Alumni Siri McCormick has recently been working on a project with Cam Christiansen from Anlanda Digital Studio making costumes for Cam’s newest animation project. The catch, visit this the costumes aren’t visible in the final project. Cam uses green screens to create digitally animated video. Actors then come in, this site are filmed, the green background is then taken out of the frame digitally and replaced with another background that is either filmed or drawn digitally. But what if you could replace more than just the background? How could you replace some of the props? Paint. How could you replace the actors outfits? Enter Siri, who has made outfits in the specific shade of blue and green which allows Cam to go in post production and replace the clothing with some wild animated patterns. The end result…

Alumni Samantha Reed is taking her Masters degree in Glasgow at the Glasgow school of art. She was kind enough to send us a quick update on what the program is like and how the weather stacks up to Calgary. (above is a picture of Sam -left- with her model from artaWEARness last year).

Sorry it has been so long without and update. The program has kept me nice and busy! Everything is going really well. Learning TONS and love Glasgow. Do miss the sun and everyone from home now and then!

We started off the first month of the program doing current market and historical research. From the material gathered we had to pick 10 themes/images to carry forward. We then started 2-D drawing and colour work based off the images/themes. One of my images is tartan so I have been abstracting and combining different patterns using a variety of mediums. Tons and tons of drawing! We had a 3-day figure drawing course from Camilla Dixon, visit this site
who taught at St Martins. She had us using a variety of mediums to exagerate the body for fashion drawings. She started with the basics and had us all producing nice drawings by the end of the 3 days. All of her illustrations are done in collage using magazines as textures for the fabrics. They were amazing. Hopefully she will be coming back to do a workshop on collage next semester.

The past two weeks we have started placing our drawings and paperwork on the mannequin to play with scale, doctor
pattern and communicate our ideas. Have also been researching different layouts for the Design Process Porfolio. For our portfolio we have to put together a book showing our research and design process. I am going to get an extra one printed to send over, viagra dosage
it is Due Dec 18, so will send it after X-Mas holidays (not coming home for x-mas, visiting my cousins and going skiing in Spain). If anyone is interested in the program it might give a better idea of what happens in the first stage. When we come back from Christmas pattern drafting and fabric sampling starts!

Am really enjoying the course, if you have anyone that is interested in the program, I would strongly reccomend it so far. Will be in touch, say Hi to everyone

New Works, Alumni – Angela Silver

Snapshot!ACAD alumni Angela Silver (2006 grad) presents Tercet at the 2009 D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival on in New York from Sept. 25th to Sept. 27th.
Throughout the streets, health Angela Silver questions meaning in contemporary experience by usurping the ubiquitous traffic sign system and replacing the text with multi-lingual poetics.

D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival, a three-day multi-site neighborhood-wide event is a one-of-a-kind art happening: where serendipity meets the haphazard and where the unpredictable, spontaneous and downright weird thrive. The now teenage D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival® presents touchable, accessible, and interactive art, on a scale that makes it the nation’s largest urban forum for experimental art.

Art Under the Bridge is an opportunity for young artists to use any medium imaginable to create temporary projects on-the-spot everywhere and anywhere, completely transforming the Dumbo section of Brooklyn, New York, into a vibrant platform for self-expression. In addition to the 80+ projects throughout the historical post-industrial waterfront span, visitors can tour local artists’ studios or check out the indoor video_dumbo, a non-stop program of cutting-edge video art from New York City and around the world.

The immediacy of the event means many artists reflect on current issues: among others, the rise of technology, recession blues, homelessness and environmental concerns.
