classification: autostereoscopic 3D LED display
location: Harajuku Tokyo Japan

team: Ellwood Chen & Austin Lightle

Autostereoscopic 3D LED display uses optical illusion to create stereoscopic visual effects. Most of the autostereoscopic 3D work pursues the effect that the display becomes an extension of the environment, the idea of a screen is erased, and they are visually physical. We want to create a new approach to work around the idea of phygitality...

It is a piece of steak. It has been taken apart following a digital template and then put back together. It is serviced on a Chinese porcelain plate with one clove of fried garlic and fresh rosemary. Oh, there is also a Pantone color card for color reference. It is textured with marble and cloth. It grows like a plant. It is a piece of steak...

location: Basel Switzerland
collaborator: Kaiho Yu
status: Unsuccessful

The proposal will convert the recycled material into multiple piles of synthetic material chunks. By collecting the abandoned building components from the area of Basel, the pavillon will illustrate how we can reinvent the material properties with a series of workflows. A pavillon constructed for play and leisure will be a medium to transmit the idea for a new circular strategy for local recyclable material...
/20210316/ _ work [the form of dark chambers]tag: [work] [automavision] [phygital] [digi]
classification: automavision experiment
A digital camera with visualized frustum can be the mold to reshape "the form that matters." This study is responding to an ongoing topic of understanding computer software and hardware limitation. The form can be optimized by how it will be viewed. This workflow is designed with the idea of misusing given tools. It becomes a guideline for an architecture seminar at Virginia Tech in the 2021 Fall semester, "Automavision I: The Depth of Frustums."...

classification: 2020 SCI-Arc graduate thesis
advisor: Peter Testa & Devyn Weiser
cultural agent: Marrikka Trotter

There is no composer or conductor, but a system outside of myself created this film presentation. The environment is very inscrutable, but digital cameras put me in a situation I could never imagine. So we could poetize with our cultural background and experiences but not rationalize presented views. The cameras become a quasi-evaluation tool to unravel the spatial schematic...

status: honorable mention

Architects ████████████ impose ideas on the design of a home. We are proposing an alternative, less political process that taps into the subconscious of the mind and bypasses traditional approaches of home design. █████ we can find how lifestyle influences one's subconscious and translates into architecture. We are not aiming to solve the homelessness problem, but instead to study this as a methodology of home design...
