I’m having a week of really bad indecision / maker’s block. So I haven’t been able to decide on one idea I’m absolutely sure I want to stick with. After a couple days of hemming and hawing, I’m going to just write them each out here, and hopefully through discussion in class / after class, … Continue reading Physical Computing: Final Proposal(s)
For this week’s assignment, I chose to analyze this special edition Evil Dead poster designed by the British artist Olly Moss for Mondo Posters. I chose this for three reasons: First, I love this poster and the movie. Second, It feels festive for a class on halloween. But thirdly and most importantly, I love how it … Continue reading Visual Language Week 1: Design Analysis
Conceptually, using data from an API made a lot of sense to me. In practice, I’M RIPPING MY HAIR OUT, I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT’S HAPPENING, AND NOTHING WORKS!!!! I wanted to use this free dog image API to create a random dog picture generator by breed. Once I got the images working, I was going … Continue reading ICM WEEK 7: Aaaaaaaaaaargh!
Fabrication posts will go here!

I didn’t get to do as much as I’d like to with the sketch, assignment… but I feel like the concepts we … Continue reading ICM Week 6: HTML & CSS
I did the first half of this week’s labs on the floor, as I needed to borrow an accelerometer from a classmate. I didn’t really document anything with photos, because the whole lab went pretty smoothly, and the code looked exactly like what was written in the lab! I’m working on the second half at … Continue reading P Comp Week 6: Serial Communication Week 1
It’s here! Our promo video for the hit show ITP Wars is complete. And other than the fact that vimeo made this horrendous freeze frame of my stink-face the cover image, I’m really happy with the result. After last week’s review, the team got together and scheduled some time to shoot more B roll the next day. … Continue reading Video and Sound Final: ITP Wars!
For this week’s sketch, I wanted to make something a little halloween-y. I started with an idea to make some blinking bat eyes that would follow the mouse around, but after struggling a bit with the challenge in the quiz (and struggling to remember how I can , I decided to build on the intersecting-shapes … Continue reading ICM Week 5: Googly Eyes
Hannah and I got together this week to brainstorm general ideas for the midterm and get some practice soldering (she missed the demo and I felt like I could SERIOUSLY use some practice!) Midterm Prep After reading through the assignment description and bouncing a few ideas back and forth we decided we’d like to do … Continue reading P Comp Week 5: Midterm Prep
