This week we were supposed to design a font based on word and write the word using this typeface.
I decided to design a font created by multiple random thin lines crossing with each other.
Because I was totally wired in, instead of displaying jus a word, I wrote the whole alphabet.
I have to say that the whole process took me a looooong time, but I was really happy with the result.
I decided to use the ‘Gotham’ font, convert it to poly and randomly connect points of the array. Of course JS wasn’t aware of the letter shape, so the lines between random points created a chaos, not a letter shape:
to make it look like a letter, I had to draw a poly converted letter again, draw a rect and using fill path rule display just a rectangular shape, with carved letter inside. Finally I got the result I was looking for:
This process was pretty crazy, since I had to do it separately for each letter of the alphabet.
Here we go! Finally, I finished my Computational Portraiture assignment!
The task was to ‘create a computational portrait. The portrait had to portray a person, in an environment conveying something about them that is not visible to the eye’.
During our class, James and Alexander showed us zillions of amazing tools, we could use to work on our final projects.
I have to say, I was overwhelmed. After long research, many tests, I finally decided to play with Unity 3D.
My idea was to create a 3D self-portrait, placed in my own Wonderland. I wanted to allow the user to walk around my world, so that he could explore more ‘me’ in great details.
As an introduction, I just want to say that I’m a big Tim Burton Fan. He inspires me a lot, so obviously, my work had to be a little bit related to a piece of his art.
One of my favorite movies of his is Alice in Wonderland. Moreover, my middle name is Alice, so naturally my inner wolds looks pretty similar to what he showed in the film.
I have to admit, it’s a little bit trippy and psychedelic, but I guess that’s what I like the most 🙂
First step was to take a 3D scan. Thanks to the best Moon, I was able to get a 3D model of myself. We used Kinect and the software Skanect. I was pretty surprised with the result! The ‘3D me’ turned out to be pretty accurate.
I was playing around with Maya and Blender. Feeling goofy, using Creo Parametric 2 & Keyshot I created a Oscar Statuette out of my scan 😉
Hope you’ll enjoy! 🙂 Have fun! Looking forward to hear your feedbacks!
Also, I’d like to thank James George and Alexander Porter for an amazing class! I wish it would last longer, so I could experience more tools and continue my Unity adventure! Thanks again and looking forward to have some workshops with you in the nearest future!
Write a sketch that generates 2 shapes on a page. The first shape should be your design of the word “wet”. The second shape should be your design of the word “sharp”. Use only black and white. You have to use either Rune.Polygon or Rune.Path objects to draw the two shapes, and please try to do a design that is better done in code than in hand. Print at AMS.
Inspired by my passion to sailing, I decided to depict wet drawing ocean waves, using simple ellipse shapes.
After this step, the idea of sharp fishing hook came up quite naturally.
I had a lot of fun creating waves, changing their sizes, stroke weights or locations.
Here’s the final result:
Next step was to print it out in AMS.
I liked the result and am really excited about upcoming prints!
For our first week assignment, I decided to practice Random Walker and Noise.
Here’s what I came up with :
Later,I tried to experiment with steering walker toward different directions using mouseX and mouseY. Also, to add another feature i set up ‘keyPressed()’ to help centralize random walker in the middle of the screen again.
The first week assignment was to print first generated Rune.js sketch of an ice cream cone.
Also, I’ve learned how to use github.
Using only black (0) and white (255). using triangle(), rect() and ellipse() once each, with no other drawing functions allowed (no beginshape or images), design an ice cream cone. yes, an ice cream cone.
