Blind Self Portrait Machine

June 4th, 2012

“Blind Self Portrait Machine” is collaboration between Kyle McDonald and Matt Mets. They’ve build a machine which can help you draw your own self portrait.

While the visitor keeps their eyes shut, a moving platform guides a pen in their hand to draw a self-portrait, using computer vision to track their face and generate a line drawing. The result is a machine-aided drawing, a self-portrait you could never draw.

GIF Psychedelica

January 4th, 2012

It’s been a while since I’ve posted some animated GIF’s, but these ones by Yoshi Sodeoka are … psychedelic. I was actually surprised that I didn’t post anything else from his portfolio before. It’s packed with visual stimuli.
Here’re my 3 favorites from his GIF Psychedelica series.

Paysages

Pierre Commenge aka Emoc wrote a Processing app to transform photographs into these very painterly, knitted pictures. Of course he isn’t the first one to do something like this, but you have to admit that the outcome of his code is very nice.

Squeal

June 19th, 2011

The Hong Kong musician/producer/composer Gaybird Leung asked Henry Chu to create a music app for his show Digital Hug. He wanted an instrument that could respond to body gesture like a theremin. So Henry developed Squeal which is based on his other app SoundGyro. With Squeal you’ll be able to trigger sounds by tapping on the eyes, nose, and cheeks of a face. And if you tilt the iPad you’ll be able switch between 3 octaves. The app will be available in the app store from July on, but you can still submit your own portrait to be part of it.

Receipt Racer is a microproject by undef and Joshua Noble. It a simple game which they developed during the “Let’s feed the future workshop”, part of the OFFF Festival in Barcelona on June 8th 2011.

3 Dreams of Black

May 13th, 2011

3 Dreams of Black” is a new interactive film directed by Chris Milk for the song “Black” by ROME, a music project by Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi featuring Jack White & Norah Jones. The project is a Chrome Experiment that showcases some of the latest web technologies like WebGL in modern browsers like Google Chrome.
Not only can you interact with video, you can also add your own items to the dream or see what others have build. For those of you who want to know the technical details: this page will keep you busy for a while. The model view and the demos are just as impressive.
Aaron Koblin was the creative director of this project and Mr.doob the technical director and of course a bunch of really talented people. You might also want to check out “The Wilderness Downtown“, a project with many people who were also involved in this one.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been that blown away by a web technology. So if you have the latest version of Google Chrome installed and a pretty decent graphicscard, go ahead and be …

Quadratura

Of all the video projection on architecture projects out there, I still like Pablo Valbuena his best. One of his latest projects is called Quadratura, a site-specific installation presented at Matadero Madrid, Spain. Quadratura was the technique used in the baroque to extended architecture through trompe l’oeil and perspective constructions generated with paint or sculpture.
