Chapter 2-New Beginnings

This is about project number 2. I have started researching this project and came up with some projects I love and have some sort of a rough idea on how I could execute but may need to better align with some guidance.

Project Idea 1: Walking Among The Stars

I have always been very intrigued by the stars in the sky and have always wanted to learn about the constellations and how better to learn about them then to walk among them and interact.

Proposal: Create a project mapping solution that will show the sky in it’s entirety and project from the ceiling to the floor. As you are walking along the stars the constellations outline themselves and show you information about them.

Start with an environment like this:

Then have something come in or overlay that looks something like this:

Maybe when you walk close to the constellation it triggers this above effect? or the star projection is over outlined information that uses the conductive ink and then a voiceover comes on and tells you about the constellation that you traced?


Project 2: Giving Love Lucca some Life

Last semester I created a brand for pitbulls called Love Lucca (

I would love to give this brand some legs and maybe start showing lucca in a more interactive way. Use this project as a way to introduce the brand in an interactive way.

Proposal/Some ideas:

  • Community activities-following Lucca’s breed ambassador’s through the community ie. start at home then take the kids to school and interact with them before the day starts, then visit a community center for some socialization, then go to a park to meet up with friends (show how the breed is friendly), like a day in the life sort of thing…need to develop that more.
    • Maybe do an animation and use fiducials to tell the story. (like Elam’s project)
  • Create a set of interactions that tell you more about the positive aspects of the breed and how owning one will change your life

Inspiration of a poster that has the idea of what all the parts I would like to make interactive (all of the activities done in word treatments could inspire animations??:

Or a 3D poster series on adopting pitbulls and using some of their best attributes to create 3D posters:

Project 3: Finding Your PAWfect Match

This would be an interactive matching game that would project the results onto the wall when you are done choosing all the filter points. Or it can be just interactive on a touch screen using filter results like the burger-capitals project below.

Quiz I found that has some great filters:

Somehow I would need to match the filter results to an API like

But I am thinking it would be set up something like this:


Inspiration for something that was interactive in a more tangible way:

Or I could set up something more like what Burger Capitals did:

Project 4: Musical Exhibit or Series of Interactive Musical Posters

Could be activated either by touch or by walking by, you could make your own music all on one poster or you could effect the music and visual that was displayed by your proximity:

Maybe using the theory behind these Nervous Strings and adding some music to it. The closer you get the louder and more intense the music is and the further away you are it gets softer and more soothing.

For this you would need elastic, lighting from a projector and a sensor that would sense movement and trigger the light movement to the projector and sound to be played from a speaker.

Or it could be more of a poster series that would play different instruments and if you are in a group of people you could create your own band using the different posters:

or just one musical poster that takes you on a journey through illustration or design:

Each of these posters would need conductive ink and an amp and a way to incorporate attach the individual sounds to the poster.

So this is what I have spent the day on. I think I will keep on thinking but if anyone has any thoughts on what I have put together let me know…cause I feel like I have created a ton of rabbit trails and I think someone needs to slow my roll lol!
