On White Paper
This assignment was most interesting. I tried all kinds of things to modulate light. Who would have ever thought I'd be using liquor bottles, broken mirrors, scraps of lace, a waste paper basket and old architect templates to vary light on white paper in order to make a different image? Only in Vaughn's class!
In the words of Mr. Wascovich, " Modulation- In electronics, modulation is the process of varying one or more properties of a high frequency periodic waveform, called the carrier signal, with respect to a modulating signal. This is done in a similar fashion as a musician may modulate a tone (a periodic waveform) from a musical instrument by varying its volume, timing and pitch. The three key parameters of a periodic waveform are its amplitude ("volume"), its phase ("timing") and its frequency ("pitch"), all of which can be modified in accordance with a low frequency signal to obtain the modulated signal. "
Next, my plan is to take these modulated images of light and layer them into my other product pieces to create a new and interesting image.
