CODE EXPERIMENT 1 - COMPUTATIONAL LETTER TO PANAGIOTIS







Cambridge, MA / 2018
Harvard Graduate School of Design
Collaborator: Nicolas Ayoub
Instructor: Panagiotis Michalatos


“Dear Pan,

We missed you when you were away for two weeks. Your absence inspired the idea of this project. We hope you won’t have another US visa issue.

Sincerely,
Romy and Nicholas”


The sphere casts 2 shadows (the flag of the US and of Greece), to combine into 1 shadow, the face of our professor, Panagiotis Michalatos.
My role: Coding on C#, Grasshopper.






CODE EXPERIMENT 2 - MEMORY ECHO











Cambridge, MA / 2019
Harvard Graduate School of Design
Instructor: Panagiotis Michalatos


The manipulation constantly recycles the musician’s input in time, making fresh and old sounds discernible. Old inputs sound more electronic while new ones more analog. The visual backdrop acts as an immersive reference.
The project explores the psychological and experiential dimension of human-machine communication in music.

CODE EXPERIMENT 4 - GENERATIVE STAINED GLASS ROSETTES





Cambridge, MA / 2019
Harvard Graduate School of Design
Collaborators: Samuel Clay, Jackson Howell

We attempted to understand and replicate the art of stained glass rosettes through machine learning. By first doing an analysis of color, shape and consistency we were able to translate our findings in relation to musical properties (volume and frequency).
