Prototype demo, reflections/revisions

I am having some trouble with inspiration from my original idea.  I originally thought that I would be motivated and excited to share the details and peace that I find in the sounds of the space.  I think the sound walk we did as a class was effective in heightening our awareness and becoming part…

Iterations I realized last week that the water ball would add an unnecessary barrier between the viewer and the air traffic control sounds. It would shift attention away from the sounds to the ball itself, and imply that the ball – and the person inside – are the sources of those sounds. I’d prefer that the…

With the sign that said “WALK ON ME,” the majority of people avoided walking on it. Some…

It was an interesting experience to be part of Teardown without ever having been involved with Booth. I didn’t have any friends available at that time, so getting the plywood back to DH…
