First (Belated) Update for Shorts 2014

Updated Side Projects Section

August 21, 2013

I've started updating the side projects section of Tiger Shorts. Additions include Virtual Book AC, an interactive constrained design game based on a work by Dieter Roth; Stripper Fader (“He strips! He fades!”); and the Cape Town Postcard Map Project, which matches old postcards of Cape Town, South Africa, scanned from my father’s collection to a historical map of the city. The map project also pieces together a strange narrative from the city's engineering history.
