A prototype of my summer project created at FUSE Labs of Microsoft Research Labs is now live on the interwebz! Turn This Into That is a platform where users can challenge each other to remix content. The prototype is running in tumblr, using wufoo forms to accept content. The true design is currently in progress and will be built later this year.

I’m also collaborating with my ever-talented mentor Jenny Rodenhouse and the admirable Andrés Monroy-Hernandez to research how folks use the site.

For more information, see Andrés post on the FUSE Labs blog.

UPDATE: info also posted on Social Media Collective blog.

So Amelia and I recently decided we want to start an art/design team together, called H&H in honor of our last names. We have a few projects completed and even more in our queue. We don’t have a website, because right now it’s a place to dream & create all the crazy things we think up, and later it will become a showcase of work that (we hope) gets us hired.

SQIRLS was a fun thing Amelia thought up and I “art directed.” It’s something we wanted to make to officially announce to ourselves that we had started this duo. Here’s how it happened:

So she did. It now has almost 90,000 views after being featured on Gothamist, Vulture,  Buzzfeed, Jezebel, Huffington Post NY & Comedy, The Atlantic WIRE, TIME Newsfeed,  Tosh.0’s blog, PAPERMAG, AMNY, Glamour and more. GIRLS and Slate and The Guardian Guide tweeted it, which felt pretty cool.

My favorite part was gchatting Amelia “this is so weird” and “what the hell is going on” over and over again.

Nights has been getting some great reviews around the interwebz! Here we are in Gothamist, and in an awesome write-up from alterna-tv, who says we’re “an enjoyable entertainment option to fans of the surreal Twin Peaks, the dry wit of HBO’s Bored to Death and the quirky deadpan humor of Hal Hartley. Throw in a little ‘absurdist nihilism’ from the NBC sitcom Seinfeld, and Nights in UltraViolet has all the ingredients of a cult classic webseries that is not afraid to challenge its audience in addition to occasionally confusing and making it laugh as well. Ultimately that sounds a lot like life itself, regardless of whether it’s a meaningful one or not.”

I feel like a proud panda. Now, off to visit more Twin Peaks shot locations around Washington.
