Based on the readings last week, I wanted to create a mask that would allow people to protect their faces from facial recognition companies as a form of protest.

(I applied this animation I made on p5.JS onto the face mask, and applied the ‘Luminosity’ overlay to remove the colors.)




For my mask project, I created a strange, semi-translucent mask that turns you into some sort of alien insect. 

When I was creating this mask, I was really interested in the idea of transparency, where I wanted to create a mask that masks your face, but doesn't remove all the underlying structure. The mask I created was taken from a Jello feature in Lens Studio, but distorted and transformed so that it would look more like a gas mask/face mask. I then applied a filter that gives the screen a smoky and grainy texture that works well with the translucent mask. I also added an eyeball, with the pupil being a shape of a face.

Crying Eyes

Do ever want people to know your crying while also covering up that ugly crying face of yours? Well now there’s a solution! Just use this snapchat lenses to let people know you’re crying while protecting them from horrifying sight of your crying face.




A little bit off then what I expected, but I’m satisfied with the amount of new things I’ve learned & tried.

(Somehow one of the texture files looked different in Lens Studio than in Blender…)

I tried to find an interesting way to make a fire ant look cool despite my irrational fear of them. God, I hate them so much.

I drew a design(painted on procreate) for the clear mask that the ant rests on.

It’s me!~

I am really homesick for a country I haven’t lived in for 9 years and this piece is about that.

The background is a drawing of La Iglesia de San Nicolas de Tolentino. 

My face is a marimonda.

My process/context about my guy  below the cut, since it’s mostly reflection on this body of work for myself.

My idea is to create a filter that requires collaborative effort from the user and the user’s pet. There are two objects in the 3D space where the Minecraft pig is fixated on the user’s head, and the duck moves along with the pig in space but it is further up front in the z direction. The goal was to have both the user and the pet move their head in the same directions at the same time, which I thought would be a small challenge but it turns out to be a big challenge. So that was that.
