Am | E | G | D
My heart beats faster
when we’re on the ground
When you’re not around
C | E | G | D
You’re almost twenty and there is no doubt
Am | E | G | D
That you have already got it
Half figured out
I’m a huge foodie- food gives me excitement.
This is the beginning of an average day in my life.
Image on an iPhone is instant and can represent a visual appearance, which is a crucial part of the food experience.
Picture 2(study desk):
I’m a student a messy one.
I study daily
There is a lot going on in the image. As images are not moving it allows the viewer to spend more time viewing the one scene and as there is a lot there that is important to understanding who I am.
This is my happy place where I go to at any chance I get …alone or with important people in my life
Images can bring another angle to the way we see things. It allows us to consider the smaller things by viewing things from another point of view.
Picture 4 (bed):
My other happy place
The last and first part of my day.
Images allow me to explore still moments. Moment that have no sound no movement. A picture can perfectly allow me to express this.
Audio 1 (dad):
It expresses my culture. (Greek and food oriented)
Language is understood through the audio. As my family speak both Greek and English I wanted this to be the focus. The audio allowed me to eliminate other distractions through visuals and focus purely on voice.
Audio 2 (me and ted):
Music is part of me, my upbringing and my past, present and future self
Voice portrays emotion and feeling.
By recording a creative process it allows the focus to be on the instruments and lyrics. This allows for evaluation.
Video 1 (coming home):
A crucial part of every evening
Seeing mum… her always being there for me
A video allows both the visual (of home), sound (walking up stairs and voice) to work together to create greater meaning and understanding.
Exercising is part of every day for me
Video image allows for a sense of movement and places an emphasis on context.
An image could not capture the intensity that the audio of the breathing could. Just as the audio couldn’t capture the surrounding of which I am running in. Both audio and visuals provide different ways of understanding. Together they can explore a concept through the mix of audio and moving visual.
Text (lyrics and chords):
I write my own music. I sing it, play it, and create it.
You aren’t given visuals or sounds this allows for individual interpretation. That is why I chose lyrics. Text can also have other purposes but in this case it is open to interpretation.
