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 →

It is interesting how the Internet can bring everyone into the third place, where we can share what we experienced in the 15 minutes at the same location on the little screens. In the past 15 minutes, I tried to interact with people who are watching the live broadcast although I might not know them. Also, I started talking to Read more →
