MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JULY 31–AUGUST 6, 2017!

Spent my work week at SIGGRAPH learning about virtual reality, Moana, and computer science and spent my weeknights eating too many chicken wings, a medieval beer tasting event, and coaching Tristan through Game of Thrones. A weekend with friends in Los Angeles, from downtown to Santa Monica.

Enjoy!

Untitled
Good morning! This week I’m off to the Los Angeles Convention Center to meet a co-worker covering a computer science and interactive iniatives conference.

Untitled
Untitled
Got here early for the press/media briefing.

Untitled
There was a whole hall of VR and AR experiences to try out, and seeing the Michelangelo up close and personal was pretty cool.

Untitled
Mid-conference update for Episode 3 of Game of Thrones for the Getty.

Untitled
Marissa, the writer for the piece we’re working on.

Untitled
Tried out “Ghost Paint,” a VR experience that lets you spray paint and tag on a brick wall. Here’s my creation.

Untitled
Untitled
Marissa and her cactus

Untitled
If you squint, it kind of looks like the Getty.

Untitled
Sad corn dogs for lunch. The lines for the other food trucks were too long.

Untitled
Robot dance party

Untitled
Marissa feeding her baby

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
This project is called Real Baby, Real Family—and it came about from Japan to address the rapidly declining birth rates. Meant to encourage people ot see their own faces on babies and perhaps be warmed to the idea of parenthood. Marissa wrote about the project for Motherboard if you’re curious!

Untitled
Home from the conference in time for class, and this week it was a remote class. It was so weird to watch a video I was in from a week ago doing a usability test on my screen as I sat there…

Untitled
Hey mushrooms

Untitled
Running outside instead of in a gym. I signed up for a 10K in November, so I should get some outdoor exposure.

Untitled
Untitled
It’s too hot to run in the summer arhgh.

Untitled
A girafee named Tiny there for a drawing lesson? Blasted past this and headed to the Making of Moana panel.

Untitled
It was so interesting to hear about all the details and design decisions that went into building the world in Moana.

Untitled
Met up with Marissa and we headed to check out the exhibition halls.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
A space for film studios to display props and stuff. The Stuart Little car and mouse cracked me up. I used to love that movie!

Untitled
Directors and Producer of Moana signing posters.

Untitled
An AR project that involved a Cathedral called Saint Sophia in China, the postcards could be activated using an app and you could “see” into the Cathedral. Pretty cool.

Untitled
Eye am here to learn.

Untitled
Messy chicken tikka masala wrap from a food truck

Untitled
So happy to have received this Moana lithograph from Disney (free for attending their panel)

Untitled
Neighborhood scenes

Untitled
In a Lyft for an hour across town…

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Planning meeting with amwa

Untitled
Another day at the conference

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
This day we went to the art gallery to see the pieces curated from Latin American artists about technology, art, etc.

Untitled
Couldn’t resist wings for dinner.

Untitled
Plus wanted to use up some things from my fridge including some gyoza from this giant bag.

Untitled
Untitled
Gyoza! Fried up. A little too oily but whoops.

Untitled
Untitled
Gyoza and salad and wings, what a well rounded meal.

Untitled
Untitled
Peanut and Kiki

Untitled
Her face! Hahah

Untitled
Noticed these bikes attached to little locking chain devices. I want one of these.

Untitled
How did that truck get in there?

Untitled
His new favorite spot

Untitled
Working from home on Thursday

Untitled
Giving Glenn some play time.

Untitled
Avocado toast

Untitled
Blurry photo of Tristan and Tweedy on our way to Ralph’s

Untitled
Liiiiike they are so smol.

Untitled
Treats for the boyos.

Untitled
We had quite the selection for dinner—sushi from Ralph’s (bold move, I knwo), MoonJuice beers, hot cheetos…

I’ve been Tristan’s Game of Thrones mentor through the first few episodes as he gets familiar with characters, family names, etc. It’s so much fun to hear his commentary as a new fan hahah.

The moment Bran wakes up…

Untitled
My rosemary chicken wings are done and ready

Untitled
We knocked out three episodes.

Untitled
The next morning, I posted this post on SleepyWaldo about planning my upcoming trip. Thank you to everybody who has left a comment or messaged me ideas for making the most of my first visit to Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. And I know these are huge countries with so much to see! So it’s so helpful to hear your perspectives. Please leave me a comment over there if you don’t mind and have some tips!

Untitled
Back in the office

Untitled
Sad lunch

Untitled
Tristan and I attended the Medieval Microbrews event where we learned about the history of brewing and then tried some medieval-inspired beers.

Untitled
Somewhere between a cider and a beer

Untitled

Untitled
So much fun.

Untitled
Atmospheric evening at work, not so bad.

Untitled
Untitled
Sleepy Sufi on the weekend

Untitled
Untitled
More bass lessons with Zeen

Untitled
Then we picked up Kiki and Ders and headed Downtown for an Escape Room. Haven’t done one of these in a while…

Untitled
Untitled
Here to attempt THE VIRUS. *oooh* Where you are a scientist and have to figure out puzzles to gain access to an antidote to the toxins you were exposed to.

Untitled
So beauty. But we didn’t escape. 😦

Untitled
Mom and dad

Untitled
Untitled
Can’t say no to spicy garlic fries.

Untitled
Emilio and Riley joined for the Escape Room and Barcade afterwards.

Untitled
Got Emilio hooked on my favorite game

Untitled
One of the hardest *no pun intended* pinball machines we tried.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Magic hour

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Took a loooong train ride from Downtown to Santa Monica, opposite sides of the city.

Untitled
So magical!

Untitled
I rarely find myself at this beach, mostly I think because it’s known to be crowded and full of people visting LA for the first time. But hey, it’s nice!

Untitled
So beautiful and the water was actually warm! And I’m a baby when it comes to ocean water, especially the Pacific Ocean. Usually it’s so cold, even in the summer.

Untitled
“I’m taking a picture of you…” “What”

Untitled
A week of garbage food but yum so good

Untitled
Sunday!

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Aw haven’t been to this park for a while and it’s all totally dry

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
I documented this whole day, I hope to edit that and get it up soon!

Untitled
Exhausted

Untitled
Sufi looking directly into the camera…

Untitled
Cooked up some shrimp tacos

Untitled
Mouth is watering now

Untitled
Busted out this bag I haven’t used in a while.

You’ll have to see the rest of the day when I post the “a day in my life!”

Hope you had a great week.

Much love friends.

  1. Those VR things look so so cool!!

    And having a virus in the escape room is brilliant but is scary when you think about it…

    Love the sunset on the beach pictures 🙂
