For this first project four false statements and one truth I decided to base it off the icebreakers most people play when starting a new class and semester at school. I want to make it to an extreme though where these 5 things are so insane you will not think any of them are true. I am going to make GIFS and digital drawings of me doing things I cannot do (if I can play the guitar or not, If I'm from a specific state or not, if my favorite flower is a rose etc.) and then during the critique I will do something that is actually who I am. I do not want to give away to surprise just yet so I will put below some GIFS of people doing things and what I am going for with this project. The images and GIFS will be similar to what I did for the self-portrait last semester, but challenging myself with the new skills I have possessed. SO an example with this first GIF would be, I can levitate a shoe.

For the final project, I’ve continued with putting together animations. I have a small TV and several laptops that I can use to display my project. I’ve gone with a theme of self-portraits and want to do a “portrait” showing different sides of myself on each screen. The small TV The electronics I plan to use I put together a collage in the shape of a human head for one of the portraits focused on my entertainment interests and the apps that I use in my daily life. I also recorded a little bit of the beginning of one of my League games which I regularly spend time playing in a group with friends and will be incorporated in this portrait. To make the collage I clipped many logos and symbols representing different interests of choice onto a layer below in the shape of the head with glasses. Another one of the portraits I’m including will have some more “surface” qualities like my school major, birth date, and name. The base background I’ll be using to represent a more grim mood:
