For this project I want to go in the direction that I have become interested with since last semester. I have found an obsession with Projection Mapping, especially with projecting onto paintings and photos making them come "alive". I want to go back into this by projection mapping videos and my own animations onto a painting. I want to focus on a theme of "trashing" the oceans and essentially destroying natures beauty and resources with man-made technologies and plastics. I want to start with a painting of the ocean and then put an animation of waves and the plastic that keeps appearing on top of animals/ in animals and all over the beach.

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:
