Murmur Murmur is an architectural prosthesis that enables the communication between passers-by and the wall upon which it is connected.The installation simulates the movement of sound waves, building a luminous bridge between the physical and the virtual worlds. There is a magical effect, a mystery in the way that sound waves move. Murmur focuses on this movement, thus creating an unconventional dialogue between the public and the wall. Collaboration Urban Archives Database Home » Urban Archives Database The Urban Archives project contributes to the body of knowledge on urban communication. Since 2004, University of Washington students have been documenting Seattle's streets and conducting original research using a variety of approaches and perspectives. Using photography, students carry out field research by capturing urban texts such as graffiti, public art, advertising, signage, and architectural design. Original photographs of urban texts are archived, annotated and shared with the community for further research and analysis. The documentation is ongoing as the project is expanding.
Keyfleas - Interactive augmented projection by Miles Peyton (@mlsptn) Created by Miles Peyton, first year student at the Carnegie Mellon University, Keyfleas is an experiment in interactive augmented projection. Inspired by the work of Chris Sugrue where light bugs crawl out of the screen and onto the viewer’s hand, Miles has used Processing and Box2D to create an augmented projection on the keyboard. As the user types, the “fleas” swarm around the pressed key, avoiding the letters. Miles describes the experience as “It’s okay if you feel something nibbling at your fingers.” Although I had several ideas for contexts in which an augmented projection could exist, most of them amounted to arbitrary particles careening across a surface. No poetry, no narrative.
This app turns your selfies into augmented reality GIFs The future isn't filtered, it's chaotic – at least, that's the premise behind to.be camera, a new app that launched earlier this month. Described as an "augmented reality camera", the free-to-download app lets you record video GIFs and layer colourful visual layers on top of the image. It's already built a steady following from its New York launchpad, where it was first conceived by internet collage community to.be, which has close connects with other digital collectives like DIS and #BeenTrill#. "We were missing tools to gather pieces from our physical surroundings – like pencils and stones that you might have laying on your desk, or drawings that you make on paper," to.be co-founder Nick Dangerfield told us.
Before I Die What matters most to you Interactive public art project that invites people to share their personal aspirations in public. After losing someone she loved and falling into depression, Chang created this experiment on an abandoned house in her neighborhood to create an anonymous place to help restore perspective and share intimately with her neighbors. The project gained global attention and thanks to passionate people around the world, over 1000 Before I Die walls have now been created in over 70 countries, including Kazakhstan, Iraq, Haiti, China, Ukraine, Portugal, Japan, Denmark, Argentina, and South Africa. The walls are an honest mess of the longing, pain, joy, insecurity, gratitude, fear, and wonder you find in every community, and they reimagine public spaces that nurture honesty, vulnerability, trust and understanding.
Karolina Sobecka Sniff is an interactive projection in a storefront window. As the viewer walks by the projection, his movements and gestures are tracked by a computer vision system. A CG dog follows the viewer, dynamically responds to his gestures and changes his behavior based on the state of engagement with the viewer. Sniff, simulating the visceral satisfaction of realityâ€™s responsiveness and dynamism, is also an exploration of engagement of two different planes of understanding, and of relationships created by bodyâ€™s presence in an environment. Dogâ€™s behavior externalizes the process of assessment, evaluation and testing we perform every time anything new enters in the scope of our experience. Sniff has us unwittingly enter into an exchange simply by following the basic instinct of stopping and looking at something that is paying attention to us.
20 awesome examples of street art If you still need a proof that art can be found anywhere, those awesome examples of great street art should convince you. All the Universe is Full of the Lives of Perfect Creatures In this interactive mirror, viewer’s movement and expressions are mimicked by an animal head which is overlaid on the viewer’s reflection. The resulting effect invites inquiry into issues of self-awareness, empathy and non-verbal communication. A different animal appears every time a person walks in front of the mirror. The animal not only mimics the viewerâ€™s facial features, but also occasionally makes its own, uniquely animal expressions. The viewer feels compelled to in turn enact such lip licking and snarling, fully inhabiting the role; following while being followed.
Simple Art Activity for kids that turns out to be brilliant » Playtivities So we are up for some art today. I came across some pictures of this artist’s work and I was really fascinated because it was so simple, genius and looked like my 5 year old would love to try it. His name is Javier Pérez and you can find him on Instagram where all the amazing art drawings are posted. We looked at his art and talked about how simple, yet beautiful it looks. Our favorite drawing was the child holding the balloons (which are actual grapes). To prepare for this art activity
