5 in 5
5 projects in 5 days for one of the Major Studio assignments.
I started by editing some photographs I took at night in Dumbo near Brooklyn Bridge. My intention was to edit them so that the lights and the colors would be highlighted in a subtle way and the images will have a shiny and moving feel.
I used Photoshop for this. I got the shiny subtle texture but the photographs felt static.
To add movement, I took the concept further and converted the images to cinemagraphs adding subtle moving elements in After Effects.
For this project, I did a photo series on the street trash. Instead of taking photos of beautiful stuff, I picked up my camera and roamed around the streets collecting photos of trash.
In addition to its harmful effects on people and the surroundings, no matter how balanced or well adjusted the photographs are, it doesn’t look good in them, forget about in real on the streets.
DON’T throw your shit on the streets. DON’T.
Gig Documentation Teaser
I have been following Mount Kimbie, an electronic music duo for a while now and really wanted to attend their gig at The Wick in Brooklyn. So I did and for this project, I decided to document some of the things that transpired during the gig. I made videos during the 3-4 hours I was there covering the whole area. I realised how hard concert photography/videography is. There is not enough lighting, people move all the time and its very difficult to get stable shots.
I made some new friends and had an amazing time. Just click on the link to check how crazy it was!
This is a music project I did which is a compilation of some of my loops and short abstract pieces. This is the second short little EP which goes under one of the projects I do called μoodles.
I had made 4 μoodles earlier so for this project, I made the fifth one called Home, levelled all the tracks, made the cover art (edited a photo I took back home in India) and uploaded it to soundcloud and my portfolio blog. I used Ableton Live for them.
Enter the Void T-shirt
Ever since I saw the movie, I’ve wanted its t-shirt. So I thought of designing a t-shirt for this project. I wanted it to be really neat, colourful and abstract. So for the front, I took some scenes from the movie and arranged them in a circular shape (representing the void). For the back, I used barcode for the movie from the site: http://moviebarcode.tumblr.com/post/4002326136/enter-the-void-2009-prints.
I placed the bar on the bottom left because I wanted it to be a little unconventional (as is the movie).
