I am a second year Digital Futures undergrad student at OCAD University based in Toronto. I enjoy exploring new software and building skills to create unique experimental projects. I try to push the boundaries of my ability and aim to expand my skill set through these projects.

 

CASTING THE MODELS

In order to begin the digital modification that I intended to do, I had to first cast the models of my body parts, my lips and hand as pictured above, and use photogrammetry to convert them into a digital form. For the model of the lips, I actually used a laser scanner, which made the model a lot more detailed. I ended up using the model of my mouth in my next two projects.

 

 

 

SOUNDING BODY PROJECT

 

2 1

 

My vision for this project was to have facial recognition move the model of the mouth so it appears as though it is speaking along with the viewer. My process was as followed:

I first separated the mouth into the top and bottom lip with zBrush. I then exported them as separate OBJs and imported them into touch designer.

3

Here I made the mouth move using faceOSC so it will move around with your mouth and play a sound when you open it.

4

I was struggling to get textures to work here

5

I added a pulsing effect to the mouth

6

After A LOT of trial and error, I realized I was missing the texture operator which was making adding a texture difficult.

Fixed textures

Played around with PHONG operator, changed lighting and effects

(EX)CHANGING SOUNDING BODY PROJECT

Part two of this series was to make another interactive experience using body parts. This time, I worked with my friend Sulim Lee and we did the project together using models of my lips and her hand.

Since we had a model of Sulim’s hand doing a finger heart and a model of my mouth, we decided it could portray a theme of love. We had 3 hands rotating upon pressing a key on the keyboard, and when all three are pressed, a mouth will appear and say “I love you” in Korean (사랑해요), as the finger heart is a famous symbol of love in Korea.

Our use of a foreign language was intended to show that although we may have different words that express love, the expression of love itself is universally understandable. Although the viewer may not understand what the voice is saying, the imagery and symbols in the piece still relay to the user that this is about “love”.

Test hologram

We decided to do a 3D DIY hologram before we built a bigger version. We started by building a prototype for a smartphone, which was (1cmx5cmx8cm).

13

After we made the 3D DIY prototype successfully we decided to make a hologram pyramid for computer monitor size. So we bought Acrylic from the plastic shop and laser cut it as the dimension on .ai file.

14

This is what the monitor version looked like. It was not what we expected or hoped but it worked somewhat. We ended up liking the smaller mobile version more.

This is our touch design setup.

Motivation and Goal

Since we had a model of Sulim’s hand doing a finger heart and a model of Ramsha’s mouth, we decided it could portray a theme of love. We are going to have 3 hands rotating upon pressing a key on the keyboard, and when all three are pressed, a mouth will appear and say “I love you” in Korean (사랑해요), as the finger heart is a famous symbol of love in Korea.

  • We will create this assignment using Touch Designer.
  • We will be using a 3D obj file of Sulim’s hand and Ramsha’s lips.
  • We are going to project a 3D hologram using a smartphone or tablet and use a piece made of acrylic to display the hologram.

 

Preparation

Ramsha will be handling creating the base in Touch Designer, which will be making the hands rotate and the mouth move as well as handling the audio.

Sulim will be making the acrylic projection piece needed to project the image from a smartphone or tablet. She will also be editing the file so that it is in the correct mirrored format so that it can be displayed accurately in hologram form.

Summary

 We are currently figuring out how to have the hands rotate upon command. The hands were easily assignable to a key, however, we were having trouble getting the mouth to appear when all three keys are pressed simultaneously. We are also having trouble figuring out how to get certain objects to move in the way we want, so we will still be working on that.

 

What is left to do is to format it in the correct mirrored form and to create the acrylic piece for hologram projection.

Summary paragraph:

I created two body casts for this assignment. I cast a model of my hand and my mouth using alginate and plaster. I had a bit of trouble with the hand cast, as when I tried to take it out, I severed the fingers from the rest of the hand within the cast so it came out broken. I had an easier time casting my mouth as it was molded and could be removed relatively easily.

Work in progress:

I am currently still figuring out what exactly I want to do and how I will do it and am still not decided on what sound to use. I also still need to convert the .stl to an .obj, although that will only take a minute. I am planning on doing this on touch designer.

 

Work left to complete:

I currently have the body part cast and scanned so all that is left to do is create the finished product. I am planning on possibly rigging the mouth or separating the lips and animating them in touch designer and linking it to face OSC to replay a sound, similar to a previous project I have done. I may also add other effects to the finished project.

WHAT IS IT?

Out of the several books we could choose from, we decided to choose a book titled Canadian Film Awards. Using the book as context and reference, we decided to create a film related trivia/race game. Our goal was to create a game based around a film mentioned in the book, specifically Terry Fox in our case. We put together a game in which 3 users are on a race track as Terry Fox, and must answer several film related questions in order to progress and eventually win the race. The players must answer correctly in order to advance. If they answer a question incorrectly, they will remain stagnant. Once a player answers enough questions correctly in the shortest amount of time, they will cross the finish line and win the game.
