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

How can we map the gesture based interactions into virtual space?

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.
