Lakeside Laboratory

I explored many ideas while staying at the Lakeside Laboratory. In addition to being a biology field station, the laboratory hosts high school students for the summer. During my residency I dropped in on many of the classes and went on literal field trips to collect specimens, count invasive species, and learn about the various biomes around Northern Iowa.

  • Used photogrammetry to commemorate recognizable locations around the grounds
  • Explored using panoramas to capture the mood and movement in a place
  • Trained a machine learning model to convert vector maps from around the world into “Iowa” style satellite maps.
  • Created an experiment for visualizing audio recordings of animals in the area
  • Explored ideas of non-linear time and deja-vu through video manipulation
  • Investigated visualization and sonification of buoy data from the lake
