Melissa Pareja Proposal

I dont know exactly what i’m going to do for my formalization. I know i want to use bird sounds as part of it and maybe some 3D modeling of typical Colombian homes. I want to do a type of map formalization but i also dont want to use Processing. I was thinking of maybe doing a 3D model of parts of the city and doing a video of the camera moving throughout the streets along with an audio that included sounds you would typically hear on the streets like salsa music, birds, rain, motorcycles and cars beeping, people talking and laughing. The 3D modeling will probably take several days so i dont know how realistic my idea is because i want to make a video of around 5 minutes of the camera going around the 3D city. Im going to base my models off of pictures and sketches and maybe use Google earth as a reference as well. I would really like to use a map in Processing that moves along with the video showing the several points and paths, but im not sure because i’ve been struggling with processing so i might also just end up doing a hand-drawn map, but thats just an idea. The only thing im 100% sure of is i definitely want to use audio sounds that mix the urban and also natural culture of Medellin.

Equalizer Buildings

So my idea is to create a 3D model from a picture of the poorer area of Medellin. Along with that, make a 3D equalizer (the bars that move up and down based on the music playing) that plays to some kind of music that I’ll have. We’ll/I’ll then combine the model and equalizer into one. Meaning that the buildings will become the equalizer and move up and down according to the music played.

I’ve gotten the equalizer to work, but it’s not as smooth as I was hoping, so I’ll be looking into that.

Night Life in Medellin – Guillermo and Alex

Between Guillermo and I, our idea is to create a map of college student “hotspots” around la universidad de antioquia. We plan to go and interview students on campus where they like to go for fun. We plan to take data and sample questions like “What is the name of the restaurant/bar?” “What is the quality of the place”, “How much is it?” “What kind of music do they play?” and we will ask them if they would go to that place. We will take the number of people that recommend a place and display the information visually with a different sized pulsating circle. We plan to make this map interactive by allowing the user to get information by clicking on a pulsating circle and displaying our data visually. We will color coordinate places and create a key to display how good a place is to go for fun. This program will be completed in Processing.
