With the intention of bringing awareness to the unseen effects of language, I created a physical device that responds to the mood of emails. After several form factor iterations, I decided to go with quite a literal shape of a plant – taking inspiration from the movie ‘E.T.’, whereby a potted plant would mirror E.T.’s [...]
As a non-verbal/digital gesture, Sue, Allison, and I made a brooch that conveys the mood, and approachability of the wearer.
Using the three colours to signify the following:
- Green: I feeling happy and open, feel free to approach me
- Yellow: I am somewhere in between, you can talk to me, but make it meaningful …
- Red: Stay [...]
As my final project, for this class, I am looking to make a kinetic sculpture that reflects the current ‘mood’ of the ITP email list. By running the live feed from the emails, being sent by ITP students, through metrics – such as the number of positive vs negative words being used, and the originality [...]
Initially, I am looking to find scenarios that lend themselves to temporary ARTattoos … for obvious reasons. I came across an iPhone application that uses AR markers to have animated girls appear, and dance to any music you select on your phone.

Have each person secretly write on a post-it note the name of a famous person. Keeping the name hidden, stick the post-it to another’s forehead. Each person [...]
In preparation for next term, I have created a reading list, a reference list, and a list of keywords that relate to the current iteration of my thesis project.
The Door to Your Unconscious invites you to look through its keyhole, to see things repressed in your unconscious – it is an ode to Freud.
By incorporating video, Alex Vessels and I, will be showing some fairly common ‘traumatic childhood experiences’ which, Freud believed, get repressed and lead to the suffering of ‘repetitive distorted emotions’. [...]
At the core of my research is the subjectivity of experience – looking at whether there is is an objective reality at all, how perception and context shape our experience, and ultimately whether there is a bigger system that strings everything together beyond the causal reality we perceive.
My investigation started with the quantum theory, looking [...]
At the centre of my thesis prep exploration, is my interest in our subjective perceptions of reality, and how these shape our individual experiences in life. I realise that this is a very expansive topic, and that I need to start off with bite sized pieces. Marina, my thesis prep professor, suggested I start off [...]
