Infinity I installation design process

In order to test out colored light and reflections, Annelise, Birgitte (research fellows at Oslo National Academy of the Arts) and myself created a model for an installation. We experimented first with colored mirrors and reflections. To do so, we placed colored acetates (photography filters) on top of circular mirrors. We used spotlights to direct…

Shadowplay: interactive installation process

I’ve found out that when I can’t quite figure out how something works, I’m intrigued and become curious. This curiosity then leads to play, and for me, to be immersed in an activity, an object or a space. I read about an art piece in the 70’s called Going Around the Corner Piece by Bruce…

Co-design workshop

I ran a workshop centered on design process as part of my Master’s. I got my class to help me out and together, we designed a situation, product or service. In order to do so, in teams, we would pick one word from three categories in the board, blindfolded. Then, we sketched and brainstormed ideas according to…

Computer vision workshop

It was run by Kyle McDonald and Golan Levin. Although we got stuff we could test and tinker with, like FaceTracker, for instance, it was more of a Master Class…

I was lucky enough to be in the computer vision workshop held…
