FIRST WEEK

After the drawing week I was little anxious if I
would like my first project however; I liked it a lot. We have to learn how to
use 3D printer and the topic is our DIGITAL PORTRAIT. It is very open how I
would like to represent myself which I very glad about.

 

RESEARCH d.2

When I started think about the project and the
topic I was wondering what my friends on FB thinks about me and how do I
represent myself on this very popular social network? I had to think about how
I want to represent myself on the Internet. Even thought I do not want to put
too much information about me on the Internet I am aware I already put a lot
there and I am still posting stuff there. Google knows more than I do, my
parent do or my boyfriend does. The question is – “Is that bad?” More I know about
the codes and how the website working, more I would like to know about the
system. However there is dark side how to use it properly?
Am I losing my identity already? Every time I
clicked or post something I losing my privacy more and more. How the FB, Google
or Twitter is changing over the year? I suppose a lot because each year it
becomes more popular and these companies get more users. 
I started watching TEDtalks, documentary and
thesis (Richard Coyne and Dorian Wiszniewski,Technical deceits,Critical theory,
hermeneutics and the ethics of information technology,Department of
Architecture University of Edinburgh
).
First of all, each individual understands reality and time completely
differently and it is better to think about the reality as a state of mind. It
is same as rotation of the Sphere, we don’t feel it but we know it is rotating
all the time. “They present the imaginary in order to make us believe that
the rest is real” (
Richard Coyne and
Dorian Wiszniewski,Technical deceits,Critical theory, hermeneutics and the
ethics of information technology,Department of Architecture University of
Edinburgh). 
Second of all, when we don’t know much about the
something we don’t have to worry what could happened and I suppose it is same
with the Internet. More we know how the whole system working more we worry
about the privacy. At least I do. After I found out I never would be able to
delete any information I am more careful what I am putting or sharing my
personal information e.g. my personal number, date of birth, etc. The Internet
should give to us more freedom but is there is still free of speech? It is horrifying
that Gmail knows all my private emails and use them and it does not mater for
what. It is used for the protection but how much?

I decided to start with a photo “selfie” or
self-portrait and how do I think I representing myself on the Internet. How do
I look? Honestly, I do not like to be photograph and put them on the public unless
I think it is appropriate. Although, I do not mind talk to new people and get
them know I am not type of person who is too much open so why should I be more
familiar online? The biggest advantage of online world is I could be whoever I
want to be e.g. I could be thinner, smarter because everything is allowed and
possible. After all I decided to create “the core” of me with all the connection
that surround me. Connection that is all the time around me.

SECOND WEEK

” ‘I’ is only a convenient term for somebody who has no real being. Lies will flow from my lips, but there may perhaps be some truth mixed up with them; it is for you to seek out this truth and to decide whether any part of it is with keeping.” (Virginia Wolf, A room of ones owns)

 

I never thought this week might bring thousand of problems and questions that I assume as a positive thing. I had to solve technical problems with Maya and makerBot which was so challenging because I was not able to export anything at MakerBot software specifically I was able to export something but it took more than two hours I assumed there is something wrong

 

 

Finally, I solved the problem because everything was in settings however; when I solved one thing another showed up. I wanted to print quite organic shape with lines or web looking style, however, it was not working as I imagined.

 

 

Waiting for the final objects are the best time event though sometimes it is turns wrongly..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the glitches and a mistake I most of the time get the most. And also when is sometimes turns right its the energy full again and I can start again..

 

 

 

 

 

 

Experiment gave me opportunity to think about the final piece from different angle. Upside down. “So if I can do that way I could you this and that” So its moved me forward a lot..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition, this week I have been thought about meaning of the words – self, myself and I. What is a difference between them or why is so important lately. How do we want to represent ourselves? We live in the modern age of selfies and selfishness. From self-portrait to selfies. Uh! Why most of the people want to upload their selfies on the social networks? Am I doing the same? I assumed, I am posting some stuff on the social networks when I feel lonely, sad because I would like to show to other the opposite – “Look at me I am so HAPPY!! And you are not…”

THIRD WEEK

—–> NUMBER(S) IN ACTION <—–

I am only number for virtual world. My identities are only generated numbers. If I don’t know my number I am basically nothing.
Most of the companies and countries don’t care about my name because there are too much people with same name – Karolina Kaucka. How many people are named as me? Could I find them?

