Today started with my fruit smoothie. Flax seeds, chia seeds, bananas, apples, lychee, kiwi, and white grape juice. I think that was it.

Bulleted and ready to drink. Today is my first day putting flax seeds and chia seeds in my smoothie. It added a gelatin texture to the mix.

I had a meeting first thing this morning for a new research project that I will be working on. Good meeting.

My first item will be reading these two papers.

I took a photo of this staircase because I was running up and down it way too much today. Administrative matters took up too much of my time today, but that’s Mondays for ya. Hopefully I actually get work done tomorrow.

My desk. I organized my desk, my to-do list, and my mind so that I can hit the ground running tomorrow. Side note, Bing, has some of the most beautiful desktops.

I collected books I reserved from the library too. This is not even 10% of the stuff I have to read.

After preparing for tomorrow, I left. It was an absolutely beautiful day today. Just beautiful! Look at those trees! Look at the sky!

Green trees, blue skies, white clouds, red buildings. Beautiful!

I bought notebooks. I will use these to write my jottings and thoughts from and for my readings, projects, and papers that I have to work on this summer.

When I got home I opened one of my jars of kaya butter.

Look at that beauty.. Will you marry me? So good.. sooo good..

Hello All!

I have been scarce, but only because I have been busy. And I think I am learning… I think I am understanding stuff and I am encouraged and happy about this. I will post for you something I did using the Kinect. Possible uses and applications of the Kinect fascinate me so I wanted to use it. I began by reading and rewriting code for understanding from the book – Making Things See. I started with their exercise on drawing an imaginary cube in space, which would increase in opacity based on increasing the point clouds – as I touch the box.

You can see my video and you can get the code here:

I then played some more with the code. Here’s a video of my final work. There are things I still need to fix and make modular, but, bit by bit. This was done weeks ago. I am doing data visualization now and will show you all some stuff soon.

When I did this it was carnival back home (Feb 16 & 17th). While everyone was in the sun having fun, I had to pretend I was there. Here I am manipulating the vertices of my shape while I move to Machel Montano’s – Like Ah Boss.

truth and its relevance

 Truth – what is said – is literal.

Design worlds are not solely literal but metaphorical, created, based on our perception, our experiences and more.

For non-verbal (what is said) versions of expression, truth is irrelevant (Goodman).

Have a great day!
