My name is Micky van Zeijl, I'm a lecturer at the Amsterdam University of Applied Science. I teach courses in Design Ethics and Design Argumentation and a project about physical interaction.
Fab Academy Adventure
This is my Fabulous Fab Academy project page where I document everything for my Fab Academy. Here you can find my weekly assignments, my final project and a page about me.
For my final project I would like to make a interactive tree that re-creates the feeling of lying under a tree looking trough the foliage at the sky and stars while you're in your own city home. The image on the left is inspiration for my project. It's a painting made by Piet Mondriaan in 1911 with the title *Gray Tree* it is exhibited at Gemeentemuseum in The Hague.
Every week I will post about my project development and about the assignment of that week. I created my own format that way I don't have to think about it to much each week.
Every week I will make a planning of the things I need to do and learn. Based on the questions raised by the weekly assignment(s). I will try to sometimes look ahead for weeks to come and plan ahead. I will post this in my weekly planning. I hope this will keep me on track.
Link with final project
Almost each weekly assignment will have a link with my final project. I really want to incorporate this with my process and planning. Therefore I will mention the link with my final project for each assignment, and why I will do this.
Research and inspiration
Every week I will give an overview of the research I did. And I will show you how this research inspired me for my weekly assignment.
What I did – step-by-step
This part will describe my different iterations during the week. I will write down the steps I made towards the end result
What I did wrong – and how I solved it
Most important part of my process is to track the things that went wrong and how I solved these problems. This is the part where I learn the most.
What I learned
This section provides a summery of the things I learned from the step-by-step approach and my own mistakes
