Spark Event Day


Spark event,

During class time, we had the chance to visit Spark for an Ideation session and tour of the building with Amelia.


We were given the chance to take part in an ideation session on the spot to propose a product that Spark could produce in the future.

We proposed an IOT device assuming the world reached the ability that most of the world appliance and objects are connected.

If everything is connected then there is data, if there is data there is predictability. If we have so much data that is all around us waiting to be caught and analysed there will be patterns to be decerned again going back to predictability.

The example we used was between the fridge and the oven/stove top all being controlled by a phone to determine which objects should connect on a data level.

It will track the contents of the fridge, the cooking time of the food in the oven and on the stove.

The beauty of the thing we came up with is that it isn’t limited to a fridge and cooking options but how much water we use in the shower and we represent in milk bottles to show how much we are using which is an important visualisation when it comes to drought countries or what does your sleeping position say about when you are about to wake up.

It is personalised, not two people cook the same and not two people sleep the same way or use the shower the same way. There ware data here that is waiting to be mined and examined.

Personally I would extend this project using AI particularly IBM Watson because I know more about it, and the fact that we can use AI specifically for pattern recognition.

These data will be relevant to us on an individual level.



Starting again

initially my object for the interrogation is a photo with my friend on
my birthday party before she left, I did the process for it and talked about it with Clint. But she is not a big fan of videos and photos and didnt want her face as my art work.

Its not much of a problem, even if i dont have the original image to be shown i have linked above the final outcomes of the process and it turned out well. It doesnt show her face so its okay, i twisted and interrogated the image until it is almost unrecognizable.

So it is not a total loss since i can still apply the process to a new image

this is a ticket of the last movie we saw so it is just as significant to me.

it is strange, i never placed memories into images and only in moments and this was pretty important moment in my life

Life is a progress bar

transferring all principle shots on to pc then to a hard drive for back up. because i learn from mistakes

for the shooting of the film has been pretty crazy. we have finished all the shooting for the five minute film we have lovingly called, Destinatio: Mars. It was a team effort coming up with the idea but i was the Head writer for the team and also the director of the film.

the writing process i really found really fun and it is the first time i have written a script for anything. Also the first time directing. It is really fun playing with characters names back story. But one of the hardest thing is dealing with the creative input of the writer and being based on facts.  The balance of making it seem it could happen is very hard to combine. You either tell a boring story that is predictable or go overboard with the future and do time travel or something.

I wrote the script after the first weekend of the semester and the following studio lecture we were told to make it more comedic and i was panicking because i wrote the with a serious undertone. But my team was very supporting and decided to keep the script with the team editing to make it more relatable and more jokes.

Shout out to my team member and Director of photography Kavita for being so great. I yell angles and she gets it thanks!
