Pcomp Midterm – Numbskull

PIN
With my partner, Simone Salvo, I created a “talking” skull, which would play a Donald trump quotation sound-byte, display a corresponding fake tweet, and flash red, white, and blue eyes – all activated by a hand press on Dostoyevsky’s The Idiot. In creating this project, we used Arduino Uno because it gives out higher voltage[…]

ICM – Week 7 Assignment

PIN
This week we were tasked with cleaning up the code from last week’s assignment. Frankly, I found that my code was clean and satisfactory, without redundancies, so I added an outro level to my animation exercise that prevented my users from surpassing 100 cat clicks. The ease with which I was able to construct this[…]

ICM – Week 6 Assignment

PIN
This week, our class was expected to create a sketch with constructor-based objects, and explain our sketch. I decided to continue on an original idea I had had, a balloon popping game, utilizing new and old skills from throughout my projects. I used arrays to generate my cats, and the transparent “button” ellipses that allowed[…]

Match Watch – Process

PIN
For my final project in Comm Lab, Video & Sound, I collaborated with Youngmin Choi and Julie Lizardo to write, direct, and edit a commercial for the fictitious product, Match Watch. Match Watch would be a surveillance service for couples to keep tabs on each other to a toxic degree by utilizing contemporary surveillance technologies[…]

ICM – Week 5 Assignment

PIN
This week, my class was expected to represent our comfort in defining our own functions and creating objects. After some practice, I felt very comfortable using these tools – and utilized some old code that I had used to make balloons float, to make a pattern of multiple bubbles floating. This was satisfying because I[…]

ICM – Week 4 Assignment

PIN
This week, my assignment was to present my competence using for loops. While thinking of projects I often came up with ideas that relied on more advanced concepts – specifically arrays and objects. Initially, I tried to create a yahtzee-esque game, which I intend to complete once I have a mastery of arrays, and particularly,[…]

ICM – Week 3 Assignment

PIN
This week my partner, Ashwita, and I expanded on my initial balloon popping game concept. We wanted to expand the concept by being able to generate multiple balloons, have those balloons change colors in a non-monochromatic range, have the balloons be pressable buttons (instead of relying on a general mouseClick function), and to incorporate a[…]

Match Watch – Storyboard and Synopsis

PIN
Our project is an infomercial for a product called Match Watch. Match Watch is an application and digital service designed to help partners keep track of their significant others through questionable surveillance means. Our infomercial will depict a scenario where the application would be necessary, a description of the product, testimonies pertinent to the success[…]
