Waiting at La Prima is an excrutiating experience. Any student could tell you this. As the best coffee place on campus, La Prima needs a system that is less aggravating and keeps not only students, but non-student consumers as well.
We propose and app and Bluetooth interface that queues and charges consumers orders in a more efficient and less space intrusive technique.
In order to integrate all of our personal media representations into a final composition, we decided to dissect and re-incorporate the most striking and most meaningful portion of each of our personal representations into one piece of media, instead of incorporating each piece of media as a separate entity. The rationale for this approach was that while each of us chose a piece of media to reflect each individual as a person, as a group we become more than just separate entities together, but a completely different whole made up of the most important or meaningful portions of ourselves that contribute to the group goal. The first media representation selected was a video from an app that incorporates gregorian religious music with timed geometric animation, from which we used the music in our panorama video. This represents Amber Jones, who defines herself by her love of the composition of music, sound, and technology in beautiful and meaningful combinations. The second media representation chosen was an image of the glass ceiling of the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, by Judy Han. She describes her life now as a combination of discrete blocks of interests and commitments, symbolized by the discrete and differently sized and colored flowers. She hopes to incorporate all of her interests into a fulfilling life like the integrated and finished glass piece. The next piece of media was an image chosen by Amanda Marano of a painting of flowers and hummingbirds overlaid by a white circuit diagram that incorporates her love of technology and her major in ECE and her love of traditional beauty. From these we incorporated a white circuit diagram overlaid over the glass flower image that panoramas through Amber’s musical choice. The last media representation was chosen by Zach Halle, a gif that we incorporated to the beat of the music over our panorama image. He chose this because of his love of mathematical and programming tools, which work together to create interesting patterns and mesmerizing movement on screen.
