Artwork title: Waves of daily life

This work is based on a project that visualises sound. The element I adopted to visualise sound is the waves of an infinitely flowing sea. Waves are unpredictable, show different shapes each time, and flow endlessly in an undetermined direction. The appearance of these waves resembles the time humans have and the sounds that occur endlessly around them. When I visualise the waves, I designed the particles in the artificial waves to react to the sound I recorded myself. The wave of waves moves in the direction of the set value, and the particles of the wave are set to respond more strongly to the lowest and highest sounds of the sound.

This work is an opening sequence that reinterprets the meaning of "Tension" as my theme. In this Opening Sequence production project, I wanted to shoot a video where tension and fun can coexist. The tension that I express in my work can provide an element for the audience to immerse themselves in the video, and the pleasantness can be used to arouse the audience's interest in the video. While doing this project, I experimented with the shot's composition, colour and sound elements. In order to expose the sense of instability of the screen while maintaining the change and repeatability of the overall scene, the shooting composition was shot with a change and repetitive composition from a high position to a lower position and then to a higher position again. Overall, close-up shots and slow-motion techniques were mainly used so that viewers could be more immersed in the tension shown on the screen. Furthermore, I experimented with using the surrounding objects as elements to destroy the stable composition on the screen. Overall, in the case of colour, warm and calm colours, opposite to tension, were used to give a heterogeneous and comfortable feeling. When producing the piece's sound, I used existing music and the sound I recorded and produced myself. I recorded all the sounds that can be used as living noise and effects. I wanted to use background music for the video with a pleasant and mysterious feel, so I used "Hide and Seek 2," which is prevalent in broadcasting and media in Korea. The video's title was "Broken dishes and Me" to indirectly expose and intentionally hide the meaning of the jinx.

Hello, I am Yunjae Song, studying Media Art at UNSW. While working on several projects, I continue to work on experimental and challenging work rather than stable and familiar work. I am an ordinary designer who collects failures and enjoys them.
