Project Construction

After much deliberation I have decided to do the projection mapping without the computer vision piece. This will make my construction much more streamlined. I am in the middle of this tutorial: https://ofxpimapper.com/pages/github-instructions/ I also came across two good examples of what I am trying to accomplish. This first is the figure of a stadium…

Design Review Presentation

I wanted to give you readers a bit of an update on my project’s progress. Right now I am working on a Raspberry Pi projection mapping installment. I am torn between using some sort of computer vision interaction and a physical piece that is set with a projection mapping playlist. Inspiration Idea 1: Computer Vision…

Main Project Inspiration

Something that has interested me before starting this course was the aesthetic of simulation and how it is playing an increasingly bigger role in our daily lives. As I discussed with some of you in class the ray tracing and consistent colors in simulations are something that might be of interest moving forward. Ray Tracing…

Skill Set & Aspirations

My background is in mechanical engineering with a focus in thermal fluids simulations. I have had a part in a whole host of random projects, from wearable electronics to optimization. My freshman year I was super into incorporating Arduino’s into wearable electronics for sports and entertainment purpose. Since then I have spent my time working…

Upcycle: Kintsugi Final

Project Background Kintsugi is a pottery technique that glorifies imperfection and embraces the cracks that bring us together. The art-form dates back to the Japanese shogun Ashikaga Yoshimasa, who sent sent a piece of pottery back to China to be repaired. After the piece return, lackluster held together with only staples, he decided to have…

Upcycle Inspiration: Kintsugi

My first encounter with kintsugi was through a creator’s video on the subject matter. Nerdwriter1 is an amazing Youtube creator and storyteller who’s deep dive makes for ultra-interesting content. The video below gives the background on the origin of the aesthetic along with some great visuals and some deeper thought into the method. Mending the…

Aesthetic Exploration – Simulated

“Going outside is highly overrated.” ― Ernest Cline, Ready Player One Much of design is about conveying a message. As technology advances and the world becomes ever more accepting of tools to visualize object and events using computers it is important to value the aesthetics of simulations. This simulated by the internet artist Slam_nine that depicts, “the reaction-diffusion…
