Reblogged Mes-etoiles

wall.jpg Mes-etoiles (My stars) is an interactive wall that responds to the proximity of people, and provides feedback in the form of light. This means that users are able to use their bodies to draw with the light. The wall consists of numerous squares that each holds a collection of white lights. When a person stands in front of the wall, his or her silhouette will activate the corresponding square of light. Movements will produce dynamic drawings and because of the built-in delay it’s possible for one person to create rather large images.

The developers mention various uses of the wall such as users being able to express themselves, to play, to communicate or to make collective creations. The wall might also break the psychological barriers that appear between the people sharing a given space. Check out the video. There are two more videos and a lot of pictures on the wall’s website.

KNIF.HAND.CHOP.BOT

knifehandbot.jpg5VOLTCORE premiered a self-fulfilling cybernetic system that played with the senses and perceptions of the User and the sensors and the processes of the Machine for DEAF07. The Robot is equipped with a knife that the Machine uses to s(t)imulate the test of courage – a kind of game known as Mumblety-Peg. The User puts his hand into the Machine and starts the knife game at the push of a button. The knife starts to hit the space between the fingers, first slowly then continually getting faster. The Machine knows where to chop by receiving signals of a sensor that guides the knife to the place between the fingers. Continue reading

Teleshadow

_44046079_shadowyasuda203.jpg“Shadows are being used by Japanese researchers as an non-intrusive way for friends to stay in touch. Called Teleshadow the system pipes video of what people are doing at home via the net to their friends’ houses. But instead of showing images in full motion and colour, Teleshadow turns them into shadow outlines projected on the inside of a small decorative lamp. Creator Shunpei Yasuda said the shadow presence system aims to fill the gap between live video and static images.

Mr Yasuda, a post-graduate student in Media Design at Japan’s Keio University, said the inspiration for the system came from Japanese history. For many years, he said, Japanese homes have had Shoji or paper walls that divide some rooms. The thin walls preserve some privacy but the shadows cast on the paper as people move about also act as a reminder of that person’s presence…” Continue reading Shadow lamps to connect friends by Mark Ward, BBC News.

On Everything (on) CodeChat

oneverything.jpgOn Everything by Pall Thayer – “I’ve set up another CodeChat page for the visualization applet for my piece On Everything. Setup and installation took all of about 1.5 minutes following the installation guide that comes with CodeChat’s source. I hope that others here who are creating code-based artwork will also use the CodeChat system to open-source and generate theoretical discussion for their own code.

On Everything generates a real-time audio/visual presentation of everything by appropriating material being shared by the worldwide public in the form of shared images and diaries. The source material is endless, thus the work goes on forever. Material is synthesized, mixed and, ultimately, abstracted, to allow for varied interpretation. “On Everything” knows nothing of the content of these materials. It reflects everything while reflecting on nothing. That is up to the viewer.
