Grey, a new and beautiful pattern by Nicolas Sassoon.
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.
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.
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.
