Project Update #2 – PSYCHEDELIC FRENZIED MIND OF UNCERTAINTY

For the project to kick off, I will definitely need an individualized page for the audience to refer to the contents of my project.

Hence, after consulting Randall, I created a separate page for this project in WordPress and still in progress to include several additional links for clearer separation of my project elements eg project inspirations etc.

I realize that this psychedelic idea comes from my subconscious obsession with the 1960s era of freedom and so I researched more on this era.

COUNTERCULTURE

(excerpt from wikipedia) ” In the second half of the decade, young people began to revolt against the conservative norms of the time, as well as remove themselves from mainstream liberalism, in particular the high level of materialism which was so common during the era. This created a “counterculture” that sparked a social revolution throughout much of the Western world. It began in the United States as a reaction against the conservatism and social conformity of the 1950s, and the US government’s extensive military intervention in Vietnam. The youth involved in the popular social aspects of the movement became known as hippies. These groups created a movement toward liberation in society, including the sexual revolution, questioning authority and government, and demanding more freedoms and rights for women and minorities. The Underground Press, a widespread, eclectic collection of newspapers served as a unifying medium for the counterculture. The movement was also marked by the first widespread, socially accepted drug use (including LSD and marijuana) and psychedelic music.”

No I’m not high on drugs but I find the colors and vibe of the 1960s relatable to what I imagine in my final video. Full of randomness. Defying structure. eccentric. This gives an idea for my page layout, reflecting my project theme of the 1960s vibe. Gifs of weird and funny  combined with distracting colors and full of rawness. 

 

Hoping to get submissions to start soon!
