Prerequisites from Brief
– A physical prototype (i.e. controller, sensing system, media device)
– A cutting-edge networking architecture
– Data storage and analysis
– Interface / Interaction (physical, virtual, and/or hybrid)
– Github repository / Deployed app
Aims of Project
– Art (Installations / Interactive / Participatory)
The goal of the project is to allow users to experience their own personality make up a 3 dimensional space. To do this the method will be to externalise some of the core components of human personality, based on the CANOE (conscientiousness, agreeableness, neuroticism, openness, extravertism) model into a visualisation projected into a space (Immersion dome).
Users will interface with a touch screen embedded into an installation (form yet to be determined), a raspberry will act as the client and client side computer to allow users to enter their own personality’s traits. These traits will be distributed databases to configure animation parameters, which are then posted into MongoDB for live retrieval into a CSS/HTML P5.JS animation of an anthropomorphic life form. The user can experience within the dome the interpretive forms (abstractions) and see a projection based on in choices the user has made.
Nature of End-Product
A projected abstraction of a users individual persona based on selective users self assessment of personality core characteristics.

4Th Dec 17
Find server to hose MongoDB.
Develop a MongoDB database to store parameter of user interface inputs.
Connect simple html/ JS to database to check CRUD works.
Simple PHP developed to ensure client is posting data externally/ correctly.
Prototype phone gap front end for users to input personality data.
Simple website to host visualisations.
Start to look at button interface to select background for the animations.
Animations (Gintare, Chris)
P5.JS animations as prototype forms with some or all parameters alterable though user interfacing.
Modelling for Interface controller (Chris)
A prototype of the interface container to be roughed out for both the primary and secondary input (buttons for scenery changes)
To be completed as working structure 9th Jan 2018
Learning outcome aims
To deliver a working prototype system that models a human experience into an external space.
Demonstrate awareness of emerging ‘net platforms (multi purpose internet interactions and realisations)
Implementation of technologies, concepts and structures of the internet via our projects use of app design, near instantaneous transformation of data into a physical world.
