Reasearch and Experiments

Initially my area of interest was inspired by projected graffiti. Using a high powered lazer pointer, a projector, and a laptop, these people were able to "tag" a very large building.

Lazer Tag

There is some code that was written to go along with this that created the drip effect, which I believe could be manipulated. you can also create you own shapes and brushes to "tag" with.

Here is an interesting video where the projection actually interacts with the building's windows. Really cool, but the music makes me want to throw my computer. Listen to this one with the sound OFF.

My Experiments
Here is a video I have compiled of a few of my own experiments using a flashlight and a letter "A" I cut out of cardboard. For another experiment I made a makeshift lightbox and wrote on red film. I also came across some interesting finds while shinning the flashlight through an Aquafina bottle filled with red-colored water.

From sparkly unicorns, to glow-in-the-dark dolphins, these new fashion rubber bands
silly bandz have everyone talking. With the thousands of different varieties to choose from, children and

young adults have found it easy to grab onto this new fad. Plus, the price is right --the average price for a theme pack of 24 is around $4. Most of us think, “Oh! What a steal;

that’s such a great price.” When the reality of it is, the cost of 24 regular rubber bands is less than $1. Why pay more for shaped rubber bands, when you can have regular ones

for cheaper? Sure, they’re fun to play with and are a great conversation starter, but what is it about them that’s so fascinating, or for some, not fascinating? Students at Monte

Vista either love them or hate them. bakugan toys.
