No, I’m not the one flying… I would like to see or sit in a cockpit on day though.

I sketched my Makerbot yesterday.I have used it in several design projects, design experiments, and even 3D printed little toys for my friends’ kids.

Have a good one!

Have a great day!!

VNoel-Thesis submission

Photo taken with theses before handing them over to the Department of Architecture here at MIT

It’s been soooo long! A lot has happened… and it’s been moving very quickly so hold on tight.. 😉

1. I submitted my Masters Thesis to MIT!!!!

My thesis was entitled “Trinidad Carnival: Improving Design through Computation and Digital Technology”. In it I argued that computation could contribute to design in the Trinidad Carnival by (1) addressing the dying art of wire bending, (2) improving design, and (3) fostering a more inclusive design process. The Carnival of Trinidad has spawned more than 70 carnivals globally. It is the most copied, yet most understudied carnival in the world. My thesis fills a gap in current literature by taking a computational and design perspective to this phenomenon.

2. While writing my thesis, I was simultaneously a Program Assistant for MIT’s Summer Research Program. This was so rewarding words can’t describe! I miss my interns.

3. I said “see you later” and spent time with some of my many favorite friends, family, and professors. Here’s one of the coolest cats I know, Marty Demaine. See you soon Marty!

marty demaine

4. I bid MIT farewell…Well done MIT, well done! You made me drink water from a fire hose… but it has shaped me into what I am 2 years later..

MIT

So my summer thus far has been filled with accomplishments, rewarding activities, and last but my no means least, I left the US to return to Singapore!!! I arrived a few days ago, so… stay tuned for more!

One a Day (OAD)!

Choosing ONE Photo a Day can be a challenge. It requires special discipline. Sometimes you could barely find one photo, and other times, there are too many. Do I choose a photo that reminds me of a happy moment? Or one that shows the result of my hard work? Or of someone famous? Or of the way a particular object was captured? Or a special moment in time? Or do I choose a photo that has a good story attached to it?… How do I choose? I’ll have to figure something out.

In the meantime, should I post more than ONE photo, I will explain why I did. Deal?

Digitally Fabricated Sphere

After doing some reading this morning I had a meeting. After that I went to the Fab Lab to cut this sphere that my professor and I were working on last semester. We are testing another method that didn’t work too well last semester. The photo above is one I took of inside the structure of the sphere, without the surface cells. I think it’s very appealing. Digital Fabrication is a lot of work, but rewarding. Seeing something you’ve made, something materialized, is very powerful, and rewarding. Why does ‘making’ give us so much satisfaction? It’s a question that continues to poke at me and will in my continued research.
Why I choose this photo – It is a physical manifestation of hard work, proof of work.

MIT School Ring

My second photo is of my MIT GradRat (school ring). I decided to purchase one last semester. For me it is a symbol of achievement and of belonging to a community. My friend Jenine and I went to pick up our rings, and I was surprisingly excited by it! We grinned, and placed each other’s ring on the other one’s finger. I have no clue why, but it felt appropriate, as though we were acknowledging a job well done to the other. It was a great moment.
Why I choose this photo –  It symbolizes and gives me the feeling of accomplishment shared by my friend and I.

Have a great one!

THESIS!!!!

Looking for designers to interview…

So.. I have been working on fleshing out my thesis proposal this semester… It’s quite an exercise which makes you think in squares, circles, and triangles. From choosing your thesis advisor and readers, to deciding on your topic, what you want to focus on now, for the next few years, what you want to do after your studies, what you want to do for the rest of your life, if you want to go into academia, the industry, whether you want to save the world, and if you have the time to do want you want… and the truth is, there will never be enough time.. I have to keep reminding myself that I should focus on “the” specific problem I am trying to solve and be clear on my contribution. I cannot save the world with one thesis…

My thesis proposal is due less than 4 weeks. My particular interest is in Design & Computation as it relates to culture and wearables/ architecture of the body –  I am working on the exact term that succinctly describes my proposed work.. There is much for me to flesh out, it is a work in progress. The context in which I would like to apply my research is in the design and production of “wearables” such as costumes and dancing mobiles. My specific context will be that of Carnival, Trinidad Carnival to be exact. This will be my specific context or case study.

Are there any designers in the costume/ fashion/ wearable industry who would like to be interviewed? I have a keen interest in the intersection between design, computation, and fabrication as it relates to Carnival. If you would like to be interviewed, or know of a designer – that person can be a fashion designer, a designer of wearables as artistic, social, or cultural objects, or designers in the Carnival industry – please contact me. I would love to interview you.

Wire-benders, costume designers and makers, those in the computational and wearable industry, etc… Contact me.

You can email me at: vernelle.noel@gmail.com or thinkinginsomniac@gmail.com

Have a GREAT week all!!!

It is a very beautiful day today… soo sunny! I got in early this morning and started some work.. Today we were having a Celebration Picnic in honor of President Hockfield in Killian Court… My friends encouraged me to go (food).. and so I went… I did not realize/ remember how gorgeous it was outside until I exited the doors onto Killian…

Digitally Fabricated Curved Pavilion… here we come!!!

