Re: w10 & w11 Final Project

Autonomous Flying Artists: This gallery installation would utilize Vijay Kumar’s “Autonomous Agile Arial Robots.” As the name suggests these robots are completely autonomous and are able to react to moving surroundings with incredible reaction time. Their success is due to an algorithm that the robo...

Re: w09 Final Work-In-Progress

project proposal: The robots I researched are capable of calculating their positions relative to the objects in their surroundings; this allows them to fly through moving objects. I thought it would be interesting to create an interactive piece where the viewers could change or move the objects in t...

Re: w08 Expand the Vision

1) Eye Tracking I was introduced to this technology through Mick Ebeling’s Eyewriter, which allowed a paralyzed graffiti artist suffering from ALS to communicate and create drawings through his eye movements. With further research, I discovered how the technology works. With enough money and medical...

Re: w05 What is an Image" harold Cohen

In his article, Harold Cohen begins with a description of AARON, a drawing machine that is able to make images through mathematical algorithms. AARON is an interesting creation because it takes the image creating process, a process that has always been reserved for the sensible spectrum of human tou...

Re: w04 Classification

Classification: The criteria I used for classification refer only to the bottom row of photos rather then their monotone counterparts on the top row: 1) Each photo that I added to this collection was shot with a macro lens, or is at least extremely close to the subject, only showing the fine details...

Re: w04 Classification

Classification: 1) Each photo that I added to this collection was shot with a macro lens, or is at least extremely close to the subject, only showing the fine details that we do not usually observe at first glance. 2) This close-up perspective leads me to the next similarity between the images; each...

Re: w03 Roland Barthes

For this assignment, I chose to talk about a Trojan condom ad rich with unspoken meaning. The denotation, or literal image depicts an interesting day at the beach. The first thing to catch my eye was the woman in the foreground reading a book entitled “No Time for Swine” while an obtrusive pig snout...

Re: w02 Chronophotography & Marey

From what I read in Stephen Mamber’s article, it is clear that Marey was curious about the way the world works and he used time as his medium of exploration. By capturing moments in time, he could speed them up, slow them down, pull them apart and study how they connect with one another. For instanc...

The name camera obscura comes from the Latin work meaning “darkened room.” Just as the name suggests, the camera obscura works by filtering light through a small hole pierced in one wall of a darkened room, focusing the light that passes through it and projecting an image of the outside world onto a...
