LED Arrays – Neopixel FeatherWing

Our new assignment is to make a creative animation with our Neopixel FeatherWing. I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t believe the example files that were uploaded for class were set up properly to take advantage of the RGB to HSB conversion table. I’m completely lost again, and really don’t clearly understand what I’m doing, feeling […]

Project Proposal 1: Generative Seasonal Poetry

Introduction I want to explore generative literature through two separate lenses: situational generators and linguistic generators. Situational signifies an open, organic system that can freely change based on the data sets that are being aggregated in real-time. Linguistic generators are closed analytic structures, such as Taroko Gorge, a generative poetry project by MIT’s Nick Montfort. I […]

What is Sleepcaster?

Sleepcaster is a modular bed mat that responds immediately to your specific comfort needs. Our topper is constructed from thousands of our live-responsive soft cells. Each cell has the ability to change height, width, and temperature. The result is a sleep system that can not only accommodate your perfect sleep support, but also provides an interactive surface […]

LED Arrays – Adafruit Feather

4/5/17 The assignment yesterday (4/4/17) was to program 4 LED’s flashing independently from each other with different fading effects. I’m currently stuck on only getting the first LED in the chain lit. We wrote some complicated (to me) code to control the timing instead of just using a simpler but less efficient delay(); function. I […]

Project 1.2 – Live Performance

After playing my initial sample for class, I was encouraged to explore tactile sound design to foster a more analog-centric performance. John Cage’s Water Walk was provided as an example of experimental analog music. Keeping simplicity in mind, I started building instruments out of things lying around my apartment and the following instruments took form: Analog Noise […]
