Solar Cell + Attempt 2

Attempt two was much more successful! After knowing what exactly went wrong I kind of just came across the code I needed on the Arduino website. It was good for me to take a step back and look at what went wrong and then re-attempt the experiment.         This is the code […]

Sculpture In The Expanded Field by Rosalind Kraus

Rosalind Kraus’s essay titled Sculpture in the Expanded Field was written in 1979. The essay looks at different artists and how they are, in one way or another, part of the sculpture. The meaning of sculpture has changed over time – what is considered as sculpture today is very different to what was considered sculpture 100 […]

Installation Mood Board

  I’ve started up a mood board on pinterest with installation ideas – this involves aesthetics, sculpture, light work, sound work and other bits of inspiration. I felt that this would help me to get a better perspective on what it is want to achieve with this final project. As I am currently feeling a […]

Solar Cell + Arduino: Attempt 1

This is attempt 1 of my solar cell experiment. This is because everything went really wrong. But now that I have had a few hours to reflect on todays experiment I think I can now prepare to redo my solar experiment in a few days time so that it can be successful. I was following […]

Terraforming + Thoughts

Terraforming is relatively new term for me so I’m still getting my head around the concept. Meaning: Terraforming or terraformation (literally, “Earth-shaping”) of a planet, moon, or other body is the hypothetical process of deliberately modifying its atmosphere, temperature, surface topography or ecology to be similar to the environment of Earth to make it habitable by Earth-like life. I really like the idea of this hypothetical planetary engineering process because of how […]

Ideas and thoughts for the concept

Installation concept thoughts: This is a list of what I am currently thinking about that will help me to come up with a concept for my next piece of work: Planets, Solar, Solar Systems, energy, bringing the outdoors indoors, movement, systems, Shepard moons, communication, natural, anthropocene, aftermath, terraforming, what happens to our energy storage? what […]

Anthrobscene: My Thoughts + Responses

I spent the last week reading The Anthrobscene by Jussi Parikka. Here are some of my thoughts about the essay and some thoughts from what the essay has made me think about. I decided that to just read through the essay even if I understand it or not as something I will understand over time […]

Katie Paterson – Future Library (2014 – 2114)

The Future Library is a project designed by artist Katie Paterson. What I think is so interesting about Katies work is that she is able to condense such large concepts about space and time within her art to make them simple to see and understand. The forest is based in Nordmarka, a forest region north […]

Arduino + Solar

This video will be useful in a few days time when I try and do this myself. Although this is quite simple, for me it is more about trying to understand how a solar panel works and what you can do with it in max or Ableton.  

Plants + Landscape Design elements

I have been doing a bit of research into lighting in gardens/out door spaces. I thought it would be good for me to know a bit about nature/’natural’ environments though the way of design or landscape gardening. A few things that really stood out to me were the way in which there is a whole […]
