Project Update #3 – The Psychedelic Experience for the artist (Me)

I imagined the video to be full of randomness with a vibe of the 1960s and what more than to relate to forms and textures that represents the 1960s.
1) The swirly mind-boggling patterns

2) The weird dreamy feeling of instability

3) Colours that are appalling

4) Cartoons/artworks/fashion/1960s culture

Hence this experience as an artist should be translated to the video that is being submitted to me as it will add another layer of this psychedelic interpretation of the video.

AUDIO-VISUAL Experience

I was thinking of also infusing the audio spectrum/waveform of the song "Tomorrow Never Knows" into the final video incorporating the audio interpretation of the participants in a visual form.

I even added effects in Adobe after effects to create weird  circular repetitive patterns using mirror, bulge,distort,repetitive tiles etc.

#3 Project Hyper essay-Role of the viewer

 

In this experiment, users will be given a set of music to listen while closing their eyes. To the beat of the music, they are free to move their whole body to react to the music. their sessions will be recorded through skype and a compiled video will be infused together with an audio spectrum effect in After effects in a psychedelic presentation.

Aim of the experiment:

provide an auditary experience to the viewer in a state of semi-consciousness while interacting with a camera(Skype session). Will the camera in front of them restrict them from this experience? I would like to infuse this experience of freedom from the known (inspired from the book of the dead) and direct them to a specific task eg raising their hands etc and see if they can respond to it. I will give them a choice to either respond to the task or immerse in the audio experience.

Role of the viewer:

The viewer interacts with this audio space while being semi aware of the virtual space he/she is presenting while being in the real space. Giving directions in such a space can be confusing but fun at the same time and see how the audience interact.
