Reverie

06Mar12

This week we studied the Da Vinci themes of optics and light. We looked at several artists who work with light, such as Dan Flavin and James Turrell. We were invited to go to PS.1 in Long Island City to see James Turrell’s long-term installation: The Meeting. Our assignment was to make a pencil and […]

For my final project in Video Sculpture class, I made a miniature 3D display top for the iPhone, using the illusionary technique of the Pepper’s Ghost Effect. I wanted to recreate the feeling as a kid when you catch fireflies in a jar, or bugs in a box, and you wish you could carry those […]

I demoed Commons at the New York Tech Meetup (NYTM) in November at the 92ndY.  NYTM is a monthly gathering of the NY Tech community, mostly comprised of folks from the startup scene, including developers, investors, entrepreneurs, hackers, founders, etc.  The theme for this month’s meetup featured innovative ideas originating at NY universities. The 700 […]

Pandora

We designed a light sculpture, called Pandora, inspired by the Italian Futurist and Cubist art movements. The Futurists were obsessed with speed, technology, machines, cities, and industrialization, and our light sculpture echoes these themes: rapidly changing flares and shadows, pieces broken up and reassembled, with a lot of geometric movement. My partner, Thitiphong Luangaroonlerd, and […]

These are […]

Currently, I am leading the user experience and user interface design team for a cooperative multiplayer game on the iPhone, using human-computer interaction (HCI) techniques and methods to determine […]

A week in my life. My thoughts and observations. New York City, January 2011. NYC State of Mind from Suzanne Kirkpatrick on Vimeo.

As a bit of comic relief during finals week at ITP, my teammate, Avery Max, and I decided to do an animation and lyrics re-interpretation of our favorite karoke fail on YouTube. The original song and music video “Touch My Body” by Mariah Carey is one of my favorites, and we couldn’t resist the opportunity […]

I wanted to create a design in Processing using images that look like old style photos from a photo booth, and combine these images with recorded video and live video capture. I’m interested in the notion of the passage of time and images, for example when you see a photo or a recorded video, you […]
