The idea was to create a projection that can manipulate a structure to display a scene of natural landscape. I wanted to play on the idea of being able to give a natural landscape back to the man-made environment of my choosing.
My initial idea was to create a visual piece that narrates the historical content of an iconic structure. I used projection mapping as a medium to display my piece as I wanted the project to have a significant amount of depth whilst creating a unique but aesthetically pleasing experience for the audience. To create the visuals for my piece I used an extensive amount of research into the architectural structure’s history and then refined this research to create a well-thought out narrative that represents the building’s history from its very creation up to the present day.
Using one of the voice clips given by the RSA we created an animation that coincided with the subject of conversation, focusing mainly on being able to illustrate the point of the topic to our audience using our illustrations.

For this project I created a projection mapping installation. I based the narrative of the projection on a current affair that had been circulating within the news at the time of the project. Throughout the piece I used actual content, including video footage from situations and locations that have recently been involved with the processes and aftermath fracking has created.
This project explored the different designs you could create using a reinvented version of the original 'Zoetrope', the 'Phonotrope which was created by Jim Le Fevre. I wanted to use real photos within my design so I exported frames from different time-lapse sequences and used these stills as the basis for my pieces.

Me and a colleague were commissioned by the Western Outreach Network (W.O.N) to create a piece of animation that outlines the main advantages of attending higher education. We created a fast-paced, fun and colourful piece with he end goal of being able to encourage teenagers of the target age group to think about attending higher education.
I was given the task of creating an animation based on a news story, whether it be published or self-recognised. I based the animation on the processes one goes through to create a coffee for a customer, by using narration from interviews I had gathered throughout my field research. This project gave me the chance to step outside my comfort zone and experiment with a more traditional form of motion graphics using hand drawn frame-by-frame animation.
I used this project as a small case study for another much larger task. The purpose of it was to be able to view my selected buildings within a wireframe 3-dimensional space using isometric grids to do so.
This project's sole purpose was to heighten my skills within animation software, but it also gave me the chance to experiment with dissecting already made collages and use motion to bring them to life.
This piece was an experimentation using projection mapping to create short stings that highlighted a buildings current purpose.
