Jamar posted Let’s Use the French Impressionist Effect in Assigments

I experimented with the Crystalize default tool in Photoshop to construct French Impressionist-esque compositions in a matter of seconds—both as homage and defacement.

Also, as a side, played with Maya’s default Fire Particle generator to create very un-fiery effects.

Prin posted Questions Week 6 in Assigments

  1. The word “artist” seems to be more acceptable when one is more concerned about process rather than output. What happens if you replace the “artist” with a “designer”?
  2. If chance is committed in such a rigorous and controlled / pre-determined scope, doesn’t that mean that the environment for that chance to happen is already controlled?
  3. How much chance in Art does the general public value?

Amanda posted Chance City Memories in Assigments

I created collaged postcards—1 set with images and 1 set with type. I quickly made lists of things I miss from the cities in which I’ve previously lived (Atlanta, New York, Shanghai) and then created a set of rules that determined how the cards were made. Dice rolling and extremely short time limits were utilized to eliminate as much thinking as possible.

Teddy posted Assignment 4: Super Mushroom Kingdom in Assigments

This project explores what Super Mario Bros. would be like without its iconic heroes. To accomplish this, I hacked a copy of the game to remove all graphical and textual data related to Mario and Luigi. The result is an extremely disorienting gaming experience in which a player must become hyperaware of his invisible character in order to establish rhythmic movements necessary for navigating through each level.
