Designing interactions, fashion, and the future of stuff. Working with code and form.

I am from California. I studied

"The Adventures of Captian Bric n' Brac" an interactive puppet play in 3 acts. [Processing] You can try it here.

Miscelleum & etcetera

Things I make and other short projects that don't need a whole page but should go somewhere. Some things that got to an interesting point, but I never finished completely. Some half-baked ideas.

Keep scrolling for an ever-changing selection of random amusements. There's food too.

A Vimeo visualizer. [AS3] Never quite finished this, and they changed the api so I would have to start over. Also, this is what happens if you're debugging and make too many calls to the Vimeo server. (and you thought the blue screen of death was scary)

My book design from type class. I found this nice ridged, glossy paper stock that printed beautifully through the inkjet for the cover. They discontinued it a few months later. :(

A book examining portions of paintings by Ingres, focusing on color. I played with how the ink sometimes shows through the paper. I also drove people nuts as I punched holes.

An idea for a side-scrolling RSS reader. [Processing] Setting columns of text in Processing is really a pain, worse if you somehow want it to look like cities. This would work better in javascript. Screencap shows that brief period in time when the Facebook friend feed RSS was available. Privacy issue yes, but you could have made some many cool things!

I made this Processing cake for a class exhibition. Then I had to make an Arduino cake too of course.

The blue on the Processing cake is tinted white chocolate. The teal on the Arduino cake is tinted marzipan. Play buttons are very tasty, esp. when they're chocolatey.

With a lot of CSS, Craigslist can look entirely different!

They say that the ancient greeks invented animation: if you turned the vases really fast you could see the figures move. This is like a greek vase animation of the story of Sisyphus, only flattened, and you need a mirror.
