Digital Art Project 2: Self Through the Lens of Motion

Artist Statement:

This piece evolves the concept of project 1′s idea of self and motion through time and self-ageing with the addition of distortion of one’s memory of the past. Fragments of memories can connect one to their past which can be changed and blurred by the mind. Using six images of myself at different ages from a small infant up to the present, exploded fragments of the images are scattered forward and back across the canvas creating a blurred and distorted image. Sometimes the images are clearer than others showing that memories can be changed, enhanced or be influenced by photographs. Our minds are not always reliable in creating a perfect image of the past, often rewriting memories. We all are connected to our past that has shaped us into the people we are today.

Digital Art Project 1: Self Through the Lens of Motion

Artist Statement:

This piece is a collage that embodies the idea of self and motion through time with a visual representation of self-ageing. Using six images of myself at different ages from a small infant up to the present, fragments of the images are scattered across the canvas with a transparency depicting the connection on has with their past and how one changes over time. We all are connected to our past which has shaped us into the people we are today. Fragments of memories can connect one to their past which can be changed and blurred by the mind.

Computational Media Project 2 – Scuba Simulation Quiz Game

Project Overview:

This project will be a one-player educational interactive quiz game to inform

users on various scuba diving facts. To play the user will navigate their way

through a 3D underwater terrain in first person control as they search for

hidden treasure chests. Once a treasure chest is found the user will click on

it and a multiple-choice question will pop up. Upon answering the question

correct the user will collect a treasure point and continue on their search.

If they answer the question wrong they must try again. Once the user has

collected all the treasure the game is over.

The point of the project is to educate the user on scuba diving facts in an

interactive and engagingly fun way.
