PROJECT 3

SEOH YI ZHEN (0328497) For our final project, we had to create an urban landscape with a specific function, based on research studies and the application of design elements we have learnt so far. RESEARCH: Bubble diagram of my urban landscape, that is a stargazing park.       Above are the pictures that inspired…

SEOH YI ZHEN (0328497) ASSIGNMENT 1 – HUMAN AND URBAN LANDSCAPE 6 keywords that relate to human and urban landscape. BASIC RESEARCH: We explored the heart of KL to look for elements that related to the six keywords.     FINAL OUTCOME: A collage of photos taken in KL that reflects what was observed during…

FINAL REFLECTION When I decided to jump from the Science stream to Arts, I freaked out and panicked and hyperventilated every single day after submitting my enrollment form. Joining a design school for me meant giving up my JPA scholarship (goodbye free degree), and facing judgement from literally everyone around me. I gave up so…

CTX – Week 18

REFLECTION (FINAL PROJECT) Where to begin. (You should probably know that my thoughts are just free-flowing right now, and I probably won’t edit them later. Designing spontaneous moments right?) The entire point of us filming this video was to find out how good design lecturers are at expecting the unexpected. Well, guess what? They’re pretty…

Photography – Week 18

STUDIO LIGHTING PRACTICE For our final studio practice, we were split into groups of four to imitate different lighting styles. We experimented with different combinations of spotlight, hard light and soft light in order to be as similar to the reference picture as possible. The second photo was really hard to imitate. In the end,…

CTX – Week 17

VICTIM #3: MR ERNESTO I really, really want to write what I feel about his reaction, but I’m trying my best to suppress it because everything is supposed to be a surprise blah blah. So I’ll talk about our juniors, instead. I actually think they hate us now. Exhibit A: We completely embarrassed ourselves in…

CTX – Week 16

Let’s just say that we pretty much abandoned the plan and winged everything after Mr Charles’ prank. VICTIM #1: MR CHARLES I think his surprise was the most extreme out of all of them. We made sure to make his prank extra special, because he made it very clear last semester that there wasn’t much…

CTX – Week 15

PLANNING & PROGRESS UPDATE Two words. Flower. Masks. I can’t believe we’re actually doing this, but it was unanimously agreed upon by everyone in the group. All of us felt that the flower masks were so bizarre that no one with a single ounce of sanity would see it coming. The idea actually came from…

CTX – Week 13 & 14

FINAL PROJECT PROPOSAL As our final project is fully self-directed, we had to write our own proposal for our video, including the objective, problem statement and the general plan on how we were to go about the entire thing. It took us a while to actually get it done, because we were kind of lost…

Photography – Week 12 & 13

ASSIGNMENT 4 – INTERIOR PHOTOGRAPHY F-stop: f/4.5 Shutter Speed: 1/100s ISO: 200 Cute cafe decor is cute. Featuring Jun Wei’s wallet because he put it there and I was too lazy to move it. I swear natural lighting is the best thing that will ever exist on this planet. F-stop: f/5 Shutter Speed: 1/100s ISO:…

CTX – Week 12

This week, we met with Mr Charles to discuss our final project. It was pretty fun because he actually gave us a lot of new ideas on how to make our video more interesting. So now instead of a documentary, my group is going to come up with a prank video. This’ll either be really…
