1:1, a look inside...

1:1 description

Furniture as a social media,
Conversations versus tweets,
The things between us,
Just between you and me.

1:1 is a project for Houston Community College southeast campus during my time as artist in residence. I sought to create a piece that addresses Houston Community College’s relationship with its surrounding community. Communication was the key to this and became the primary concept for the work. At its essence, communication is between two people, one person to one person.

Conversation versus updates. Today, communication and social media are increasingly entwined. Our attention is easily fractured by constant updates, tweets, alerts and texts. Short bursts of text can be useful, but serve as a poor substitute for a conversation. The prevalent form of 1:1 is a box, to sit on and to present each person as an avatar, a physical screen presence. 1:1 is a space for conversation without visual or audible distractions. Inside walls are lined with acoustic material to minimize sounds from coming in and going out.

1:1, just like skype and facetime, but without the time lag and infinite resolution!

...on making, a journey

sometimes, it doesn't go as planned, but it somehow works itself out...keep going

Design led vs. User led

I love this sort of article, reaffirming the leadership role of design. I firmly believe in this, and hope that with my work am able to be an example of this vs. just riding the wagon. via FastCo.

Among my favorite quotes, the apple design team's response to user centric design:
"It’s all bullshit and hot air created to sell consulting projects and to give insecure managers a false sense of security."

Camera that works like a 3d renderer...sort of

In some renderers,such as Maxwell, you can control light levels after the render. With this camera, you can control focus, after you've taken the picture!

more on the dao of steve jobs...more of less

"People think focus means saying yes to the thing you've got to focus on. But that's not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I'm actually as proud of the things we haven't done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying 'no' to 1,000 things." - Steve Jobs
