Blippar Doge Demo

Blippar doge demo from mostlyHarmless on Vimeo.

I am a huge fan of doge, so this week I’d like to bring my favorite meme to life.

At first, I created an animation using Processing and exported it as GIF. However, I found it no way to show any gif on Blippar (it only shows a blank white image). So I have to change another plan and save some frames of my processing sketch.

GIF created through Processing

I removed the black background of the images and turned them into transparent using photoshop for better AR experience.I tried to make a stop-motion animation using these images, unfortunately, I didn’t find a way to arrange the time for showing up of different images. So I had to change the original idea and make separate scenes for my story.

Geometry in Architecture

Inspired by zach lieberman‘s  Land Line (https://medium.com/@zachlieberman/land-lines-e1f88c745847), we want to build a similar application as final project.

Living in New York City, we surround by buildings but they all look like cubes. But there are many interesting buildings in the world with various shapes. In this project, we want to introduce these architectures to more people.

The interaction would be: the users could draw any geometry on Ipad and then the pictures and information of a random architecture with this geometry will show up. We will use  dollar gesture recognizer to recognize user’s drawing.

The program also calculates the coordinates of the starting point, ending point, and centroid. For further development, we’d like to try to match users’ trails with the edges in architecture.

Final Project: Decent Dialogues

Inspiration and Intention

As a foreigner, when I talk with people in English, it’s sometimes a little bit embarrassing. Like when people ask me:”How’s going?” I’m always not if I should answer like “good”/”fine”, or answer it with more details or emotions to show my respect – cuz in China, people never greet by asking questions.

Final Project: The Red Rope

It’s a Japanese and a Chinese legend, and according to its legend, God of old lunar matchmaker, also nemed YueLao, ties an invisible red string to the ankles of the two fated person. The two people connected to the red thread are destined to be together, regardless of time and space. Continue reading “Final Project: The Red Rope”

Songomancy

Have you ever noticed that you start singing a song sometimes and the lyrics are directly reflected upon your life and what you’re going through at the moment? That’s the way in which songs will interact with you as a means of providing messages from your spirits or whoever you interpret as “God”, but the songs are carrying the message that you need to hear that correlates with or directly applies to your life. That is what I am calling Songomancy.

Inventing Oracle Deck: Ask And Test

This week, I was inspired by Kate Crawford’s article “Asking The Oracle” about the intentions of the supplicant and the outcomes from Delphi, that also draws an analogy to the searching queries and Snowden’s database:

Over time, I’ve come to think of it as a contemporary experience of the Delphic Oracle: you ask something and receive cryptic information that may offer you some answers, but only by raising more questions.

Body Re-Architecture And Texture

Body Re-Architecture:

1. How does it change the body’s architecture?

The sketch changes the orientation of parts of the body, which replaces the legs with arms and vice versa. It provides some kind of upside down illusion when people move.

2. How does it make you want to move? Continue reading “Body Re-Architecture And Texture”
