ICM Week4

This week, I got to know how to use a function that I create to organize the code. I tried to restructure one of my old sketches, and the code is significantly much cleaner. Specifically,  I created a function to draw a slider. This function includes two parameters: xlo and halfrect, which means the x position…

Video&Sound Week 3

This week, my group members and I had the brainstorm for the final video project. Because we are all interested in design fiction, which in my point of view is to design an imaginary solution solving existed issue or foreseeable issue. These are some ideas we came up with: A contraption like an invisible bubble that…

Pcom Week3

This week, I tried to code on Arduino and had a sense of digital input-output and analog input-output. As to this week’s lab, I tried a light adjusting LED, which would emit stronger light when ambient light is weaker. At first, the value that the light sensor captures varies when there is a different environment, I…

Fabrication Week 3 Laser Cutter

This week, finally, we learned how to use the laser cutter. Because acrylic embraces the property that it can transmit light, thus the idea that making a light bulb comes up. Firstly, I found the image of a light bulb and then put it in the illustrator and to be prepared of laser cutting, I…

ICM Week3-2

Another part of the assignment is to change partner’s sketch. This is the original sketch from my partner, Joohyun. I defined a variable pill, which can control if these two pill should be displayed. And I drew a button, when mouse pressed, it can return to these two pills. Besides, I added some randomness to…

ICM Week3-1

This week, I learned how to make a button,  slider, and rollover, which make ICM more interactive. I can kinda imagine using P5.JS to create a page of interface in real. And the second part of this week’s assignment is to read and change partner’s sketch, it is actually an exercise of making our own…

Audio Week2

This week,  we finished our group assignment. We recorded the audio in the building, which is inspiriting, Marco, Katya and I recorded every floor of our building. Afterwards,  we edited our audio separately, basically tried all sorts of different effects and ended up with combining all our edition together, making a unique piece of audio.

Pcom Week2

This week we have a little glance of Arduino and basic electronic components. Since I’m from Electronic Technology, I already familiar with those basic rules of the circuit. But I may have problems about the term of certain components or I already forgot most of my electronic knowledge. The assignment is to build a circuit with a…

Fabrication Week 2

This week, we have been taught how to use those big machines and all bunch of other useful clamps and jigs, which is awesome, I feel like I have owned all prerequisite to making a masterpiece, yet let me begin a small one. The inspiration of this week’s work is from an emoji of Wechat….

ICM Week 2

This week, I programmed a small game. 1.Draw an orange. Then I decided to add some randomness to the color and the stroke of the orange: 2.Next step: make the orange move. 3.Make a knife 4. What happens when the knife cut the orange. I was considering making the image frozen when the knife cut the…
