Notes on Nova:
A Social Media Fiction Project by Claire Bain.
Background material on The Nova Avon, the internet story of a character named Nova Avon, played out in real time on social networking websites.
I had a request from my friend and ex-therapist to create a man for her. She described physical characteristics, personality traits, and other aspects that she would like; I proposed a few ideas, too. Below are some preliminary pictures of him; I am having trouble getting him to look masculine. (I think perhaps I get better results from making a video clip of me acting, and then pulling stills from it.)
This sequence goes in reverse order to show the process of taking and then altering the photos to form the character.
This is a funny thing my printer did. I will draw over it to masculinize the image.
