Last day in Providence

I had been listening [...]

My grandfather

If you haven’t met my grandfather, then you might not understand my family or me. I’d like to think there’s a bit of my grandfather in me. His impression on my father is undeniable. If anything, I want to say my family is special. We’re exceptionally close;  no doubt from my grandfather’s influence. [...]

Washington DC day 1

I flew into DC at Midnight:30. My sister picked me up in her pajamas. I’d come to visit her and see DC. My parents had taken the family to the Smithsonians and monuments when we were in elementary. I remember running up down the hill of the Washington Monument with my siblings while my dad [...]

June 10: I've been learning ComputerVision, using Max/MSP. This work uses Infrared Red lights, on each block, as markers to indicate areas for social media artifacts to be projected on. Here are a couple videos I've made, as I learn a little bit of color tracking in Max/MSP. The next step is defining the rectangular area between the colored dots. And then putting an image in that area.

This semester has taken its toll on me mentally, physically and now emotionally. I feel like I've been sick for a month. I realized that I've a [...]
