Face Blind (Revisited)

21-Feb-09 | 6,849 views

Face Blind was my final project for Visualizing the Five Senses last semester. However for some reason I never had a chance to document it, and as a kicking off of my “blog catching up” week I would like to start with this project. Just as a quick recap of the project, Face Blind is […]

I chose the topic of face blindness of my final project for “visualizing the five senses” because I was simply stunned while I bump into the website of prosopagnosia. It was almost at once I decided to create something under this topic and also I think it’s highly related to this class. Prosopagnosia, also known […]

Wrapping-up the five senses: poster and proposal

The semester is coming to the end and we were creating a collage of all previous class works… and it turns out to be no-so-systematic as in one poster. Here is the archive for all posts regarding the class this semester. coin and collage:   poster and proposal (more images): I’ll keep working on the […]

Visualizing Taste: Artificial Tastes

07-Nov-08 | 3,435 views

How many tastes we are enjoying today are artificial? How many of them are still real? I found this lovely website the other day and was amazed that so many tastes could be simulated by chemical compounds. Almost immediately I decided to take this data source for the visualization assignment for the taste.  Visit the […]

Visualizing Smell: Group Assignment

07-Nov-08 | 62,062 views

Group assignment by Robert Carlsen, Brien Colwell, Cynthia Hilmoe, Liangjie Xia. The smell visualization is based on the experiment in the paper “Bilateral olfactory sensory input enhances chemotaxis behavior”(Nature Magazine. Matthieu Louis, Thomas Huber, Richard Benton, Thomas P Sakmar & Leslie B Vosshall). We tried to look into the larvae’s triangulation behavior and assumed that […]

Visualizing Smell: filter, represent, refine and interact

It had been an intense week for p-com so my visualizing piece is not a finished work yet. Here’s what I’ve done from last week for visualizing the smell: Filter In my case I don’t really need all data of the gradient field pixel by pixel since I’m just gonna draw the contour lines for […]

Visualizing Smell: Acquire and Parse

15-Oct-08 | 5,657 views

I spent the whole afternoon today writing some very ugly codes to extract the space gradient and larvae path data from the original xml file and it’s almost done. I’m now able to sketch with the raw data and have my own first visual impression on the data: Next steps: Performance!!! current performance is too […]

Scent visualization preparation

07-Oct-08 | 12,558 views

Just spent a whole afternoon browsing for different visualizations and to my surprise I didn’t find many cases directly dealing with the smell. This week’s case is to visualize the data collected in an experiment by Dr. Vosshall’s research group on the navigation of genetically modified drosophila larvae through an odor field. It started to […]

Two sides of a coin (literally)

I switched to the newer microscope eventually since I didn’t find a way to keep the top light of the QX3 on because I wanted to sample something opaque. Here’s what I got (click to see it REEEAAALLY BIIIGGG): After taking pictures for whatever I can grab on the table, I decided to create a […]
