For this exercise we were asked to find pattern and rhythm around campus, and draw them into 9 squares. Then, we were asked to make a composition showing symmetry.
For this project, we were asked to chose a word and animate it using 3D layers with a camera.
The word I chose was feather. I first made the word in illustrator, and then brought it into after effects. I used a track mask to make the path where the feather would float. I then made the feather a 3D object, and manipulated the x, y, and z coordinates to make the feather look like it was floating in a 3D space. By copying and pasting the feather multiple times, I was able to get more feathers floating down. I altered their entrance times so that they would come in more randomly.
What I find the most interesting about Sol LeWitt’s creative process is the simplicity and humbleness of his work. His piece “Circle with towers”for example was made for people to interact with. The common theme that he never expected his work to be shown in the traditional way of looking at art from behind a rope or through glass is interesting, because most artist with traditional art don’t want people touching or interacting. The fact that LeWitt lets people interact with his work, let them experience his work in their own way.
The most impactful sentence I think is “rational judgments repeat rational judgments.” Being in the age if social media, it’s hard to stand out. Sometimes it’s hard to be different because everyone is into something else. However if we don’t step out of the box, we won’t experience anything new.
- draw 7 random dots evenly throughout the page
- Connect any 3 dots with a ruler making a triangle
- using on of the points from the triangle, make another triangle with any other two points.
- with 2 remaining points, make a line
- make 4 sided shape using any points of your choice
- fill in a triangle with squiggly lines
- fill in any shape with little circles
- completely color in the smallest shape
For this project, we were asked to make a composition using point, shape, and line from live photos we have taken.
