Assignment 1 – NYUAD Privilege Project & Blow Switch

This is an interactive storyboard that brings attention to the privilege of NYUAD students through the juxtaposition of different scenarios that occur at the same time and place. The user clicks and drags the each scene onto the board.


The Blow Switch: a metal frame is fixed on one end of a nonconductive string while a moveable conductive foil rests on the other end. Each element is connected to one side of the series circuit with a resistor and LED light. The user has to blow (using a blowdryer or mouth) the sheet of conductive foil onto the frame to complete the circuit and blows from the other direction to cut it.
