Distortion                     Distortion Distortion

For the distortion project, I continued working with glass in between my subject & the viewer. I placed a 8×10 piece of glass between the camera and a painting. The highlight of this project are the textures you see and can visualize, so you can complete the image.  I was inspired by Uta Barth.  The link leads to a great interviewer about her Ground and Field series. I plan on continuing work like this. Over the break I will be finding resources and experimenting with the fundamental ideas from this project and bringing it outdoors.

This project seeks to question the validity of your perception of your physical appearance, and how accurately you can actually see your features. Other people see you differently than you see yourself, and some people might find flaws where you see none, or tell you that the flaws you think you have are not flaws at all. Attractiveness is subjective, and although you may think you are attractive, to others you may not be that way. But the real question is, is there ever a way to truly know what you look like? Or is it all subjective to your sense of complacency?

Distortion Inspiration – Jaymie Idowu

I still don’t know what I want to do for the distortion, but one video i thought of was Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun.  It uses green screens, and of course distorted faces.

Although, I all over the place as to where I want to go with this project, I’m pretty sure I don’t want to go the Soundgarden video route.  I’m thinking of something darker and grittier with bodies.  Not quite, Nine Inch Nails’ Closer.

May something that mixes the feel of the video and abstract images like this:

But on my search i found the below images, by Pol Úbeda Hervàs really inspiring for distortion.  How could I make a video using this concept?

Matthew Albanese

Matthew Albanese did this project, called “Strange Worlds”, where he created sets of places and photographed them to look life size. The amount of attention to detail and specificity of these sets are what allows them to look so real in the photographs. There are so many aspects to consider here; the materials used to construct the set, the scale of the objects in relation to the camera and to one another, the lighting, the angle of the camera, etc.I thought this project was a great example of distortion because you are literally distorting a person’s perspective of the image. He is taking a diorama, something you could hold in your hand, and making it look like a completely real scene.

I used this for my homework because they distort the body in all sorts of ways and it throws you off. It’s a really interesting video. They used a lot of photoshop and distorted it to make the effect that things are just odd. I enjoy how they didn’t over do the effects of distortion and left it to seem a bit believable.
