We’ve made some changes to the project since the ICM final presentation on Tuesday, which I wanted to make sure to note before making final documentation. We’ve updated the BOM to reflect the changes. It is available on Google Docs here. We may update a few more things in the next few days and we’ll make sure they are reflected in the doc.
About the Project
Beats Exposed is an interactive performance experience that breaks down the barrier between audience and performer. By exposing the body’s vital signs, the performer invites the audience to see beyond the polished act and into the extreme physical and personal effort.
The components that we ordered for the wearable came in last week. Thanks to Aaron’s pcomp genius, and help from some folks on the floor, we **drum roll** got our first prototype of the pulse data going to a P5 sketch.
I’m excited to be moving forward with the wearable pulse transmitter for my pcomp project. The idea has grown into a larger collaboration with Aaron Parsekian and Danielle Butler. The three of us will be collaborating on the physical computing components. Aaron and I will be collaborating on the ICM components. Here’s a link to the project outline. Here’s a link to the tag on my blog for this project.
What is it?
Humanizing Performance (working title) translates an aerial performer’s vitals and/or movements into visuals and lighting.
Recently the satellite DSCOVR started sending back multiple images of Earth per day and Nasa has begun sharing them online as they have come in. This is momentous. Although many don’t realize it, there are few photos of Earth as a whole from afar. The images, found at epic.gsfc.nasa.gov, are spectacular.
Our assignment this week was to use the DOM library of P5js. I’ve been wanting to integrate HTML and CSS into my ICM work for a while, so I was surprised at how frustrating I found this assignment.
Ok, I promise I’ll stop using the assignments to work on Trumpong soon, but the past few assignments have fit so perfectly into developing the game, that it’s hard to resist.
