Inner Doubts .com, Rafaël Rozendaal‘s latest piece. Not that it really matters, but is this Rafaël’s first HTML/Paper.js work?

Drawing Apparatus

March 27th, 2012

The “Drawing Apparatus” is probably one of the more simplistic drawing machines I’ve ever posted here, but that doesn’t mean that it’s outcome is less interesting. A great project by Robert Howsare.

Prismatica” is a new piece by Kit Webster. He attached pyramid-shaped crystals to an LCD screen and made a programmed geometric animation precisely mapped to the vertices of the crystals, illuminating them individually and in formation. The animations are further refracted through the geometry of the crystals in accordance with the shifting perspective of the observer, which in turn alters the way the illuminations appear and interact with reflections of surrounding lights within the space.

Air Vases

January 24th, 2012

The Japanese studio Torafu Architects designed 2 new versions of their air vases: Gradation and Cube. Those 2 patterns are printed on both sides of paper disks, which are cut so the user can simply pull them into the desired shape. They don’t much function but they look nice.

Lumenoise is a light pen, which turns your old CRT-TV into an audiovisual synthesizer, made by Niklas Roy.

You paint abstract geometric patterns and sounds directly onto the screen. It is a playful and performative device, as anything that you do will cause an instantaneous reflection in the gadget’s sonic and visual output.

Just watch the video below, the grey square is the position of the light pen.

Niklas actually gave me an early version of the Lumenoise. The battery and the circuit were not yet inside the pen, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s  funny to play with. The simplicity of the this technology is really amazing.

Undef Printer

August 29th, 2011

Here’s an other receipt printer project by undef: undef printer. This time you can decide what it should print, well actually you will have to write some simple code to do so. I’ve made variation of my TT pattern, which I did for the Pa++ern project 2 years ago. Anyway, you can try it out till October 8th, it is part of the “Tra me e ciò che è in me” exhibition in Grono, Switzerland.

Here’s my “code”, I guess there’s a smarter way to achieve my pattern.

A few months ago, Nicolas Sassoon made an architectural proposal for the online art collective Computers Club. I already liked it back then, but he produced and released an altered version, in just black and white, for ”STREET SHOW: The Things Between US”. Watch it in HD!
Soundtrack by Sara Ludy.

Island Study

July 19th, 2011

I just love Nicolas Sassoon his animated gif style. The rotating 3D objects with their pattern shading … truly nice. His created “Island Study” for a benefit compilation for Japan.
