Week 7 : Cross Crit Flow & Progress

Hello hello…

I’ve prepared and identified the project flow including the project’s system.


All of the following technical programs that I’ve included as methodologies are based on existing technologies and new researches;

Refined Keyword Adaptation Algorithm –




For emotive spaces interactive programs :

Facial recognition – http://emovu.com/e/video-analytics/emovu-player/

Interactive voice response system – http://www.hpl.hp.com/techreports/2003/HPL-2003-136.pdf

Motion Response System – http://www.nime.org/proceedings/2012/nime2012_254.pdf

Human – Computer Interaction – https://www.xsens.com/tags/human-machine-interaction/


The next step for the system part is to illustrate the application into the project. i’m also still figuring out the feedback loop and the time aspect of the project.


Attached is the sort of flow that im going for Tuesday.



One thought on “Week 7 : Cross Crit Flow & Progress

  1. The project flow looks good but its very important to have a clear introduction to how you define emotions and the system behind the working of your project. All these links are interesting but for them to be relevant to your project you need to draw them as a system to show you understand how they work and how they could be implemented in your project.
    If you look at the main page of the blog, I posted a link to the work of Richard Galpin that might be interesting for you. Also I found this website that talks about constructing the Sense of a Place that might be interesting for you as you develop your design of Times Square as the beating emotional heart of the city: https://sensingarchitecture.com/15189/deepen-sense-place-designs-create/#more-15189
    The diagram we discussed in tutorials of how emotions were gathered through social media across the city and then analysed through the various systems (perhaps choose 1 or at most 2 – or show us how different systems could determine the input for different facets of your space in times square) and then translated into colour, pattern and spatial effects in your palette or canvas of intervention on site and how that in turn constructs a new type of space. We should understand from your presentation a connection between the experience generated in Times Square and the overall emotions of the city. Why is it important that this is quantified and manifested within the city? How do you think your proposal will change the inhabitation of Times Square and our understanding of larger-scale emotional “trends” within a city? Remind yourself to be very specific about what is an emotion vs. its cause or effect, and assign specific colours to specific emotions without any overlap to avoid confusion – your project needs much more precision in your definition of its constituent elements so keep that in mind as your develop the work for the cross-crits – good luck!
