Senior Thesis Exhibition Sketch

Filed under: BFA Senior Thesis — Mia @ 1:27 am

Waterwheels is a series of six acrylic flip boxes with corresponding fabric panels. Each panel consists of a photograph that is printed on cotton and backlit by programmed LEDs. The LED sequence suggests falling water as an audio track of waterfall sounds plays on a project iPod.

LED Pattern Design

I’m testing LED patterns that simulate falling water before I program panel Arduino microcontrollers. I drew the patterns on Illustrator layers, animated the layers in Photoshop, then exported the file as an animated GIF.

BFA Thesis Show Logo and Gallery Card Designs

Filed under: BFA Senior Thesis — Mia @ 9:38 am

This is our class letterhead logo, and the gallery card that went to print early Friday morning. We chose GotPrint for our 2500 cards. Sixteen of us who are in the show will also design individual announcement cards. The show title comes from a song that a classmate, Tommy Laird, wrote for us. The abstract phrase references artist building tools.

The same logo that was in the previous image now has the show title name below the small circle that can fit onto a letterhead.

Overlapping orange and gold lines swirl through a circular gallery card, creating negative space that is in the shape of a hammer.  The  brown show title, Tangle & Hammer, is angled in the hammer handle.

The show information and sponsor logos are on the back of the show announcement card.
