The Unknown [Read more]
Static Versions of the Augmented Reality (AR) Posters
On this page you will find the 3 final outcomes of AR Posters, each aiming to use a selective colour palette to create different levels of discomfort and visual excitement. By creating a three-dimensional model of the human skeleton using Nomad Sculpt, Yijing then arranged the bones, obfuscating the individual elements further through overlays and textures in Photoshop. By manipulating the bones to heighten their angular and sharp features, a general feeling of uneasiness and anxiety of the unknown was produced. To complete the experience, the posters were animated, with three-dimensional forms realised, and the accompaniment of sound using the app: Artivive. Videos of the AR posters in motion can be viewed at the bottom of the page.
This poster makes use of stereoscopic dimensional effects when the audience wears Anaglyph glasses (glasses with a red and blue lens).
The tiled assemblage plays with pattern making and size to consider the potential of different juxtapositions of the final outcome posters.
The screenshot above compares the static AR poster with its activated counterpart. The poster disintegrates into segments that jitter around at different depths, forcing the audience to explore perspective and physical space in order to realign the pieces of the image into a coherent whole, or closely inspect each fragment as an image in its own right.
As a part of exploring the dimensions of horror through interactive softwares, Yijing experimented with filters that recognise the human face and trigger a visual effect upon certain facial expression. The image above collages different distortions brought on by the visual effects, with the face splitting into quarters as an attempt to frighten the audience.
Yijing utilises abstract expressionist approaches to project fear, discomfort & horror onto her audience through the interactive uses of 3D & AR technology via distorted symbols & imagery.
Yijing-Lin possesses a creative passion for producing art. Emotions are a significant element that motivates her to create, and music is essential in her process of painting. For Yijing, mood swings brought about by music are intriguing, pushing her curiosity into an exploration of the relationship between music, mood, and design, centring of themes of horror and fear. The purpose of the project is to integrate audio-visualisation through 3D and Augmented Reality technology to provide new opportunities for music promotion and display. Ultimately, this project returns to Yijing's abstract expressionist painting background, albeit, in the context of Graphic Design and Digital Technology.
