Postman Project

This project, within the context of the discipline Audiovisual and Multimedia II, intends to represent the non-linear life of a postman in rural area of Portugal, where unlike the cities, there's still a close relationship with it. So through a non-linear platform you can deconstruct several examples of interaction between the postman and the recipients of the letters.

Negroponte spoke to a future day, that any machine would work without the ability to speak.

Tell Me Stories

The project “ Tell me stories ” was born of the will of helping so many grandparents like Grandmother Bisa, who lives a sad and terrifying reality, lonelyness.
Opposed to this reality, but only in a question of generation it is the view of the children who are deposited every day in playgrounds and hardly spend time with their parents.
So conscious that the children are a fountain inexhaustible of joy and that grandparents are a pandora's box filled with stories and adventures, the Institution Entrajuda is promoting the familiarity between both generations.
The message: the old men have to give very much to the children and the children have much joy to give to the oldest.
The inicial image will be an old lady in an empty room with a television set to the front, and in the same identic room appears a child playing playstation, but on the oppeosite side, This way the child occupies the place of the television and the playstation the place of the old lady. Next two images are put on top and the clip finishes with an image with a child seated in the ground and an old lady in a chair with a book in the hand reading a storie to the child.

During Christmas’ Holidays I decided to do an Assemblage Workshop. The challenge was to write some phrases about six persons known or invented by us. The sentences had to describe, in one word, the meaning of Christmas to them, and after that build an assemblage translating that word to it.
The workshop was held by Richard Camara, at FBAUL December '08.
