Background: Voyager’s Interstellar record is a disk with encoded information that was attached to two space probes currently making their way beyond our solar system. The purpose of the Golden Disk was to be two-fold; on the one hand it was meant to communicate our existence to...
The intensive use and reliance of tools is a uniquely human characteristic. The use of tools to assist in accomplishing tasks in the analog, and now as well in digital, contexts have become essential to human existence. Furthermore the tools that we use are a reflection of our actions, our skills, our culture, and most importantly, our identity....

So... on the day we didn't have class we went to MOCA for the Lawrence Weiner exhibition. Brandon was the only one that brought a camera so we all used his to take pictures as proof that we were there. We had to be sneaky about it though because there were all these security people standing around. Hopefully there were no security cameras from...

When I look at the images of my past and the images from the present, I know there is a humanity to them, but how do I explain what they mean to me and how I relate to the rest of humanity? I find it hard to really grasp this and how I can truly lay this out and explain it. In many ways, I want to really just make scrapbook-like pages with...

Here is a list of completed objectives since last update: The low touch color spectrum is complete and has been applied to the book. The colors are more subjective than that of the high touch.

The colors associated with "low-touch emotions" are more subjective compared to the rather expected decisions for the HTS. I may go back & revise the HTS after all. It may also be wise to juxtapose the HTS & LTS on the same spread to emphasize a dichotomy. We'll see.

My book will, in hope, communicate the sensation of positive and negative touch through visual color references. The breakdown: By interviewing numerous individuals about the emotions felt when one is touched vs. not touched, I have come up with a list of 19 "high-touch" emotions and 19 "low-touch" emotions that correlate...

As previously discussed, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's concept of flow was initially very narrow in its application. Soon, however, other scholars started to apply this wonderful idea to other areas. One of the most important areas where it was applied was in sports. The idea that there is a mental state where a person can perform at optimum while...

Eroticism, as explained by French writer/philosopher Georges Bataille, is a very specific concept. Overall we can define eroticism as one of two (related) things: 1) a state where one is either sexually aroused or in anticipation of sexual arousal, and 2) the aestheticartistic spirit & depiction of sexual desire. Bataille, however, thought to...

The following is a list of moments when I have felt ecstatic, along with the reasons why I felt that way: • When I ran very good 5Ks that I felt I was in the zone. I felt no pain and felt like I could just keep going and going. I felt like I was going with the crowd, being carried by it, and that I just needed to keep doing what I was doing...

Hungarian psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi has done research into something he calls flow. Flow is a state of mind in which a person is totally concentrated in an activity and is and is at an optimum level of performance. This phenomenon was initially proposed by Dr. Csíkszentmihályi to be applicable in extrinsic applications such as...

While I attempt to map out my own life into words and images (hopefully later), I realize just how hard it is to convey an idea through text rather than through expression and movement of the body.

Human connections through senses: MEDITATION After thinking about what really makes us HUMAN in first place, I thought it is extremely important to fully realize ourselves and learn who we are. As a human being, we do have unique ability to use 5 senses;taste, touch, see, hear, and smell. All five senses play important roles in connecting...

In considering the idea of branding the human species, one thing stuck out to me the most, which is this idea that we are all somehow interconnected into a society of control, be it at school, home or the workplace. In researching Deleuze and Foucault's essays, I realized just how complicated the matter of "individuality" really is and...
