It’s that time of the year when we take a week break and unplug from the internet. Before we step away, it is our duty to highlight some of the projects that we found to be the most memorable.
‘Type/Dynamics’ is a new interactive installation by LUST for the exhibition of work by the graphic designer Jurriaan Schrofer (1926-1990) at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
CAN goes in-depth with the Paris-based ‘anticipatory’ design studio N O R M A L S to learn about their forthcoming dark, dense, and dizzying graphic novel series. Working process, representational techniques (that bridge illustration and code), and a critical reading of contemporary design fiction.
The Raspberry Pi is a very exciting low cost computing platform aimed at the educational market. It offers reasonable performance in a small package at a price of $25, making it very attractive for creative computing projects. Here we show you how to run openFrameworks on the Raspberry Pi.
John Lennon: The Bermuda Tapes in an interactive Album App that tells the story of John Lennon’s life changing journey sailing through a mid-Atlantic storm to Bermuda in June 1980, the creative discovery during his time on the island and the artistic collaboration from abroad with wife Yoko Ono at home in New York.
inFORM is a Dynamic Shape Display that can render 3D content physically, so users can interact with digital information in a tangible way.
Hyperfeel is a series of four video artworks by FIELD produced for the launch of the Hyperfeel shoe for Nike. Animated in Houdini using procedural/generative processes, pieces capture “macro-textural, sensual aesthetic” – describing emotions of running on different terrains: on sand, grass, tarmac and trail.
Captives is an ongoing series of digital and physical sculptures by Quayola and a contemporary homage to Michelangelo’s unfinished series “Prigioni” (1513-1534) and his technique of “non-finito”.
In this tutorial we will show you how to create an application using Cinder that grabs photos from Instagram to create real-time animated kaleidoscopes. We’ll look at the technical details of the (simplified) version that is now included as a sample with Cinder (0.8.5+).
Benedikt Groß is a speculative and computational designer whose work is often featured on here on CAN. We recently interviewed him in order to glean a little insight about Benedikt’s thoughts his recent work, ‘outsider’ cartography, and generative strategies.
The Lego calendar is a wall mounted time planner made entirely of Lego, but if you take a photo of it with a smartphone, and thanks to openFrameworks and openCV all of the events and timings are synchronised to an online, digital calendar.
CAN gets a sneak peak of the new installation by Universal Everything opening this week at the new Media Space gallery at the Science Museum in London. We also speak to Mike Tucker about the project development, concepts and the ideas leading up to the final install.
