Transposable is a prototype of our modular projector. This is our attempt to create a personal projector for multiple media outlets. We are driven by the idea of reflecting and refracting light under various conditions. Through researching light refraction, reflective and reflexive materials we explored simple mechanics and were able to reproduce a light sourced image. With our do-it-yourself style of testing we have created the first prototype for an easy to construct flexibly designed projector.
It is only rarely that a psychoanalyst feels impelled to in- vestigate the subject of aesthetics even when aesthetics is understood to mean not merely the theory of beauty, but the theory of the qualities of feeling. The subject of the “uncanny” is a province of this kind.

Creating a series of simple cubes to reflect upon relationships requires understanding how subjectivity influences interaction. Furthermore for the individual to understand themselves within this context, creating a representation becomes a requirement. Each cube was meant to measure and calibrate its color to an individual. Once those cubes touched each other they would reflect within themselves the facet being shared with the other.
I gave my camera to someone else working on a Maker Faire project and I was at the booth all day on Sunday, but here are the pictures of the BioBus as requested:
Our first project:
This is very much delayed, considering we all have already started to get to know each other. So rather than the traditional post about me, I guess I will just post about why I signed up for pComp and why I am glad I did (although I generally feel like my level of experience and exposure is well behind our section): Continue reading
This idea was inspired by shadows and playful stories. This first iteration works in two parts.
