For this project, since i'm already familiar with projection mapping and the relevant softwares, I decided to try to do something outside of the box. My current plan is to project onto an unusual surface, maybe something involving water, or maybe projecting onto curvatures of a big piece of art I have in my kitchen. I have got a concrete theme yet, but I think I'm going to work the the theme of what you see isn't always what you get, or another social issue that I find relevant or important. For now, I'm more working out the technical aspects of the project, then fine tuning my theme and solidifying the visual language / literacy of the piece later. Overall, my main goal is to play around and push myself to project onto a unique surface I havent worked with yet to make art that's different from other things Ive made so far. I think it'll be great, I love projection mapping!

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:
