There's no fridge in this joint. For my final ICM project, I plan to expand upon the Drag & Drop Utterances project I began for the ICM midterm. This project will harness the power of Processing, the ITP vocabulary and computer displays to create interactive utterances.
Feedback from the midterm presentation generated a number of ideas I may explore with this project:
- Changing up the words over time - by parsing from "The List," news sources, StreamITP.com, Twitter, M-W Word of the Day, SMS text messages, words submitted through online form, or from ITPedia.
- Creating an ITPpoetry Twitter feed - after this week's applications presentation, perhaps feed the Utterances to StreamITP?
- The project could be used for project management/brainstorming sessions - if the appropriate words are used. This could be cool!
Step 1: Create one magnet on a plain background: http://itp.nyu.edu/~kjk311/ICM2009/poetry/
Step 2: Create array of magnets, with word on them (such as KAT)... and make the width of the magnet correspond to the length of the word. http://itp.nyu.edu/~kjk311/ICM2009/ICMfinal/iteration1/
Step 2: Figure out how to drag and drop the word from one location to another.
Step 3: Create a list of ITP/poetry words to use... or figure out how to parse a limited number of words from multiple sources.
Step 4: Create array of word objects from list.
Step 5: Place the array of words in random order in the "word bin." Figure out how to select, drag and drop them without screwing up anything. Have words shake when another word is removed from the bin.
Step 6: Create background - possibly a brick wall, possibly a Processing window (void setup, void draw, etc.).