Karolina Kaucká
, *29.9.1858 – †17.11.1895
I found three people who hold same name as me.
Basically, I am just a little point in the data number in the virtual cable mess which surrounds and floating all the time around me.
Last week of the project was harder because I found out that my final Maya model would not be printable so I had to go back and started to think about the project from new angle.  Especially when I go through my sketches and first ideas what I had I decided I would like to print something similar what I already print for my first experiment and do not experiment and make some more complicated ideas anymore because it is pointless. Over the project I have been thinking about who am I, and what is my identity and to be honest I still do not have answer. I assume it would take more than few to find out who am I even though sometimes I know how do I feel about my identity.
My outcome of the research and sketches is use quite complicated organic shape that has cover core with simple dots with a lot glitches, I tried to create meaningful object in every element so even there is a lot “mistakes” around it is important to because I still feel as the Internet and my online/digital identity is not perfect and I don’t want to make it perfect. I suppose the best words for the Internet are fear, loneliness or freedom, which represent my opinion on the virtual addiction.
In the last three weeks I have been teaching Maya which is almost same as 3Dmax, which I am more familiar with but still there is a lot of differences. In the beginning I was worried a lot about the outcome and the whole learning processes but finally, I am satisfied what I finished and learnt. The most challenging about this project was to think deeply about my identity and how do I represent myself on the Internet and how many social networks do I have and what do I want and expect from the online world and also to think how others sees me on the social networks. The first week when I started just with self-portrait helped me a lot to start think about myself differently and different techniques was helpful as well, what I got from one photo is quite amazing. From pretty understandable photo or watercolor painting to completely abstract shapes. I could be whatever I want to be. The second week was more about the experiments and get more familiar with the printer and the software, which was successful. My concept was changing a lot because I was not able to say what I would print because I haven’t had print anything yet so this was the reason why I changed it a lot and I am glad I had to change it a bit and experiment because that’s make the project more interesting.
Hopefully, today or tomorrow I made my last object. Although, I feel the pressure I wanted create something totally different I assume after all the weeks I push the project a lot forward. Unfortunately, I am not good in the expression of all and myself the though what I have in my head. From my speech is just weird presentation and other people get just half ideas what I’m want to express (I have this problem in my first language, too) Even though, I’m trying to improve the problem with the presentation it is hard for me to. When I don’t know how to react I just don’t speak at all or just smile… Next step would be to present my work in proper way.

 

After printing the final object and proper photos are done I feel satisfied with the work I done so far. I spent a lot of time on this project from learning software’s; thought to ideas with I had to come up. I am glad I had enough time everything. Just my self-portrait photo left, however; I assume I did my self-portrait in the first week where I made few paintings from one “selfie”. Although, it is not photographic proper self-portrait I would be able

——> HOW MANY?? <——

How many networks I have on the Internet? Over all I assume I have 15 dots about me on the Internet. Not that bad. (Facebook, Twitter, 6emails, youtube, vimeo, spotify, iCloud, Blogger, WordPress.) How much time per day I use them? Facebook-everyday, Twitter-4times per week, emails almost every day, youtube – every day, vimeo – few times per month, spotify – not too much, Blogger – depends, every week, every day…, WordPress – almost everyday

——-> FINAL PRINTING <——-

On Wednesday, I started print my final object which made my day very special because I was nervous about the last object. Hopefully, everything turns ok. Although I had a huge problem, which I had to solve, after one hour of printing based to print should started print, the object but the printer stopped printing. Actually, it tried to print but the filament did not go from needle. I had two option, cancel the printing or stopped the process and think about that. What I would like to do next? I decided to continue and see if the printer will print properly, however; it still did not print perfectly so I was desperate. But dreadful situation need fast solution and I found the solution!! 

