Final Project- Moony

I’m happy to say my final project turned out okay, considering I didn’t have the physical component added as planned. I initially started with an idea of a functional DIY turntable that created a scratch effect using a MousePressed P5.js function combined with several sound files (see sketches below). I researched a few  DIY websites…

Final Project Proposals

For my final project, I decided to focus on my moony work from week 8. Ultimately, I’d like to turn the spheres into DJ turntables and playback two selected songs. Additionally, a crossfader switching between songs would be AMAZING.   I already have two songs in mind to play; they’re actually looping uncontrollably in my…

External Media Sketch

This assignment was very challenging for me, I spent almost 10 hours working on the audio file and visual aspect of the code. The initial idea was to create a cool trance-like visualization with a smooth instrumental as the background sound. I wanted to use the MousePressed function to start and stop the music and the MouseMoved function to…

Week 5- object-oriented sketch

This week I piggybacked one of the example codes because I really enjoyed the output. I replaced the smiley face emoji with one of my favorite and most controversial artists in music today, Mr. Kanye West. I’d really like to work with him one day; he’s talented, inspirational and highly opinionated. I could listen to…

Week 4- Re-organizing your code

So this week, I reused Robot Jordan  to reorganize my code. I was able to get everything out of the draw and setup functions so I decided to get fancy and add some bionic bouncing arms. I started with a var = hands function and tried to create a new function from var. I find…

Week 3- Collaboration

Week 3   This week we worked on ruled- based animation, motion, and interaction. We were paired in two’s and had to swap and integrate our work. My partner Vince and I were off to a great start. We had great ideas – a robot named Jordan who would release a ball with the MousePressed…

Week 2- Interactive

I really wish I had something more exciting to show you. Yesterday was so weird; Murphy’s law x 100. I decided to make an interactive sun to help cheer me up and change the energy around me. I had a great idea in my head (as always). My sun would beam rays and smile right…

Week 1- Create your own screen drawing

I’d like to call myself a technologist, really. I always find ways to involve technology into all of my interests. Music, coding, urban planning, social issues, photography, video and fashion integrate computation in some shape or form for me. For example, I’m interested in researching ways to develop a music recommender system using data visualization….
