Final major project research - The Bomb
Updated: Apr 1
For the final major project I want to create a sort of visual experience for some Global issue. I started by making a mindmap of the global issues that interest me. I wanted to go quite deep and specific with the sort of issue I choose. I also need to make sure that I am true to that issue.
From this, I like the idea of shark fishing, Salmon, Cotton buds and fake news. However I have a problem with doing this project about sharks because I have a shark phobia. I think that by doing research on the other topics that I like I will be able to see which one has the most information/ video footage.
For the actual outcome of the project, I started to research visual experiences and one that really stands out is http://thebombnow.com/ . It is a movie projection and music festival experience. They have shown/played this installation at many music festivals. I really like how entertaining it is by including a rock band in the experience, yet the message is quite scary as it talks about nuclear bombs. I watched the movie online that is usually shown on massive screens that are arranged in a circle to create an interactive atmosphere. These are some screenshots from the movie:
This is a picture from the actual experience from their website:
