Smart Art Blog: 2011 Recap
2011 was another adventurous year. Besides for my traveling to southeast asia again, I have had my work shown in a few places. I am writing this in part to have a post consolidating the highlights of this blogs work in the past year, as well as to finally give some link backs to the people kind enough share this blog. I have been waiting to post this, as well as some other posts, so to keep with the logical flow of the blog, I am back-posting this a few weeks. It is interesting to reflect on the past year, even further into the new year.
A while back I worked on an animation for PHD candidate Priscila Sato (now Dr. Sato). Her research was published in Circulation Research and one of the images I created for her was selected for the cover. Checkout the journal HERE .
My work Sculptural Motion was shown in downtown Chicago in a National BFA competition and published in a Lulu book available for purchase HERE.
The website Ponoko had also featured my work on their blog, www.blog.ponoko.com and similar to this wrap-up, they had a Best of the blog series. I was lucky enough they featured my work on their best of the blog Art. Please checkout their blog and the unique services they have HERE .
For my more recent research I have been working with human movement visualization. The University of Michigan had a Cyber Infrastructure conference in which I presented a poster of some of my early research. The work I did, with the help of Janani Viswanathan and with guidance from Dr. Melissa Gross won the People Choice Award at the conference. I have gained many connections through ORCI and have been actively working on ways for more Art&Architecture students to get involved with them. Checkout the CI Days website and checkout the posters as well as the recordings of some amazing lectures HERE .
Lastly I wanted to mention DigitAG, a blog run by Andrea Graziano. Andrea has a great following of a wide range of people. You should really follow his blog as it is loaded with the newest and impressive projects/articles on technology, art, architecture, programming, etc. Andrea puts out a pdf of his yearly blog which he was nice enough to include me in. You can download his PDF and checkout his blog HERE .
Happy New Year!
