Muybrige Jump Final Project

Concept

This project started with an investigation into re-imagining early cinematic devices, and to examine the early uses of moving images and entertainment in the context of digital media.It’s meant to investigate the how the simplicity of cinematic devices generated wonder and enthusiasm, whereas in our era of over-saturation, such enthusiasm is more more . . . → Read More: Muybrige Jump Final Project

Assignment 8 Update: Video Interaction with Ultrasonic sensor

One of the things I wanted to explore in this class was the relationship between sensors and video playback, and what kinds of content would work in an installation with sensors. I did a simple experiment to update my week 8 assignment, which was to create an interaction between Arduino and Processing via a serial . . . → Read More: Assignment 8 Update: Video Interaction with Ultrasonic sensor

Final Project Idea Revision – Muybridge Jump

In keeping with the theme of re-examining early cinematic technologies, I have a revised project idea based on Muybridge’s early motion experiments, and essentially the first high speed photography. While reading about Muybridge’s fascination with whether or not horses’ feet left the ground while running, the outcome displays a very simple fascination with motion, . . . → Read More: Final Project Idea Revision – Muybridge Jump

Assignment 8 – Error / Video Brightness Controlled by Potentiometer

 

Here’s my Processing sketch with the printed sensor data at the bottom. It’s just a test to see how the potentiometer in Arduino would control video brightness. It should make the video controllable from dark to bright in a smooth predictable way, but instead it’s random amounts of brightness with no control. This isn’t . . . → Read More: Assignment 8 – Error / Video Brightness Controlled by Potentiometer

Final Project Proposal

1) Concept

My first idea, the more likely one- is about questioning the viewing experience of cinema by adding an element of effort to change or discover. A camera mounted on 1-2 servo motors is connected to processing, running a motion detection sketch. A projection shows the image being captured within the space. When a . . . → Read More: Final Project Proposal

Assignment 8 – error – work in progress

Hey everyone. Sorry I couldn’t make it to class.

I don’t want this to be my submitted assignment as there’s some kind of problem going on with processing receiving serial data, and it’s making things not work.

I’ve got Arduino working with a potentiometer, and the output data mapped from 0-255. The serial monitor shows . . . → Read More: Assignment 8 – error – work in progress

Canon Hack Development Kit wiki

Just wanted to share with you the information on how to install motion detection, intervalometer, and other programs onto a memory card, to be run by regular cheap Canon cameras (mine was a Powershot).

Assignment 7: Sensors and Narrative- work in progress

My day of being attentive to sensors was pretty simple but brought up my awareness of them:

-alarm system at home- motion detection

-open/ closed circuits on windows

-elevator door

-grocery store doors

-stepping on a mat inside convenience store- bells/ alarm

-Nike plus application – GPS

 

There was a great show at the . . . → Read More: Assignment 7: Sensors and Narrative- work in progress

Assignment 6: Zoetrope!

I made the DC motor circuit and tested out changing the coding parameters, and switching the wires. Modifying it to add a switch wasn’t a success at first. I find that searching for tutorials that show a variation on a circuit can help put the pieces together. First I built this circuit without success . . . → Read More: Assignment 6: Zoetrope!

Arduino basics

This week I revived my basic knowledge of Arduino and soft circuitry, and made a simple puffy fabric switch using felt and conductive fabric. In previous Arduino workshops, I was shown two sites that have been great learning resources – Opensoftwear and How To Get What You Want. My first project, the leather keyboard . . . → Read More: Arduino basics
