PROPOSAL Topic Urban life style Title Time Background Time is a dimension in which events can be ordered from the past through the present into the future, and also the measure of durations of events and the intervals between them. Time travel could hypothetically involve moving backward in time to a moment earlier than the starting point, or forward to the future of that point without the need for the traveler to experience the intervening period Aim To addressing the changes on time changes in city of Kuala Lumpur by focusing only the moment of time.
PROPOSAL Problem Identification *How to show the busy city in a beautiful way *Does the installation need to be interactive with the user * What kind of media that this installation requires Motivation In this project I would like to address the time changes that happening in Kuala Lumpur city. Time is always an interesting topic to study all about, time itself form an uniqueness . Besides that, it has encouraged me to gather information from static, which will help create some concept of idea to explore and develop. Idea And Concept The idea of my project is to encourage people know the beauty of Kuala Lumpur city by the changes of the time. My concept on this topic is to provide a video installation or documentary. This video covers some helpful information and will help you to visualize.
RESEARCH AND ANALYSISTime-lapse photography Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. For example, an image of a scene may be captured once every second, then played back at 30 frames per second. The result is an apparent 30-times speed increase. Time-lapse photography can be considered the opposite of high speed photography or slow motion.
RESEARCH AND ANALYSISVideo Art Video art is a type of art which relies on moving pictures and comprises video. Video art came into existence during the late 1960s and early 1970s as the new technology became available outside corporate broadcasting and is still widely practiced and has given rise to the widespread use of video installations.
RESEARCH AND ANALYSIS Precedent Studies - The city limits This video had been shot this time-lapse montage from late 2010 through early 2011. This video has taken one year to finish up the whole thing .The artist goal was to show the duality between city and nature.
RESEARCH AND ANALYSIS Precedent Studies – Easy way out In this video the artist has creatively talk about the time. It shows the daily routine that he doing, with the same activity. This show time does play a role in every humans life.
IDEA AND DEVELOPMENT The Initial Idea At first I was thinking about doing about time management on working people by capturing their activities on their daily life. But because of “ Time Management it doesnt sound like a art student, it was more to a social science. I couldn’t find more information about this topic. Idea Development To improve the idea, I have change it to “TIME” which make me to do more research and it and I did some observation around Jalan Ampang, around klcc. Finally I came out with idea of recording video with all the time changes in Kuala Lumpur city. Before I start recording, I did some observation and I found out that Time-lapse video art can be done by using a compilation of pictures only.
IDEA AND DEVELOPMENT Interval meter Since in my project is using photography , I am going to use the interval meter as my way of capturing images. This interval meter is a device which counts intervals of time. An interval meter is a device that plugs into a camera and controls how often, how long and how many shots are taken. what i have done is set the timer as 20 second. So it will be snapped every 20 second and the will be collected the sequences of the image into the hard disk.
IDEA AND DEVELOPMENTObservation A few weeks back, I have went to near klcc (Kuala Lumpur City Center) area, which is the main highlight for Kuala Lumpur city. I went did some observation on kl city. I found out the movement of the clouds that reflected the klcc is quit interesting. Beside that , I did observe how does the people activities. I found some interesting, the movement of the lights at the nights on the buildings.
CONTEXTUAL STUDIES Geographical Time itself is a general is a general thing, in which space includes all forms. A common theme is the study of the geographies of the past and how a place or region changes through time. Many historical geographers study geographical patterns through time, including how people have interacted with their environment, and created the cultural landscape. geographic information system that may display, store and analyze data of past geographies and track changes in time. The place that I have choose is Kuala Lumpur city. Social Context social context refers to the immediate physical and social setting in which people live or in which something happens or develops. Time is something that happens and giving a lot of changes in daily lifes.
CONTENT DEVELOPMENT A few weeks back, I have went to near klcc (Kuala Lumpur City Center) area. There are few images that I inspire me in so many ways. I tried to call to mind the pictures that I should find out. Besides that snap picture from near housing area, to get the far view of kl city.
CONTENT DEVELOPMENT Experimental with software * I have determined to do the greater part of my work in After Effects. The conception of my time based piece is centered on the organization visual elements of the sequences of image. *I did an experiment on how to connect make the time lapse into a sequences. *This experiment is done without any tutorials, simply because I wanted to find out whether this method is working or not . *So, the development is very quiet turn out well. The 4 hours picture that have collect its turn out once created in video is only 4 second.