Today is going to be a long, long, physically demanding day… We will be assembling our curved pavilion… Today is sunny and nice day to be out…

Before heading to the Woodshop, I head down Mass Ave. to the Economy Hardware Store to pick up some items…

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

After I got back to the Woodshop, I met Mik, David, Ki, and Chris going to get lunch… I figured I would grab lunch too.. We went to the Mexican place that Tom and I went to yesterday.. This time, I had the above… Lotta pepper! (or spicy as Americans say)…

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

Mik had the same…

Our pile of parts…waiting for us… waiting for their moment of glory… (we hope)

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

Assembly is coming along nicely… We talk about our procedure and how we will assemble and erect this thing…

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

Labeling of our parts were key… it was assembling a life-sized puzzle…

I had to leave for a bit… My professor (Winston) and I had a meeting today.. He called and said he was in his office… so I rode across quickly to Stata to catch him…

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

Quick photo! Say cheese!

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

We were having some problems here… turns out we had two incorrect pieces..

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

Nice!

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

Pounding away!

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

We now have to bring these two parts together…

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

Bit by bit we get there…

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

Lovely!

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

We’ve got them together… well almost…

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

It’s now almost 8pm… and we still have a way to go…

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

We pound and try to get our connecting pieces snug and holding our ribs securely together…

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

Had some floor issues, so we were checking our parts to see what was possibly the problem..

Okay… we’re almost there… main structure up for the most part… Time for interiors…

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

My partner Linlin and I are assisted by Mik on installing our interiors…

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

Almost done… Did a little dance of happiness… Mik caught me unawares… we laughed about it!

Tada!! Our ruled surface interior installed…

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

If given the opportunity to do this again, I would use colored rods for the ruled surface… made of a sturdier material.. wood, or steel, or plastic of some sort.. It looks great! but the main guides could have been better done… learning lesson for sure! Next time…

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

Almost finished… at this time we are REALLY, REALLY tired… Just wanna go home, shower, eat, and sleep! I have class before we present this at 2pm… The exteriors team still need to install their exterior skin, and we need to place it on its foundations..

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

I really like it!

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

After cleaning up….

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

Voila!!

 architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, pavilion, curved pavilion, ruled surface, interior,   materializing design, SMArchS,

Bye Bye little one.. see you later…

Stay tuned for the finished project (Monday 14th May 2012)…

It’s all about MAKING!

It’s a Beautiful Day today!

My first class today, the Human Intelligence Enterprise with my favorite professor Patrick Winston. We always start the class with “What’s New?!” We watched a bit of Steve Job’s introduction of the IPhone and what a great presentation looks like and noted some key aspects that are important. We also looked at this video below… Have a look..

We discussed the Yahoo Chief Scott Thompson who allegedly faked a computer science degree on his CV. Winston advised us to NEVER lie on our resumes about our past. We also went through and rated the what felt like millions of papers over the semester.. After class was a busy one with meetings… and a Proposal Grant Writing Presentation.. It ended just as my class began.. so rush, rush, rush.. I had lunch in class..

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo   journal, photography, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication,   pavilion,

My Materializing Design class… These are all the pieces we cut and molded yesterday (Sunday).. above are photos of My’s and George’s foundations. Really nice!

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo   journal, photography, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication,   pavilion,

It’s assembly time.. we’re sorting our parts…

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo   journal, photography, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication,   pavilion,

I didn’t count (but I can get) the total number of parts for the Pavilion…

Structure for the floor beginning to be assembled…

Structural ribs and interior plates coming together…

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo   journal, photography, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication,   pavilion,

We are still trying to figure out the assembly.. since this will inform us about ways to do the same on site with the full scale Pavilion..

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo   journal, photography, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication,   pavilion,

Quite an exercise..

Yup!

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo   journal, photography, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication,   pavilion,

After class Mik wanted me to take some photos of her.. On our way down I see my friend Carl and his sweetie doggie (forgive me for not remembering her name).. but we had a ball in the stairway.. I should say, I had a ball! Bring the doggies on! Mwah!

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo   journal, photography, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication,   pavilion,

Mik took some photos of me too…

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo   journal, photography, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication,   pavilion,

At this point when the main structure was together, we lifted it up to put it on the foundations…

Yeah!!!

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo   journal, photography, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication,   pavilion,

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rhythm !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo   journal, photography, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication,   pavilion,

After we took all the photos we could.. (we started this at about 2pm and ended at 12:30am)… Needless to say it was a long day, but after it all we had to disassemble it… because classes would be held here when the sun comes up..

It was another great day and I hope you enjoyed this post! Stay tuned for documentation of the full scale model. We have 1 week until the final presentation (May 14th) with some editing and testing still to be thought out.. The final presentation is what you just saw (model), built!

Dance in the rain/ sun today!
