Although I moved into my apartment last December, decorating and designing the space has been a long-term work in progress. I just recently ordered some floral wall decals online from Urban Outfitters and put them up in my studio apartment. I think they add nice splashes of color and visual interest on the walls. The bold, solid colors and nature motif make me happy and go well with my subtle Asian design elements and existing floral photography. The decals are super easy to put on walls, and can be peeled right off and reused.
Today, Kris and I went to check out Playing The Building: An Installation by David Byrne at the Battery Maritime Building, an old abandoned ferry terminal in Lower Manhattan. The installation consists of an old organ wired to various parts of the building with wires. Pressing the organ keys “plays” the building by triggering various mechanisms that create sound. An eerily, almost haunted house sort of feel. Perhaps it’s just easier to listen for yourselves: here is an MP3 recording of Lee-Sean and Kris playing the building. Here are 3 more recordings of other visitors playing the building.
I’m going back to school!
I have been accepted into the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University (NYU). I will be starting the two-year Masters of Professional Studies (MPS) program in September 2008. According to their website, ITP is:
A graduate department dedicated to creativity and critical thinking applied to new technologies…More than just a graduate school, ITP is a creative ecosystem – a living and interdependent flow of people, projects, ideas and applications all dedicated to exploring and expanding the ability of real people to use media to connect to one another and influence the world around them.
While I concentrated in Government (Harvard-speak for majoring in political science) in undergrad, I have always wanted to go to art school as well. ITP deals with the intersection between technology, art and society, so I think it is the perfect fit for me. I hope to build up some technical chops and make some good connections so I can further develop the multimedia production, technological consulting services and music production wings of my company, Hepnova Multimedia.
