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!

One a Day (OAD)!

I took the photo during one of my classes. I LOVE pens and am very particular about them. I can’t remember that this pen was special in any way, but, it was shiny and the composition of it laying on the paper looked beautiful through my camera lens.

Wii

On Friday & Saturday we are expecting a blizzard. An email was sent out by MIT that night notifying us that school would be closed tomorrow (Friday). Of course I was happy! This led to a great night of hanging out with friends, playing Wii, impromptu karoake, and plans for the impending snow. From Michael Jackson, to bowling, to cricket, to boxing, what a great night! I chose this photo because it reminds me of surprise days-off!

Have a great week!

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!

London, I have arrived!

It’s 7:30am (London time), and I have arrived!! The thought of meeting my cousin gives me the biggest and most uncontrollable grin ever! I’m soo excited! I haven’t seen her since May 2007 when she came to Washington, DC for my graduation… We have both been dwelling in different time zones since then..

Walking through Heathrow going to baggage claims, then exit! (forgive the lack of photos documenting my cousin and I meeting).. Photos were the last thing on my mind! it took FOREVER at immigration. I have no clue what London intends to do for the Olympics.. it was terrible! I think a few flights, maybe 3 or 4 came in simultaneously… it took more than an hour to clear there…

After we meet, hug, laugh, express happiness, excitement, and sheer disbelief that I am there and we are there together, we sort ourselves and head for the train… and so do many other travelers, all with their suitcases in tow.

When I exit the train station at our stop, I had to capture it.. take it all in! The sights, the sounds, the smells…. ahhhh. I feel so happy! it reminds me of that feeling I had in Europe.. Every time I disembarked at another city, my little heart would flutter with happiness… I already love it here! Why? Professor Winston always says, whenever you like something, try to articulate why you like it… The air was crisp and fresh, I felt free, I was with my wonderful cousin, I was traveling, which I really love, I knew I was going to have an adventure in store for me, and I knew I would see new faces, and have another experience and story to tell…

After we get home I had no plans for rest. I unpacked stuff, showered, ate, and we headed back out. This would not be a trip of rest but instead one of pace, like my cousin says.. PACE!

We came off the bus here so that I could walk around and get up close and personal with St. Paul’s Cathedral.. designed by Christopher Wren

I got a glimpse of the Tate on our walk and had to get closer… See the tower behind there? You can’t miss it… This organization of steps and ramps in this urban public space is also a beauty…

Bakery along the way that my cousin frequents.. I had a raisin thing.. the pastry was soft, flaky, warm, delicious… Oh how I love food! it is such a treat for the eyes and the palate… Mmm.. The bakery was quite warm and inviting too… great service!

I can’t remember what here was called, but I love arcades and this was a successful one… A well-lit “place” and “path.” There was a pub at the corner and I realized that at most (if not all) of the pubs I passed by people were standing having their drinks…

Crossing the Thames with Buckingham Palace on the right.. Reminds me of crossing the Charles River… 😉

The temperature continued to drop during the day and a little after this point I needed to close my eyes a bit.. I was going on no sleep for approx. 38 hours… I rest my head on my cousin’s shoulder and closed my eyes for a bit.. We were going to have dinner at a place she likes.. Well we were going to pass through the palace first, but it was closed off in preparation for the Jubilee celebrations..

“Still Water” (horse head) sculpture by Nic Fiddian Green.

Nic was born in Hampshire in 1963. He graduated from Wimbledon School of Art, London with a BA in Sculpture, and went on th attain his MA at St. Martins School of Art, where he also took a Diploma in Advanced Lost Wax Casting.

He is best known as an equestrian sculptor, working primarily in bronze and in beaten lead. He held his first exhibition in 1986, and has sine been in demand by galleries and collectors alike: his work is now shown regularly in London, New York and Australia. In addition he is well-known for carrying ot major site-specific commissions; tow recent monumental pieces have been Turning House for Glyndebourne Opera House in Sussex, and Horses Head in the Wind, for Treasury Holdings in Barrow Street, Dublin.

Like many who have spent a life with horses and know them intimately, Nic took them for granted during his early life; they were simply there. However, his view was changed in 1983 when he first saw the Elgin marbles at the British Museum. He began to see the horse as a spiritual entity, not just a living thing with a beauty and energy particular to itself but a universal vessel for a whole breadth of emotions. A Fiddian Green horse is not an animal sculpture in any traditional sense. It goes beyond the portrait to become a study in energy and quietude, exuberance or wistfulness. (taken from here…)

We stumbled upon some sort of street party along the way.. We joined, sampled wine, enjoyed songs by Tina “Tea” Turner, and had a ball!!

