So for my lamp I settled on a lamp that can be used by a bedside, a headboard, attached to a window sil, anywhere you might need some quick light at night. It is mainly intended to provide two modes of light. Temporary, and continuous.
After speaking with Liza about a variety of ideas, we agreed on one project that follows along with the class’ theme of material exploration, and a minimalistic aesthetic. I plan on creating a lamp, that can – be lightweight be easy to interact with be flat-packed and reduced to a small size be produced with [...]
I’ve been fiddling with the fireplace idea for a few days now and over the course of it, I’ve learned a lot more about coding and arduino and how all these numbers get crunched. I’ve also learned that I’m rather crummy at coding, reinforcing and why I was never much good at algebra. Leave it [...]
Modular, lightweight, DIY light box. circumventing current models using CFL bulbs and bulky materials. Exploring the potential uses for so called light boxes, other than projecting light through a drawing etc. And that being said, how can a portable and modular one, build on that idea? Ikebana and vase reactions, kabuki dancing flower arrangements, [...]
In-class experimenting and rapid prototyping with copper fabric and velostat, exploring possibilities in creating simple potentiometers. Concept here is that rather than treating the velostat as a pressure pad / button to be pressed with a finger, we could use small clips to incrementally adjust pressure and conductivity, therefore incrementally adjusting brightness of the [...]
This was Agustina’s switch she made in class during our first verb based in-class activity. Could potentially be used for— -volume control-tug of war winner indicator -fishing bait/tackle eaten but no hook
Here is some documentation of the circuits I worked on. Limited materials still at this point. No where near as cool as Jeannette’s. http://keanferin.tumblr.com/post/42657670838 And current progress on the illustration bit, which I hope to print on vellum, and then then lay over another substrate to make a connection in which LED’s will glow behind [...]
Hey hey, Kean, 24, grew up on Long Island but I don’t have an accent, nor do I say Strong Island, and I don’t know where all the haunted houses and creepy streets are. Sorry. 2 years of community college, transferred to Parsons as a freshman again, did foundation, and a semester of product design. [...]
