The end of the semester as usual was a flurry of activity as usual, and one project which I didn’t get to cover as much as a I wanted to was my final for Understanding Networks and for Sensitive Buildings…a class I wasn’t enrolled in. The project was actually a collaboration between Sae Huhand myself for Understanding Networks, but crossed over into the Sae’s Sensitive Building class.
Sensitive Buildings is a class which focuses on creating smart habitats for city dwellers specifically those located in the apartments of 240 Central Park South New York. I teamed up with Sae, and the rest of his team in Sensitive Buildings( Annelie Berner, Manuela Donoso, and Engin Ayaz) to explore how we could make an installation in the building that would highlight the systems at work within the building. Our final project, called Flux 240 is an ambient kinetic sculpture that visualizes the changes in heat for the apartment building.
