Media Environment Unit One – Media Space

Space, Interaction and 3/4G mobile phones.
Jongno Elf by Dave Hall 2005

This will be an introduction class to the concepts of motion graphics, space design for next and present generation mobile phones.

Project >>


Part One

Media Space – Part One - Duration 3 weeks.
QuickTime Virtual reality
This will be a very quick intro project. Well will spend a couple of weeks making some QTVR (QuickTime Virtual reality) movies. QuickTime Virtual Reality movies are technically very easy to produce and provide a first step towards interaction and

Usually QTVR movies are used for location advertisements on the web etc. Here however I want people to think more broadly about creative was to modify the image. At this point please make a blog and vimeo account specifically for this class.

Presentation - Will be an online demo of your QTVR experiments.

Digital and Analogue Graffing by Dave Hall 2005

Part Two

Media Space – Part Two - Duration 5 weeks.
Graphics, Graffiti and Architecture.
As this is a stepping stone project towards project Three (see below). We will try digital graffiti and its many forms. This could be 3D or Projection or something entirely different depending on each student’s skill level. The main objective is the use space and graphics within the confines of architecture and the city.

Presentation - Will be given showing photographs, models and movies of your project. Final presentation will be the process and story uploaded to your blog.


Part Three

Media Space – Part Three- Duration 5 weeks.
Space Design and graphics for 3G mobile phones
This will be where we test environments using the program Unity. We will make graphic interactions rather than a game. These projects will be uploaded to your android or I phone using Unity3D.

Presentation - Will be given using your 3G phone and your project tests.
Final presentation will be the process and story uploaded to your blog.


NOTE – Project three may change depending on the arrival of a 3D printer I have ordered.


Project Three Options >
Please choose ONE of the following for the final 7 week Project.
Option One _ Audio Driven Motion Graphics.

David Hall - Audio dynamic structure 2006

Here we are going to construct a movie based on the concept sound driven graphics.
ie - The image will be driven by the soundtrack.
I expect you to construct the audio track first then use with to create the key points of the graphic motion. It can be real time or pre - rendered.
Some Details here...


Option Two _ Form and Animation.

David Hall - Anim Forms 2007

Here we are going to construct an object based on audio animation.
First we will generate the audio signal then we will use this to create an animation which will be printed ( via laser cutting ) to create an object.

We could call this a 3D font.
Final output and details here...

Option Three _ Zdepth and Motion.

David Hall - Z organics "the traveller" 20010

Here we are going to construct a movie based on the concept of the Z and zdepth.
I expect it to be 50% real footage and 50% CG
