Here is a really interesting project where sunlight is used to project poems on the ground. The poems change according to the angle of the sun. Check the video!

If you are interested in seeing Into Eternity, you can find the whole movie on youtube.

I think we talked about the movie at some point, but just as a reminder, it’s a documentary on the safety and technologies of nuclear waste storage. It’s made in 2010 and has some really beautiful footage. Visually entertaining at the same time as very educational. A bit like our unit!!

Hi! Sorry for the late update, I have had some technical problems… but here we go!

Responding to Brief Part 02 ā€“ Dial ā€˜Sā€™ for Sentient

The scenario that I am investigating, is based upon a proposal put forward by a group of Japanese politicians. They are suggesting to build a backup city for Tokyo, so that important functions could instantly be moved and get up and running during a case of emergency in the capital.

Through the concept of backup, I am trying to make comprehensible how essential human networks in urban Japanese environments work. I will also investigate if and how backups for these key functions could be conceived in case a disaster would disable the existing human network structures.

At the moment I am testing prototypes with expanding/contracting spaces adapting to human interaction. The aim is to create a principle for a multipliable and scalable component that reflects the structures of existing networks, and through layering of events over time adapts to create a spatial backup network.

Arduino experiments by mcasselbrant

My experiments this week have been to create a structure from very minimal material (wires), which will expand and define a space as large as possible. The movement will be controlled by a piezoelectric element which will send data through the Arduino board telling a motor with a pulley to open the wire structure.

Pre-Japan movie: Enter the Void by mcasselbrant

I don’t know if anyone has seen this movie, but it’s a really interesting and good movie set in Tokyo. It is also extremely disturbing, so maybe don’t go for this movie if you want to feel good after watching something fun. Very much sex and drugs and some violence, and it definitely shows a side of Tokyo we will not even get a glance of. I find this movie to be a masterpiece, but some might hate it… But seriously very strong scenes, and also, maybe not suitable if you have epileptic tendencies.

Here’s the official trailer of the movie, Enter the Void by Gaspar Noe

I have the movie if you want it.
