Diving in infinite immersive information

Why so many stories are just boring? Is it because the subject is meaningless or the storyteller untalented? Or is it because the storyteller doesn’t have the medium in which they can do it? The large number of new technologies emerging year to year give us exciting possibilities to express ourselves and tell the stories…

Rhythm on my (synthetic) skin

Being a one-person band is (very) fun, and also anxiety inducing. There are many things to keep track of, specially if you have many layers/instruments playing with you (from the computer). It’s not only about how it sounds, we do have that feedback, but if things are working and how they are working is something…

users wanna use

A platform for users to freely make 3D content and have more expressive tools is amazing, but… if they cannot interact with the scene, it’s not that useful. Thus, this week I focused on creating some user tools on the website, such as the possibility to change user, scene and get the coordinates of an…

(re)Creating 3d spaces

What are the advantages of working in 3D? What can we get out of it and what does it mean for human perception? Actually, a lot. The world that surrounds us is three-dimensional. That’s how we understand the world, how we traverse it. So, naturally having a 3D environment is the best way for us…

“light” accessory

On your wrist, easy on – easy light. A bracelet that can illuminate a keyhole or show how cool your dance moves are. And also my first soft circuit assignment for this class.

New Storytelling Platforms

Starting the task of creating an open cinematic creation tool, where you can manipulate the elements on a scene and everything gets saved and loaded online, I decided to go ahead and use three.js. It is a package I’m very comfortable with, so step was not that much of a stretch.

Draconian anxiety poems

This week’s assignment is creating a poetic form using tracery. I wanted to use this assignment as an exploration of my anxieties, of my fears, of the eternal presence of them in my life. I want to speak about how these fears get into my life, how they get under my skin unpredictably and inexorably,…

Flowing frustrations in rebellion

For this assignment, we had to create a text using at least two source texts and the list variable type. You can see all the source files in my GitHub repository Sources In an attempt to join my exploration of authors and topics, I chose some works by the poet Eileen Myles. I read her…

Peaceful waiting

For this project assignment, we have to create a simulation of a specific experience. My simulation proposal is a meditative waiting while attempting to feed a rabbit on a clear in the woods. Drawing of the scene Category & Questions to answer Waiting – “Simulate the experience of waiting. We spend most of our lives…

Asteroid sonification

Sonification of a data set of discovered asteroids and comets that transit near Earth. Project done in collaboration with Camilla Padgitt-Coles and Katya Rozanova. Failed experiments (for now) Our first attempt was to use The Beatle’s song Norwegian Wood to make a sentiment analysis of the comments on one of ots YouTube videos. We extracted…
