This is a reel from our 3D Computer Graphics program. This one-year program is often taken after the DMT program. But the advanced 3D program is open to any students who have a solid understanding of the basics of design, illustration, and 3D modeling.
Music video to be released in early 2009 on Sputniko!'s debut album. The video was shot on HDV and uses projections of still and moving images on the surface of Hiromi's body and face, which was then composited in after effects and premiere. Everything you see in the video is projection on skin; very little effects work was done other than colour correction and layer blending.
The latter half of the 20th century saw the built environment merged with media space, and architecture taking on new roles related to branding, image and consumerism. Augmented reality may recontextualise the functions of consumerism and architecture, and change in the way in which we operate within it.
A film produced for my final year Masters in Architecture, part of a larger project about the social and architectural consequences of new media and augmented reality.
