I want to construct a giant-sized box fort. As a child, I often built forts made out of boxes in nearly every room in my house every time we moved. Creating these box forts is a memory I feel like many of us share and many of us dreamed to create the ultimate fort. I want to create an explorable space with childhood objects and sounds that can appear based on your location in this unrealistic dream of a box fort.
To create this tool, I set a simple background, then took each (lowercase) letter of the alphabet and coordinated it with a shape, line, or point. I also let the pen tool work when the mouse was pressed so that a user could write a letter, then press the key of the letter to see what symbol was created. For each of the images above, I had users write their names letter by letter- drawing the letter, then tapping the corresponding key. Many of the corresponding actions to keys have elements of randomness so that each image is different and surprising. (Names above: Danova, Amanda, Zeke, Matias)
3. Instructions by me: Each time you have a meal, when you finish the meal, write a poem on your napkin about the food you ate- without mentioning the exact name of the food. If the food was bad, make it a short poem. If the food was good, make the poem long. Take a photo of the napkin with the poem on it, you may then choose what to do with the napkin. When you show a poem to a friend, see if they can guess what your meal was.
