A different way of seeing comic book SFX: in Dadaist sound poem form!
Ways of seeing
Continuing the theme of eye glasses, I decided to experiment with light in relation to vision. Using some random materials I had in my house (thin wood, old glasses frames and a hot glue gun) I made a funnel shape that reduces the amount of light the eye that enters the eye.
3rd iteration - exploring my idea of troops heading into the congo in order to retrieve the materials necessary for the construction of iPhones.
'FAREWELL creates a rather simple device (which the artist calls the “destructeur”) with wood, hardware and X-Acto blades. Executed in Paris, the destructeur is placed inside of a bus stop’s rotating advertisement, creating a self-shredding device when the ads rotate. Strip Box is not only ingeniously simple, but also strongly imagines a world where advertisements disrupt themselves. '

Finding objects that mark your site | what you could do with them?
John Bock is an interesting German artist, he uses a lot of found objects to create his performance / sculptures.

Hey media people, in this clip Alec talks about his city Winnipeg and how it has influenced his game development. It might give you ideas about how you can look at your site.
For this project you can’t hand in a film or sound file, but before you get to that stage, first you have to be able to articulate your ideas clearly and simply. Can you describe the marks on your location? Can you describe the sound on your location? Can you do a shot script that marks your location? A storyboard? A map?
Design people also might find this interesting if they are interested in spatial design. How can you consider the marks on your site in this way? Or how can you experiment with the marks on your site in this way?
Week 3 - 3-6 DB05 Making marks and marking spaces.
This week we looked at Dada poems and Dada sound works as a way of recording marks on a site.

Dreamlines is a non-linear, interactive visual experience. The user enters one or more words that define the subject of a dream he would like to dream. The system looks in the Web for images related to those words, and takes them as input to generate an ambiguous painting, in perpetual change, where elements fuse into one another, in a process analogous to memory and free association.
