Jordan UrbanovichBlogLeave a Comment

Last time, we discussed the Perceptions.Live functionality for Groups & Community Visualization. This week we will peer into the benefits and capabilities of the standard user browsing the platform. Phase 1: “Roll Out” C. Users- Browse Movements, Causes, and Locations What it is: Let’s not forget the outside world! People everywhere in our fragmented civilization are searching for their kin, in some form or another. We are trying to build a very broad and autonomous media platform that facilitates the connection of like-minded individuals and communities through creative collaboration. For this reason, the Perceptions.Live homepage will be a hub for all networks that the platform currently serves. With advanced search capabilities, users can explore new ways of living, eco-sustainability techniques, opportunities for collaboration, and much much more–or simply, browse around a map of the globe and learn something new. Sustainability: Until video playback can be decentralized, for now we will focus … Read More

Greetings from global community cyber-land, where the early Perceptions.Live platform is almost finished! Working from the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East, the Balkans, and me currently in South America, for the past two months our team has quite literally been coordinating the platform’s final MVP development from all around the world. It’s no simple task to work with these different timezones, cultures, and manners of communicating, but it feels important for our foundation to transcend borders from the get-go. Above all, I am proud to say that together, we are accomplishing our goals and have a beautiful product to show for the work we are putting in! Intro: What’s the big deal with Perceptions.Live? I was asking myself that for months–years, even. When all you have is an intuitive nudge and just the right amount of real-life affirmations to move forward with an abstract notion of how society could transform itself, … Read More

Happy new moon! I normally release these posts around the full moon (just in case you hadn’t noticed :D), but this time around the flow of things needed time to catch up. And how glad I am that they did! Today I want to share with you several aspects of how the PRCPTION Travel vision ties together. Musicians & Artists It was exciting to get back into documenting talented musicians. This traveling Argentine couple came along and their celestial Andean music is just irresistible. From intense Yage ceremonies to simple afternoon jam sessions, it was a magical week of inspiration from these two at the Finca Del Origen in the Sierra Nevada mountains in Colombia. And now, they have a video to help find them gigs and opportunities in their travels! What if it were this easy for non-filmmakers to support artists and musicians? Community Centers This is an older … Read More

The Social User Experience & Creativity

What the internet of the last decade has encouraged us to explore: How do we perceive the world around us? And how do we transform those sights & sounds into mediums/media that others, friends and strangers alike, will have the chance to experience to some degree? If social networking has taught our civilization anything, it’s that we enjoy peering at and through the lens of others. But has that lesson come at too heavy a price? The price of having our curiosity satisfied has come at the will of these big companies mediating our social connectivity, restricted not only by their rules but by their interfaces. And the trouble arrives when we realize how in-the-dark we’ve been about the [lack of] capabilities using these social interfaces. In this post, I will explore this concept through some tidbits of what the PRCPTION Travel project has been up to in the past few weeks. … Read More
