- Finished reading Speculative Everything, should have done it earlier lol
- Better understanding of how a speculative work should be like, and how it is approached
- Some parts I don’t agree with, but I will still respect the ideas.
- I will be applying some of the new knowledge into my thought process
- Sketches of the form of Chronophone
- Tried wire prototyping with the forms
- Able to get the form in 3D well, I’ll continue this prototyping method for future model testing
- Tried more user testing with the sound
- Worn it for about 2 hours per day
- Able to remember vaguely 3 types of frequencies: 0~10mins, 30~40mins, 50~60mins
- I think it works enough (backed by research too) to say that it works. Mark says I don’t have to really do all the tests since its not really crucial when I show it to others, which I think is quite true..
- Exported 24 hour sound, proving that it’s not too taxing on my computer to export more of such files.
- 3D model (having some difficulties here 🙁 )
- Heeding valuable advice from prof and Mark and modifying my project so it’s better
Not so important for now:
- think further on the sound — doesn’t have to be the tones, it can be more imaginative and customisable
- I want to still think about the form as I don’t think this fits very well
- Now I kinda don’t like that it’s referencing cyberpunk aesthetics and I want to try to form my own aesthetics (after reading speculative everything)
Focus now will still be the 3D model and getting the form out so at least I have something to work with, then I’ll work on the other parts. Doesn’t matter if I don’t use it in the end, I think.
