Mapping erosion levels

admin » 16 May 2009 » In mfa, works » No Comments

Here’s a map of the space from the data gathered.
On the left is a map of numbers.  Each number relates to a pixel in the sculpture and correlates to the number of times that area was walked through.
On the right is a choropleth map showing levels of erosion in shades of grey (white = no erosion / black = highest erosion)

here’s some possible ideas for gathering input data and displaying output data for my thesis.
Basically, the participant changes the sculpture by walking on the tiled floor that responds as a button press and in turn adds height to the sculpture.  The floor is translated to the wall as a 3D surface.  I am thinking of using a natural material like wood.

Hallway with interactive floor tiles and moving wall.

Little Big Planet

admin » 24 September 2008 » In h.a.i.t. (how awesome is that?), mfa, works » No Comments

Over the weekend, Parsons hosted a gameJam where a ton of teams (120 people) worked for 24 hours to create new levels for the upcoming release of Sony’s Little Big Planet. I was on a team called “Pretty, Pretty Princesses” (aka P3 or Pcubed for short). We had 7 people on our team, but 3-4 who were dedicated enough to stay all day and night building the level (i was not one of them). But I did contribute by working on the conceptual idea of “washing machine” for our level theme. Our team won a $500 prize! WOO HOO! And will be featured in a Parsons World in the release of the game next month (h.a.i.t!?).

Special thanks to LeAnne for taking on the role of team manager and organizing the whole sha-bang and to Tu for his expert sketching, game mechanics and logo work.
Super duper thanks to Jessica, Umi, Akiko and Rabia who did the heavy lifting. Damn! Nice work ladies.
