For this upcoming project, I wanted to some how combine and/or augment an existing art work of mine that is of a more traditional nature. After watching the video in class of the artists that use projection mapping to alter and create a more immersive experience for the viewer out of their physical paintings, I decided I wanted to try something similar. I want to comment on ideal beauty, and how it is intangible and unattainable. A lot of my paintings are about that, so I hope to be able to project organic shapes onto one of my paintings, that highlight or further comment on my desired concept. I am still in the process of choosing what painting, and what exactly I am going to project on to the painting, but here below are the paintings I am deciding between.

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:
