This is a photo of a sunset I took outside of my house sometime in the past few years. Ever since I moved to Indiana 5 years ago, I have been able to view the sunset from home and discover all the different colors that are possible. Something as simple as a sunset contains so much variation, and I love being able to use photography to capture moments like these.
This is a map of how some* of my past and current interests/hobbies intersect and lead to one another, and some of the materials/supplies associated with them (that I ended up buying and using).
It's cool to think about how I became interested in subjects that I never would've liked before, and it happened because one thing lead to another.
* This is only one category of my interests and hobbies. :) I would call this the stationery section.
Audio is quiet! Turn up volume to hear.
The audio features:
00:00 Typing on phone
00:13 Typing on iPad
00:32 Using apple pencil on iPad
00:48 Typing on laptop keyboard
01:06 Writing with gel pen
01:19 Writing with ballpoint pen
01:32 Writing with mechanical pencil
Background noise is due to being in a public study space in my dorm.
My idea for the audio is to record the sounds of writing in everyday life. This would include various sounds of pens/pencils on paper as well as typing on various devices (the sounds of keyboard vs haptic feedback on mobile devices).
My group drew different aspects of Purdue life and Colombian culture.
I made a flowchart of my daily routine from when I wake up to when I start class.

PROCESSING PROJECT: Desert Showdown
Picture of us working on the project:
I worked with Sirley on this project. We had the idea of creating a program that could draw on Processing while you move the joystick, but it was difficult to code.
The end result of the project was being able to move the joystick to change colors on the screen and to turn a motor.
Final project Ideas
- Depict the memories that you have about living here (wherever you’re at) and combine everyone’s. Media to be determined.
- Create a 3D landscape by combining different objects and places related to Purdue/Indiana and Medellin. It would be displayed on a digital screen that you can navigate.
- Create scenes related to both cultures/places by using colored lighting and audio in a physical space and images on a digital screen to create an emotional effect related to the scene.
The images would be displayed on the wall. Speakers will play sounds related to the scene, and the lights will be different colors to set the mood of the scene.
For the final project, I worked with Maria Clara, Arney, and Toyin to create a large installation that would show many snippets of our moments at Purdue. We worked together to build the physical structure and mount it onto the wall so that the projection can be utilized for our installation.
