Exploring the Forms of Sea Levels in South East Asia

I’ll be looking at the emotional aspect of how the seas in south east asia can bring – Whats different about the seas in south east asia? This project is inspired by the trip to Bali with my friends over the holidays. We rode our scooter bikes to several beaches a day, and some of the seas were friendly, gently washing up to our feet, while some were deep and troubled, crashing against the rocky walls, beneath the Tanah Lot Temple.


In my project, I aim to translate the sea levels in visuals, portraying the emotions through aesthetics using processing. I wish to incorporate sea pollution when the seas get more troubled and choppy in the work, while starting and ending off in a light mood.

Wind of Boston: Data Painting

by Refik Anadol


Wind of Boston: Data Paintings is a site-specific work that turns the invisible patterns of wind in and around Boston into a series of poetic data paintings within a 6’ x 13’ digital canvas. By using a one-year data set collected from Boston Logan Airport, Refik Anadol Studios developed a series of custom software to read, analyze and visualize wind speed, direction, and gust patterns along with time and temperature at 20-second intervals throughout the year.

Waveform Structure done through processing

Below i tried to achieve the 3d form using illustrator:


Needless to say, it looks pale in comparison but it’s just week 2… We’re getting there!

I’ll be researching and looking at process projects that inputs data into particle systems.

Week 3

Second idea/alternative

I realised syvelster is doing something similar and he has posted his idea before mine so i have explored a second idea/concept for MAN.

Box – Illusions of a plain white wall


I came upon this video last semester while doing research for viscom, and the video has been on my mind since then.

If it’s possible i’ll like to challenge the 2d plains of the LED Screen by creating 3d visuals.

Creating a physical world people can walk into – WHAT?!

Honestly its freaking cool and i have no idea how to do it but im gonna try to use Cinema 4D and adobe after effects and we’ll see about that


ok peace
