Every day, thousands of significant statements are made by artists, politicians, journalists, celebrities, and regular people. This kinetic typography piece is based on a quote of personal interest to me from Dan Gilbert’s presentation on Ted Talk.
"It's as if, for most of us, the present is a magic time. It's a watershed on the timeline. It's the moment at which we finally become ourselves.Human beings are works in progress that mistakenly think they're finished. The person you are right now is as transient, as fleeting and as temporary as all the people you've ever been. The one constant in our life is change." — Dan Gilbert
From Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dissenting opinion on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby.

A kinetic type project for the TED TALK by Bran Ferren. This is the part where Bran compares the pyramids in Giza with the Pantheon in Rome (starting at 6:01). I tried to do the kinetic type project with twist by combining it with vector drawings, and as a result, there are some parts where only the drawings that reflect what Bran is talking about, instead of a pure kinetic type project.
For the entire talk, please click on the following link:
When Bran Ferren was just 9, his parents took him to see the Pantheon in Rome — and it changed everything. In that moment, he began to understand how the tools of science and engineering become more powerful when combined with art, with design and beauty. Ever since, he's been searching for a convincing modern-day equivalent to Rome's masterpiece. Stay tuned to the end of the talk for his unexpected suggestion.
For my Motion1 class in the Graduate Communications Design Program at Pratt Institute, the project is to create a 20-30 second “opener” or teaser for a current MoMA exhibition. Exhibition: “There Will Never Be Silence: Scoring John Cage’s 4’33’’ ” at MoMA.
The goal of this project is to further explore my creativity within time-based visual communication, to investigate the potential of combining traditional design attributes with those unique to time-based work (pacing, rhythm, and sequence). The emphasis of this piece is on my visual interpretation/representation of the exhibition and the artist (Jean Arp) whom I chose to highlight. and my use of time and motion to communicate a message.
Exhibition Date: Oct 12, 2013 – Jun 22, 2014
Highlighted Artist: Jean Arp
Music: Melody 3 by John Cage
