Day 1- Media Archeology Research Project: 

This project is a research-based project, aiming to discover "dead media" as much as possible. 

 

Day 2 -  Time Painting

To continue exploring the passage of time, I created another painting by recording the shadow in 4 different times.

Day 3 -  Twisting Time

During my research, I realized an interesting point of Media Archeology is the concept of twisting time. Artists usually implemented old techniques with technologies in digital era, a way to connect the past and the present. I stated to think about connecting different time periods. Continue with the idea from Day2, I started using Unity to create light and shadow of simple objects to describe times, instead of painting. 

 

Day 4 -  Moving Image

Inspired by early cinematography, which used continues moving images. I made moving effects using the series of images created in Day3.

Day 5 -  Reinventing Zoetrope

Zoetrope, one of the early cinema machine, has nearly been abandoned nowadays. In this project, Im intend to reinvent it by using computer-based graphics, instead of traditional hand drawing cartoon. I created two stripes of images which will be put into Zoetrope, to see the moving images.
