“When ships to sail the void between the stars have been built, there will step forth men to sail these ships.”

― Johannes Kepler

Satellites are funny things. It’s easy to forget how rapidly they circle the earth: it takes us a day to make a full rotation, but some satellites can complete an orbit in an hour and a half. At those speeds, reality is warped, and time bends.

What’s even stranger is that one of these satellites, the International Space Station, has people in it.

“Ships to Sail the Void” plots the trajectory of the Space Station with a laser that it shines onto nearby surfaces. When it is activated, it takes a minute to show the path that the Space station will take over the next one hundred minutes.

Every time that it runs, it pulls fresh data from the satellite database at n2yo.

It brings the strange, distant concept that is space travel down from the void, into your room.

“Sensation.” by Amy Friedman (2014)

We constantly have stresses in our life that overwhelm us from time to time. We dont realize the impact our stressful lifestyle can have on our bodies and overall well being. Stress can induce heart problems, skin conditions, increased heart rate, depression, anxiety and more. People need to take moments to just breathe and learn how to relax for a few moments in times of pressure to maintain healthy living.

Sensation. measures your pulse and allows you to understand your heart palputations visually through a wearable lighting system. If your heart is beating over the healthy limit of beats per minute, embedded motors rotate to create a massage to sooth your stress and focus upon another task to lower your heart rate. Users of Sensation. can also manipulate the patterns of the massage by moving your finger over a position sensor. The device uses an Arduino, softpot Position sensor, 4 cellphone motors, string LEDs, and a pulse sensor.

Embedded and Wearable: “Cyclic” by Connor Brem (2014)

It’s been said that a quiet bike is a well-maintained bike. That may be true, but musical bikes are much more fun.

“Cyclic” takes a normal, functional bike, and extends it into a string instrument.

It requires little effort to play. Rather, the cyclist produces music passively with “Cyclic”. As they pedal, they strum the strings.

Cycling is a very rhythmic activity. “Cyclic” takes these rhythms, and turns them into melodies.

Immersive Experience: “Tree, Interrupted” by Yeliz Karadayi, Amy Friedman, and Dan Russo

Tree, Interrupted from Yeliz Karadayi on Vimeo.

 

This tree invites people closer with a natural serenity and ambience, but explores a unique condition of human interaction.   At close proximity, the curious nature of the tree invites tactility and intervention.  However, upon intervention, the ambience becomes disrupted with loud connotations.

This project explores human intervention in a natural landscape and places it in a clear audible expression.  Today’s world is dense with invasive interactions, creating a damaging atmosphere to natural and social ecologies.  This project provides a reflection about the nature of sensory overload, specifically as it relates to human curiosity.
