This past week I participated in 5-in-5, along with a number of current ITP students and recent alumni. The challenge:
Do a creative project every day for five straight days, starting Monday, July 28th 2008
Projects must be completed in a day, so they need to be as compact as they are creative
Each project needs a name and documentation posted by the end of the day. It should be a stand-alone accomplishment
And so I did! It was fun and productive, but surprisingly exhausting. Here are my projects. The links for each day go to more detailed documentation on the 5-in-5.com blog.
Day One: Mega Man Linocut Prints
Also featured in Bre Pettis' overview video.
Day Two: twbasic: BASIC for Twitter
Send your BASIC listing to @twbasic. (It may take a while to respond... for some reason the replies API doesn't like to update very frequently.)
Day Three: Subwoofer Tactics (w/C. Anderson Miller)A board game powered by a 30-watt subwoofer.

Day Four: Strokeweight (a New Interface for Textual Expression)Translates between "drawing" gestures and "writing" gestures.

Day Five: Binary Telepathy (also with C. Anderson Miller)
I attempted to transmit binary data to eight experimental subjects using only my mind. Of the attempted 64 bits, 36 were correctly divined.
