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”

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”

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”

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”

Previous experiments with pcomp

Instrument for planting invisible seeds In 2018 I created an interactive object called Instrument for planting invisible seeds. It is akind of Theremin DIY, adapted for a nomadic object, which I created the design and 3D-printed. The invisible seeds are abstract machines populated by the forces we see with closed eyes and whose configuration vary accordingContinue reading “Previous experiments with pcomp”
