Assignment Brief: To design a space in a two-part project (#1 Analogue, #2 Digital) that responds to the theme: SPACES for CONNECTION, COMMUNICATION & INTIMACY.
Response: During this time of uncertainty and anxiety caused by COVID-19, spending time quarantined at home during the Circuit Breaker and having to return back to school and work after has brought out an unusual feeling that I have Read more →
Upon the completion of the mid term projects, we were tasked to further develop our concepts with the help of technology for our final project. My mid term project was titled Dis-harmony, a simply anamorphic perspective installation of a bonsai tree made out of found objects. The concept behind it was simple: to find harmony in the chaos that Covid-19 Read more →
Let’s make some fabric sensors !
First off, all credit to kobakant, for their amazing work. Superb repository! I am not going to talk about how this thing works, because I didn’t invent it, and also they do it much better. Hard-soft connections can be found Read more →
WARM-UP THE NEW NORMAL
PLEASE WARM YOUR HANDS
Many of us had difficulties adjusting to the new normal as we found ourselves suddenly held to a whole slew of restrictions. Safe-distancing measures place crosses between us, discourage us from talking to each other and gathering in large groups. They challenge our ideas of proximity and relationships Read more →
A series of installation stations where participants establish dialogue with each other only via audio. Each station will explore a different aspect of the phenomena of ‘audio’. What type of sounds are evocative or highly sensory? The two participants form a closed loop with each having control of what the other person is hearing in real-time. They Read more →
Problems:transmission of touch was limited to only sitting up and down sound was almost non-existent distance was too close for much impact
Ideas:overhead shelter that doubles up as simple mode of interaction; grid of free-moving leaves above, supported by net-like structure, users can tug on the net either side, like a primitive and limited form of interaction a double sided acoustic guitar in the Read more →
I started the design in CAD, after having a loosely similar sketch. In the first iteration, the sitting area was much wider, basically a 1m x 1m square. After all the design was done, I prepared a cutlist, and upon realising the ridiculous amount of wood the design required, I had to go back to the digital board Read more →
BODY-POWERED SEAT WARMERCONCEPT
The installation explores other ways we might feel each other in a shared space (presence), that might have greater effect in compelling us to engage with each other – where merely seeing and/or hearing each other can still fall short. While physically apart, can we also feel each other?
The table invites two people to Read more →
