3W09 – Looking Back

21 02 2008

I catch my self going back on my work, especially the work for my MADA, and I see how It got developed to what it is today.

Did I succeed?

Is this the feeling I want to create/show my piece?

How and from whom I got influence at most?

Is it developed enough?

Do I get involved and do I help my fellow students?

Well, these and many more questions spinning in my head every day, and I don’t feel this is bad or annoying. Actually it is the opposite. I feel that taking this course, helped me more like an artist; more than I actually expected.

Now did I finally succeed? I sure did. At least in personal level I feel I have gain a lot and this is a success for me.

About my project and my art work, I am very sure that the development lead me to a new way of thinking; a more mature and more artistic. Getting out of the standards, and self boundaries I feel more complete as an Artist.

Well…do I feel I got my piece developed a lot? The ‘path’ it is there. The work foundations are there, and the pieces of the puzzle are lay down on the table; all I have to do its to put the piece together.

I didn’t expect to get so involved with other students; not that I didn’t want to, put due to limited time that I have in my life. I feel very lucky to have such a good and artistic group around me.

Greetings felllow publication members,

 

Its been brought to my attention about having a 3D animation – (maybe an opening of the show 30sec with music etc) with Logo design and Poster design viewed on a plasma TV. 

 

This would save £££ on printing posters and also its better for the environment.  We might be able to save a tree branch!  Sorry…Monday morning humor…I’m working on it.

 

Let me know what you all think and if it would be worth bringing up in our next meeting.

 

Cheers,

 

Peggy Jordan

 

Thanks Christos!

Hi Peggy,

This is Christos from online MADA. I will post some things I can do so you have in mind how you may want to arrange ‘Publication’ things around.

1)      3D animation – (maybe an opening of the show 30sec with music etc)

2)      Logo design

3)      Poster design

4)      Editing of any video

I think it will be nice to have on a plasma TV (or LCD) at the entrance of the show a loop video of the show ‘name’ rather just still posters.

Let me know what you thing.

Christos Demosthenous

3W08 My Input on Final Show

20 02 2008

After some thoughts that I have about the final show I came up with some ideas that I shared with Peggy the leader of Publication team.

I told her that I can do an animation (opening-loop) for the show and we can play it on a screen.

We can also have all the posters and ‘paper’ work, added to this piece so we don’t spent time or money on printing, and mostly we could do our little share of saving the environment. You can have a look at the email at https://dotworld.wordpress.com/category/emailspresentation/ and see the follow ups e.t.c

PhD – talking with Doctors of the world

This week I had a meeting with the founder of Doctors of the world-Cyprus Dr. Elleni Theocharous. I must admit that I got the chills just by talking to her. She is just an amazing woman and she has achieved so much in her life, which it’s an honour to anyone to talk to her. The greatest thing of all is that she was so enthusiastic about my idea, and she told me that she will help me all the way to make this come true. She also told me that I can travel with them around the world and video recording everything. There next mission will take place, early of this March and I can travel with them.





3W07 Wikispaces

20 02 2008

These 3 weeks will be very hard for me to ‘over-work’ with my MADA project since I’m going to work until very late for the presidential elections that takes place in Cyprus, but still I will keep up with chats and so on.

Wiki

Today I have added myself at our MADA Wiki place (http://madigitalarts.wikispaces.com/MA+Final+Show), as one of the ‘members’ of the publication team.

Final Show

For the final show I’m not sure if I will have the time to travel to England to setup my piece and stay there until it finished. Will see how other students will overcome this problem and I will try to find a solution myself. I may do it local and webcast it or something.

Other Artist

I made a little search on the web this week to, trying to find more Interactive Storyboard artists. Well I must say that it’s a bit hard to find exactly what I am doing. Nevertheless, I did found an artist called Brian (http://murraystudios.com/gallery.html#Anchor-23522), where his work is to do digital storyboards. I found his work very ‘clean’ and right to the point, but unfortunately it’s not the style I want to create in my piece. When I started my MADA this was the style that I wanted to follow, but not anymore. Next week I will try to find some more abstract storyboards work, or even some abstract artist to get some influence from.





Publication – Peggy

16 02 2008

Today we got the update for the MA show from Tara and Katrin. As I wrote on Wikispaces I can help with Publications (http://madigitalarts.wikispaces.com/MA+Final+Show),and now that we have our leaders of each section we know where to send our ideas and thoughts. So I did send an email to Peggy Jordan with what I can do and some ideas. See below the email I send and the reply I got

Hi Christos,

 

I think that is a great idea.  Let me discuss with the other members of the group for feedback.

 

Thanks,

 

Peggy