 

 

The menu has an option for changing filament during the printing when it is in pause mode so I solve the problem and I changed the filament and loaded it – from the white one to clear. I assume that the object turns into very interesting shape and I am satisfied with my two color final object and because we all tried find a way to change the filaments so I fund the way. I am glad that I used the photographic table with photo flashlight. I had to figured how to combine my own camera with the flash. I started set up everything with Viola so we had to corporate and think about some problems which was not a big issue. We helped to each other from holding the lights to set up the scene when Viola wasnot sure about something because I already worked with photographic lights and tripod and camera. I am glad that we have to corporate and we are sharing our ideas when I do not know someone helps me and I can assist and help to someone as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MY OBJECT

                

Finally, I decided to re-make my first object with central globe. The central sphere is defines me – my identity “in the real world”. (Although, I read some of the books about identity and some talks and document, I still do not have exact idea about the representation of myself. I consider that to explore my real identity will takes longer than I expected. I resolve for the neutral shape as sphere because I came up with idea of dots as me and in three dimensions I need round object)
The little spheres around me represent “my dots or traces of existence” what I put and I have been given to others on the networks. This little orbs around me (spheres) is also in me – they are still part of me and I gives little of me to others to “BIG BROTHER”. The “messy dots web around the objects” is showing the virtual reality and information, which is still around me, and I never would be able to erase this information. Abstraction also shows what virtually means for me – Abstraction, fear, freedom and prison.
It is influential to know about these facts but on the other hand the Internet is useful and gives me more opportunities than my ancestors ever had.

5 5)   What is my identity and what I expect from my virtual identity
The world is evolving every second faster and faster and we need to be able to acclimatize to these changes. The speed of our physical motion in the world is relevant; same as our sense of reality. Someone can feel reality in a different way but it does not mean it is wrong or unrealistic. Both angles can be right. In different words, we have the right to feel variously. But what happens when we do not want to fell it differently. Communication methods have changed from classic letters to emails or mobile devices. Now it is to normal to use a smartphone to manage your bank account and therefore people are not surprised to speak with a machine instead of a person.
Most of people have virtual identity, but what is virtual world? Where is it? How do people present themselves? Virtual world has the advantage of not being real and it depends only on the imagination of what someone wants. It is variable, free and fascinating. Especially video games that allow us to have the feeling of being a part of a group, the sociable impact on our mentality is massive on the although people could be in fact lonelier. Sometimes they do not have a need to eat or sleep. They want to feel the virtually in every part of their body. It is a common result that some people start taking drugs in order to feel more intensive, but that is different story.
Modern technology brings a lot of advantages, however; there is one enormous disadvantage and that is that we are lonelier instead of being more together together.
Freedom brings us more responsibilities in many ways. First of all, internet and social networks are “good slaves but bad masters”. Which means that if someone uses the internet and virtual communication too much, everything, literally everything about a person is in the cloud. Disinformation and feeling of secure of the cloud is unbelieves (?). Most of people think there is freedom of speech, but is there really?
Why do terrorist not use email and try not to use mobile devices? It is obvious. Because someone could hear them and then get hold of sensitive information if not trace them down. People in Iraq or Syria are afraid to live near a journalist just because of the connectivity, which the army and terrorists could see. It is better to communicate in the old fashion ways. Like letters, face to face etc. In the future, I would like to do an experiment about the freedom of speech on Gmail, using two Google accounts with classical Islamic names in different locations. It will probably be difficult to find someone in the Islamic world who would like to do such an experiment at this time. I think the UK is enough afraid of the terrorists already, which is understandable. And send more emails about bombs and some kind of attack. How long would it take before someone comes? Would I really be under the threat of getting arrested for such kind of an activity? someone really arrest me for the weird activity?
Google knows more about us than we know ourselves, we share more than we even say out loud and we are comfortable with this fact. Has anyone even read the tenancy about creative cloud or other application? No, it is too long and it is easier to click on a accept button. It is easier to send an email than phone and speak to someone. Do we really need to be online 24/7? Basically, we have been changing the means of our communication from the anchors. Sometimes, it is enough to write a message on Facebook or email. In my opinion, people who share too much on the social networks are desperately looking for friends. Nothing is black or white there is many more aspects to it and more points of view… Where we are going if you do not have energy to read a book, it is easier to watch a movie than a read a book or go outside. It is enough to communicate via just letters without real reaction. Virtual world is better, more colorful and it is the sadness what I feel about it.
The more I know about the Internet and Google, the more I try to use it more carefully and not to put too much stuff there. I am working on (my) the virtual identity. Unreal me – unreal identity. Alter ego of me. Two numbers, two address, different names and ID cards. Two us. It is almost a schizophrenic feeling. Is it bad to be alone? Not really… It is inoperative. Is it at all possible to be alone with all the modern technology? No, connection. Messages. Me. You. He. She. Who they are? I even don’t know these people, but we are friends.
To show face, express your soul and what is inside is basic feeling. All people have it. Self-portrait is an amazing technique for expressing mood. “I want people to be able to see my soul, and that comes out better in my own photographs than in others” (August Strindberg 1849-1912) Feelings. Expression. For me it is enormously difficult to draw myself. Watch myself in the mirror. Probably, I have some thought and opinion of myself which I am not able to express. At high school I had to make a lot of classic self-portraits. I was able to draw an exact likeness of a model. “C.G Jung defines that the self is not only the center, but also the range which includes consciousness and unconsciousness; it is the center of totality, like the I is the center of the consciousness. In life, the self claims to be recognized, integrated and realized, but one can not hope to gain more that a fraction of this huge totality within the limited range human consciousness.” (Dissertation by Nabiha Dahhan, 2001, page n.9) It is very hard to show others what I feel and who am I. Another point of view to approach this problem is  asking myself “I am sure who am I? ”. In my opinion I know what I want to say through the self-portrait. “In self-portraiture, there is no psychological boundary to overcome and more freedom to show or not to show. But, re-creating and interpreting the own self does, of course, not automatically mean that the artist finds and reveals his true self. A self portrait does not show the truth, but maybe parts of it in some particular moment” (Dissertation by Nabiha Dahhan, 2001, page n.6)

