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…

After my meeting I head back to my office.. I have class in a couple minutes…

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…

Laughter galore throughout the movie. Professor Ezra Glenn was one of my favorite characters! He was a whoot! Everyone was great!! Everyone!

Rain, Ruled Surfaces, and Teachers who Rock..

Today it’s rainy… I am not a big fan of being outside when it’s rainy… Where I come from (Caribbean), the sound of raindrops on your roof is like a lullaby….

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

No matter the weather.. an MIT-er (as I like to call myself) has to do what’s necessary!

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

I am spray painting the pieces that I cut last night.. had a meeting after for lunch.. then off the my New Textiles class..

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

This is the structure that I cut last night… I am going to do and experiment with string sculptures/ ruled surfaces..

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

In my new textiles class, my professor Leah Buechley (a great teacher – I’ll tell you why in a bit).. I am experimenting using different ways in which to harden, stiffen fabric so that it is almost self-supporting… here we are boiling corn starch, testing how much to put and other variables.. She made me laugh when she said “I’m just winging it here..”.. LMAO!

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

She’s enjoying this I can tell…

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

These are some reasons why Leah Buechley is a great teacher… For example… while conducting these experiments and tests, some mess was being made… I was concerned about the mess, apologizing at times and she said, “Oh, it’s no problem! I don’t care about the mess.. I just wanna see what happens.” That’s an admirable principle to have I thought… not only a a teacher, but as a researcher…

Continuing with my exploration of ruled surfaces ( surface that can be generated by the motion of a straight line) while my other stiffening experiments are resting…

Beautiful? Yes!

Stimulating? Yes!

My other hardening experiment.. using a clear, liquid plastic..

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

After leaving the Media Lab, I am now assembling the artifact I cut and spray painted earlier.. I planned to use this in a ruled surface experiment.. I’m not so sure anymore…

Ok.. after this.. been a long day.. time to head home!

On my way home I see fire trucks ahead…

Have you all seen this ad below? I definitely want to do something like this soon… Maybe during the summer months..
