Second Life Character

For my fantasy Character I was feeling in a Christmas mood, maybe because of the upcoming Santa Crawl. I searched Christmas type outfits and when I saw the reindeer I thought the feet and antlers were just super cool. I was hoping to find her a longer skirt since everything in second life is pretty skimpy I couldn't really find anything.

The first image is a figurine of a moogle from final fantasy, which has been a huge part of my life growing up and the reason that I want to get into video game development. The second image is my collage. I chose my playstation 3, make up, and my straightener.

Video Response question
People always get up in arms over military issues. Even in class it was the most controversial topic. But why is it that people get so upset with games being used as a way to market military? Think about when you were a kid, boys play soldier and their toys are G.I. Joe's what makes video games so different?

Another issue that left me confused was whether or not they should change school curriculum to be more influenced by technology. How will we know that we won't be loosing something that is crucial by changing or how do we know what we are missing out on by not?

Super Video

For this video I used "people like us" and filmed still motion shots with my Galaxy S3. I edited the clips in Final Cut Pro X. Things that I did were adding the waterfall effect, changing the timing of the shots, reversing the shots, and cutting them down to different spots.

Busting the Tube- Response Questions

1) In the article it discusses McLuhan's idea that technology was going to transform society. the article says, "This vision imagined that electronic communications were an extension of the human nervous system and operated in a binary kind of progression-as technology advances, so does the human sensory perception needed to receive it". (pg.2). Being able to grow up with technology we are really the best proof to his theory. Do you think that growing up in an age that technology was always advancing has changed how we perceive things?

2) When the article starts talking about the expansion of video art it mentions how government funding had a huge impact of the effect that videos were able to have. Allowing artists to view themselves as being "legitimate artists". So, in other words it seemed that as people started investing in the video arts it began to be viewed as a real art form. Comparing the video arts to other forms of arts such as painting, it is very clear that paintings are more widely known. Most people will have a certain artist or painting that is their favorite. So, why isn't video art on the same level as the classics? Is it because it is still growing and we haven't recognized the greats of it, or is it that video art just doesn't connect with us as well as the older art forms?

I recomposed the project to give it the same format as the first assignment. This time I did it completely in CS6 and pulled the images from the right and left side of my triptych and merged it into one. Before I merged all the layer and warped them all together but this time I created six trees that I made move and I think it helped it look smoother. I also added motion to her hand and to do that I just cut it from the rest of her and burned the edges around where it used to be so you couldn't tell anymore and made it wave back and forth.
