HSS8121: Reflection

What interests me the most about this course is that we can get involved with different artists in different areas. For example, I quite enjoyed the walking tour with Tim Shaw. We were not supposed to talk to each other or play cellphones during the walking. This gave me an opportunity to listen to the […]

HSS8121: proposal

Why I want to research the transformation from digital cameras into film like? As a film user myself, I found it very fascinating and convenient to use films as I don’t need to adjust the colour too much and each film has its unique colour as well. However, many friends of mine are using digital cameras […]

HSS8121: Seven Stories

We all wanted to be a hero. I was always wanting to a superhero to save the world. But the thought just faded out as I grows up. Seven Stories just reminded me of all my childhood dreams. Then I decided to help others remind their dreams. I will use the projector and costumes to help […]

DMS8013: Works well without connecting the buzzer

Connecting to the world, or controlled by the world? During doing this project, I watched several Cyberpunk movies. And the Ghost in the Shell(1995) is my favourite.

Then, I transform my voice into tones and using the mini speaker to speak for me. As […]

HSS8120: The manifesto

I’ve created 6 manifestos now and I will continue to do it. 1.Everything is real and nothing is real. 2.What you see is what you think it would be, or what I make you believe it is. 3.I am good at making chaos. 4.Covering, repeating, that’s all the steps. 5.My words are meaningless, my works […]
