As training to make our very own exhibits someday, my class is making dioramas of a daily ritual from our personal lives.
I chose to demonstrate the daily ritual of wireless communication!
This post is a summary of the work and learnings from ITP’s Soft Sensing class.
In addition to making the conductive pompoms seen above, In this class I:
I created a digital self portrait in the form of a ‘waveform mashup’.
The waveform mashup is a visual abstraction of waveform data from my ‘Top Songs of 2017’ as defined by Spotify.
Before the beautiful viz is made, data must be bent and molded.
Last week I went to the American Natural History Museum through the lens of a museum/exhibit critic.
I remember as a child and young adult the museum seemed impossibly big. Yet this time, through this lens – and thanks to the dozens of other times I’ve been here – the space was totally manageable.
I performed a 5-minute audio-visual piece at CultureHub for an audience of about 50 people. Here is a recording of it – the piece is called Big Dark Age.

Revenge of Left Shark is an interactive rhythm and dance game. In other words, DDR with your hands. The game uses computer vision to place the player on the beach, supply visual cues and provide real-time scoring information.
700+ lines of code later, a simple game has been fully created from what was once a tiny idea.
As a group performance, me and my team (Huiyi Chen & Fanni Fazakas) created an object theater installation & performance called No ∞ Symphony.
The piece is an expression of the modern version of the story of Sisyphus – suggesting that life is an endless cycle of actions and choices.
