The Difference Between ITP and MIT (Media Lab)

As an ITP alum put it:

I kind of think of it a bit like this:

Of course – a lot of this appears to have been shot at ITP.

Thesis: Running a PC Fan with Arduino

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

Now that this is working properly, I have to try out higher (and unfortunately louder) CFM fans.

Here are some online references to the Spring show that include my Zoetrope!

And while we’re at it, a reference to the video installation Patrick Grizzard and I did for the Winter Show:

PComp: Here and There Updated

Sunday, December 7th, 2008

Video installation that combines live & recorded video within a recreated cinema setting, using a video camera, projector, screen, theater chair, ambient lighting and audio appropriated from classic Hollywood cinema. When the viewer takes their seat, the lights go down, a scene of a movie theater is projected on the screen, accompanied by the soundtrack to Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 classic Vertigo. A live video feed of the viewer is composited with recorded video of previous occupants of the seat, transposing the viewer into a virtual audience onscreen. The “virtual” audience, ghostly and semi-present, disappears and reappears in different seats throughout the auditorium.

Here and There is informed by an engagement with and interest in the following ideas and themes: Duality and nonduality. Presence and absence. Trace and index. Spatial and temporal dislocations and the experience of being in multiple places or times at once. The question of what it means to view oneself in the act of viewing. The porosity/instability of borders between private and public, self and other, viewing subject and object of contemplation.


PComp: Here and There

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

Patrick Grizzard and I are doing a video installation for our PComp Final.

Here’s the description we submitted for the show:

Video installation that projects the viewers body into a virtual cinema audience that functions as a trace or index of previous viewers.


Video installation within a recreated cinema setting that combines live & recorded video. Using projector, screen, theater seat, ambient lighting, four curtains, video camera, audio. Viewer sits in chair triggering lighting fade and video recording. Video feed is composited with recorded video of previous occupants of the seat, transposing the viewer into a virtual audience onscreen. The “virtual” audience will also be semi-transparent (ghost-like), appearing and reappearing randomly in different seats. The video will be accompanied by sound composed of samples of effects and audio from various films.


Nonduality. Duality. Being in two places at once. What creates a feeling of connection or disconnection? How is your experience similar or different from others? Experiencing something privately that will later become part of other people’s private experiences. The experience is both shared and personal.

PComp: Week 4: Analog Out

Monday, October 6th, 2008

Servo motor: Used photoresistor: when hand was very close – it shook more.
int pulse: 350 – small resistor
int pulse: 0: large photoresistor – less control
Running my hand over made servo go left and right
Serial 220-390
Near: right. Far: left.
analogValue = 200

I didn’t know it was directional. The flex sensor didn’t really work, but I think I just need to make adjustments to the code. I used my hands and touched the exposed wire and that seemed to generate a better response.

Pressure Sensor (FSR): press – right, let go – left: most responsive

Also used pot with one 10k resistor, but when turned all the way up – started burning. When turned all the way down, it shut off.
