postscript: Writing in the Late Age of Print

writingrecorder_01-thumb.jpg

My thesis is an exploration in new digital writing and mark-making environments. Looking at physical surfaces such as bathroom walls and their virtual counterparts like Instant Messaging and Text Messaging, my work straddles two worlds: The virtual and the physical. By conducting a series of experiments studying written forms, multimedia environments, and collaborative writing surfaces, I will expand our definition of the writing space and uncover new methods of communicating.  read more »

Bathroom Writing Database

Bathroom Writing, an interactive anthology of inscriptions found in restrooms, is a virtual bathroom wall where visitors search posts through various filtering systems. Each post on the wall is cataloged through a variety of keywords, such as sex, writing implement, color, and theme. Information is then hidden and revealed based on decisions made by the visitor.  read more »

These learners may have a limited background in mathematics and programming logic and also vastly different motivations from a student majoring in computer science. Yet the pedagogy we use to teach them programming is the same as for everyone.  read more »
