FINAL PROJECT CHECKLIST
Please copy and paste your answers into an Microsoft Word Document. Print this document for your partner who is going to help you edit and proofread your checklist.
After you are done editing with your partner you are going to email the checklist to your instructor, firstname.lastname@example.org.
1) What is the main question or problem that you are investigating through your final project? (Complete sentences please.)
Example: I am investigating how people can distinguish between different types of abstract sounds in an experimental game. (Complete sentences please.)
2) If the piece is going to be interactive, briefly describe what the navigator will need to do to get a sense of what your piece is about.
Example: I am going to make a "concentration"game in which the navigator must click to turn over different rocks in my piece. Sounds will play to cue the viewer which rocks "match." There are 16 stones, or rather, 8 rock pairs with matching sounds.
2) List all of the images and/or sounds you will need to gather to create your piece. In parentheses cite the exact source where you will be finding this material.
Example: Background image of soil (video still from a GL-1), photographs of 8 different types of rock "pairs"(scanned objects I own) , 8 different sounds (human voices recorded in lab with ceramic microphone).
3) Describe all necessary hardware and software you will need to exhibit your piece during the final critique on December 11th.
Example: MacG4, trackball, and speakers.
4) Cite at least one artist whose work you know or whose work you have seen in class that this project relates to. If possible provide a URL of the artist's work that might best inform your work.
Example: My final project relates loosely to the game, The Intruder, we saw in class by Natalie Bookchin. Bookchin took a number of recognizable video games and reconstructed them to tell a story. My work is going to be narrative also. As viewers click to turn over the stones they are going to hear fragments of remembered stories to try to connect together in their minds.
5) Describe any special help that you might need to complete this project.
