Nothing Week 2 Seeing is forgetting

It’s super interesting that we can actually get to know the process of Irwin’s works and those stories behind them through the reading. Irwin keeps answering questions from himself, and then the way to find the answer leads the path to his works. It’s a very good example that shows how artists think about their…

Worlds on Wire Week 1 First experience with Oculus

I’m pretty satisfied with my first experience of Oculus and I tried some awesome VR pieces. The most impressive one is the one that playing with a robot, in this piece I keep grabbing things, clicking things and waving hands. The feedback that when I touch something, controllers vibrate and sound effects undoubtedly enhance the…

Nothing Week1 F For Fake

What is real and what is fake? This movie makes me doubt the authenticity of everything that we believed. It’s hard for us to test and verify something is real or fake such as an art piece. What’s the difference between the drawing of Elmyr de Hory and the drawing of Picasso if these two drawing are…

Unity Character

About this piece, it’s my first piece of unity. Not much to say, basically I just follow the tutorial and got a free scene in the asset store. But it’s still exciting to make a piece like this. The next step is add some collision to objects, so the character won’t go through cars and…

Pcomp Final- Waterfall

Our final idea is based on our midterm project: Instead of just using virtual water, we added real water into out project, exploring the line between the virtual world and reality. And because of that we are going to use real water, we cannot use monitor. As a result, we decided to use projection and…

Inspired by that people dance in bars along with music and beats, Yifan and I are considering that if we can control the music and beats by our body language. And this another example of dancing with visual change and music beats. So basically our ICM final is : Dance Movement Tracking & Visual Representation…

Final Project Plan

Our final project changed a little from the initial version.  Because we are gonna to deal with real water, if we use traditional monitor to demonstrate our sketch, it will be a lot of glass boxes, which we worried that it’s  not clear enough, people may get confused and then affect their experience. So we…

Pcomp Final Project Concept

Based on my midterm project. Physically input controlling visual water in p5 is my midterm project. One idea based on this is to project the sketch to a wall and use sensors or Kinect to enable people playing with the visual water (not necessarily water). I thought it would be fun and would attract people…
