Jens Ideation

Expanding on my machine theme I added a component of Man vs. Machine

I was thinking partners could take turns either playing as the person on the course, or by being in the control room using motion sensing controls to manipulate Machine arms and Translating Audio to control the machine face ominously suspended above the finish. I was thinking of using the basic layout seen on the 2nd page, using the suspended machine face on the bottom right of the first page.

Jens, it's great to see you worked on this since class, plus you're the first one to post your work. I like where this is headed with your Man vs Machine theme. I'd like to see what you can do by making the face more machine. Take a look at Iron Giant and Robots. For the movie Robots look at how they handled shape design, also check out the big door they did for that movie. I like the thinking you have going, but I feel the face you have now, begins to push your piece toward horror and away from your Man vs Machine theme. I think the layout you have on the second page is working fine. I also really like the idea of having another person controlling the course, just make sure the course is working the way you want it first. If you have any questions about this don't hesitate to get in touch.
