Future Past Project 2 Research

“We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible. Trump’s action [pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement] could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and raining sulfuric acid,” Hawking said.”

After researching before building up my new project I had a clear understanding on how my it would look and how it would translate a message that Stephen Hawking had already spoken before his death, around a month ago.

I researched about Stephen Hawking, his theories, his last appearances and talks.

“Last year, Hawking warned in a BBC documentary that in order for humanity to save itself from the threats of climate change, disease, and overpopulation we need to colonize Mars within 100 years.

“By denying the evidence for climate change, and pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, Donald Trump will cause avoidable environmental damage to our beautiful planet, endangering the natural world, for us and our children,” he said.

My project would be formed of people, because as people we are the main issue. People queuing on a very long queue, different characters queuing in the exact same way, no matter the sex, age, culture, no rules, no first and no last, who gets there before, they are all there respecting each other. That is how I see it, that is how I imagine our last day on Earth.

After researching the company SpaceX;

SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches advanced rockets and spacecraft. The company was founded in 2002 to revolutionize space technology, with the ultimate goal of enabling people to live on other planets.” gave me the idea to connect what Stephen Hawking left us as a last statement of his studies. I imagined the simplicity and beauty of people queuing and what they would do while they are standing or waiting.

Define how your work can be ‘experienced’ for your visual proposal

I will create a simple 3D wall model that would represent any building in 100 years time. I have in mind to take picture of a Roman road building surface, to keep the location alive in my project and use its own posters and advertisements as my own way of advertising the day we leave this planet.

I will create a 3D wall model that could represent any wall or building in 100 years time. I have in mind to a take picture of a Roman road building surface with its own bricks and textures, to keep the location alive in my project, and use its own posters, advertisements and everything that relates to publicity as my own layout. The actual real ad layout will stay but the content will change by placing my illustration instead.

What would be represent in this mini 3d wall? A promotional poster made by me, which is one of the outcomes, flyers and a meeting point poster, everything signed by Space Z, instead of the company Space X, keeping the project playful and light-hearted. If successful, it will be a fun way to discover people and their facets by looking at each one, understanding their personality, who they are, what place they had in the world and how everything changed. A smaller version of “Great Waldo Search” in terms of chaotic but balanced visual language.

The story has been created by researching Stephen Hawking’s last affirmations before his death. The story is being completed by the the ultimate goal of enabling people to live on other planets as SpaceX affirms and it has been created by me as a playful way of seeing the future and Humanity’s last chance.

Future past Brief 2 Intro -Archives & Future Places

Our next brief will allow us to engage in discussion about place – past, present and future.

Collaborating with sixth form students from Mulberry UTC and with Roman Road Trust community, the new brief will demand we explore and collect material related to Bow, specifically to Roman road.

Mulberry UTC will provide us a series of kits that we, cass students, will respond by creating projections of future of imagined locations set on 100 years from now, so 2118.

The introduction was exciting and I am curious about this collaboration that we are going to start with Mulberry’s students. Looking forward to start this new challenge.

Market Ready workshop “the Brand”

On this day workshop we were asked to go out and look for brands around the uni area. This would help us to better understand how visual language needs to be used when related to a product. We went to knock at restaurants and asked for menus to take with us, into tattoo shops and collect some business cards, nail shops, supermarkets and fried chicken shops around spitalfield area. That was going to help us to know how we wanted our logo to be created, so thinking about type, colours, space and everything that together brings a proper visual language to our product.

I believe that this workshop was very useful since not many companies know much about design and logos and unfortunately some of them were visually ugly  and “cheap” designs while some others were clean and easy to understand. After this workshop we are going to have a better idea on what use in our logo, thanks to Damahn which is willing to participate in our group and help us deliver an outstanding logo for our product.

Project 2 Sound, set & action (5)

Easter Holiday. Perfect time for me to get all my projects done before the end of this amazing (and not yet finished) first year of uni.

After researching a lot for real and serious intentions of getting a good stop motion video, I can say that I have finally made one (I’m very happy of the results!) and even though I know I won’t be the best in a digital platform neither I’m not looking to become one of the best. I know what is my potential and I can only adjust and perfect it in a personal way and listen to other people’s opinion.

This project really put me down. I could not translate my ideas into reality and it drove me crazy. But that’s why we are at uni right? Sometimes we forget that this is not a competition with ourselves and I committed that mistake.

It is just a 30 seconds video, and following the limits we had to consider I can finally say I’m satisfied with the results.

This is what a big research, technical improvements and patience can do (and forcing my boyfriend to do sounds and voices was actually fun).

This is definitely the most difficult project I never came across.

Back at square one, I found myself looking for another idea and completely in panic.

The toilet paper was not appropriate for painting at all.

I wanted to keep the idea of the little cutted cards moving around the scene so I changed it, by using posts its and typography. After a critical day at uni I decided it was time to change completely (again) and move forward with something new.

Never adjust experiments, create something new.

This video below is what I brought to the table.

A project that reflects my weakness and lack of digital work and editing.

I still have some easter holidays left and I’m sure I can get something that reflects my personality better and I will find a way out!

Project 2 Sound, set & action (3)

I started organizing my thoughts, choosing the materials,  the narrative and the sounds.

At first it seemed impossible and now I found myself struggling to find a “great” idea looking at the ceiling and it was bringing me nowhere. After many breaks (way too many), I ended up finding inspiration looking at simple object/material found around me.

Toilet paper, (yeah, I was in the loo when I had the idea) maybe that could be an “original” way of creating my first stop motion movie?

I know how difficult it is to prove yourself when you don’t have basic skills and knowledge in a specific field like digital platforms but I needed to translate my ideas faster!

Here is the first trial.
