App for iteration #C

These are a couple of trial in studying the form/content of the drawing.

Reference that can be applied in drawing canvas:
Text Character Paint (Text Rain by Camille Utterback & Romy Achituv )

Pattern (from Processing Example Sketch )

Pollac Paint

I have not being able to use pattern and drop paint for now.Considering the aspect of playable,they are interesting. Pollac paint is possible to build and can become an iteration. However, content of how they can be applied in art therapy is lacking crucial support now. It can be viewed also as a digital format of simple/simplistic app to draw this effect without mass preparation. How physical format is different than digital remain a issue standing there.

Spectrum draw
This is especially studying on applying color plate inside the app.
Using library

Simple Color testing
a progress sketch in applying simple color because the spectrum draw filed to be applied in tablet.


New Prototype

This goal of this drawing program is for testing user response for those “playable” app that one can easily found in the app market. App such as WURM and Silk, provided users new experience playing these app. Not only because of it can create a pattern but also it allow user’s freedom to interact. In this program, if one clicks the screen, it will generate some particles and these particles, according to physical animation, create the trace in the painting.  At the beginning, I found the effect of trace has some potential for further development in doodling. I went back to ask Fabie to test this for me. She did not like the idea that computer took her job in drawing. When I show her a simple bubble interaction, she seems more interested. This prototype did break the assumption that any kind of drawing app can be used for art therapy. It actually not and gives more distraction. The animation is different for sure. But when function has to suit for personal preference, it had better to become neutral.

Although the result does not seem promising, I do have a couple findings. The action of coloring provides a visible goal and achievement in these small coloring goal. Mandala drawing, group art therapy,and color blending will possibly return on my working list. The dynamic process of group art and human’s response to the circle might worth for creating new user’s experience.

How To Make Moss Graffiti



Our inspiration was the work of Anna Garforth
021110moss07_square72021110moss08_square72021110moss09_square72021110moss10_square72 seeing Anna Garforth’s use of moss as graffiti we’ve been keen to try this at home. Turns out it’s a very simple process and we had the perfect wall in the backyard so we gave it a go. Cheap, easy and interesting garden decorations, we’d recommend this to anyone who has the space.

What You Need

Butter Milk
Paint Brush


1. Decide on an image and transfer onto the wall in chalk. You could use a stencil or draw freehand. We use an overhead projector and are using the monogram we designed for our wedding.

2. Collect a handful of moss. Once you start looking for it you’ll see it everywhere! We found ours under some big shady trees near our house.

3. Wash as much of the dirt and plant matter off the underside of moss as possible.

4. Place the moss into the blender.

5. Add a table spoon or two of sugar and 1/2 cup of butter milk.

6. Blend to the consistency of a thickshake. Add some water if your mixture is too thick.

7. Pour mixture into a container with a lid.

8. Using a paint brush, paint on the moss mixture onto the wall in the shape of your image.

9. Keep the additional moss mixture in the fridge. We’ve been reapplying the moss mixture every second day and on the alternative day spritzing the area with water.

Additional Notes: After a week we’re already starting to see the moss establish itself on the wall. We expect it will be about a month until it’s fully established. We’ll keep you posted on the progress. Also, try and choose a wall that isn’t exposed to long periods of direct sunlight.

Study Shows Art May Help With


June 6th

A new study shows that our brains react in a similar way whether we are in love or whether we are looking at beautiful artwork. Research by Professor Semir Zeki demonstrates that looking at art stimulates our brains which create the same chemical response as when we are in love. This is just further evidence that art may prove beneficial for those that are feeling down or depressed.

Professor Semir talks more about this in the following video posted by the United Kingdom’s ArtFund.
