Art from Code: Self-Portrait

When I began working on this assignment, I wanted to create a dynamic and interactive image that reflected a part of my personality while taking inspiration from Paul Klee. I noticed that in Klee’s self-portrait, his face is divided into…

Art from Code: Self-Portrait

I started this project by trying to build a semi-realistic representation of my facial structure. But, after some experimentation I decided that a simple representation would serve the same purpose without the mess of ellipses and triangles. The square with…

Art from Code: Self-Portrait

When I began this project I was unclear about how I wanted to represent myself. As I started the coding I realized I wanted to use unrealistic colors rather than conventional skin tones. Initially the hair was a basic arc…

Art from Code: Self-Portrait

I should start by saying when we were assigned this project I wanted to throw up a little bit. I was still trying to figure out how to open Atom correctly, and now I had to code a self portrait?…

Art from Code: Self-Portrait

For this project, I set out to make basically a face with a random assortment of facial features all around the screed (inside and outside the face). However I became a more interested in just using tons and tons of…

Art from Code: Self-Portrait

Before creating my self-portrait I never considered myself an artist in any dimension or medium. However, as the end of my first month in Art From Code quickly approaches, I’ve found a budding appreciation for abstract artists and art not…

Art from Code: Self-Portrait

       When we first got this assignment, all I could think of is how difficult it is to sum up a person in one image. I knew that I wanted to go for both a literal and an…

Art from Code: Self-Portrait

Before I put anything down on the page or in Atom, I knew that I wanted to have a basic face for my self portrait, and (since color is very intriguing and important to me) I wanted to have three…

Art from Code: Self Portrait

Gabriel Eng To generate an idea of how I wanted to approach this assignment, I first glanced through the examples posted on the shared google drive.  At first, it was just to figure out a template for my code but…

Mapping the Invisible: Self-Portrait — Self-Planet Map

My planetary self portrait isn’t looking so barren anymore.  It’s now more of a goofy collage than anything else, but progress is progress.  One thing that could be tweaked, in addition to the rough edges on the photo clippings and…

Mapping the Invisible: Self-Portrait — A Map of Depression

My self-portrait is a map of my depression, using a collage-based approach with text pulled from my own poetic writing and physically-linked symbols. My initial brainstorm was closer to my final product, with an idea of spatialization based on my…

Mapping the Invisible: Self Portrait Postmortem — A Map of Love Creek

Here are some photos of the last part of my self portrait map. As It was hard to photograph my map on the wall, I included a detail that gives a better sense of what it looks like up close,…

Mapping the Invisible: Self-Portrait — The Self as an Idea

This finalized version of my self portrait is the culmination and self-exploration of my thoughts and emotions. Initially, I felt the need to bracket my experiences and my personality by temporally and spatially binding it. I at first thought, how…

Mapping the Invisible: Self-Portrait Draft #2 — A Map of Bella

I started with the three points that are geographically located: London, Buenos Aires, and New York. The placement is where these three cities actually fall on the map. I planned to use concentric circles to show the impact these cities…

Mapping the Invisible: Self Portrait Draft #2 — An Accumulation of Lucas’ Profile Pictures

For the second draft of my self portrait, I primarily focused on the visual aesthetics of the map that needed to be better fleshed out. To start, I wanted to see what it would look like if I included outlines of my body,…

Mapping the Invisible: Self Portrait Draft #2 — A Map of the Gaze

   The first draft I made of this map played on a different concept with a similar execution. I was still trying to express an invisible phenomenon through the use of thermograph-esque color spots, each shade in a spectrum representing…

Mapping the Invisible: Self-Portrait Draft #2 — A Map of Emotional Movement

In this second draft of my self-portrait, I wanted to continue with the idea that the two places I have lived (New York and New Jersey) have had different (but equal) influences on me. However, with the help of crit…

Mapping the Invisible: Self-Portrait Draft #2 — A Map of Projecting Considered Experiences

While conceptualizing my second iteration of my map, I chose to focus on the way in which idea/memories are filtered, curated, and relegated into the projecting ones decisions into the future. The way in which, one reflects or applies hindsight…

   My Relationships to My Relationships (In final draft stages of Part 2) In my second draft, I changed many aspects of my original “self-portrait”; after my meeting with Angela, I came to terms with the fact that my original…
