Abstract

The 汤圆(Tang Yuan) Chocolate Chip Cookie is a three-dimensional diorama that captures and guides viewers through the process of combining two drastically different ethnic desserts into one final product. Through a video presentation of the diorama, this project is designed so that each part of the 3D environment contains hints and clues about the baker's identity. It aims to introduce readers to embark on a treasure hunt to piece together the story of this new cookie and how it came into existence. By employing dynamic composition with baking ingredients, the implied motion directs the reader's gaze towards key elements of the baking environment. The scene's composition and prop placement begin with the camera opening to the center of the room and progressing to display the cooking process from left to right. A slow pan captures the viewer's attention, allowing them to explore the baker's story elements scattered throughout the kitchen.
