Borderlands is an immersive installation that uses projection mapping to portray the migrant journey across US borders. The installation is designed to be a multi-sensory experience that engages the audience through visual and audio elements, and is divided into different sections representing different stages of the journey. The installation aims to raise awareness and empathy towards the struggles that migrants face during their journey, and to encourage reflection on the importance of human rights and social justice. The video and audio used in the installation are sourced from news report footage of migrant travelers, and were edited to create a seamless and immersive visual and auditory experience using Touch Designer, Adobe Premiere Pro, and After Effects. The installation was inspired by choreographer Eileene Vicencio, who has been working as a content advisor on the project. In the future, the installation will be integrated into Vicencio's choreography, titled La Bestia, El Coyote y El American Dream, to further enhance the immersive experience for the audience. Overall, Borderlands provides a unique perspective on the issues surrounding immigration into the US, inviting the audience to engage with the topic in a meaningful way.
Design an AR mobile application that provides the users a platform to gain real-time quick recommendations from fashion students on the outfit of the day. The users can either receive advice for their own garments or while in-store shopping. After the advising session, the users can also save the best-matching outfits for their future uses. Another main feature is reading out-loud garments’ descriptions by scanning QR codes on the clothing tags. It can help the users who are blind and visually impaired easily access the features of the garments.
Fragile objects need care when packaging. Learning how to package your fragile item the correct way decreases the chance of damage during shipping. Get your customized packaging instructions with the guidance of AR. Detect if your item is fragile. Detection ensures what type of packaging supplies are needed. Measure the length and width of your fragile item.Measuring ensures the amount of packaging supplies needed.
1Reality is a Mixed Reality solution aimed at Emergency Healthcare. The Mixed Reality experience is crucial in environments requiring quick hands-free interaction. Emergency Medical Technicians can view vital information before reaching the victim, and during treatment while relaying the live feed to a doctor off-site. This system comprises an accessory such as an AR Glass, a Wearable, or an implant. The accessory is embedded with a secure chip containing a user’s documents and identification information. The future goal is to merge the concept of augmented reality into a world where it aids users while blending into the background, making the realities one.
The purpose of this project is to identify key problems that Tesla screens have which make it hard for users like senior citizens to use them. This is to redesign the main screen to ensure users can safely and quickly access features without issues. Throughout the project, I tested Tesla’s screen, identified the problems, designed solutions, and tested to show improvements.
