos taking parts from the videos where women are telling their viewers that they should do this and that to look better, which most of it is completely unnecessary. The audio, I think, will add a lot more to the project than just a projection. The pairing of the body image and the audio of women telling women that they should do things to themselves to look perfect seems to pair well. Also in the future I might want to take this project a step further and put it into book form.

Progress Update for Sept 14

For these past two weeks I was really concentrating on research about projection mapping and how I was going to pull it off. I found a couple of good videos that I wanted my final to look like.
This one if definitely not anywhere that mine would be like but it was cool to see what you can do with projection mapping. I want to project m piece onto a blank wall instead of having it on a painting like I wanted to do at first. I want the message behind it to be about emotion and the turmoils everyone has to go through on a daily basis because of social media pressure. I was also inspired by this video as well. Both of these examples use real 3D faces which I am going to use just a projection on a flat surface. But I want to see how far I could push myself with animating a face using different programs.
