Workshop @ CMU: Reading and Writing Inhabited Space

This Friday I’m speaking to the Electronic Media Studio: Introduction to Interactivity students at CMU.

I’ll give a talk followed by a workshop and demo exploring artistic applications of smart home technologies. Topics include wireless sensing, computer vision, and machine listening to create narratives of inhabited space. We consider the creative possibilities and personal consequences of life with ubiquitous sensing, perceiving machines.

Amazon Cloud Research Grant

I’m happy to say that I received an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Credits for Research Grant to support my digital arts research! The grant supports proof of concept research to employ the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) as a platform for my machine listening, structure from motion, and computational photography work as part of the Rover project.

 

 

YSU3DP Workshops 2016 – 2017

I am running a series of hands-on workshops in 2016-17 to introduce students, faculty, and staff to 3D printing and rapid prototyping technologies. These classes will familiarize the YSU community with current trends and possibilities in digital manufacturing, introduce the significant 3D printing resources and research on campus, and provide participants direct experience with printing tools. Finally, these workshops aim to raise the visibility of YSU 3D printing research, and contribute to a community of interest around the technology.
