Playing with the three basic shapes – initial learning to manipulate and parameterize them
One of my few sketches in openFrameworks – experimenting with flocking and particle systems
This is inspired by the Indian festival of colors ‘Holi’ – it’s a series of mini web-interactions.
An initial prototype for a random face generator from an exhaustive list of facial components.
This was a functional prototype for a two-player game (a digital version of the traditional tug-of-war). The ball shrinks when clashed with the purple obstacles, but can be made visible by shouting out loud.
A random generator for the 7 old and new wonders, with image, font, sound, and narration. There are patterns built arond the randomness.
Generating rhyming words in a bawdy context for humor. Built with RiTa.rhymes library.
Re-painted each pixel segment of my profile photo with my name as text along the same colors. Depth can be toggled with direction keys.
Counts and eliminates ‘likes’ while speaking. Inspired by American teens.
A crazy face built with Futura font, inspired by the letterforms, from my initials MAD (Mario Arnold Dcunha). The face randomly blinks.
Random Headline generator with Markov-based grammar builder RiTa along with contextual GIF images.
Text generator with Markov-based grammar building, along with contextual sound effects. Silhouette intensity is generated using the background sound.
Interactive scattering of text version-2 with direction, placement, and letter scrambling.
Interactive scattering of text with direction, position, and color. It was used for the Junior Year Final Exhibition.
My collection of wisdom and inspirational quotes.
Interactive animation of bringing type-to-life with semantic meaning.
While it was a challenge to start with prototypes, to help distill the mind map and the many layers of the design statement, making these tiny but many prototypes helped gain clarity for next steps. On hindsight, I realized that the challenge in making was essential because the multi-layered design statement and goals itself and…
This was my final presentation to my peers and faculty at the end of the Thesis first semester. The coherent idea, its build and development are reserved for Thesis semester 2. My next semester will only be largely focussed on Thesis as I don’t have additional classes unlike the Thesis 1 semester. Halfway Milestone…
