Odi et Amo (Final Project Proposal)

I will be doing a joint final project for my Visual Music and Animals, et al classes.  I am basing the project on Catullus 85, a love poem by the Roman poet Catullus to his mistress Lesbia:

Odi et amo. Quare id faciam, fortasse requiris.
Nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior.

English translation:

I hate and I love. Why I do this, perhaps you ask.
I do not know, but I sense that it is happening and I am tortured.

Used in a different context, this could easily be the lyrics for an Emo track or a Britney Spears track penned by a Swede.

I will be creating an Avant-Pop deconstructed karaoke audio and video track based on the poem.  The video will feature AMO and ODI, two mascot characters I have created based on my exploration with Kaomoji (Japanese emoticons/ASCII art)  and The Cute (Kawaisa).  Together with vocalist JC Cassis, I will perform with the track at the Visual Music class show at ISSUE Project Room on April 28.

Safety is Dangerous

Here is my first attempt at animation with Adobe After Effects, inspired by Surrealism, Dada, and early MTV animations.

All the source images were taken by me or Kris and can be found in my Flickr account.
