the primary subject of Day 1 is to draw up my own manifesto, and it was painful to me because I felt the less words, the more conceptual then I would need to explain more clearly with words, however the more words, the more complexing the manifesto would be. So first I chose to make a bit long manifesto: White space is essential to make something brand new.It does not mean that white space erase but white space cover beneath the secrets and generate new facts because white space is good to be willing to accept everything.White space also can be measured. Sometimes it seems include numbers or figures itself. White space suggests that it have something to do with numbers and figures.
According to the manifesto, I started to collect ideas relating to it. In terms of first statement, it occurs to me the moment when an egg gets scrambled. Yellow part gets mixed with white part and white part disappears once yellow part starts to overflow. Then I take it that white space (white part) could accept external things. Although white space does not have no emotion, but I think white space is willing to accept whatever and it does not mean that external space can control white space.
some people think white space is negative space as you can see margins on magazines or papers, however I disagree this point of view, and white space acts to cooperate.
In terms of the second statement, you could see the examples like price tags, clocks, measure and so on. There are exceptions for sure, but mostly number and figures have strong connection to white space. So I had thought that people might make out what numbers and figures represent depending on white space. In other words, people white might see white space including numbers and figures.
Today, on 10 Nov, I have a group tutorial, as a result of the discussion, I realised that my manifesto was so profound and complexing that it was not suitable for one week project. Therefore I ended up simplified my manifesto and i focus on the first statement. Here is the new one: White space is an universal acceptor.
Thinking which way is better or suitable to express my concept, I chose to take a short film. Originally I would not make ones with sound because sounds appeal to hearing and I wanted the audience to use only their visions.
As for material and skill, I used eggs and milk, and I wanted to take a film of a situation where milk spreads away and covers beneath the secret.
I got started to take a film, and I was thinking of duration of film and how to switch frames, and after consideration, I decided to make one like commercial clips come before movies you are going to watch on youtube. and I also decided to put sounds effect to make the film meaningful. sometimes sounds can diminish films themselves and I needed to pay attention not to destroy.
