Parallel circuits & Illustration project (Week2)

  • Parallel circuits

This toy has four separate parts. When one part sticks to another part, both parts will light up. When four parts stick together, all the lights will be on.

My illustration is about a Chinese love legend.

The Cowherd and the Weaving Maid, who are once a happy couple, become stars separated by the Milky Way. They can meet only once in a year when magpies fly together to form a bridge over the Milky Way.

Touching world (Week 1)

This project is called Birth Installation, which is designed by Sebastian Wolf, Julien Simshauser and Claudia Symank.

It’s an installation presenting a new world to audiences with animations. There is a physical thing called Mega Joy which is made of conductive fabrics. Audiences can touch the body of Mega Joy or bend its tentacles to interact with the animations on the projection to see different worlds.

This project combines digital media and physical interaction. People can actually touch the physical thing to interact with the digital world. I think physical ways of interaction can give audience more real feeling of communication. I’m also interested in combining physical and digital ways of interaction to help people communicate with each other. That’s why I like this project.
