PROJECT 3

This project is about crowdsourcing. You will work in partners, and there are you will determine one question or task to administer to three different crowds – social media, mechanical turk, and in person. Once you have collected your results, you will use them to create a compelling experience online.

PART 1: CONCEPT (DUE 5/30)

Determine a question or task that will you will administer via social media, mechanical turk, and in person. For example, you might ask each person to:

  • Answer a question.
  • Give you a piece of information.
  • Give you a piece of media (image, sound, video, etc).
  • Compose a creative response to a prompt.
  • Complete a task and send the results or documentation.
  • Do a part of a task that is divided up over many people.
  • ?

Here are some considerations:

  • Clarity – How will you communicate the question/task to people? How will you get them to respond?
  • Scale – You will need to be able to collect at least 30 results through each of these three channels (at least 60 results total).
  • Output – You will need to be able to display your results in some type of composition online, so consider the form responses will take.
  • Privacy – If you require a very personal or identifiable response, let people know their response will be included in a project that may be publicly viewable online.
  • Decency – How are you involving other people in your work? Are they able to consent? Are you treating them with respect?

PART 2: COLLECT (DUE 6/1)


PART 3: BUILD (6/8)

IN-CLASS TESTING LINKS

In this project you will create a site-specific location-based artwork on UCLA campus. Create an experience that occurs over three different locations of your choosing. You will design and build a mobile application using p5.js with four different views - one for each of the three locations, and a fourth for the "in-between" state. You will be provided with a project template that allows you to specify the lat/lon of your three locations, automatically detecting which location you are in, and displaying the corresponding view.

If you would like to create an experience that does not follow this format, that is ok, but you must get approval in class on 5/9.

PART 1: CONCEPT (DUE 5/9)


PART 2: BUILD (DUE 5/23)


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?

Each of these four 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 four scores.

  • demonstrated understanding of the material
  • conceptually creativity
  • aesthetic quality
  • technical skill
