The hyperlinks above are to music videos that interests me very much. Clara Chung is a YouTube singer and guitarist. She inspire me very much becasue she is graduate from UC Irvine with a Psychology degree and although she is currently pursuing music full-time, she also works and teaches autistic children part-time. The concept of one of her videos, “Offbeat”, is to inspire visuals in a world filled with bubbles. She is a very inspirational person in the fact that she has a sensational art of music beneath her. She sings and does things out of love and her desired interests. Her ways of knowing how to play many different kinds of musical instruments proves that she has music within her. She is very creative as well through all her music videos that she creates. Her creative mind is what draws my attention because she is very different from other artists. Clara is someone who stands out in a room full of artists.
The most interesting elements of design she seems to use in her works are color, shape, texture and form. She practically uses them all. Through Clara’s works, she seems to be using color a lot to create the drastic contrasts of her song. Although many shapes can not be perceived so definitively, the music video of “Offbeat” seems to accentuate on the shape of a cirlcle to describe the visuals of a world. Since a world is circular. She uses the element of texture as well through the way the surface makes me feel as a viewer and how I perceive the video to feel. It makes me feel a sense of pleasantness and happyness.
One of her brilliant music videos is in the “Camel Song” shows very great use of space. The one-dimensional design is creating the illusion of a three dimensional design on a flat surface. The element makes the characters to be on top of a one-dimensional design that creates an illusiong to the viewers as three dimensional. Another elemental design Clara used was in the same video, “Offbeat” where she used form. The Bubble is seen as three-dimensional.
Another person by the name of Charice Pempengco, is a singer. Pempengco was born in Laguna, Philippines. Charice was raised by her single mother, Raquel. To help support her family she began to enter singing contests at age seven, from town fiestas in various provinces to singing competitions on TV. She is said to have competed in almost a hundred such contests. Her dilligence and courage got her this far, to where she is right now, the next Whitney Houston. Her voice is so powerful and amazing that it becomes an inspiration to all people. She went from being a helpless child to a well-off woman!
My interests are that her popularity increased because of her talent and her determination in all sort of contests. Coming from a place where technology is not so affluent, she becomes a singer better than any other in an affluent society. She reaches the top, because she is different and has a talent that will catch many people’s attention. She sure did catch my attention. Many people want to become well-known, famous or rich for stature, but Charice believes to use her talent in good terms and she enjoys what she does.
Charice’s elements of design is mostly related to texture. The sound of her voice is what draws people’s attention. Her talent is not in something but what is within herself. So to name an element to describe her design would be the texture of her voice that makes people feel a sense of amazement. Her voice can not be touched, so I don’t know how I can relate this to texture, but the sound of her voice is very powerful that it can be touched non-physically but through by heart.
Charice and Clara are very similar in that they both enjoy what they love; therefore can stand out from amongst many other people. They are my inspirations of design, their role in society and ways are the designs I like.
