Week 4 – Sensor

I created a pressure sensor with paper, conductive fabric, and velostat. The more pressure the velostat has, the brighter the led becomes.

Week 2 – Illustration_”Smile.”_Modern Times _1936

by Xiaofeng Lin

I combined two scenes from Modern Times: the assembly line and the “smile” scene at the end. The goal is to lay my own perspective of the simple “Smile.” silent script over the life of the man and woman as if they live on the mechanic, industrial, and forced assembly line at the time.

Week 1 – Inspiration

Takashi Aoki’s installation Bloom Skin is a computer-controlled kinetic installation for the window display of ELTTOB TEP ISSEY MIYAKE. The installation took place for promotion of their newly adopted fabric called Organdie, a super light and thin cloth. A custom software in openFrameworks to control the wind movement with multiple fans via DMX protocol. The work is a simulation of a natural form, one that is fluid and smooth. This in a way shatters the fact that the flow is controlled by a computer program.
