    Proposal For Final Project Proposal For Final Project Presentation Transcript

    • Evaluating Aesthetics of Interactive Arts Dennis M. Kennelly Aesthetics of Interactive Arts Dr. Mihai Nadin Nov. 15 th , 2008
    • “ Subject?…What’s my subject ?!”
      • This was difficult to determine as stated before, since this is my first ATEC class, and I had no outside projects to stimulate new ideas or to integrate into this class project.
      • It took a bit of time to imagine this project from “scratch” so to speak.
      • Using my background and facing an obvious “creative block” I decided that…
    • “ I’ll make a website !” * A site to help remove a creative person’s (especially writers) blockage or lack of ideas. * Motivation spurred by emotional stimulation, based on themes of images, calling up personal memories and commonly held archetypes.
    • How to go about this ?
      • I would collect images from digital camera (SLR) and upload to my Mac.
      • Images would be separated into groups based on themes of emotions.
      • Emotions would have counter-feelings as well, for balance and variety of human expressive range.
    • … planning for this ?
      • Seek estimate from friend about possible issues and the required time for the level of programming needed.
      • Images would be separated into groups based on themes of emotions.
      • Emotions would have counter-feelings as well, for balance and variety of human expressive range.
    • I seek to boost the Brainstorming Process by presenting a format to stimulate a “stuck” imagination, catalyzing BREAKTHROUGHS .
    • Evaluation Criteria
      • Each student would have a printed listing of the images in hand during viewing
      • The image would be sequentially numbered, matching the slide show
      • Images would have a short nickname listed, further identifying the image on the form.
      • On a scale of 1-5 would be used to gauge the effectiveness of the images to be used in the website
    • Evaluation Criteria cont.
      • Viewers would offer opinions on :
      • Color of background
      • Color of the image itself-
      • Some visuals may or may not work well in color, while others seem to suit our prejudices for expressing emotions in the starkness of black and white tonal range.
      • The next slide is an example*
    • ex. Slide #1)
    • Project example:
      • Happiness -
      • * Does it convey the
      • general feeling?
      • * Does the viewer feel
      • warmly or connect
      • internally with one’s
      • own memories and
      • archetypes of balloons
      • & young girls in bright
      • dresses, to sense the
      • happiness presented?
    • Evaluation Criteria cont. * Does the background color belong or coordinate with the emotion represented? *As the viewer, does the entire slide, including the image, intuitively “work” ? * What would you change?
    • The Final Product :
      • Supplying a lively stage setting for the much sought-after formation of creativity
      • for “blocked” wordsmiths
      • in their scripted
      • artistic expressions
      • through selected
      • inspiring imagery.
