This week I’m thinking about how to make text based mediums dynamic. I’m still very inspired by Simone Browne’s Dark Matters. Here’s my work in progress sketch of an redacted FBI Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) file.
Thinking a lot about modest materials and tools, recyclable and sustainable practices in making objects that people from low income backgrounds like myself will find accessible outside of ITP. I made an enclosure out of cardboard with standoffs. I used a box cutter and awl to make it work. Planning on connecting my potentiometer to my this week’s computational media sketch to operate as a mouse or slider.
