Final Pcomp Project

For my final Physical Computing assignment, I’ve created gloves that generate different light, sound and animation effects according to the gestures of the performer that embodies the Fire Bird to tell their story. For more details about the storytelling part of the project, click here. Find below my Arduino Code: For more details about theContinue reading “Final Pcomp Project”

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”
