Got in trouble :(

  I wanted to use MPR121 to control LED. It works well separately when I test them, but could not work together. I think these two codes may influenced by each other, because MPR121 delay as well.                   CODE: // include adafruit_NeoPixel.h #include <Adafruit_NeoPixel.h> #ifdef __AVR__ #include <avr/power.h> #endif #define PIN 6 // Parameter 1 = number of pixels in strip // Parameter 2 = Arduino pin number (most are valid) // Parameter 3 = pixel type flags, add together as needed: //   NEO_KHZ800 … More

    Video code #define ledPin 13 #define ledPin2 A0 void setup() { pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT ); } void loop() { //is flash digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH ); digitalWrite(ledPin2, LOW ); delay(1100); digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW ); digitalWrite(ledPin2,HIGH); delay(200); }… More

A perfect, healthy tribe: allsortsyouth.

After came back from CSM, I found some groups on Reddit and FB, but people in these groups are quite miscellaneous, many of them look like that: I think they might confuse the concept of transvestism, homosexuality and exhibitionist . I hope to find a positive and healthy tribe. Finally I find allsorts younth project. It is a project based in Brighton to support and empower young people under 26 who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or unsure (LGBTU) of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. They offer a range of activities: 1.Weekly Drop-In on Tuesday… More

Finding Neotribe!

I chose the tribe:transvestism because I’m so curious about why they dress like this. Obviousely that some of them do it for fashion, and some of them are guy, but what else? My friend told me that many boys in CSM are crazy about girls clothes and make up, I followed their ins, trying to find someone to interview in CSM. But when I arrived, I didn’t find anyone who looks like fancied dressing. I guess they might only dress up on big days. Then I find a group… More

Understanding of Neo-tribalism

An important expression of ‘New Tribalism’ is the trend towards modern eco-villages.  Ecoregional Democracy and peace movement advocates are also often new tribalists as well, as the groups share common ideals. Neo-Tribalism is the ideology that human beings have evolved to live in a tribal, as opposed to a modern, society,and thus cannot achieve genuine happiness until some semblance of tribal lifestyles has been re-created or re-embraced. According to Strachan, “The fact is, the independent thinking individual has always posed, throughout history, the greatest obstacle to attempts to collectivize human beings and now, in the latest version of this oft-repeated… More

Recording our idea~

We caught up a lot of interesting ideas and I recorded some of them. I was still attracted by WM’s handcraft while Virginie and Pipe were interested in “Utopia” and “story teller.” 1.Make yourself a cup of cocktail to express your own feeling about Utopia. 2.Draw something on a paper then scan it, create a pattern with strangers.

Our prototype!

We made our first prototype in Pipe’s home on 7 November.Firstly, we created a “loom” with cardboard and rope , then chose two pictures and “loom”them together(Fig1-3). feedback from teacher: 1.Create our own”#” 2.Use something high tech like media(phone..APP..) 3.Think about how to absorpt people. 4.Write down process 5.Consider about the texture or material(definitely can’t be paper hahaha) Then, we finish our second prototype in 3D workshop on 18 November.(Fig4-8). We invented 6 people as volunteer, so it looked kind of like… More
