April 2011 Archives



I have been researching some different styles to make this video. I found some useful examples here, the artists in these are all make infography pieces, which I think might be a good way to display my work.

Edward Tufte has been an inspiration for me as well, his teachings about evoking a cognitive sense of meaning and aspiration are what what of my pieces are based upon.

Some of his work.

This is a clip of a video that I am working on about the revolution in Egypt. It's going to be a bunch of Tweets and Facebook comments I have collected since the beginning of the revolution. Not much yet, this is just one idea of where it could go.

I am also working on a different idea with the comments and tweets I have found. I will have the storyboards for those posted in a few days.



I have been doing research on where to find tweets from start of Egypt's revolution till now. I found a pretty good resource online at OR Books.com called Tweets from Tahrir. It's a book that describes Egypt's revolution as it unfolded, in the words of the people who made it.

I will primarily base my project on these tweets, and also on some I have found on my own via Twitter and Facebook.

Screenshot of the book I purchased:

There has been a lot of speculation/thoughts/ideas surrounding the events that have/are taking place in Egypt right now. How can we know what it is like to be in an Egyptians shoes? The truth is, we can't. The project I am doing for my digital studio class is not about trying to describe the events that have been taking place, nor to try to depict an outsider's aspect on what WE think is going through everyone's head in Egypt. My goal is to simply display tweets and posts that I have collected since the start of the revolution.

The medium I will be using is video. I will be constructing images and then bringing them in to Adobe After Effects.

Here is a rough mock-up of one of the images, I haven't decided if I want to do the text in Arabic or English yet. I'm thinking I will do both.
