The assignment for our final project was to revisit one of our earlier CommLab projects and take onboard any feedback we received at our earlier presentation.
Katherine and I decided to re-work our ‘Not Free Food’ rap. The main comments we wanted to incorporate were; to add reverb to our voices, and play with the various [...]
Alex and I created an animation using After Effects. Our starting point was a night shot of Brooklyn Bridge, which we wanted to have succumb to evil attack and general despair. This is expressed with a ‘Monopoly banker’ jumping off the bridge, a synchronise swimmer being attacked by a white shark, a missile being launched [...]
We (Poram, Katherine, Michael, and myself) shot our video a week ago, in a great venue on the upper east side (Michael works in the building). The shoot took over 5 hours including setup. Pretty much everything went smoothly, apart from some elaborate giggle fits and some difficulties with the sound. The expansiveness of the [...]
As a group of four – Katherine, Poram, Michael, and I are creating a short video piece. Our starting point, after some initial brainstorming, was the concept of “transformation” in terms of the viewers “concept and perception of reality”.
We were looking at paradigm shifts with regards to what is ‘real’ (objectively speaking) and what the [...]
As a team of two (Katherine and I) created a 1-minute sound piece – using audacity.
We decided to write and record our own rap, in reaction to recent thefts on the ITP floor – on a smaller scale the lack of accurate funds in the Clif bar locker after each month, and the most recent [...]
A one minute stop motion movie created by myself and Poram.
We used a drawn character called Blob, and followed him on his adventures within a magazine environment …
Blob’s Life from Patricia Adler on Vimeo.
Below are snap shots of our process, showing some of the individual drawings required for each motion and our setup. Another fun [...]
As a team of two, Julio and I, would like to tell you a story – with 10 sequential images.
Our process to get here was to brainstorm random thoughts and words, make a list and then see which ones stood out for us.
The words/ concepts we started off with were:
- alternate realities [...]
“The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Preproduction” by Walter Benjamin
Art = Personal Expression. Or at least, that is how I define this rather elusive term – which people have related to in vastly different ways, over the thousands of years of human development.
“The earliest art works originated in the service of a [...]
I am in absolute awe of Forster’s ability to envisage what was yet to be conceived. The similarities between The Machine and the internet, as we know it, is mind blowing – especially, considering that he wrote his story in 1909.
And yet, his version is still vastly advanced to ours. The question is, of course, [...]
It was a gorgeous day when I visited the Tree Museum, and I decided to focus on the middle stretch, around Franz Sigel Park.
The plaquettes were hard to find, even with a map, and initially somewhat underwhelming. Having said that, calling up some of the audio guides was good fun and stimulating – especially when [...]
