Collaboration with Melanie Kim.

We used IFTTT to create an automated chain of text messages. The trigger to receive the next text message with the next set of directions is a tag on instagram that is specified in the previous text message. We directed the participants to take pictures of what they felt the text messages described,

Sleep When You’re Dead

This project was a group collaboration: Hannah Gaskill, Nicholas Sardo, Angelina Namkung,  Maddy Gryger, and Andrea Gershuny.  The concept of this project was to focus on the stress culture that was prevalent at CMU, and the inherent pride that ensues due to lack of sleep.  Students pride themselves on whoever has the least amount of sleep.  This led us to thinking about a method in which to allow stressed students more sleep, creating three beds in the shape of coffins and installing them around campus, providing students with a comfortable area in which to get a decent amount of sleep.

Systems Part II – Angelina Namkung ( 2014)

Assignment,Systems Thinking — Tags: , , — Angelina Namkung @ 9:20 pm

Part II of the Systems Procedure was to choose an everyday procedure and turn it around, pushing it further in the opposite direction.  I decided to switch to using my left hand instead of my dominant right hand to go through a day.  This forced me to really focus on menial tasks which usually don’t take much thought such as dressing and eating.  Using my left hand, generally increased the effort for each and every task throughout the day.
