I'm so crap at writing. heres my proposal...

My previous two projects have both involved Unreal Tournament and Unreal Editor.

My first project was concerned with the editor itself how it functions as a tool, and how that can be exploited. Levels created in UnrealEd hide an architecture that cannot be seen until what was empty space was made solid. My second project related to revealing hidden forms from the levels, this time from players movements within the game.

For both projects I wanted to bring these hidden forms/architectures/sculptures into life, to be able to touch them. Hence my experiments into rapid prototyping and using helium balloons as a representation of 3D positional data.

I want to keep exploring and experimenting with all the previously mentioned themes.

I'm interested in the process of deconstructing then constructing, of using GPS type data as a marker for destruction or creation. I feel there is a lot more to do in this area.
I'm interested in using Unreal and UrealEd to create sculptural tools. This might be a little beyond me, but I can certainly do something with it.
I'm interested in removing goals from the levels of the game, of re-creating the levels in a new way to create a different kind of game space.
I'm interested in bringing the forms created into life in various ways. Note to self... need to buy some land.

I'm just generally interested in Unreal Editor and Unreal Tournament, in games and game-play. Creating a game that can function as a tool (or at least isn't really a game).

okay... sorry to disappoint but there will be no balloons in the studio tomorrow.
well, maby one... but certainly not many its too much hassle and too crowded in there. So instead I took my balloons outside, and had a fun balloon day.

twas fun (if a little windy!)

quite an improvement that last one...

okay... what have I been doing?

well, since hearing oodles of information of Derek I have been secretly planning my assault on the final project. and unfortunately right when I want to be doing uni work, (starting my next project while figuring out what to say about my last one)I get lumbered creating a menu for "Battle Royale".

damn phone game

the posters. so happy we have an extra day for the hand-in! just got back from my cousins wedding (was yesterday). they had it in a castle which was nice, and they gave us exorbident amounts of food which was even nicer.

anyhoo 1 more day yay! I can make the visual sketch book side of things nicer.
