Project Report

This is a chart, reflecting upon the developments and changes that my project has gone through during this unit. (7.Jan.08-18.Mar.08).

I had three goals in Unit2. Firstly, the goal was a simpler project. I have definitely tried hard to make simple the project in this unit. So my project became much easier to read and understand that.

Secondly, I wanted to develop all my essays, and learn academic writing skill more. For the goal, I booked English tutorial in every week. In conclusion, my previous essays were clearly revised by me for this unit.

Final goal is an implementation of the project. My ideal project was too complicated for me. The simplified new project was much easier to implement than previous work. Now, I created very simple interaction between a spectator and a computer. (just recognize human, and then show image or play movie clip) There are still remains many problems, but I will be able to build the system robustly for Easter break. In next Unit, I will concentrate the outputs (response images of movie clips) and a design of an installation.

I am more concentrating “beautiful”, “artistic”, “sensitive”, and “sentimental” outputs of the interaction. I hope that I can make a creative something.   

All information about the revised project including technical and artistic results is in Project I – SeeSaw page, and others.

This blog is only made for unit2 and assessment.

Title

 

SEE, SAW, SHOUT, SMILE

 

SeeSaw

 

A situation that keep changing, especially two opposite things (MED)

 

This title means an interaction between human and computer.

 

 

Aim

 

How communication doesn’t work

 

Interaction (communication) between human and computer

 

The aim was slightly changed. I made this project much simpler.

 

So I concentrate the interaction.

 

 

Objectives

 

Several ambitious things. Using AI technology. 4 monitors/computers

 

Using face recognition, simpler interaction, 1 monitor/computer

 

 

Using of the technology is still challengeable, but it can be possible before final show.

 

 

Rationale

 

A complicated communication theory about ‘break down communication’ isolated person, problems in modern society.etc. Too many rationales.

 

 

In this project, the communication means interaction between human and computer. So spectator can feel difficulties and problems of communication with others through the interaction with machine

 

 

Much simpler theory, but still remains an important rationale about communication

 

 

Outcomes

 

Essay, installation, film, and feedback

 

Almost same. The result will be an installation.

 

 

If exhibition space is limited, the work can be presented as movie clip.

 

 

Media

 

Many Hardware/Software

 

Almost same

 

 

 

 

Exhibition

 

Using Sensor, 4 PC and monitor

 

Only using 1 PC

 

I determined to create the work only by my customized programming.

 

 

Methodologies

 

Interval effect between 4 monitors, virtual human, network connection

 

Only 1 monitor, not virtual human and network connection.

 

This project only provides linear interaction between spectator and computer. I am interested in artistic, lively personality of the computer (output of response)

 

 

Risk assessment

 

Input image analysis, combination of computer and sensor…

 

 

Image analysis and appropriate responses can be critical risk of this work

 

 

Response selecting relies on created model by me. Very challengeable part

 

Timetable

 

Almost completed project in Unit2

 

 

Little bit late, but can do that for Easter break

 

Almost similar process
