    Week 2 – Snow Monkey Observation


    2010 - 01.31

    Our task for this assignment was to observe some monkey at the Central Park Zoo.  Thinking that the monkeys we’re going to observe were in doors I was not concerned with how cold it was outside.  I soon realized that the monkeys Arturo and I were to observe were snow monkeys outside and that we will have to endure the 14℉ temperature.  It was cold and cloudy Saturday morning when Arturo and I observed Snow Monkeys at the Central Park Zoo in New York City.

    Here is a link to the several spreadsheets of the data we collected.  Monkey Observation Data

    Week 1 – Meteor


    2010 - 01.31

    I wanted to create the motion of a meteor coming into Earth’s atmosphere. Seeing a meteor going through the nights sky is completely random. In my sketch I tried to create a random interval of when the meteors appear.
