Photography – Week 19

FINAL PROJECT SONG:¬†Settle Down by Gentle Bones FINAL IMAGE: This song talks about the dynamics between two people, how one of them is desperately trying to cling on to their relationship while the other has already grown cold. It reminded me of my best friend and I, which is why I decided to use it…

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…

PROJECT 2

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…

PROJECT 1

SEOH YI ZHEN (0328497) ASSIGNMENT 1 – POINTS AND LINES Point: Indicates the position of space. Line: The extension of a point which shows length, direction and position. In order for us to better understand these two basic architecture elements, we were given the following practice to do in our sketchbooks. SKETCHES: FINAL OUTCOME: It…

CTX – Week 19

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…

Photography – Week 16 & 17

FINAL PROJECT (PROGRESS) Mr Martin, I’m really too broke right now to buy you anything other than Nescafe. So during my consultation with Mr Martin in Week 16, he told me that there was still something missing from my design. Like it was almost there, but not quite. He wanted me to add another visual…

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…

Photography – Week 14 & 15

FINAL ASSIGNMENT (PROGRESS) After realizing that my previous song didn’t really fit the image that I had in mind for my final project, I decided to change it to this one instead. Again, this song is very much a love song, but I feel like the lyrics describe me and my best friend quite accurately….
