This thesis gives me the opportunity to combine these guiding interests and experiment at the interface between design and programming. I’m most interested in the design elements and choices that saturate the online and digital experience. These sounds and sights are highly contextual, and exist to streamline a user’s actions. Taking these elements out of their intended contexts and examining their function objectively poses an interesting problem for me.
As a beginning project, I have taken iconic computer- and internet-related sounds and mashed them together into a game. This represents the beginning of many possible directions for me to take, and I will be refining and presenting my ideas here as the semester progresses.
