We’ve seen libraries and schools put them to use to help students and parents. We’ve also seen them provide value to specific verticals such as real estate and healthcare.
This video was produced for the module “Digital Studio” at the Bartlett’s Adaptive Architecture and Computation Msc. An Android based phone sends OSC data to a processing sketch, controlling a “Manipulator” that interacts with a cloud of agents and modifies its configuration. The result is finally exported and rendered.
The power of a photograph has been diluted due to its ubiquity, resulting in audiences with shorter attention spans. Photographer Javier Lovera and installation artist Simon Rojas combine photography and video in a single image with two purposes: reveal and extend the viewers’ diminished attention span.
The eyes of the viewer (which are being read by a web cam installed within a completely modular and recyclable box) are projected in real time within the glasses’ negative space, making the spectator part of our piece. To do so, we are using Modul8, an iCam, and a Mac Mini to run the software.
