**2020 Covid-19 Takeover: I took a projection mapping class during the time SCAD stopped all on-ground classes. Therefore I was not able to actually project and capture my work in their intended locations.**
This was my first attempt at projection mapping. I had a white dress that I stuffed with trashbags and blankets and such. I wanted to project super colorful imagery, so I just played around with simple shapes in aftereffects and once I got bored, I found videos of mandalas and psychedelic patterns on youtube.

The location of this projection was at a general store window front on Whitaker St. in Savannah Georgia.
I was inspired by light floors and the stereotypical idea of disco. I first created the light floor animation and then used various RED GIANT particular and form Plug ins to create the patterns that take over.

After spending what seemed like the entire quarter "protesting" (not doing) live action in favor of doing more abstract work. This project was a collaboration with a friend of mine in film, Patrick Corcoran (link to come soon) gave me some of the footage he has shot from various projects he has directed. After cutting it together, I fit it into the mask the professor provided and added a filter to give the footage a nostalgic end of summer feel to it.
I wanted to create a second buttery, and challenge myself a little. I used the provided obj file, modified it in C4D and then brought it into After Effects through a RED GIANT Form plug in. I added some interest by using a simple animation. Overall, my classmates and I agreed it had a very Disney/ Tinker bell -esque quality to it.

I incorporated live video I shot of the colored oil moving on water, I used coconut oil and oil based food coloring. Thankfully where I was living, I had access to light tables, I put a big tupperware container on top and cut out the shape of it on a large piece of black paper, to block out the surrounding light. I brought the footage into Premiere to edit and color correct. I then cut the footage together based on what I thought looked the most interesting/dynamic. I decided to invert the white background while masking the color blobs to maintain their color. I wanted to use an upbeat and energetic audio and I come across Tobu - Colors to back the footage. After completing this, I realized I needed more, I came up with a word list of things that came to mind when I thought of the phrase "Art is". and I synced these answers with the beats in the audio.
