fabrication – week 2

pyramid puzzle This week I was tasked to make multiples of a multi-process piece. I wanted to start making puzzles, so after researching for wood puzzles models online, I found one which would be makeable in one week considering my fabrication knowledge level. Then, I found this great instructable guiding the fabrication process, so IContinue reading “fabrication – week 2”

animation – week 1 – stop motion

The seed This week I worked with Lizzy Chiappini. We were tasked to create a 30 seconds loop stop motion animation video. As a starting point for the process, we saw each other’s portfolio and tried to find out points of intersections in the subjects of our past artworks. We found out that both ofContinue reading “animation – week 1 – stop motion”

Pcomp – midterm project documentation

Finding Words My midterm project for physical computing is an ongoing project. I’m creating a performative poem about a cyborg bird who died in the middle of the city. Where the bird died, a tree grew, because the bird had an invisible seed inside their belly. What is this seed made of and how doesContinue reading “Pcomp – midterm project documentation”

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”
