animation – after effects

Meet.me Meet.me was created by me together with Wen Chen. We started imagining a future when we’ll be able to built ourselves and design body parts in the real world with advanced augmented reality technologies, before going to a casual date. We also talked about how meeting apps change our behavior in society and modifyContinue reading “animation – after effects”

fabrication – week 4

Wearable acrylic enclosure This week we were tasked to create an enclosure. I made a simple experiment for a wearable using acrylic cut in the laser cutter and standoffs. The idea is to wear the Arduino Nano 33 IOT, which has a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope, to collect movement data from my hands, which areContinue reading “fabrication – week 4”

fabrication – week 3

Laser Cutter hand-eye mask This week we were tasked to work with the laser cutter. I’m always thinking about the performing arts context, so I designed a mask for the character I’ve been developing this semester: the Fire Bird. I bought two pieces of acrylic at Canal Plastic orange and teal transparent. The most challengingContinue reading “fabrication – week 3”

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”
