Texture in 3d created by a variety of materials
Studio and Homework A (due next week): Texture Claymation
In class, you are to create 2 texture cubes. All sides of your cube should have some sort of texture and the two cubes should be made of opposing textures (rough vs smooth for example).
Using your phone camera and a simple backdrop (black or neutral paper sheets) you will take between 30-45 photos of your cubes approaching eachother, colliding, and then creating a third type of texture or combination of textures.
These images will be imported into IMovie, Photoshop, or any other stop motion animation software to create a 1-2 minute claymation.
and if you have made it this far ….
Texture Homework B (due week 8): Soap Carving
You will each be given a paper bag with a small object inside the bag. Without looking at the object you are to feel the surface of the object paying close attention to the textures and shapes. To the best of your ability, carve down one bar of soap to replicate the unknown object in the bag. Pay attention to scale, proportions and textures.
After you have completed your blind carving, you will then take the object out of the bag and carve your second bar of soap to make an exact replica of your object.
This time, you are to document the process through stop motion. After you have perfected the carving process and recreated the object, think about ways to continue its transformation. Add water, burn it, etc. Record this process into your stop motion. These should be emailed to me before class next week or brought in on a usb drive.
