The main objective of the AGD+M are digital media which became more significant than printed media. Thus students assignements can be interpreted in new connotations and various approaches can be applied. Students knowledge of informatics and programming is a great advantage. the AGD+M promotes the interdisciplinary through data visualisation, programming of generative design, creating an application for interactive media, animation, video, 3D digital modeling and 3Dprinting, e-publishing, webdesign, creating fonts, computer games, interactive information design.

Vojtěch Maša: I understand

cycle of digital photographic montages

I created a cycle of photographic montages. By means of photomontages I express my opinion about Ljubljana and Slovenia – the town and the city, in which I lived and studied for one year. In the theoretical part of my diploma I describe, why I chose the topic and the technique of digital photomontage. Briefly I mention authors, who used photomontage as technique in history and I remark some contemporary authors who work with photomontage. Consecutively I show, how I created the montages and how I further edited the photographs. The thesis consist of theoretical text part, photo supplement and electronic presentation. However a primary form of the presentation will be an exhibition. I programmed electronic presentation in ActionScript and Adobe Flash. I developed standalone application. It is possible to customize it and then use it for presentation of other photographic cycles.

experimental techniques of processing time-lapse photographs using Adobe Photoshop scripting

The aim of this thesis is to acquaint the reader with the usage of Adobe Photoshop scripting for processing time-lapse shots in an unconventional way, to a single photograph. The thesis also partially focuses on taking the source time-lapse photos and at the same time it can serve as a guide to Adobe Photoshop scripting in JavaScript programming language. The work is complemented by an attachment in A4 format consisting of 5 studio photographs and 5 photographs taken outdoors.005_-lom-brno

David Čech: Make-up tutorial

Make-up tutorial combines two video lines into a piece that reflects a schizophrenic nature of our souls. It is about how we present ourselves and what we don’t want others to know about us and maybe what even we don’t know about ourselves. In the background of a public exhibition in form of a common youtube make-up tutorial video, we can see flashes of what C. G. Jung called the shadow, the suppressed dark being.

Marcel Lang: Greed

Greed is a based upon wellknown story –The Fox and the Crow. This story is one of Aesop’s Fables,  which everybody knows from the childhood. Even though the message is still both contemporary and timeless, since ancient Greek Era. In the fable a crow has found a piece of cheese and retired to a branch to eat it. A fox, wanting it for himself, flatters the crow, calling it beautiful and wondering whether its voice is as sweet to match. When it lets out a caw, the cheese falls and is devoured by the fox. The story has been made in slideshow and cartoon version, to tell the story through sequential art, using characters made by 3D software.

Anna Boček Ronovská: How Cats Are Born, Growing Drawing, Cry

Drawing is a creative process, full of concentration, thinking and focusing, but on the other hand full of emotions, subconscious currents, memories… Rational tendencies cooperate with unconsiousness. Video of me drawing was captured during process, just by a phone camera, as a low-fi documentary, but afterwords it increases the view of pictures into a enriched story.
