Entropic System is a drawing machine that inscribes ornate geometric patterns into a bed of ‘black beauty’ sand. Made by the Denver-based media artist Laleh Mehran the device has instability built-in to it, and creates a feedback loop where approaching it affects its output.
Created by Flower/Fu Dongting, weave/wave is an interactive artwork that converts portraits of visitors into a particle field that is used to construct a mirror image, one of data and sound.
Created by the visual artist Palmer Eldritch aka Denial of Service, “Onryō” is the latest in the series of audio/video releases that combines tech-noir chaos with reaction-diffusion sequences created in Max/Jitter, courtesy of Paul Fennell.
Created by digital design studio NEOANALOG , “Particle Flow” is a physical installation comprised of granules driven by gravity and topography forming an analogue particle system. A moving slanted plane and a grid of motorized stamps control the elements to form infinite variations of behaviours and patterns.
Created by Studio Antimateria in collaboration with participating students at the workshop hosted by Presidio Temporaneo di Architettura, Shape in Scapes is an audiovisual installation that provides an abstract representation of students’ architectural projects.
Created by Bjørn Karmann at CIID, Objectifier empowers people to train objects in their daily environment to respond to their unique behaviours. Interacting with Objectifier is much like training a dog – you teach it only what you want it to care about. Just like a dog, it sees and understands its environment.
Created by Henning Marxen, Crossvision is a series of video art sequences of recognisable yet disorienting sceneries that combine the popular slit-scan capturing technique with a specially designed camera slider.
Wind of Boston: Data Paintings by Refik Anadol Studios is a site-specific installation that turns the invisible patterns of wind in and around Boston into a series of data paintings on a 1.8m x 4m digital canvas.
From the Digital Citizens Lab to making Processing more accessible – Lauren McCarthy, Los Angeles-based artist and Processing Foundation board member, surveys the work of the 2016 Processing fellows and sheds light on the Foundation’s 5-month fellowship program.
Created by Berlin based Ralf Baecker, Random Access Memory is a fully functional digital memory. Instead of operating on semi-conducting components to represent either the binary states of 0 (zero) or 1 (one), the memory uses grains of sand as storage material.
Created by Matthias Grund, Kadir Inan and Wookseob Jeong at the Köln International School of Design, >200 °C is imagined as a closed feedback system that combines computer vision with a poetic perspective of the physical occurrence called the Leidenfrost effect.
Created at the Köln International School of Design and supervised by Prof. Andreas Muxel, Feedback Machines is a short student project that explores the concept of feedback loops, as an attempt to introduce students to physical computing as well as provide a perspective on the complex topic through experimental explorations.
