Shipwreck Society, presentation

This is the presentation Eamon and I did for the findings of our joint research project about both Shipwrecks and Muriquis.    Sources The call: ❂ Failure in conserving Muriquis + “It’s not just numbers, it’s dynamics.”: ❂  The Power of Environmental Narratives: ❂ Cod food web: ❂ “Ultimately art does…

Listening to the user

(This is in relation to my ongoing Online Wayfinding System project.) Listening to the user This week I conducted a survey. The main thing I wanted to learn about is whether users feel overwhelmed about their open tabs. Specifically, how many open tabs they often have open, what is…

False Starts and Happy Endings: Making a pen holder

For my Intro to Fabrication class final, I was a bit lost. My first inclination is to do something that mimics the aesthetics of butterflies, but I wanted to do something functional instead. Making pretty things is cool, but making pretty things that have a function is even cooler….

Shipwreck Society, research summary

Eamon, my partner in research, and I, have been thinking deeply about our joint research project about both shipwrecks (yay) and Muriquis, a particularly interesting semi-extinct species of monkeys. Because it’s been a collaborative effort, we have our notes in a google doc for your voyeuristic pleasure. (Only viewable if…

Slicing and Stacking

After a number of false starts, undelivered materials, and soul searching, I decided to use cardboard + vinyl as my material combination for this project. My self-defined challenge was to make it a 3D figure somehow out of those two materials. I played around with 3d models to end…

Code Planning

(This is in relation to my ongoing Online Wayfinding System project.) I think it is time to get my proverbial feet wet. I’ve recently started coding my way through the project, and it is exciting. The above is an outline I’ve put through to help guide my process.

Making A (Fictional) Dashboard

For this fabrication project, I decided to make an old dream come true by constructing some sort of a dashboard with buttons, knobs, and user interface details. The parameters of this project is a to build an enclosure with the needed components within and without. Since I am not…

Reefs are grownup shipwrecks

This is a summary post that serves as a snapshoot for the interesting things I recently learned through my research of the subject of Shipwrecks, as part of the Temporary Expert class. Reefs are grownup shipwrecks 1. Shipwrecks are accidental shelters for marine life. Predators and sedimentation are things…

Operating On The Concept of Shipwrecks

Inspired by Marina’s conceptual research operations (Analogy, metonymy, conflation, juxtaposition, amplification, exaggeration, speculation, mimicry, false methology, and the absurd), I decided to document the results of my asking the operational questions on the subject of shipwrecks as I progress in my research. The below is the google doc I am using…
