Sampler2 is collection of mini projects about digital materials based on the research questions proposed by ArtCenter Media Design Practices faculty Elise Co.
The four projects included: The Material Loop, Dioramas, Material and the Body, and Attention as a Material Force. You can find full documentation HERE. I worked on The Material Loop and Dioramas, and here is the work I did for both projects.
The Material Loop
The Material Loop is a web catalog for users to interact with, browse through, and experience digital materials. My Contribution:
The work is led by Elise and done in collaboration with Mavis,
Isabelle and Martin. Watch a video of Material Loop ⬇️ or you can
We also build pattern generators with p5.js and OpenGL. Below are the results of our experimentation.
Digital dioramas allow the users to curate, play, and interact with digital materials through simulations. My Contribution:
Diorama 3: Floating Islands is designed by me and executed by me, Nanyi and Elise. Watch a video of Floating Island or turn on your webcam and play with diorama
