twittering into the future.

brookiyuki.

Coming back to uni from the break, I was concerned that my skills as a live-tweeter would have dwindled, but instead I found myself settling back into the rhythm of live-tweeting with ease.  The second batch of films was more recent but still held plenty of topics of discussion for me to latch onto.

I found myself getting dragged into long, intense debates about certain cherry-picked moments of the film, with tweets often becoming increasingly theoretical and abstract.  Whilst these were particularly enlightening to certain elements of the film, it also caused me to become distracted and I often found myself missing crucial parts of the film.

However, I personally thought my analysis of the key themes present to be engaging and in-depth, and that the quality of both mine and other’s tweets were worth delving into.  Perhaps it is a testament to the class’s live-tweeting skills that these discussion…

let’s make this beta than before.

Welcome back to my digital artefact for 2019.  For those who don’t know, I’ve been testing out the alpha version of the Arts, English and Media Faculty’s virtual reality art gallery.  It’s been a particularly bumpy road to this point, but it finally has a clear shape and direction.

The future of art could very well follow down the path of virtual reality, as it is a particularly useful and immersive resource that is a great avenue for displaying visuals.  Considering that this gallery is merely one iteration of this software in development, it could be presumed that VR has a role to play in the near future of art.

My new aim for the project is to develop a set of instructions that outlines how to use the virtual gallery.  These instructions will be aimed at newcomers to both the gallery and the Unreal software.  I have partnered with…

Digital Artefact – Vi Vi Vector

Vi Vi Vector, started out as purely artistic expression, displaying iconic snapshots or posters from iconic movies and digitally re-imaging them through the form of vector art. They were then put on Instagram and eventually transferred to the online marketplace ‘Redbubble’. However, the products and quality of the products that were being sold with my vector art, on Redbubble didn’t fit with the audience or aesthetic I wanted to associate with my brand. Not to mention the profit margins associated with selling on the marketplace only allowed around 10% profit gain, which for the time and effort put into each piece, with next-to-no recognition, was quite disappointing.

Placing one of the most essential ideation methods into practice, I decided to brainstorm the best way to actively facilitate a way I could possibly enter the market selling vector art as my own rather from a…

https://lilileah.wordpress.com/2019/06/15/lab-grown-meat-ep-2/

https://lilileah.wordpress.com/2019/06/16/insects-protein-ep-3/

Concept:

My digital artefact is about the future of protein food in the short-term (3 years), medium-term( 20 years) and long-term (100 years). Since the technology developing speed and the natural environment is and will be different, so I have mainly discussed one animal protein alternative for each period, which is plant-based meat, cultured meat and insects respectively for each period.

Methodology:

The whole blog series starts with a simple but clear explanation about why we need meat substitutes. What is the main alternative that the public will consume in 3 years, 20 years and 100 years, I also listed the pros and cons of each meat alternative for each period.

I originally planned to film ‘what I eat in a day’ style video to show my prediction about future protein food. However, I later found out that it would be very difficult. So I…

AI and Interpreting-A DA and Contextual Essay

Jiafeng Guo

Please find my DA here.

Project’s concept: My DA focused on the the relationship between AI and human interpreters. With the rise of machines, can human still make a living? When it comes to the occupations like translator and interpreter, what are the advances AI have made and what are the challenges with the fact that there are subtle differences among different languages. In the short, medium and long term, what kind of role machine will play in this relationship?

Iteration: At first, I didn’t figure out what DA I really want to demonstrate in my first video pitch until I got the feedback from Callum Harvey and Alexander Mastronardi. Callum suggested me to do some research on ‘whether AI would replace human interpreters ‘ while Alexander gave me a clue that I can focus on ‘how current interpreters are already using emerging technology’. So I did…

BCM325 Digital Artefact Report: A Series of Video Essays on Educational Holography for Lecture attendance improvement

Page || Trang

As part of the Future Cultures (BCM325) subject, I have been developing a digital artefact (DA) addressing a future challenge throughout the Autumn semester. Initially inspired by the holographic counterpart singers performed in the opening ceremony of an e-sport event, my project has pivoted around holography’s potential usage in improving lecture attendance of regional campus students. Employing a 3-time scale development model, I divided my DA into 3 stages of construction, which refer to the short-term future (5-10 years), mid-term (20-30 years), and long-term (50 years)

finally here, digital artefact

My digital artefact was something that challenged me as a student and as an individual. The concept of my digital artefact had changed regularly throughout my future cultures experience. Although I believe fundamentally towards the end I had accumulated my ideas, responses and criticism to make something I believe is relevant for the future. The concept of my work was to create a blog that targeted issues regarding identity and how it can change the future in different scales, whether that be long or short term. So far I only have one post on my blog, which is aimed towards gender selection. Although I only have one post at the moment, I would like to actually continue this blog for several concepts regarding identity and addressing the future once this class has commenced. I had produced a post that I had taken the time to accumulate ideas from myself…
