Project Hyperessay #2 – Technical Realization
I went to try having both YouTube Live and Periscope on at the same time. As periscope had more people watching, it was more interactive on periscope.
It was also quite different having to broadcast on two different platforms and also have my friends in front of me.
People could hear what I was doing in the room over the internet Read more →
Project Update 2: YouMAP Night Experiment
The previous experiment was in daylight, everyone awake and the streets busy with something or someone. The noise was a distraction and so were the visuals.
Hence to fully experience dependency on the Google Maps, I decided to take the experiment to the night time and to go through a path that I am aware but am not sure or have Read more →

I took a few videos this week using a GoPro, trying to figure out a way to show a different perspective or perhaps a different way to represent the idea of a network. In many ways the experiments did not work, however they served to lead me on to a better idea for my project.
Below are some very short clips Read more →
Project Update: YouMap Experimentation 1
So for this week, it was all about experimenting and trying to see how it flows.
The objective was to be able to consciousness focus on the google map to navigate myself to a destination without paying attention to my surroundings visually.
Previously, I had already experimented in school with regard to the way it was to be captured.
Initially, I planned to Read more →
Connected in the First Space
I tested my idea again using a similar set up to last time however this time I tested it with only one person. I sat on the floor with a pile of paper ready to hang up on the wall as we talked. I also had coloured paint this time to emphasise emotions, while this was handy at times Read more →
Escaping Too Soon?

Right off the bat, here’s the final image of the first Hyperessay post so I guess it’s only right to start this project update with this image as a talking point. This image sparks some positive conversation last week and I agree that this image have so many layers and conspiracy theories to unfold but that’s for another paper. What Read more →
I went to try a little trial for the final project and tried to choose the right title to ‘hook’ the audiences. Even though, I did it in the afternoon I had a few audiences from different countries.
I realised that it was better to not put the country where you come from because some people might not scroll to Read more →
Final Project Update 2: Methods/Setup
Previously I was working on collecting screen recordings and thinking about how I can make use of the inbuilt screen recording function on Quicktime to capture my working process. I was quite comfortable with the approach, until I started using Periscope more after the micro-project we did on it a few weeks ago. I enjoy using Periscope quite a lot, Read more →
Final Project Update 2
I tested out my idea to have myself in the physical space while interacting with people in the third space. This essentially makes the paper a interface for me.
I found this to be very difficult to execute. There is a large time difference for me to write or draw a response rather than speak it which often killed Read more →
Final Project Update 2: Methodology and Try out
So after discussing with Randal, I am now trying to create a virtual vision that uses perhaps apps like Google map to navigate myself soley. So the use of eyes is only for precaution but not for the navigation other than looking at the Google Maps device or app.
So I tried this one in School and it didn’t really go Read more →
