Week 3: Conditionals

For my third week in ICM, I created a rule-based animation that incorporates motion, interaction, and a user interface element.

The opening screen is a red button with the title “Do NOT click the button.” […]

Week 3: Color

For this week in visual language, I created six square compositions from five colors that represent me. I chose the colors from my laptop wallpaper, which is an album cover from one of my favorite jazz artists Nujabes. Additionally, one of my favorite shirts has a similar color pattern. I used Photoshop to extract the […]

Week 2: Setting up a breadboard

For this week in physical computing, I experimented with using a breadboard. In my multimeter, I inserted the Black probe into the “COM” jack, which represents ground. Then I inserted the Red probe into the “V” jack to measure for voltage. When I touched the two tips of the proves together, the meter beeped correctly. […]

Week 2: Animation, Variables

Link: https://editor.p5js.org/nickgran321/sketches/dcMAZeHv3 For the second week of computational media, I created a few elements. The elements are either controlled by a mouse, change over time independently of the mouse, or are different each time the sketch is run. I chose to not create too many variables because I wanted to thoroughly understand how each one […]

Week 2: Typography and Expression

I redesigned an airline ticket by Delta. To redesign the ticket, I first grouped the information together. For example, the departure and boarding time are on the same line. Additionally, the origin and destination are on the same line. I aligned the type boxes on a grid format. I organized the information well by separating […]

Week 1: Poster Analysis

The grid system for the “Taxi Driver” poster is highly organized. Vertically there are four lines and horizontally there are six. The sign on the left and the parking meter on the right are equidistant from the borders of the poster. The main character’s head is in the middle of the picture horizontally, which draws […]

Week 1

Link: https://editor.p5js.org/nickgran321/present/ETqCGF-RV I am excited to experiment with p5.js! I am not familiar with computation, but I seek to apply the skills that I will acquire to my political projects. In undergrad, I majored in political science with a focus on conflict transformation. I seek to develop interactive technology that may serve as a unique […]
