THE CHRONICLE - CONCEPT ART COLLECTION
This collection started off as a focus for one of my obsessions - movies. Very much similar to our world, both movies and our perceivable reality holds the inevitability of progression. No matter good or evil to our recognition, there will always be a change. I want to explore my envision of change, and express it to people through story-oriented narrative. While a concept art collection is not a direct and obvious approach to narrative in contrast to its more refined form – movies, it does enable emphasis on the ambiguity of the narrative, where the differentiation in sequencing can manipulate the magnitude of change. I do not want to feed information, but to inspire.
Fear is the theme for exploration and expression in this project. The produce of this subject can lead to evolutionary advancements, but it can also be the causation that incites and breeds conflicts - a vessel that shifts between overcoming and dominance.
MAP & WINDOW
Map and Window is a tribute work to the legendary Formula 1 world champion Niki Lauda, one of the most respected and talented driver to exist. The human brain is a perfect diagram that indicates the racer’s mental activities during both mentally and physically intensive racing, and it also acts as a map that depicts the racer’s racing experience through indicating the stimulation of different parts of the brain under different circumstances. To reinforce the story-telling aspect, I also incorporated the old German GP racing circuit onto the brain for the direction of a more defined and immersive narrative. In addition, I mapped appropriate footage of the race onto the relevant the part of the brain and the circuit. The sensory cortex of the brain for perception of pain is mapped in coherent to the Bergwerk corner of the Nürburgring racing circuit, where Niki Lauda crashed.
PROFILE & INTRAVIEW - A CONCEPT ART COLLECTION OF 2 PEOPLE
The following pages are presented in horizontal spreads. Each spread contains 2 pages.
This book is presented in the form of a concept art book. Concept art books are the extrapolation and expansions of details regarding the production of a work. I collect concept-art books of my favored movies to appreciate the crafts of the design, and to understand & learn further for the efforts spent in the production of a film, the details that completes the film but viewers neglect, and the creativity that brought the film alive.
Therefore, this concept art book is a “parody” of the lives of me and my project partner. We turned the characters, which is ourselves, into characters we designed based on our image. In our concept art book, we explain further in greater depths on how we created these characters, which is the anecdote of our lives. Not only will it provide delicate details of ourselves, diving deeper into the different aspects of our characters, it will also be a fun and interesting read.
