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!
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.

Entering the Experimental Interaction classroom, I had no idea what we would be expecting. We could assume that it would be about different modes of interaction from physical to spacial but we never really thought about internet.

It was really interesting walking around the school, like a visual diary, and the way we interact to a camera is a very different experience when you are walking by yourself or with you friends.

I grew more comfortable and even enjoyed it. I like the aspect of doing a dual broadcasting, where my Read more →
“You’re in Randall’s class, aren’t you.”
It’s bizarre to think that the physical space is converted to moving images on a screen, and yet the presence of multiple broadcasts all happening within the same physical space allows one to recreate that physical space through an intangible form.
And at the same time it reminds me of one of my favourite Read more →
What was my social broadcasting experience like?
This is my first social broadcasting experience and I was hesitant about it initially because I don’t like filming myself and hearing my voice on video especially. But to my surprise, the broadcast was pretty fun and I wasn’t as self-conscious as I expected myself to be. It was fun seeing everyone else having Read more →
It didn’t feel like anything special when you were holding the phone, seeing your face on camera. But seeing everyone’s videos together on the live broadcast was really nice to watch.
