What makes you feel close to someone and how can we create that over the internet?
Keep playing games with my heart(beat)
Communicating pulse through vibration is an immediate and physical way to feel connected to someone. It can be a meditative experience just to have your own heartbeat amplified and played back to you. The vibration mimics the beating, which has a therapeutic element, but the focus is on what [...]
Inessah and I continued using the heart rate monitor and wanted to see if you can train yourself to be more calm during presentations. We thought it would be perfect to test out during midterm presentations.
I was really nervous about midterm presentations and wasn’t sure if having a device strapped [...]
closer to home
Inspired by the discussions surrounding guns violence in the US and the idea that if people had a greater empathy for the victims of gun violence whose stories appear in the news, we decided to create a tactile way of bringing the impact of gun violence closer to home.
We designed two [...]
After coming to terms with the fact that I wasn’t going to be able to figure out how to use facial gestures to control a video game characters movements in Unity I scaled back to the idea of tracking gestures during experiences, in this instance – playing a digital space that I created for another [...]
Ingrid and I continued using the heart rate monitor and wanted to see if you can train yourself to be more calm during presentations. We thought it would be perfect to test out during midterm presentations. Since there was only one strap, I decided to use it for my actual thesis presentation and Ingrid [...]

We’ve talked a lot about anxiety reduction techniques. For the final, I would like to make a relaxation device (working title ‘PaZuZu’) to combine the effects a pet might have to reduce a racing pulse. Thus:
Pulse sensor (light + light sensor separated by thin skin)
Soft surface (fireproof fabric ideal)
Vibration (pager motor and [...]
I want to continue with this week’s assignment which plays with merging a subliminal image within a body of text. Using Processing and geomerative library to create a faint outline whenever the lines of the subliminal image crosses with the outlines of each letter in the text. Maybe playing with subtle color or stroke weight [...]
I want to continue with my GSR project of sensing how my body reacts to me exposing itself to different substances. In my last experiment I did GSR testing while I was sober and alone, sober with someone else and then under the influence of marijuana all while i was viewing myself on an ipad [...]
For our final project, I was a bit torn with feeling like I needed to do something in the P-comp vein. But, quite honestly, I just haven’t been able to come up with any solid ideas that involve my building something electronic.
That said, I have really enjoyed the Digital Footprint portion [...]
