Reality as a material – Object #1

This is my first model using some photos I took while Philip was posing, In this case I wanted to do a simple approach to 3D modeling by using a simplified mesh with the combination of 3 photos, The lack of care is intentional as I was looking for a non-realistic representation.

Refection:

It is interesting for me to observe an increase of the “weigh” of the representation by the use of 3D modeling, maybe it has to do with the fact that subject and environment are joined together, I am also aware that the previous knowledge of this scene may interfere with the way I see it, but anyway, I feel that I can suppress more parts of the visual references in order to achieve new and interesting outcomes.

An other interesting thing, is that when I rotate the model I find more information to complete the interpretation of the “scene” (It sound obvious) but I feel that this new information doesn’t need to be presented in a specific order or even more, doesn’t have to be presented as a physical extension of the previous images, It feels that the brain is capable of accepting the changes of directions and even gets excited if presented new and challenging information, I think this is a really good opportunity to start playing with ambiguity!

Physical-digital miscegenation cycle #2

This is my second diagram, I began trying to specify a wide range of components and it has changed a lot.

Reflection:

Right now I am starting to understand the possible relations between “context” and “processes” in the digital world. Files or “digital objects” can have different states depending on the context.

I am also aware that digital environments are dependant on physical matter .

My interest:

It was really great to discover a new approach in the discussion about reality and fiction, Also the ways movies can help us understand reality and also create it.

Ideas to explore:

  • Humans need fantasy to be able to deal with reality.
  • A lot of directors play with what you think you know.
  • You can think about virtual reality as a place where you are able to be somebody else, but maybe it is the opposite, virtual reality is the place in witch you can be the real version of you because you don’t have the restrains of the real world (society, culture, law).

This filmĀ has inspired me keep my research on this topic through the exploration of movies from great directors, this is the first List:

  • Blue Velvet: By David Linch
  • Lost Highway: By David Lynch
  • Mulholland Drive: By David Lynch
  • Stalker: By Andrey Tarkovsky
