Idea of developing: Group project

Filed under: GroupProject — yinzhenbhao @ 1:04 AM

The conception of the project called ‘time elapsing’

In terms of the initial idea
The conception is to express the feeling of time elapsing.

At the beginning, the inspiration emerged about ‘interactive electronic clock by dim vision’. After made a discussion with fellows, we developed the initial idea instead of using interactive LED table and decided to focus on the connection between audience and virtual element. The concept of ‘clock’ also will be replaced by virtual element. The metaphor of falling particles is that time is passing continually, meanwhile, human’s behaviour will be affected and adjusted in certain time.

Idea of developing (edited 8 Jan 2014):

Time conception as an elusive notion can be relatively hard to explain, which provokes
the question to several fields, from psychology to religion, however, the computer vision provides
the possibility to explore the embodiment of time perception. I think we could use virtual element to achieve abstract notion become visible and then combined photographic theory and dynamic virtual effect in the real environment in order
to imply human cognition to time-consciousness that depends on individual’s events.

Idea: Personal project

Talking about the idea of project, it is from the perception of interrelationship among things and events.

When we see a phenomenon, normally for most of us, we understand parts of the causes when it appears, but just like the tip of iceberg, some interconnection we could not know all of that immediately – what’s behind the phenomenon?

This is the original idea before I start doing the project.

As such kind of serious topic, I still believe that ‘less is more’. That is why I would like to use two boxes as the framework of virtual interface to imply that different action(put intersection points on the inside box) will emergence different phenomenon(appears different effects on the outside one).

The metaphor is that human being’s action is influenced on their thoughts and feelings, thus our mind exists regular thinking under changing situation and in a way confines ourselves to known areas. Sometimes the regular thinking more or less resembles a box.

I try to output the conception by interactive effect of sound and images from these two boxes. As the beginning, two virtual three-dimensional boxes as the initial models are made by Processing. I haven’t got some inspirations of the outside one at this moment, but keep learning the skills which can make thoughts output easier when I concept it deeply.

Idea: Learn PD.

Filed under: Idea — yinzhenbhao @ 1:18 AM

After looking various digital artworks in couple of weeks, I have an idea that doing the further practice in tangible music interface. Honestly, I thought I wouldn’t go to attend the music module, but as the saying goes – what you lose on the swings you gain on the roundabouts. It’s not bad. So, I try to find some connection to the modules, and what I am curious about in this part is how to make sounds reflect on images.

The further conception will focus on space. For this stage, I am planing to ask advice from Pro.John about making sounds via Pure Data and the possibility of setting audio on virtual three-dimensional model.
