Processing is an amazing language. Personally, I did not enjoy Java very much when I took it last year. But Processing (pretty much Java) throws out any “programming hatred” I had and welcomes me as it is geared towards making visual pieces. Plus the programming is relatively simple, pretty much all that is needed to know is the basics of Java.
This piece, visualization of sound with Processing, maybe something I might want to try…(being an ICAM music major).

For our second project, we had to do a transmedia project. Our group had the idea involving shoes and some sort of fetish and a man named Sam Burtoff (completely random name, any coincidence is unintended) as a commentary of multiple internet personalities that people can have on the internet. (e.g. Joe has a professional-looking Facebook, but his youtube has videos of him drinking).
Our execution of the project was not very well. I think it’s safe to say we didn’t develop the idea well enough. I hold no one in our group accountable for the mess up, we were all part of the group and had equal responsibility. We just had some miscommunication and last minute changes that did not benefit the project.
Sometimes people mess up. The important thing is accepting it, understanding what went wrong, learning from mistakes, and moving on.
The link above was my contribution to the project, and contains pictures of a lot of shoes.
Paul Ripke - Kindsköpfe
Procrastinating led to discovery of this work. This work is by a German artist, Paul Ripke, and is a series of photoshopped images. I thought that this piece was clever, but such a simple idea that is executed well in a unique way. (Clicking the photo links to the website with more images).

My project was a representation of searching for the name “Lalli Flores.” It is very detailed and best described as a diagram. I wanted to show every option of search in an organized way as a comment of the Internet and its vastness of data. I also wanted to reflect the creepiness I felt when I first heard about this assignment, and I think this adequately reflects this by showing that the search of “Lalli Flores” leads to all of this data and various outlets.

Project Glass: One day… (by Google)
Google unveiled “Project Glass" today, an augmented reality device that would be worn by the user in the same fashion as glasses. It’s a pretty cool idea. Here’s what the Google+ page for Project Glass has to say:
We think technology should work for you—to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.
A group of us from Google[x] started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do.
A unique camera known as the Lytro allows users to capture what the company calls “living pictures.” It works by capturing the light field: all of the light traveling in every direction and every point in space. (A traditional camera that captures only a single plane of light). Because of its ability to capture the light field, the picture can be focused and refocused anywhere in the picture. Check out the example of a living picture of two cats below:
