I set up a you tube channel (kassandramovingimage) to start uploading media that is moving image hence the name of the channel. I have opted for the expression moving image for those times when the media is not technically a video.
The first ever moving image that I have uploaded to you tube is from the Woodford Folk Festival Fire Event. As the description says I took this video because it is a very unique viewpoint as the 80-180k or so people watching are sitting up on top of the hill where they cannot actually see the stage or performers but they can see pretty lights, feel the atmosphere and watch the fireworks or the fire (2011/12 there was no actual fire at the fire event).

After being inspired by the first 2009 semi-permanent book that DesignIsKinky released I have submitted five artworks to hopefully get included. The following quote is the email I sent them.
I really loved the first 2009 book and it inspired me to want to be included in a next book, hence here now is my submission. Attached is my 5 submissions for the second 2009 book, all to specified sizes. Three files are saved as 72ppi jpg. The gif file shows a stroked line which is the bounding box the rest is there as a 5mm bleed. I feel as though I must mention the last file: it is just a jpg but the actual design has been printed A1, mounted and exhibited at the University of the Sunshine Coast Art Gallery in June-July 2009 (student exhibit) and will also be exhibited in a different show in Gympie in October.
My name is: Kassandra Bowers
Thanks for looking at my designs.”
This is me having a go at air brushing to the extreme but keeping in touch with reality. I have added nail polish, eye shadow and lipstick. This contains an skin texture brush from keepwaiting.
This is a photograph of a flower that has been composed so that the pollen is on the top left hand rule of third intersection. The image is unedited except the text stating it is Fig 1 and that it is unedited. The camera lens is literally inside the flower.
This is my final A1 poster for ADN214: Visual Identity and Exhibition Design. There is more information about it at this page: Urban Typography by Kassandra Bowers. This is the submission mentioned earlier as being exhibited in an art gallery.
This is something that I created especially for the book (the other things are all adapted from somewhere else). The stuff outside of the stroked line is the bleed. The fun thing about keeping a blog is seeing things connect as: something for semi-permanent has already been changed since its original blog entry.
This was the back cover for the ISM (Independent Student Magazine from the University of the Sunshine Coast) I worked on page layout and graphic design for the COMMERCIALISM issue. This was the back cover that I made from photographs I took in 2005. I was surprised after I got back to the Sunshine Coast after being in Darwin for 13 months to find that these patches of grass are now covered in concrete and structures. This has been edited since the original back cover. I sadly didn’t pick up on a typo and 10 000 copies were sent out with the 2005 saying 2008 (which didn’t make sense and was picked up on by a few of my university friends).

Something that has long been a hassle is how I have set up my own logos export file. Up until now there has been two files both called nearly the same thing both with excess information or not in the right format (with expanded appearnence). Today while I have been setting up stuff to upload to the blog I have realised that this format would be better:
Kassandra Logo saved as 3 separate EPS files for each of the three colours. This screenshot from within illustrator with all three files open. AHHH less worries about which file to open now since they are Encapsulated Post Script files.

I have been designing houses these last few years. This is the first one I have digitally drawn the floorplan for. Having done technical drawing at school for four years and now being able to vector illustrate has meant I can combine these skills. These houses are all 3D walk through versions on my laptop where I have been patient and screenshot/”taking photos” as I have walked through. Showing floorplans isn’t helpful to some people and loading the program and shuffling files (5 available slots) is tedious. I shall post some “photos”/digital renders of some of these rooms.
This particular home would cater for all my artistic needs having large art, design and photography studios downstairs. The house is created from an imaginary warehouse – I would indeed like to convert a warehouse in much this way. The large open space/void is open to the typical warehouse skylight and is a standout feature in this house. This space can be useful as an art space, a party venue, live music venue or to park the car. There is a master suite which would be occupied by myself and then the guest quarters contains a foyer with bay window, over night room with four single beds, a long term stay room, a shower and separate water closet. Each upstairs room will have one way glass to be able to view to open space area. The following is a “photo” montage of various parts of the house:
