Life Support - Spring 2009 Critic: Janette Kim Partner: Stephanie Tung Project:
Beneficial Containment/Forced Cohabitation Can aggressive and social species actually help each other in close proximity? By containing species but allowing them to share a resource - in this case, continuously moving water - none are able to dominate while all contribute to the nourishment of the others. This project was exhibited in the cafe at Avery Hall in April 2009.

Imagining the Ultra-Real - Spring 2009 Critic: Sabri Farouki Partner: Christina Ciardullo
Project: Photo-realistic animation using 3DS Max A space ship practicing maneuvers on a slalom course does not expect them to shoot mud drops at him - let alone punch him! We utilized particle systems, and rigid and soft bodies in Max to create the effects. Approx. 90 seconds of animation.

Living Achitecture - Fall 2008
Critics: David Benajamin and Soo-in Yang Team: Lisa Ekle, Keith Greenwald Project: Kinetic-responsive party wall Our group explored the social oppportunities of an interactive party wall. Each of 5 touch-sensors casts a â€˜voteâ€™ to open or close the perforations in a wall. While determining the level privacy between two spaces, the wall system can also build and express consensus among users.
