computational media – week 6 – midterm project

Finding Words For my ICM midterm project, I created my first experiment with coding and words. This is a kind of interactive poetry that I’m working on to combine with physical computing, in a way that each word is going to be activated by gestures that press wearable switches. In the future, this is goingContinue reading “computational media – week 6 – midterm project”

physical computing – midterm project

Finding Words I think that some memories need to be preserved as well as some future presences, that don’t exist yet, need to materialize themselves. And to do so, I feel like telling a story. It’s a story about a cyborg bird who died in the middle of the city and, where they died, aContinue reading “physical computing – midterm project”

computational media – week 5

This week I learned how to create functions and objects and how it can be applied to create repetitions and modulations. The code that I chose to do it was kind of tricky because some parts of the variables I used to create it, needed to be defined in the setup function, some in theContinue reading “computational media – week 5”

physical computing – Learning how to learn and Labs 2 and 3

For the past few weeks, I’ve been struggling to learn Pcomp. I feel that the ability to mix coding with electronics is something that takes a lot of time to assimilate, considering that both are quite new universes for me. Hence, I started to create new learning strategies to find ways to study on myContinue reading “physical computing – Learning how to learn and Labs 2 and 3”

computational media – week 3

Collective Artificial Fire Flower This week me, Name and Ray created an interactive firework set in P5.js with three different effects, related to the interactive functions MousePressed, MouseDrag and keyPressed. Although we have different levels of coding knowledge, it was very motivating to work together and come up with solutions for the problems we faced.Continue reading “computational media – week 3”

computational media – week 2

Animated Rainbow Creature Check my first animated rainbow creature here. Element controlled by the mouse: Rotation/Color of the triangle; I tried to position the triangle exactly in the center of the square, but I couldn’t. Here is my try. Element changing over time: The rainbow lines disappear. This is actually a mistake. I was tryingContinue reading “computational media – week 2”

physical computing – week 2

Switch Lab This week I created an improvised wearable switch using aluminum paper modeled to fit my fingers. When I touch both fingers, the current starts to flow, activating the circuit and turning on the white LED. This is a very simple experiment starting to explore the possibility of creating live storytelling performances using specialContinue reading “physical computing – week 2”

computational media – week 1

This is my first assignment drawing using p5.js web editor. I started the design of a creature that in the future can become an animation, a performance, or both. She has no name yet and probably she doesn’t speak our language. about the process…. First of all, it took much more time than I thoughtContinue reading “computational media – week 1”

Introduction to computational media

How does computation apply to my body? I am the last generation of those who still have memories without the internet. I remember when the internet came to me, at the beginning of the 21st century, while I was still living with my family, in a very small city where I was born and raised.Continue reading “Introduction to computational media”
