A few students from a course I co-taught at ITP last semester got their emotive pedestrian crossing signal project written up on FastCo! Way proud.Read More
The Big Screens show was hurricane-free this year, and the night went swimmingly! Some shots of the programs & visuals I designed with Danne Woo.
The second ITP Big Screens Show in 2013 is coming up! I designed the email invite, and Danne and I spray-painted the old TV which we’ll use to preview the projects the night of the event.

This week, Tom Igoe asked me to create a template for his students so they could laser-cut a piece that fit tightly on the standard 12V stepper motor pictured below. After a bit of trial and error (see also: misreading the calipers ~8x) I was able to get a piece with a tight fit. I designed it into an arrow for Tom’s demonstration After handing it over to Tom, he said “this is exactly how I would’ve done it!” which is probably the best compliment I’ve received all year, short of hearing him laughing hysterically during my thesis presentation in May.

Red Burns’ memorial for the ITP family was held at NYU on November 2nd. With help from my colleague Antonius Wiriadjaja, I designed a wearable LED throwie kit for each of the guests to assemble & wear in honor of Red. We wanted the guests to be able to make something with their hands, as well as have the final result embody the “maker” spirit of ITP.
We were so pleased with the final result! People had fun putting the kits together, and seeing all the little red lights glowing in the auditorium was a very unifying experience. Photos from the event to come.Read More
As a resident research fellow of ITP, one of my duties is to assist students in classes that I also took during my time here. Last week I had the opportunity to view the wee beginnings of the work of the 2013 Big Screens class at IAC. Being in the space made me relive the night of our show in February– a night I still refer to as “one of the best in my life.” The sheer scale of the screens there make it pretty easy to be proud of your work, huge and glowing in front of dozens of wine-soaked eyes. But my partner Amelia and I put together something that will remain a part of our portfolios for quite a while. Take a look at the live footage from the show below!Read More
In an incredible turn of events, I have uploaded video of my thesis presentation a mere 4 months after it occurred. Magic.Read More
Summertime means my blog posts are scarce, but I had to take a minute to brag about my buddies Meow Meow Tweet getting all kindsa press. Their most recent feature in the NY Times is definitely something to brag / blog about.Read More
Meow Meow Tweet is your dream client, but I found them first. I’ve continued to collaborate with Tara & Jeff over these past few months, and it’s work I always look forward to. Cool updates view-able on their website, and soon coming to mine.
They’ve gotten a lot of great press lately, but just stumbled across this lovely process video and had to share. Awesome shot of some of the new labels in there as well!Read More
Good morning! It is 2pm and I have awoken from a 2-month blog coma.
I successfully defended my thesis #nightTweets at the end of May, and graduated a week later. Poor evidence for these events below. You can watch an archive of my presentation here if you like to maintain a healthy social distance, here if you prefer to get up close and personal (not recommended), or here if you want to choose another angle altogether. I will eventually cut a video of this, but come on, it’s summer.
Few more things: working on a confidential project with Microsoft Research in NY, and was offered a resident research position with ITP/NYU starting in September, which is a delight and an honor.Read More
