For my paper I chose to research projects by Tomas Saraceno and Mark Hauenstein.The two are very interesting to compare because they are such complete opposites. The works by these two artists really are the difference between “micro” and “macro”.As with most artists, they are constantly exploring however one is seeking a goal whereas the other is rapidly moving from one idea to the next simply for the sake of learning.
I really wanted to figure out how to make my own machinima for this assignment and it proved to be very time consuming. I ran into quite a few technical problems and I'm sorry to say I wasn't able to do what I wanted. I just used windows movie maker for my editing and as you can see, the audio didn't sync with the video. Trial and error I suppose.
For the next part of this assignment I chose to contribute to the Johnny Cash Project. I wish I could show you a better picture of my drawing but I would have had to get a picture before I submitted it. More trial and error.