We then meet another friend and have dinner here at Busaba Eathai… My cousin loves here so she brought me here.. and the food was really good! I must say in London I ate all of my food every time! I think it’s because of the sizes of their portions… I never had leftovers, which is common whenever I eat out..

Our friend Giz had these wings.. They were the smallest things I have ever seen!! Pigeon wings they looked like, BUT, they were succulent, well seasoned, nicely fried, and delicious….

After dinner we went to a bakery and got dessert.. I had red velvet cake – one of my favorites.. but I just love cake on the whole… We went back to the street party, then went home… I could not wait to go to sleep.. tomorrow would be another wonderful day!

Love ya London!

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)…

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…

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..

The natural light in this building is A+. Public spaces, circulation spaces and offices get a wealth of natural light… Most users of Stata really like how the space and the building works…

As I get to the lobby of my building I see my friend NJ. He is heading back to Korea for a bit, but will be back. He is a very nice and helpful person.. Looking forward to hanging with him when he returns…

After my class I meet my main man Tom.. yet another brother from another mother.. Tom is probably 6′-6″.. I am not exactly sure.. but he is TALL! He is one of my best friends here at MIT because he has my back, as I have his…He’s just great to talk and laugh with… he has the coolest tattoos too… We are walking to get lunch along Mass Ave… In this photo I am looking back toward MIT…

We have lunch at a new Mexican place Tom’s friend recommends… We both have burritos..

TOM!!!!!! Love ya man!

So after lunch I go to the library to do some intense work on papers and finals… I focus better in the library… At 5:30 pm, DUSP (Dept of Urban Studies) would be showing a movie they made.. I am here early and can’t wait to see it.. A lot of my friends are in it and were involved in making it.. Some of the people I have come to know and love in the DUSP class 2012 are some of the best people I have met here at MIT… They are “human”, funny, conscious, and aware of the things that matter (to me at least).

People slowly coming in after classes, presentations, etc for the movie premiere..

My friend and fellow “How to Make” buddy, Albert. Another awesome person… Many persons think I am in DUSP.. LOL.. Albert and others sometimes have to break the news that I am not .. LOL.. I am a DUSPer in my heart though…

It’s a rainy day today… but the temperature should be alright my weather channel app tells me.. Today I have lunch plans with my friend Ang… another DUSPer… I also have a lot to do as it’s all about final projects and assignments now.. Yikes!

After getting to school I got started on my work, then left to meet Ang. We would be having lunch at MIT Sloan (School of Management) today.. I have never had lunch there as I usually bring my lunch. I am looking forward to it!

She’s here so I head in to the building…

The lunch options in Sloan are unbelieveable! You guys know I love food.. the food is really good here! So many options! Ang and I got different things to eat and shared it all… This is an Italian panini I think.. The potato chips I could have done without.. They weren’t too good..

MIT Sloan School of Management, architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, string sculpture, ruled surfaces

Ang had a kinda of stir-fried, medley of color, deliciousness and everything! Because that’s how she rolls.. LOL.. The mango salsa was really good… everything was! By the time we talked and laughed.. we had leftovers and dessert for later..

MIT Sloan School of Management, architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, string sculpture, ruled surfaces

I have found in life that sometimes you (or me) meet someone who you know, but you know you don’t really know them.. then there are others I don’t know but I feel like I have known forever. Ang is the latter, I feel like I have known her forever! We had a good laugh about animals and our surprising shared love of something strange. I cannot remember how the discussion got there, but turns out we have a shared loved of Super Grover.. and a desire to be him if we were super-heroes! LMAO!!! How strange?!!! I think we like that he was just a normal person, trying to help where he could.. I must say though he irritated me at times.. but I loved him. My very first doggie was named Grover.

MIT Sloan School of Management, architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, digital fabrication, string sculpture, ruled surfaces

We also laugh about my plan and desire (not yet realized) to fight a monkey… Before moving to India in 2008, that was my plan… but it never worked out.. Why do I want to fight a monkey? Because I think they’re cute, and though I may get the worst beating of my life, I think a monkey is the only animal that would have as much fun as I would in this fight.. Strange but true… One of them entered my apartment in Ahmedabad… went into the pantry and stole some nuts and channa (garbanzo beans).. but I wasn’t at home to plan for that duel.. LOL… He missed out! LOL..

After our lunch we head back to Main Campus… Ang is working on her thesis, me on several final projects simultaneously…

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..

After those shots we took the lights off and I moved around with a lamp to capture some awesome shadows…

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!
