Many of these students are getting their first experience of coding using the Jave IDE, Processing. For a early assignment, students were required to create a pattern with randomized components. Nested for loops to create the grid, functions create the various pattern elements, and an array that stores a color palette.
Students created application prototypes in response to an ethnographic research project they conducted. Flick Hunt This search function was built for film buffs — people who know names of actors, directors, movies, etcetera, and may want to dig into a particular artist’s catalog.

In the post 9/11 time frame, Arabs were depicted on TV with varying degrees of authenticity. This work invited users to upload images of their TVs while displaying Arabs. The depictions of Arabs were graded on multiple scales, including militarism, wealth, hostility, exoticism. A 3-d arcball-style visualizer presented the graded images as a landscape of depiction.
My Life Designs sold a simple, elegant, and highly personal product: high-end semi-custom photo jewelry. However, the purchasing experience was so challenging that few customers could actually navigate the process. The pages shown above are part of a larger report that detailed the client’s customer typologies, identified key points of failure, and proposed actionable solutions.
For this project at CU Boulder, students created artwork or toys using scrap electronics from multiple sources. Sources included dead CD players, disk drives, printers, scanners, telephones, and much miscellany. The source electronics were disassembled, and parts, including LEDs, chips, motors, belts and gears were repurposed into new works.
Mutual Assured Deconstruction is a performance devoted to exploring the spatial dimensions of networked space. An archive of the exhibition is saved at the Rhizome Artbase of the New Museum in New York City. The piece was also presented to the Association of Internet Researchers, in Maastricht, Netherlands in 2003, and at the SIGGRAPH Web 3d exhibition in St Malo, France.
