Tactical Metrics Update . . .

With Water Canary in full swing, there’s been not nearly enough time to get tacticalmetrics.net off the ground.  So for now, please be content to watch my thesis presentation here. Exciting stuff to follow as soon as I report to Browning and figure out how this exciting project is going to take shape.  Stay tuned […]

Canary in the Lab

Our first visit to Dr. Philip Tierno’s Microbiology Lab at the NYU Medical Center!

The story of my ITP thesis so far . . .

My work at ITP has explored ways that inexpensive hardware might be applied to help us promote social change, and last year the questions I was asking led me to an important insight: that the water crisis, was an information crisis.  Although the present state of affairs will require billions of dollar invested in infrastructure […]

We’ve hit the boss level. Hally’s jumping around the stage like a hopped up game-show host, spitting out robotic vocals into a microphone. On the screen behind him, CHiKA’s visuals are spinning and pulsing a ride through letters spelling out his name. He’s wearing mirrored sunglasses and a red leather jacket, and his hair slicked […]

Measuring Flow . . . My ITP Thesis

1) Thesis Statement In the midst of current global water crisis, water scarcity remains one of the most devastating problems faced by populations in semi-arid regions throughout both the developed and the developing world.

Where we all lose interest in 1:1 interactions that immediately reveal their programming, […]

Site Specific: Proposal to Augment “Lobby For the Time Being”

Perhaps an interactive supplement to using the projectors for lighting. Lobby: 1553, from M.L. laubia, lobia “covered walk in a monastery,” from a Gmc. source (cf. O.H.G. louba “hall, roof;” see lodge (n.)). Meaning “large entrance hall in a public building” is from 1640. Political sense of “those who seek to influence legislation” is attested […]

Site Specific: Spiral Jetty

3 Questions What was Smithson’s audience? It’s fairly clear historically, geologically and geographically why he was interested in the Great Salt Lake, but it’s unclear to what degree he intended for his work to engage those who live in the area. On one level the work accelerates/intervenes in a natural process that a human being […]

Site Specific: The Songlines/We Have Never Been Modern

Questions: Latour sets up the dual task of modernity with several polarities (one side, domination, translation hybridization, mediation and proliferation are set against emancipation, purification, and separation) – identifying the crisis in the proliferation of monsters that fail to be acknowledged. Can we open up what he might be suggesting to counter this trend on […]
