Hi,
I’m Chandler Collins. I'm a UVA student passionate about technology, media, policy, and the Oxford comma.

Here's what I've been working on,

In progress: Building an open-source Arduino GPS belt.

Goal: Design and build a wearable compass belt.

Inspired by a piece on [XX]'s wearable compass piece from Wired 2004. I've always been fascinated by biohacking and wearable technology––believing that the 5 senses we're born with are only a foundation, and that we can use technology to augment our senses and more richly experience the world.

Quote from Craigmod on data mind & Paris Quote from "Mixed Feelings" on belt

Thanks to [XX] for the idea Problem with Feelspace: Too expensive, can't get them Now moving from idea (see circuit diagram) and desire into learning soldering and building protoype right now. I will keep this page updated as I iterate and improve the design. Stay tuned.

– Original circuit diagram
built in Tinkercad

The site was built on top of the Stacey CMS, running on dropbox and complemented by a custom admin interface. This system will slowly become the central entry point for all content. Issues will be constructed online, exported as XML and then passed into InDesign to create the final printed magazine.

— Design, Frontend development, Backend development.

Writing about how to use grayscale to limit device use.

Building a static blog site using Hugo & Google Firebase.

Designing website and logo for the UVA Humanitarian Collaborative.

Un Magazine is a printed, Melbourne-based bi-annual, contemporary art magazine. I was commissioned to design their new site and to propose a strategy for moving their published content online.

We worked on developing a design and a structure which would align closely with the original magazine, while still taking advantage of the digital medium.
