When I started this project, I planned to give users a hands-on experience, similar to I Spy computer games I’d play as a kid. The worlds in these games felt very genuine, even though they existed within a computer screen. This is why I chose to use photos I'd taken to make this project physical, interactive, and fun.
How it works:
- If the mouse is over the sun, the screen is lightened. - If the mouse is clicked and dragged, smaller photos of the dog appear and move in accordance to the mouse's coordinates. - When the mouse clicks on the blanket, the program iterates through photos of fish. - When the mouse clicks on the body of the large dog, it changes colors (the program iterates through photos of the dog which I altered using Photoshop's replace color tool).

Project for Electronic Media Studio: Introduction to Interactivity Our class rotoscoped Eadweard Muybridge's original animated photo sequence of a camel running using Photoshop. The body and the background are separate videos made into GIFs. After, TIFs were taken from both and put in each layer.

Birds that caught my eye and the girl captivated by them. Filmed with iPhone 6, edited in Premiere.
This is a collection of dead insects that I planned to put in a shadow box. Instead, I struck a match and transformed them in a different way. Created with Premiere.
