@ Daphne Ngatimin

Leaping one step further into expanding the digital world and innovative platforms, such as Linux or GNU, Randall Packer went ahead and expanded these innovations by creating the Open Source Studio (OSS).

The term open source originated in the context of software development to designate a specific approach to creating computer programs. Open Source Studio (OSS) is a joint, Read more →

Daphne, this is a great summary of OSS and how it emerges from open source thinking. I am very appreciative of your enthusiasm. A few points of advice: be sure and also explain what we mean by open source by directly citing from the essays. And more specifics regarding examples of open source software besides OSS (such as Wikipedia), as well as the creative practices resulting from open source thinking as cited in my essay. And also, if you are drawing specific references, be sure to use quotes so it is clear what is your writing and what you are citing.

For this project, I was paired up together with Jocelyn, who happens to be my junior college classmate and now hall mate. Okay back ground Info time~

Cutting the long story short, Jocelyn and I met in Nanyang Junior college in 2015 as we shared the same form class. Both of us belong to a close knitted Read more →

@ MoonlingGraphics

(Had to post this as a video because I was having trouble embedding the live video into my post!)

So Francesca and I were paired up for our first micro-project and we decided to do a “Journey to the East/West” video! Our live performance is a juxtaposition between where we live in Singapore (and we ACTUALLY do stay at opposite sides of Read more →

Very interesting and compelling juxtaposition of the elevators! We'll discuss further in class.

@ Francesca

Journey from the East to West


This tele-stroll is a collaboration between Yue Ling and myself. As Yue Ling lives in the west and I live in the east, this tele-stroll compares and contrast the differences between these 2 sides of Singapore.

Very impressive and detailed description and breakdown of your project. I was able to grab the video from Yue Ling, but all of yours are unavailable for some reason. Can you check to see if your Facebook account is set to private?
Hi Randall, I've changed the video settings to public, you should be able to view it now!

Summary on Sida Vaidhyanathan’s article

Open source is originally a software term but it has since been used as a collaborative and creative term. The concept of open source was created as a response to the proprietary model. The proprietary model was deemed as selfish, restrictive and limiting because of copyright. Under this model, big software companies had the rights to refused Read more →

Excellent essay, and I liked the fact that you brought in a few examples that were outside the readings. This demonstrates originality of research and I am very impressed. You might also consider the Hive at NTU, where rooms are setup in groups, or even our room 2-23, encourage open sharing and interaction between students as another form of the art of the social practice. Your essay is extremely well written and well-referenced. Great work!!

Summary and Reflection? Here we go! To kickstart the topic, I have included a video which may clarify anyone’s doubt on the idea behind Open Source concept. The explanation is simplified into a straightforward yet uncomplicated comparison to the notion of LEGO building.

Open Source, as the name suggests, is referred to as a Read more →

Good examples! Like the lego video.
Thanks, Bella ;-)
Excellent! Sorry I am just now reading your post, I somehow missed it last week. You covered all the essential points of open source thinking and your essay is well researched, and you show a good understanding of the readings.

@ hello

For this project, I was paired up with XiangRei, who happens to be one of my ex classmates from our previous school, Nanyang Junior College. We discussed about the telestroll and wanted it to be kept relatively simple- no need to travel outside of NTU, no need for fancy tricks in our video. The main point of our Read more →

Glad to see you are working hard to get the tele-stroll working. Are you still having trouble getting it into landscape mode? Let's discuss in class.

Micro-Project 1: Experiment in Social Broadcasting

Doing the Broadcasting

Going live on Facebook is not necessarily the first thing I expect out of the first lesson of Experimental Interaction. Nonetheless, it was spontaneous. I did my live broadcasting in a vlog (video blogging) style. The content was the one I was worried about, what am I going to say? What am I going to video? Will it Read more →

@ ♡♡♡♡♡

This was such a cute activity though awkward because I barely know any of my classmates and we had to do it around ADM where so many people are just walking around and staring. To be able to see all of the live videos together on the live wall so intriguing. I love it!

@ Jasmine

This was honestly quite fun for me especially since I have never done a live anywhere before be it Facebook or Instagram. I did not know what to film as well so I just went around school filming the structures in school and my classmates. I also captured a short scene of the barbecue happening in school haha.
