Eyespot Mimicry + SevoAssisted Paperengineering in clothing




Thinking about servo-assisted paper engineering applied to clothing, and how the benefits of popup books can help reveal and disguise certain elements onto a garment.  Maybe when it unfolds? It reveals another eye like Eyespot Mimicry in Nature using an M-fold variation? Or maybe it reveals spikes in our clothing? When feeling a little edgier or wanting to feel less soft by applying pyramidal popups?

Artist in the Archive: W5


For this week’s homework, we’re building off of the MARC template overviewed in class to create investigative “excavations” of the Library of Congress’ digital archive via the MARC records . How can we reveal something new to us and others through these new connections? We talked about about nodes and edges via graph theory, and apply that sort of thinking to the MARC records using Sigma.js + Node.js. 

How do we get from looking at Marc to some interesting computational questions? In class we took a look at 4 sort of methodical approaches to take/ think about when approaching a collection: composition, comparison, distribution, and relation. We also talked about approaching the process in different ways, like from the view of traditional archeological excavations/digs and their fieldnotes. How can we borrow that sort of dissection and physical representation of process & data to our MARC explorations?
