Project description

In the 1970s space colonies were considered to be a viable alternative to a life restricted to planet Earth. The design of cylindrical space colonies, starting with Werner van Braun's 1954 "Marsprojekt series" and taken to the next step 2 decades later by Gerard O'Neill,...
Last week a workshop was given by our TA, Jacob on the basics of Arduino gave examples on how it could be incoporated into our own projects. Arduino is a chipboard is able to take data from different hardware sensors and bring it into processing. Jacob and I discussed different methods in which an Arduino could be used to take data from a heart...

funny how naive i was to think that by changing environemnts I could change the way people think. And so naive of me to think everything is black and white. but now, i realize how relevent artificiality and misinterpretation is in my life. irony of being immersed in nature and beauty tangiblity, but living like robots. programmed to work, do what...

We have an urge to build. Nature is treated as a side-order, becoming an attraction and a marketing tool. At one point we came from nature, now we package and sell what is left of it in holiday safari trips. Why do we disregard nature as a habitat for humans and immediately build? Why should nature be reduced to symbolism, poetics and abstraction...

So, with classes, extracurriculars, and the rest of my life sabotaging my project, I have found that the footage I find of my living atmosphere must be powerful, and perfect. However, that has proven to be difficult so far because of circumstance. I do not have my own car to travel to possible locations, bad. Locally, UCLA does not provide...

I've realized that I'm obsessed with places and spaces, I know that. I'm very much a visual thinker, interesting enough one of the people I researched was a visual thinker too, Nikola Tesla, not that I'm as brilliant as him. I'm getting off the the point, I'm obsessed with these spaces, especially secret spaces, hidden places, the unknown;Deep...
