<layered, hybrid, zeal>
I overlapped bright samba influenced colors to provide the vibe of Southern Exposure. I wanted my poster to feel very contemporary and fresh because this is Christian Howe's latest album just released in 2013. Because this particular album was such an innovative collaboration, I created this hybrid transformer figure made up of instruments that represent the members of the group. The idea is that they all come together to create this new zeal jazz that hasn't happened before. My goal was to create a design that reflects that sound in a visual way.
elegant, organic, structure
Designed with an emphasis on Gertrude's lack of structure in her language, I used sentence diagramming to reveal her stream of consciousness. While the book is laid out in a very user friendly way; the reader will struggle between Gertrude's organic style of writing and my systematic structured design. Through that struggle, my goal is that the reader will eventually notice her heavy use of conjunctions, sentence fragments, and prepositional phrases.

With this potential "sound file", I would just use pieces without lyrics.
So I got stuck on at the end of the first animation because I don't know how to get all of the objects to move together, without messing up previous null objects at the beginning. I figured someone could help me with this during class. But there aren't any other motions I need for the video once I figure out how to fix that one spot. Then the second animation would be the end of the first one. So I'll put them together eventually. Although this may not be the most beautiful animation, overall I'm starting to feel a lot more comfortable in After Effects! So once I get these "rough" animations down, maybe they will be start to be asethically pleasing as well.
