FILE FESTIVAL Tempo: Cor FILE Sao Paulo 2019 Electronic Language International Festival ‘Tempo: cor’ consists of an immersive installation that seeks to modify our experience of time by converting hours into color. A set of chromatic clocks, each set to a different GMT time zone, projects, in a semicircle, the current time in their mathematical and chromatic representations. The conversion between these two forms of time representation is based on an algorithm composed of sinusoidal functions that modulates the RGB colors as a function of the current time, gradually modifying the intensities of blue, green and red throughout the day: at midday yellow predominates, while at four in the afternoon the hour is red; midnight is blue, six o’clock in the morning is green. Side by side, the colors projected by the clocks merge, creating an immersive experience of a continuous and circular time, between the different time zones, that crosses the entire chromatic spectrum.

Agile Is not Easy for UX: (How to) Deal with It Introduction Agile has taken over the software-development world. In recent years, it’s become the most popular software-development methodology. We categorized over 500 user onboarding experiences into 8 UI/UX patterns What is user onboarding Before we jump in to user onboarding UI/UX patterns, lets take a moment to review what user onboarding is, as why it's so important. User onboarding is a once in a user’s lifecycle experience that—when done well—shortens a user's time to value. We refer to this moment of value as a user’s wow or aha moment—aha like, “Wow this is awesome!” Or “Aha!

10 Usability Heuristics Applied to Video Games Video games may seem very different from websites or apps: they don’t usually have a practical goal (such as to inform people or help them create an artifact), but instead they aim to entertain.
