For my project I want to create a generative landscape, playing with perspective and depth of field. I am attracted to the image of a pond of lily pads. I like that it would involve fairly simple geometric shapes but would create a calming image. I like the idea of potentially doing a generative landscape from above, as if the viewer is flying over the surface of the pond. I also like the idea of changing the opacity to create the illusion of fish beneath the surface of the water.
My other option is a standard horizontally moving landscape, in which case I’d like to play with the idea of reflection – showing trees or grass reflecting in the pond.
I want this to have a very calm, organic feel to it. I think by playing with opacity and color schemes this can be accomplished.
