Beginning with each designer's concept sketches and descriptions, our team invested a significant amount of time and effort into the meticulous task of comprehending them. Our overarching concept of "morii" guided this process, as we aimed to extract key words and identify potential research directions. This collaborative effort allowed us to delve deeper into the essence of "morii," exploring its diverse facets and possibilities.
Our team then explored various methods for capturing and altering photographic imagery. We delved into the realm of post-editing, experimenting with techniques that intentionally lose information, creating intriguing visual effects. Additionally, we dabbled in "inaccurate" captures through 3D scans and long exposure warping, adding a touch of unpredictability to our creative process. Each team member delved into possibilities within the medium that aligned with their specific outcome. The collaborative effort resulted in a diverse range of approaches, each contributing to the overarching concept of "morii" in their own unique way.
We also delved into visual motifs within the UI of capturing devices for the website and motion components. Shutters, timers, focus control, menu selectors, grid lines...
What better way to tap into emotions like nostalgia than through your own camera roll?
Our team created a collective Drive folder, where everyone could dump their ambiguously eventful photos. This treasure trove of memories would serve as a valuable library of assets for future explorations. Using the key words we had compiled for each individual line, we decided to piece together a representation of someone else's fleeting memory.
