so this is my first attempt at a gif
i’ve never really bitten into after effects and its 3-d effects stuff so it was a super cool learning experience to make this
first i made a short video clip out of a big ol’ gradient i made in photoshop. in premier i set keyframes for hue angle and rotation and spat out a 10-second clip to after effects. i used the clip as the environment layer and then experimented for a while messing with lights and the material parameters for the text. I made a 3-second clip which went back into premier. I set keyframes for the hue angle again, doubled the speed, and duplicated/reversed the clip so that it would loop. i opened the final movie clip in photoshop and spent a lil while messing with the gif compression so that i could actually upload it. the default was nearly 10mb so yeah i made it little
this was fun and i really wanna make more and start doing glitch art this way

yunjiverse:

So it has been a while since I’ve posted here… I would say about a good month or so. I have been rather busy trying to work on myself and my statement as an artist.

Lately I have been working very closely with SecondLife as a means for me to express myself in a way that is more up my alley… Therefore, here is my revised artist’s statement (which I would love to get some advice on):

Welcome to the Yunjiverse!

image

My name is Yunji Johanning, and I am an interdisciplinary artist currently working with live performance within virtual environments and its interaction with the physical realm. Oftentimes, with my improvisational meta-narratives, I attempt to call into question what it means for something to be considered a part of “actual reality”.

image

Most of my work right now involves mixing traditional theater with projection, incorporating SecondLife as a window into an alternate reality. Within that universe, I deconstruct and remediate buildings or structures from real life to Second Life by turning them into digital artifacts that have no predictable lifespan, and then proceed to populate these spaces with live actors puppeteering avatars in-world in real time in order to interact with live actors in the physical world.

image

When I am not producing shows, I act as an archaeologist of digital experiences collected in Second Life by photographing interactive events as they happen in-world. I am also working toward video capturing these moments and artifacts of my avatar’s autobiographical events before SecondLife fades away forever into the vast sea of ones and zeroes. Through this process, I am attempting at preserving a lost and unnoticed history, taking an archaeological dig into worlds that have long since been abandoned but were made with lots of love and care.

image

I am also interested in exploring social interactions with digital artifacts and territories and the ethics behind how we treat our technologies. This is a line of inquiry I have been curious about for quite some time and would like to have discourse on this subject with others in the near future.

Contact me for more information or if you are interested in collaborating with me! Also feel free to check out: http://kookoonuts.tumblr.com/ to see my Avatar’s history and blog!

Yunji gave an excellent lecture today in my Interactive Culture class about her work with Second Life. Such cool stuff!!!

One thing she said that really stood out to me was that she wants to promote hyperawareness of the harmonious existence of both physical and digital space and I just think that’s SOOOO cool! 

like just the idea of making people hyperaware is awesome and something i strive to do with the idea of responsible media production/consumption online

But also the idea that the online and physical worlds are approaching singularity

so cool. so good
