PROJECT 3

This project is about crowds. What do you have to say to them? What can you learn from them? You will work in partners, and there are you will determine one topic or issue you want to address with a crowd. You will then determine one question or task to administer to a crowd – it could be via social media, mechanical turk, or some other online mechanism. Once you have collected your results, you will use them to create a compelling experience that meaningfully addresses the topic you chose.

PART 1: TOPIC (DUE 11/21)


PART 2: CONCEPT (DUE 11/28)


PART 3: COLLECT (DUE 11/30)


PART 4: BUILD (12/7)

Create a compelling display of your results online. Consider the results as your source material, you are welcome to add content, editorialize, or augment this material in any way you like. The form is completely up to you. Here are some ideas:

  • Create a web page using HTML and CSS.
  • Create an interactive experience using p5.js.
  • Send it out piece by piece as a TinyLetter.
  • Create an online identity that is the representation of all the collective voices.
  • ?

You will present this in class on 12/7.

PROJECT 2

Your goal with this project is to create a mobile artwork that changes your experience of a specific location.

Specific location – This could be on campus, in Los Angeles, or anywhere in the world. It must be a place corresponding to latitude and longitude coordinates. What is the significance of this place you have chosen?

Changes your experience – How does it change your experience of the place? Does it alter, augment, obscure, disorient, enhance, recontextualize...? To what end / why?

Mobile – Why is this a mobile experience? What does the use of mobile allow you to do? You must make use of a specific mobile functionality (GPS, accelerometor, touch interaction, camera, or something else approved by Lauren). I recommend focusing on one.

PART 1: CONCEPT (DUE 11/2)


PART 2: BUILD (DUE 11/16)


The final piece should have a clear concept that is communicated through a fully resolved and implemented design. It should look correct on a standard mobile device size. For the review, you will demonstrate your project in class so if it only works in one GPS location, create a way for us to view it in class. Post a link to your project on your index page. Your project can either be uploaded directly to cyberduck, or you can post a link to the project in the web editor.

Each of these three categories will be graded on a A(4) - F (0) scale. Outstanding or exceptional work will receive As, good work will receive Bs, sufficient work that does nothing more than meet requirements will receive Cs. The final grade will be an average of these three scores.

  • conceptually creativity
  • aesthetic quality
  • technical skill

PROJECT 1

In this project you will be designing and developing an online portfolio or website that represents you. You will research and determine a site concept, create a design based on this, and finally built it with HTML and CSS. How do you want others to see you and your work? What do you want them to notice first? What do you want them to takeaway?
