18/10/16 New Groups II. Tone and Composition

Today after presenting our character designs we sorted into new groups. I’ve joined a group with Viola, David and Jessica who I was in my first team with. We have been assigned to a really interesting idea or a Synapsis World. Viola was the remaining team member from the last set of groups and she explained to us the idea behind her world, it’s a world inside a brain (owner has not yet been identified). The characters of the world are the neurons in the brain, they make connections with other nuerons and create light, the light could possibly represent the mood the owner of the brain is experiencing. The nuerons communicate through sound, these characters do not necessarily have a dialogue but are just responsive to each other like a tree is responsive to sunlight.

Synapse
noun
  1. a junction between two nerve cells, consisting of a minute gap across which impulses pass by diffusion of a neurotransmitter.

Nerve Cell

Types of Neurons (Nerve Cells) The human body is made up of trillions of cells. Cells of the nervous system, called nerve cells or neurons, are specialised to carry “messages” through an electrochemical process. The human brain has approximately 100 billion neurons.

Today Conánn set us the task on exploring tone and composition this week, preferably with a range five shades from white to black. He suggested we try light experimentation, perspectives and to consider the rule of 3rds. Note to self: Put everything in a frame!
