I dunno, the entire package is aesthetically pleasing, but in a trying to get a job way. Its packaged nicely, and cryptic without any sort of explanation, which can be problematic if you want your work(not home test work) to support itself. Your weakest seems to be the feral self portrait, given that 3D animation. Its too silly and too left field to be put together with your drawing. It seems like one or the other would be ok, but both together is also problematic. However, nicer use of programming. Processing and an arduino chip is a very resourceful tool. As a programmer/coder I admire it, but keep in mind this stuff is used by almost every performance artist that has a love for music, and Ive seen this equation/code used in other applications. I think you are in luck. I don't think any of the people that look at the home tests are huge processing fans If they are, you may be in trouble.

Good luck, your chances are good.

Thanks for the feedback.
The books are really just supplementary(I'm assuming these are what you're referring to when you say "in a trying to get a job way"). I made them to accompany larger c prints for the monument and harbinger prompts. I wanted to make them as clean and concise as possible. Really more of a reference to understand the work that went into creating each piece.
I'm curious why pairing the two self portraits would be problematic. Please elaborate.

Well, simple really. You have the drawing which you are trying to show your technical skill and show your ability, but then you have the other which is computer generated, and almost incredibly cheesy, which throws the concentration on your skill out the window and focuses the viewer on how cheesy the animation is. Its a shift of importance.

I guess the notion that the drawing is derived from the 3d render is enough, huh?

I think instead of supporting, you just revealed your process. And gives them one more thing to open and watch. Its one of those things that they'll care incredibly about, or not at all.
