Soft Robotics – Cable Experiments, Morph, Materials research

Cable Experiments References Here is a list of interesting references that I found during my research this week with examples of projects in the field of soft robotics. Science Robots Magazine: A vision for future bioinspired and biohybrid robots; Soft opportunities in a Toy Store For my soft materials research, I went to FAO SchwarzContinue reading “Soft Robotics – Cable Experiments, Morph, Materials research”

animation – Augmented Reality

The Flying XRiver For this assignment, we were tasked to create an augmented reality experiment, focused on the concept rather than a final result. I worked together with Maxwell da Silve and so we created the Flying XRiver – a 3D Sculpture reflecting on concepts such as the Anthropocene and the Flying Rivers of theContinue reading “animation – Augmented Reality”

The Fire Bird

The Fire Bird is a first experiment on building characters exploring interactive wearable technologies. This is a work in progress. I’m imagening here a performing arts environment where the performer will be able to control different elements of the space making different gestures. To compose the Fire Bird so far, I’ve created gloves that generateContinue reading “The Fire Bird”

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”

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”
