Solar Powered Kinetic Instrument

making noise from Amelia winger-bearskin on Vimeo. We will make 3 boxes that play music and are powered by solar we can pull them into the park open them up and assemble the boxes in around 10 minutes   some sketches of the first box  

Homework 1.5 FAILED

LINK TO THE GITHUB GIST version of this code   //Based on example code from ‘movement’ section in processing book //modified by Amelia Winger-Bearskin Processing 2.1.1. i made this for MATH class and this is my attempt to put it into p5.js which is failed miserably…. var inc = 0.0; var b; var c; var […]

Homework Week1 mockup

here is a simple mockup i have for the choose screen of the app where you pick from which video you would like to view at any given time not final but just an experiment

Solar Work Value Machine

Inspired by the Eames “Solar Do Nothing Machine” This will be way to interpret the data from our qualitative solar powered data logger. We will create a machine that makes sound and is aesthetically (kinetically) Interesting and helps and audience interpret the feelings of value from workers in different neighborhoods of NYC.

Solar Powered Qualitative Wearable Data Logger

Me and Michael Ricca are making a solar powered wearable data logger for our Sustainable Energy Mid-Term.  You basic qualitative survey intake just got date/time/location stamped!  We are hitting the streets equipped with our solar powered wearable data logger and ask Manhattanites: “Is what you do for a living important?” This simple logger will be […]

Solar USB charger and mic prototype

Proposal for Mid-Term

Each performer in this algorithmic performance is both creator and audience . They embody a single node agent, they follow their own set code and the resulting performances is a model of an emergent system. This system is an intuitive understanding of a force driven graph drawing, however the visuals are senses and the data […]

Solar Battery Charger with USB output

Solar Panel 6V changed the cord to plug into a converter to charge the Battery Battery can output to USB to charge a cell phone however this will be used to power the Arduino Micro the the preamp for the Adafruit mic with preamp included on the chip. I built this as a phone charger […]

Atari Punk Console, Solar and Sensors

For the last 4 weeks I have been working with analogue synths in the hopes that it would lead to a final project in Energy. I was thinking about using all types of energy covered in the class and having an analogue audio response that would help to teach not only about the energy function […]

Presentation on Oklo Reactor

Link to Prezi Slides:   Nuclear power is created when an isotope, frequently uranium 235 (U-235), is bombarded with a neutron. The collision typically breaks the isotope into two pieces, each containing half of the neutrons and protons of the original atom, in a process called nuclear fission. During the reaction, a small amount […]

Algorithm Performance

Force Generated Graph Drawing Performance By Amelia Winger-Bearskin Force Generated Graph Drawing is an aesthetically pleasing way of drawng graphs with a computer. Commonly the algorithm will be used to generate visual nodes  that look similar to an atomic or astral structure. The physics involved in the algorithmic structure is based on Hooke’s Law: Hooke’s […]

Twerk to Make it Work

Prototype #3 Twerk to Make it Work Faraday Energy Generator  

MAKING THINGS MOVE—Velocity code 1

//Based on example code from ‘movement’ section in processing book //modified by Amelia Winger-Bearskin Processing 2.1.1. float inc = 0.0; int b; int c; void setup() { size(1200, 700); c +=15; stroke(c*5, c+100, 200-c*3, 6); smooth(); } void draw() { background(0); inc += 0.01; float angle = sin(inc) / 50.0 + sin(inc * 1.2) / […]

MAKING THINGS MOVE Velocity and Acceleration Code Project

Assignment: Identify where and how velocity and acceleration are being used and comment it for homework. Then rebuild or recreate your own assignment using these concepts. first is my commenting of code, next I’ll post my recreation of the code

Math for Artists ===Pi

here is the code with notation

Math for Artists

3 algorithms that I will be using for my 1st assignment: Backpropagation Sutherland–Hodgman algorithm Force-directed graph drawing Will be uploading my code and images of my Pi inspired processing sketch soon……

Twerk to Make it Work (2)

Yes me and Michael Oneppo twerked hard on this Faraday flashlight model power generator.  This can be deployed in any type of environment and emergency to both bring light and American Culture to those in need.  Twerk to Make it WORK! We made this as our first project in Jeff Feddersen’s Energy Class at ITP […]

H.A.U.T.E. glasses at HUGE wearable event

“Google Glass has revolutionized the way people make fun of wearable tech. But being-ripe-for-parody aside, there is no doubt that wearable tech is here to stay. Many of us have thought about purchasing a Pebble watch or a Nike Fuel Band, and these well known products only scratch the surface of what’s possible with current […]
