I had a hard time deciding on how to make my abstract works because I realized that it is harder to do a project abstract than when there are requirements. I also struggled with relating my abstract work with emotion. I did negative emotions on digital work and positive emotions on my hand drawn works.
This is the last digital abstract work I did. While I was doing this I was feeling nervous and anxious about how I will manage finishing all my work for this week and the midterm coming on Thursday morning. I was thinking of making this piece colorful, but I decided that this noisy background would be better for me to express my anxiety.
For this piece, I wanted to express stress. I felt that when it comes to emotion, bold colors such as red and black tend to feel negative. Also, I used the noisy background to also express stress simultaneously with the colors.
I wanted to express how lost I am. I wanted to express this emotion by making the background black. By using different kind of colors, I wanted to show that there are different paths I could take but haven’t decided on which.
I chose my object to my light stand in my room. I am interested and like lighting, so there are a lot of light in my room.
(The learning portfolio says that my video is too large)
I made a video out of photos I took from the beginning of the semester. I wanted to make a video looking back from the summer I first came to New York. However, I made the video in time order for it to be from day to night. I put in sound effects that goes along with the photos I put it.
I made this video by thinking of shifting in places and pictures I took daily. I tried to use a lot of red to emphasize my videos and pictures. I tried to get to know more about premiere by this project; I tried to use various effects. In my video, I used a lot of pictures related to nature, natural sites, and light.
I wanted to tell a story that the New York streets are very busy. I added frames to separate the aspects in time, and the order of the photos are the order of time I took the photos of.
Also, I used a scene to scene transitions to show different sidewalks and backgrounds.
I made recorded sounds from my dorm.
The first box is a texture of the jeans I was wearing.

I’ve always wanted to make a necklace of my own, and the rings were the first idea that came into my head. So I decided to make the necklace out of circles, and then give some points from ring to ring to make it look not so simple.
I had a hard time thinking of how to make a crown. The cardboard wouldn’t bend easily, so I cut many triangles and tried to make it into a circle.
I decided to take pictures of Union Square because I walk past it everyday.
