Earth Project: Linh, Liz and Shuting

Earth Project

Shuting, Lihn & Liz

Sample Video of Earth Project in Action: Earth Video

Purpose To create an educational, thought-provoking visual / interactive installation that combines an object (the globe), Processing, Arduino, sensors, video and user engagement provoking people to reexamine their personal behavior, as well as the a basic survey of contemporary human . . . → Read More: Earth Project: Linh, Liz and Shuting

Revised Final Project Idea: Liz, Shuting & Linh

After a bit of revision and another couple of rounds of free-form / verbal and annotated brainstorming, we’ve come up with another final project idea. We had the opportunity to run the idea by Jim on Thursday evening and he was able to give us some extra direction on the specific sensors to look into.

Final Project Proposal: Shuting, Linh & Liz

Creation and Computation: Final Project

Group Members: Shuting Chang, Linh Do, Liz Coleman

Title: TBD

Project Concept:

Our senses are often forcibly segregated when we enter an art gallery—we are asked to look with only our eyes at a painting, a sculpture, an artifact or a photograph; to listen and . . . → Read More: Final Project Proposal: Shuting, Linh & Liz

Stopping Time & Freezing Gravity

This week, I wanted to experiment with time and space. I thought that using the information we learned in Processing regarding ellipses that drop because of programmed gravity would be the simplest way to demonstrate this. I combined simple code for Processing with simple code for Arduino (so they would be able to talk to . . . → Read More: Stopping Time & Freezing Gravity

Emotional Frequency Sensor–well, a first step to the idea

This week, experimenting with new sensors for Arduino, I was really excited to bring my personal fascination with “magic” in my artwork—making the invisible, visible and expressing what the body (the nervous system, senses and body language) tries to communicate though a noticeable expression—into the realm of sensors. I kept thinking to myself what is . . . → Read More: Emotional Frequency Sensor–well, a first step to the idea

Arduino with Motor

After juggling around the resistors and getting some higher quality wire from Shino, (she laughed and shook her head when she saw how flimsy some of my wires were), I managed to get the motor to run. I don’t seem to struggle with uploading the code to Arduino (or troubleshooting the drives, etc), I think . . . → Read More: Arduino with Motor

Arduino Homemade Button # 1

This week I loved the readings. I found them informative and easy to interpret. I think working with my hands messing around with Arduino comes much easier to me than writing Programming…which I still find exceptionally bizarre and abnormal because in every other type of writing endeavor, writing is hands-down my strong suit. Reading about . . . → Read More: Arduino Homemade Button # 1

Assignment 4: Well, a developement in my Processing education

The past four weeks learning Processing has been nothing short of panic attack, extra-migraine, insomnia provoking madness–not to mention, the psychological toll this struggle is putting me through . As much as I enjoy participating in the interactive Processing examples online or through our texts, it seems I just can’t wrap my brain around all . . . → Read More: Assignment 4: Well, a developement in my Processing education

Looking for a Processing Tutor

Hey, as I am sure, for any of you who have seen any of my blog posts, that you’ve noticed Processing is NOT my strong suit! I’ve exhausted all of the independent learning practices that I can do on my own (as well as have had little success with Dustin’s help lab [no fault of . . . → Read More: Looking for a Processing Tutor

Chapters 7 & 9: Creeping Along–Slowly

Liz Thinking About Processing

This weekend, I had a little break through regarding Processing. Shino, Faysal and I got together to work on Processing–thank god Shino knew what she was doing (she let me ask her insanely remedial questions [even ones about adding and subtracting the same number from opposing sides of the X or . . . → Read More: Chapters 7 & 9: Creeping Along–Slowly
