Inspirational PDF Magazines - Smashing Magazine Advertisement PDF magazines are a great promotional tool used by companies and collectives. They are quick to put together, can be attached to emails, or made available as free downloads. Numerous visual arts publications from around the world are available for you to draw inspiration from. These magazines serve as excellent sources of both conceptual and visual design. Furthermore, it’s both interesting and important to know what other artists do — to explore new artistic style, learn new techniques and make new contacts.

3DJ - Andreas Koller The realtime 3D-scan of the DJ is manipulated into abstract graphics. The depth data was aquired with a Kinect and parameterized with a MIDI-controller. Created with Processing. Using toxiclibs, Processing Kinect library by Dan Shiffman, PeasyCam, promidi and FullScreen API as well as code from examples from Generative Gestaltung. Commissioned by sound:frame. Best of Yanko Design 2011 & Yanko Design Best of Yanko Design 2011 Steve Jobs hired designer Hartmut Esslinger as the modern-day Snow White for his projects code-named after the seven dwarfs. The vision was to infuse Apple products with “born-in-America gene” and DNA inspired by “Hollywood and music, a bit of rebellion and natural sex appeal.” Hartmut’s mantra was simple, “Form follows emotion,” a twist on the maxim that form follows function. Yanko Design respects both these aphorisms but believes that we should not limit creativity within the realms of form, function and emotions; thus we follow Form Beyond Function. 2011 has been a significant year in terms of historical uprisings, financial stability, nature’s rebuke and the loss of visionaries.

Project 3: Antialiasing, Subsampling, Supersampling and the Frequency Domain Carlos Eduardo Scheidegger UID: 00454219 Abstract: In this project, I investigated techniques for antialiasing for image subsampling. I also analyzed their behavior, especially in the frequency domain. Finally, I also analyzed and investigated interpolating supersampling filters for increasing the spatial resolution of an image. We denote the Fourier Transform pair by Warp Patch for Quartz Composer Intended primarily for fulldome projection using a spherical mirrorAlso used as a navigable movie playerModelled after the warpplayer application Written by Christopher Wright @ Kineme Design by Paul Bourke The Quartz Composer patch discussed here warps an image (or movie) in an arbitrary way as specified by a user generated mesh stored in a simple text file. There are many potential applications for this but the motivation for this capability arose from a very precise requirement, namely the warping of images for projection into immersive spaces by using a projector and a spherical mirror.

TUIO-Client Plugin for Quartz Composer: Lion 64-bit compile Tonight I made a 64-bit compile of the TUIO-Client Plugin for Quartz Composer. I messed around with the Kinect-Plugin for Quartz Composer and discovered the TUIO-multitouch and gesture protocol, which looks really promising. The protocol support really a lot of common creative coding software. The binary of the TUIO-Client Plugin for Quartz Composer I downloaded from the TUIO-site did not launch in my Quartz Composer on OS-X Lion. The problem actually seems, that it was compiled for an older version of Mac OSX and Quartz had problems in actually loading and/or finding the path.
