Week10 – Final Project Proposal

I always wanted to make portrait image with programming. Because there is something I can’t do with photography or video skills. (Actually I can do it manually but it needs too much effort to make this work as good as programming)

This work is wall media art which uses camera to get viewer’s portrait. With this portrait, this work manipulates images like tapestry. It mixes two or more images by weaving images section by section.

Since NYC is city of many people, cars and skyscrapers with noisy artificial sounds, I’m going to use images of nature to mix with portraits. To bring up the concept that we humans are part of the nature, not the city itself.
