First day back at University was a productive one. After going over the brief we got into groups and showed each other out Christmas research. I found that some people looked into the customisation of websites and podcasts about poetry. I liked the idea of using podcasts to bring poetry back to a more verbal language as it is generally seen as textual now. This was similar to what I was talking about with using video in my research. Seeing and hearing a poem will alert your other senses which will make us better understand and interact more with the poetry.
We also thought of questions for specific groups, ours being for surreal dark poetry enthusiasts. We thought of 4 questions we would ask them and 4 questions for an individual from this group. Here is an image of our work:
After working on this and listening to others in the class I felt more interested in reading and dealing with poetry. There was some great discussions today and I am looking forward to the next class.
This week was about showing our first prototype to the tutors and class. We had one issue with our prototype, the ethernet shield was not connecting to the network because of a security issue. I have giving my shield to the tech specialist, Ali, who is currently fixing the issue. We showed a video of the printer working, you can watch this above. We received some interesting feedback and it got us thinking about focusing our project to a smaller group of users instead of having a tweet printer printing anything you wanted. I set up a Twitter account that Prints Tweets of New York’s Weather & Sunrise Time 15 Mins Before Sunrise. Also Prints Tweets Of Sunset Time & Current Temperature 15 Mins Before Sunset. Here is the link to the Twitter Account >>> https://twitter.com/1NYCWeather
Last week my group and me got together and tied up a few loose ends and completed the Gemma Mathieson App. We showed her the app on the iPad for some user testing and she loved it. There was some minor complications that were highlighted as she did not know how to exit from the video player. However this was beneficial to us and we then went back a stage and corrected this. This is why user testing is very important as you could easily miss something that a user might not.
We also presented our app to tutors and held an exhibition. This was a great experience as we got showcase our work and also look at the others groups’ work. This also helped me gain some experience on holding exhibitions and I look forward to doing more in the future.
My previous blog on this topic discussed the brief and some of my initial ideas. I am now pleased to say I have completed this task and you can watch my concept video at the top of this entry.
It is based on an art exhibition for artists to showcase their work in a new innovative and interactive way. The app iExhibition lets viewers have full control of a gallery by selecting an image then swiping a copy of the image onto the wall. You now have two copies of that image: one on your phone and the other on the wall. You can use your device to resize, move and rotate images around the exhibition space. There is also an option to allow the user to create a more real environment that brings the art to life. You set the theme of the room so you actually create a new environment that reflects the art work on display. There is also a feature that uses augmented reality that shows a live description of the artist and their work by hovering your camera over an image.
This has been a very interesting project and has let me feel creative in new ways. Creating a concept video and not actually creating the finished app was new to me and it was a great way to explore new innovative and interactive ideas.
Yesterday in our groups we looked at the D&AD Brief in detail and created mind maps that helped us break down key points from it. The D&AD Brief is about creating an app that will make use of multi-screen purposes and will relate to augmented reality. We are not needed to develop this app but come up with a out going app that we can convey in a two minute video. This is a difficult challenge but an interesting one as you can let your imagination run wild with creative ideas.
We then talked among ourselves our initial ideas and noted them down. We then expanded them until they could not get any more exaggerated. We are keeping it slightly linked to our artist app in development in this module. Here is some of my notes from today’s class:
During this week I will keep thinking and adding to my notes to let the creative thoughts flow.
During the past few weeks a lot of information has been collected in relevance to create an app for an artist. This week we concentrated on putting this information together in a short video highlighting the key ideas we got from Gemma(the artist we interviewed). This was an interesting task as we had to breakdown all the data we gathered to fit a 2 minute video. We had footage of Gemma making paper, her work, some landscape footage and an audio recording of the interview. We used iMovie to create the video.
While doing this we broke down our information into categories and wrote on post it notes all the key ideas Gemma gave us. We also dissected quotes from the interview and added that to our sheets. This process helped us create the video as it showed us what the main ideas were.
