Honours Studio 1 – Week 09

Honours Studio 1 – Week 09

I’ve spent most of the past week trying to brainstorm entirely hypothetical interactive devices. By this stage, I was hoping to know which children I would be working with – and therefore, what sensory issues I would be focusing on. Unfortunately, due to circumstances out […]

Professional Portfolio – Week 12

Professional Portfolio – Week 12

Can’t talk: busy making final project work properly. Take a look at some pictures after the jump instead – I promise I’ll pay more attention to you in the weeks ahead.

Professional Portfolio – Week 11

Professional Portfolio – Week 11

Unsurprisingly, things are pretty crazy at the moment: trying to get a major work ready for exhibition and a portfolio of 3 years’ work printed, whilst wrapping up other final assignments, writing a research proposal for postgraduate study and working on a rather large freelance […]

Professional Portfolio – Week 09

And so what has been inside my computer for the past 9 months, finally begins its translation into reality. It may not be as painful as birth, but it might be almost as messy. This week, a friend who works as a signwriter was good […]

Dusk – Lighting Test

Dusk – Lighting Test

%CODE1% Just a quick video tonight: a test of the faux lighting I created in Quartz Composer and Max/MSP for Dusk. It’s far from perfect, but great to finally see projected onto physical objects for the first time. Thankfully, the perspective issues I had worried […]

Dusk – Boid Test

Dusk – Boid Test

%CODE1% For the first time, we saw what will become the basis for our fireflies projected onto the warehouse floor. These little fellas are called ‘boids’ and at this stage look like a certain male reproductive cell. They’ll take a more complete form soon. As […]

Lighting Tests

Lighting Tests

Emulating lighting will be a real focus for my end of year uni project and an upcoming installation piece (more on that very soon, once the official promo goes live). I need to create something that is capable to at least initially trick the eye […]

Digital Studio – Week 04

Digital Studio – Week 04

I carried out the first of the test experiments this week. A simple set up with a data projector displaying a Processing sketch, controlled by a Wii remote. The feedback I received from the 5 participants was interesting. It seems most people were distracted by […]
