BOX: On form & NUIs
A box is often associated with opening a hidden object beneath its lead, similarly the tendency of origami paper is to unfold, open up a large space or data points from intricate patterns. The traditional mode of interaction like a pointer mouse, technology mediated senses wouldn't suffice. We need 3D interfaces and hybrid interaction systems to meet the demands of connected world
Visualizing a networked relationships of a system is often complex. In the course professional product, I designed a system visualization tool to compile all the user stories, clients goals, and user stories. Using node maps with d3.js data-viz library. FInd the code below
Augmented Social Network Architecture - SIDER’18, Helsinki, Finland
Abstract: The current model for social media interaction uses GUIs which limits the capacity of social interaction. In this paper, I explore a theoretical framework, ANSA (Augmented Social Network Architecture) for an AR social network platform using the existing digital architecture. The framework primarily consists of the virtual containers, context-based content, frequency-based content and attention mediators, serving as the backbone. It has been developed through a participatory workshop, user interviews and a series of VR prototypes namely, virtual cylinder, virtual dome box, networked virtual cylinders. The paper further addresses the issues related to the application of this framework from a socio-technical perspective.

writing about writing
Above all what I love is the moment after I write my first line, I transcend into a state where places coalesce, faces transform and time no longer seems linear. I feel as if I am the orchestrator of a million transient symphonies just before their crescendos. Blasting through my nib, words resurrect from the chasm of memories like crackling embers, setting fire to my colorless pages, leaving behind a deeper sense of bliss.
