Semester 2 arduino project

  1. 1. MA Design by Practice Semester 2 Practice Conclusion: Arduino project
  2. 2. The Phantom (i.e. invisible) Ball <ul><li>application of phenomenological & ontological concepts to an interactive design space </li></ul>
  3. 3. ideas & influences <ul><li>Merleau-Ponty: “My existence should never be reduced to my bare awareness of existing, but that it should take in also the awareness that ONE may have of it…” </li></ul><ul><li>Dourish : “The body, in Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenology, plays a pivotal role in the mind/body, subject/object duality with which Husserl had struggled. For Merleau-Ponty, the body is neither subject nor object, but an ambiguous third party.” </li></ul><ul><li>Heidegger: “Once we start using it to hammer a nail, it becomes “ready-to-hand”: we act through it, and in a way forget that it’s there. Once we stop, it’s “present-at-hand” again. What’s important is that it disappears through use but can always come back.” Teinaki, V </li></ul><ul><li>Noe: “We have wide minds.” </li></ul>
  4. 4. visual ideas 1: kicking cars
  5. 5. Kicking – comes from a photographic snapshot – dasein project I liked the link between the “dasein” concept here & the “phantom ball” project, the kicking of something invisible.
  6. 6. visual ideas 2: tug of war
  7. 7. “ Being-in-the-world” – a clear image here of how we engage with the unreal or in some “external” experience in an interactive design space. Out of it came the IR & emitting beam for my project (now a laser pen).
  8. 8. Visual ideas 3: image projection - net
  9. 9. The experience goes much further here – throughout the net & all over the (virtual) world. It questions “being-in-the-world” and raises all kinds of “ontic” issues. In my project I’m interested in the reaction of the participant and his experience.
  10. 10. Visual ideas 4: lights & colour
  11. 11. LEDs – a no brainer, once I’d decided on lights for the reaction to the kicking. Here it’s an extreme but fantastic example of the potential of light in visual space!
  12. 13. I like the idea of a door (internal norm) being outside in an external space. The children don’t appear to question its existence and pass through it without noticing. Invisible?
  13. 14. visual ideas 5: floating in space
  14. 15. The design aesthetic is interesting in that a human being has become part of a “replicated” pattern, seemingly like an object.
  15. 16. time to visit the blog……. <ul><li>http://polyphemeofcymbria.wordpress.com </li></ul><ul><li>to have a look at some of the important details of the project…….. </li></ul>
  16. 17. some “dasein” to end?
