For the web design project Imagine a Spectacle it’s been decided to enable users to draw in a given pad on the side of the informative web-page. This is a planned as way to enhance their involvement with the page and improve their online experience through an interaction which conceptionally fits the idea behind the Imagine a Spectacle Creative Festival. A very primitive version of the pad can be seen below. Just start drawing.
The other day I figured out that I don’t really like mondays and I decided to get rid of them. This is actually possible for me to achieve with the help of my Innovation project, which will enable me to practice freelance webdesign. Finally I can have 7 fridays at a week.
you can be ‘better’ after your 10.000th picture.
the sound which the user starts should be continuous, meaning it mustn’t be interrupted when a they change a button.
The sounds the that represents city in the other paths for the city to should be: people talking and then if the take a second step in to the grey the user should hear city scape.
(Type-thinking) so what happens when users go to green from blue?They should start with birds and bees, then get to more serious animals.
what about to blue from green a river that trespass, then (maybe) something that can generate bigger waves.

and this to be experienced on Saturday the 22nd of May wuhuu! (yikes)
_stick to the black stripes
_contextualize the subjects (subjects might be shot in a studio.)
_an online gallery which plays with the idea of privacy
I am on a subject hunt at the moment and also brainstorming about the possible approaches to the finished portfolio website.
and this project is to be titled, “I am so private !”
Being immersed in to the the externalities of the world in a very simplified, shirinked and reduced virtually real environment.
A room / A projector / A flash based interactive website / 12 buttons attached to the As / for users to interact.
Approach suggestion #1:
Having colours (empowered with sound efffects such as, city scaipe, animals, wave, heartbeat)as minimalistic representives huge space that is naturally or artificially builded around us (city, jungle, sea, body , desert). The sounds and the spaces will be represented by plain colours (grey, green, blue, red, cream).
As the user advance towards the room, by activating the buttons by their steps. Colours get darker and sounds get more intense (faster hard beat, a more crowded street in the city, more animals in the jungle and stronger waves).
Approach suggestion #2:
I also have fleeting ideas about having a game inteface for different set of profiles, but this is to be considered and structured with a better fashion.
Having watched the documentary on street photography called “streets off
limits” and being re-briefed about how should the project should be
approached. I’ve decided to play with the idea of the “security stripes”
(as I would call them.
My approach will be to take images with the subjects
having their eyes covered by black1 stripes with their hands, and the
image portfolio will be presented / published via a (striped)website.
It is amazing that as a sub-team for Interaction Design-II that we are so interested in brainstorming, debating, chatting about whatever we would like to have as our room based installation, we might even forget that if we are sure to check we have valid access to use room with a projector for our installation.
For installation ideas it’s been discussed to simulate a fall, a birth, or a game/puzzle, but in the end it’s been decided that being all too immersed in our medium itself we become very subjective about what can be done with it, for my part I am going to take couple of days of from thinking or reading about Interaction Design installation.
Viva: a team reflection on what has been experienced via the journey of setting of a company, running it.
But as like other beautiful homework this one lacks the good timing (comes at a time there are thousands words to be submitted). Fortunately, Sesami is responsible, willing and hard working as a group.
Having the time to think about my street off-limits brief gave me the idea to challenge the iconic monuments of London’s with Macro photography. Obviously nothing will be in focus but are their images in our memory, and my photography strong enough to enable us to recognise them in those blurry pictures? Here is an example;
