Project Ideas

First Idea: Projected Sculpture Thing: Animation: This is an example I made trying to depict this idea, there would be a pair of images hanging on the walls on either side of a corner with a pedestal in the middle. There would be an object, maybe a book, in this case I am still using the chest idea continuing from last semester, that would be "exploded" out into parts and suspended by wire I suppose from the ceiling. Inside of the bottom of the chest I would have paper, or something arranged in a way that would look like a scattering of images at the bottom, and a projector would be used to place images that would be able to change and cycle through. The idea I had behind this was instead of forcing an interaction between the viewer and what I create, you'd be able to still see and experience things, though in a different way, just by watching and moving around a little. Though it does change some aspects of my prior ideas I think it's still interesting.

Second Idea: Wall Collage: The idea for this was to continue with the collage I was doing before and make it more three dimensional by placing the images onto panels that would be extended out from the wall at different depths. By doing this they would have more 'layers' allowing them to be read easier I think, and I like the shadows that are created by the structure too.

Third Idea: Abstracted Book: This is pretty simplistic in a way compared to some of the others, but it would be a nicely made book consisting of the abstract imagery I've been making. I liked George's book from last semester of his images, and how they went together well, and I think having a consistent look/theme would apply to this group of mine. 

Fourth Idea: Handmade Book: This is a continuation of an old project I was working on last year, which was a small 6x6 book that I made myself. I used stained paper and Polaroid transfers to get the images inside, and wrote on the adjoining page about the image and why it was important to me, or the meaning behind it, like a photo journal. 

Fifth: Lightboxes: This is another continuation from an old project, where I made small back-lit frames to display images with. I got this idea from seeing Jack Wall's work in class, and liked how they portray the space in his images.
