ITP Week 6: Midterms!!!

This week’s blog post includes updates and assignments from the introductory courses to Physical Computation, Computational Media and Fabrication.

This blog post is a work in progress 😅

Computational Media

This week we learned about objects and functions. I improved on my previous sketch of a redacted FBI Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) file here. See more documentation under “Physical Computation.”

Physical Computation

I connected my FOIA sketch to my arduino with serial communication. Now you can control the redactions with a sensor that is a potentiometer. I’m interested in exploring this idea and building out an installation for it as a final project. I’m reading Simone Browne, Edouard Glissant, Christina Wake, Ruha Benjamin, Nicholas Mirzoeff, adrienne maree brown, and more to help inform the work. Image description: TBD Image description: TBD

Fabrication

I made a fan zine with a motor with a fan attached to it, cardboard and an accordian fold zine. Documentation coming soon.