 

History of 3D printing
Medium which starting is more and more famous in this time? In 1984 three dimension printing had been invented by Charles Hull, he was the first person who used digital data for dimensional printing. The popularity of  3D printing has been rapidly arising every year because 3D printing brings more opportunities to almost every department from technicians to artist, from artists to doctors and from doctors back to home. It is interesting how 3D printing strongly impacts fashion or medicine. Nowadays it is possible to print almost everything and it is just a matter of time what will be the next step. Today, it is normal that most of households have a printer at home and in ten years time it might be absolutely normal for every household to own a 3D printer as well.
Artist research and 3D printings – examples
Sophia Kahn
“Artist’s statement
My work owes its fragmented aesthetic to the interaction of new and old media, or the digital and the analog. I combine cutting-edge technology, like 3d laser scanning and 3d printing, with ancient bronze casting techniques. I create sculptures and videos that resemble de-constructed monuments or memorials. They engage questions of time, history, vision, identity and the body.
The precise 3d scanning technology I use was never designed to capture the body, which is always in motion. When confronted with a moving body, it receives conflicting spatial coordinates, generating fragmented results: a 3d ‘motion blur’. From these scans, I create videos or 3d printed molds for metal or clay sculptures. The resulting objects bear the artifacts of all the digital processes they have been though.
They also speak to the impossibility of ever capturing more than a trace of the past, or of a living, breathing body, despite our grandest efforts to fix it in place. This concern with the instability of memory and representation is the common thread that weaves together the ancient and futuristic aspects of my work.” (Sophie Kahn, http://www.sophiekahn.net/#!about/c240r)

“Virtual enviroments are much richer in terms of freedom of navigation and ease of interaction.” (ICHIM page.1)
Virtual one. I am a scared from the powerful of the virtuality, which could give me something but more takes from me. All the virtuality is around me. Everywhere. If I would like to be free, I have to move to countryside, I know that. But I am not ready.
