Erin and I revisited “Who’s your baby?” this week. We tried out different “random” functions that Allison provided but had a hard time understanding how most of them actually work. We found the middle square method, n=6 slightly less abstract and hence decided to apply that to our new project “Random Fruit Baby“.
In my past six years of living in NYC, I have gotten to know the city pretty well. I have observed challenges in terms of real estate, gentrification and cultural appropriation that New York has undergone and would like to take this final project opportunity to voice out one of these issues.
I have seen MoMA’s permanent collection several times during my past six years living in the city yet it is always a different experience when you go see an exhibition or collection with a specific purpose. In this case, it is to keep in mind what we have learned so far in terms of different concepts of illusion. I found a few pieces that I wouldn’t usually ponder about before ITP.
In the Prologue of Einstein’s Dreams, Lightman scrutinizes the notion of time through different fictional narratives that revolves around the theory of relativity.
Inspired by the concept of automatic writing, Erin and I expanded our T-eye the Knot business. After the first step of wedding song consultation comes the service of receiving a message from your future child. Intrigued? Continue reading to find out more.
The field trip to Material ConneXion parallels the experience of a kid in the candy store. There were so many samples that you can not only look at but also touch and feel. I think Softgel from TechnoGel Italia was my favorite from the visit.
In response to last week’s lecture, Erin and I decided to start T-eye the Knot, a matrimonial divination firm.
I took a trip to Home Depot and here is a list of interesting soft related items I found:
1. Bendable Retrieving Magnet. I think magnets are very fun to work with and I am quite amazed by the flexibility of this small piece of magnet strap that can reach almost any place that small metal objects can fall.
This week, we experimented with three concepts: looking up the stairwell, fake door and peephole.
After researching on inflatable silicon objects and installations, I knew I want to make something coming out of the wall. There were many different directions to take yet I was most interested in making a “kissing wall” with multiple lips that will respond to the user’s relative distance to the object. Due to time restrain and limited knowledge in 3D modeling, I made a mini lip blowing bubble as a starting point.
