For my final design, I have changed the typefaces, this is because the previous ones that I had don’t really work as good as I want them to work. I have used 3 typefaces in and they are Archer Bold that I have used for Connected. This is a serif font that still has character even though it’s not what it as looking for before. I don’t think I need a type that is actually connected as the word illustrates that in its own way. I have chosen it in bold as I believe it resembles bulk and togetherness, being connected makes you bigger and able to grow. For Isolated I have chosen Akkurat light as it is a serif font and very slender resembling the opposites feel than an archer, but they work well together as a collective. The other type I have used is Adelle sans, this for anything else or than the words. Here are some frames of my animation in a slideshow below.
We did have some technical problems as they processing program did into like the size of my file so did cut a few images that’s what might make a little bit jerky but overall its look nice in the environment. I will have to leave it for now but for the exhibition, I will have to find a way to make it run smooth. So all these little problems take so much time to resolve that you sometimes can’t fully achieve what you want but you to learn to just say … its as good as it can be at this moment in time.
My final exhibition space is all about making feel isolated away from everything else, making you concentrate on the things around you. It is not about answering a question just making you work things out yourself, give you control to explore and make your own choice. Do you connect or isolate yourself?
This project I have designed an interactive animation that focuses on how connected or isolated we are as people. Concentrating my attention on digital technology and giving you the opportunity to control and reflect on your own opinions regarding this issue.
Does digital technology make you more isolated or connected? We use touch massively in the way we communicate, mostly using our phones. Incorporating this interaction into my project was key to transferring the familiar use of touch into a different situation.
I am not saying digital technology isolates or creates connections. It has been designed that each person will interactive differently, therefore it is up to the individual to make there mind up and question their beliefs. My exhibition space has been designed to isolate you away from the surrounding area to help you focus on the screen and to challenge your senses. Its all about you reacting in a connective way or isolated way towards the experience.
The circles are a mockup of the Vynl that will be up for the show. I did place them in a way that you can see something from all angles of the room that might make you intrigued by the experience.
Once i have the the proper vynial up i will take a video to place on my webiste to shwo evryone how it works.
