Paleodictyon Paleodictyon A project by Simon Geilfus, Yannick Jacquet and Thomas Vaquié Centre Pompidou Metz, France, October 6th 2012 Loosely inspired by the work and research of deep-sea expert Peter A. Rona, the piece abolishes notions of scale by contrasting micro-architecture with human construction. contes - dessins animés - jeux L'univers de Wismo Apps Livres Spectacle L'épisode du moment Contes
CRAFTING HUMAN PERCEPTION / EXHIBITION « Francesca Perona Interactive installation that explores new ways of extending the natural bandwidth of human perception through computational textiles and sensors. The piece creates an immersive enviroment in which visitors rediscover tactile experiences and body awareness. The visitors encounter two panels and two pairs of head-phones hanging from the ceiling. Each panel has a pair of sleeves. By wearing them, the visitors will perceive in real time the sound resulting from their contact with the surface and touch experience.
Animation clip-beautiful-RibA When Plants Jam with Synths: Leslie Garcia’s Open Project Lets Plants Talk with Sound Pulsu(m) Plantae _ project presentation from LessNullVoid on Vimeo. You may have seen a plant used as a musical instrument before, by measuring capacitance across the leafy life form and turning it into a touch sensor. This is something different: it’s letting the plant itself express communication through sound, using biofeedback to turn the living systems on the plant into something audible. It is a synth jam, made by a plant, that tells you something about what the plant is sensing about the world around it.
Un pequeño pájaro! alexandre burton Alexandre Burton's interest for new media technology stems from a desire to reveal new forms of expressivity through digital processes. Tightly integrating hardware and software, his artistic work is the result of attempts to think beyond media, in a realm where sound, images and processes cohabit and answer to each other in meaningfull ways. His work is regularily presented in international new media and music events. He was awared a first prize in Bourges for software design (with Jean Piché for Cecilia) and an honorable mention in Ars Electronica in Digital Music (with artificiel, for Bulbes) [txt] Morphogenetic Creations by Andy Lomas Created by a mathematician, digital artist and Emmy award winning supervisor of computer generated effects – Andy Lomas, Morphogenetic Creations is a collection of works that explore the nature of complex forms that can be produced by digital simulation of growth systems. These pieces start with a simple initial form which is incrementally developed over time by adding iterative layers of complexity to the structure. The aim is to create structures emergently: exploring generic similarities between many different forms in nature rather than recreating any particular organism. In the process he is exploring universal archetypal forms that can come from growth processes rather than top-down externally engineered design.
Variable 4 Variable 4 is an outdoor sound installation that translates weather conditions into musical patterns in real time. Using meteorological sensors connected to a custom software environment, the weather itself acts as conductor, navigating through a map of twenty-four specifically-written movements. Every aspect of the piece, from broad harmonic progressions down to individual notes and timbres, is influenced by changes in the environment: wind speed, rainfall, solar radiation, humidity, tropospheric variance, temperature, and more. The resultant composition is performed over an indeterminate duration through eight loudspeakers integrated into the landscape. More information Read more about Variable 4:
[Video] Jim Campbell's Sculptural LED Light Installations Even the Lumiére Brothers would glow over the work of artist and light engineer, Jim Campbell. The prolific pioneer of patchwork bulb-wiring's career spans three decades, and his work keeps on getting better—the artist's newest works have been called "consummate" and "transformative" by Art Daily after their debut this month at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery. It goes without saying that the mastery of his specific genre of low resolution re-imagings, communicated through programmed bulbs and LEDs, is a practice thirty years in the making. Good thing he's got a retrospective show coming up.
"SKIN" Transforms Your Emotions Into Sound And Color Through Sweat Data This week, Harvest Works gallery in New York exhibited an installation by audiovisual artist, Claudia Robles, that gets under your skin... literally. SKIN is a project that measures gallery visitors' skin moisture using a GSR (Galvanic Skin Response) interface and transforms that data into sound and images. Psychological states such as stress, nervousness, and even arousal become observable, external information. Be careful who you test it out around. "I'm interested in making the human body visual and audible," Robles told The Creators Project. "We normally don't hear or perceive our body, and this work is a way of making us aware of it and to enhance its potential as a visual and musical instrument."
