Openframeworks is a c++ library designed to assist the creative process by providing a simple and intuitive framework for experimentation. The library is designed to work as a general purpose glue, and wraps together several commonly used libraries under a tidy interface: openGL for graphics, rtAudio for audio input and output, freeType for fonts,freeImage for image input and output, quicktime for video playing and sequence grabbing. The code is written to be both cross platform (PC, Mac, Linux, iPhone) and cross compiler. The API is designed to be minimal and easy to grasp. There are very few classes, and inside of those classes, there are very few functions. The code has been implemented so that within the classes there are minimal cross-referening, making it quite easy to rip out and reuse, if you need, or to extend. More Info

Cube with Magic Ribbons by Simon Katan – oF and SuperCollider

The following clip is a preview Simon Katan’s new composition tool for live performance Cube with Magic Ribbons created using openFrameworks and SuperCollider. Simon describes the piece as partly drawing on the visual paradoxes of M.C.Escher but also being inspired by the impossible spaces found in the two dimensional graphics of early computer games such as Asteroids […]

Van Gogh’s Starry Night Interactive by Petros Vrellis [openFrameworks, iPad]

Petros Vrellis has created an interactive visualisation and synthesizer that animates Vincent Van Goghs “Starry Night”, using openframeworks to create a simple and elegant interaction. A fluid simulation gently creates a flowing fabric from Van Goghs impressionist portrait of the Milky Way and night sky over Saint-Rémy in France using the thick paint daubs as […]

Kinect RGB+Depth Filmmaking [openFrameworks]

Golan Levin was invited by the FITC conference to answer a series of “Ask Me Anything” questions posted by Reddit visitors. At the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, Golan’s video was created by Fellows James George and Jonathan Minard, artists-in-residence researching new forms of experimental 3D cinema. Their work explores the notion of “re-photography”, in which otherwise frozen moments in time may be visualized from new points of view.

All Eyes On You [openFrameworks, Javascript, Kinect, Arduino]

“All Eyes On You” by Britzpetermann are bunch of varied sized eyes that follow the passers-by. The team used a high quality projector and semi-matt foil to project the eyes on the window. They are rendered by a WebGL frontend using a shader sphere effect. The detection is performed by OpenFrameworks and the Kinect. An Arduino controlled […]
