Created by Seoul based media arts group Jonpasang, Hyper-Matrix is an installation created for the Hyundai Motor Group Exhibition Pavilion in Korea, the 2012 Yeosu EXPO site. The installation comprises a specially made steel construction to support thousands of stepper motors that control 300x300mm cubes that project out of the internal facade of the building.
Lightweight blocks move in and out of the facade, creating infiniti number of possibilities in the vertical, 180 degree, landscape. The audience is part of the pattern shaping performance as thousands of cubes move with the sounds. Pixel waves sweep the space, ripples emit from the centre and just in case this is not enough, projection mapping takes care of the rest. See videos for more.
Jonpasang collective includes Jin-Yo Mok, Sookyun Yang, Earl Park, Jin-Wook Yeo and Sang-Wook Yu.

- N Building.app [iPhone] N Building is a commercial structure located near Tachikawa station amidst a shopping district. The team at Qosmo working together with teradadesign architecture studio thought of using QR Code (two-dimensional bar code) as the facade of the building. By reading the QR Code with your mobile device you can obtain up to date shop information but the fun doesn't end there. Using the iPhone with specially developed application you can see what is happening inside the building with people's comments made on online appearing in speech bubbles. You can also browse shop information, make reservations and download coupons (see video). The building is detected in real time by its shape. Characters are then superimposed over the live video. Twitter feed comments are located via GPS tagging. Store information, reservations and other infrastructure is part of the iPhone application. The iPhone application is not for sale in the iTunes App Store, but is available to interested parties on request. The project is a collaboration between teradadesign + Qosmo. For more information see this post by Nao Tokui, CEO of Qosmo Inc. (Thanks […]
- Fire with Fire (2010) [Inspiration] Fire with Fire is the latest installation by Isabelle Hayeur, a Montreal-based artist working in the fields related to landscape design and architecture. The installation is located at the Downtown Eastside, the oldest neighbourhood in Vancouver in attempt to recall troubled period of Vancouver’s history reminding also of lives lost by the years of homeless, drug use, street prostitution and violence in this area. This historic area is infamous for being plagued by social problems due to poverty. Before falling prey to serious urban decay, it has known brighter days, and was even the city’s business hub until the 1980s. Derelict for over twenty years, in more recent ones, it has started to be sought after again. The Downtown Eastside is undergoing a major mutation —witness the newly renovated buildings and the constructions sites that now dot the area. read more.. Fire with Fire has been commissioned by The Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad. Curator : Marlene Madison. Video projection of 15 minutes playing in continuous loop. 3 Blu-ray players, 3 video […]
- Lights On [openFrameworks] Leading on from just posted oFÂ workshop in London, comes Lights On installationÂ for the Ars Electronica museum in Linz, Austria.Â The visuals have been coded in openframeworks by Zachary Lieberman, Joel Gethin Lewis and Damian Stewart (yesyesno), music is by Daito Manabe, with support from Taeji Sawai and Kyoko Koyama. Building'sÂ facade contains 1085 LED controllable windowsÂ with colors that change in realtime to music broadcasted on speakers surrounding the building. Interestingly, the project was put together in just three days!! The LED strips built into one side of 1,100 of the glass facadeâ€™s panels are 20-120 cm long. A stripâ€™s cross-section is 30 x 45 mm; each is studded with 20-48 high-output LEDs. The 40,000 diodes are split equally between red, green, blue and white. Soldered onto printed circuit boards, the individual LEDs are a 2.4 x 4.5 mm at their base and 2 mm high. Mounted on each diode is a special 22 x 22-mm lens that casts the light onto the glass panels. Each of the 1,100 LED strips can be individually controlled by an electronic unit that makes it possible to fine-tune brightness and the color mix (more on ledinside.com) You can find out about the project at few places: ledinside.com, ledfassaden.at, multi-vision.at and daito.ws.

- Patterned by Nature – Transparent pixels in the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences Some time ago Sosolimited and Plebian Design set out to create a large scale transparent LCD sculpture for a science museum atrium. Each pixel was designed as a piece of glass that could independently change the transparency of: from opaque black to transparent. The sculpture was designed to curve up through the atrium of the museum and display down-sampled patterns from nature, along with a high fidelity soundtrack. Almost two years later, its wonderful to see this project finally come to life. "Patterned by Nature" was commissioned by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences for the newly built Nature Research Center in Raleigh, North Carolina. The exhibit celebrates our abstraction of nature’s infinite complexity into patterns through the scientific process, and through our perceptions. It brings to light the similarity of patterns in our universe, across all scales of space and time. The 90’x10’ “ribbon” winds through the five story atrium of the museum and is made of 3600 tiles of LCD glass. It runs on roughly 75 watts, less power than a laptop computer. Animations are created by independently varying the transparency of each piece of glass. The content cycles through twenty programs, ranging from clouds to rain drops to colonies of bacteria to flocking birds to geese to cuttlefish skin to pulsating black holes. The animations were created through a combination of algorithmic software modeling of natural phenomena and compositing of actual footage. An eight channel soundtrack accompanies the animations on the ribbon, giving visitors clues to the identity of the pixelated movements. In addition, two screens show high resolution imagery and text revealing the content on the ribbon at any moment. Patterned by Nature was created by Plebian Design, Hypersonic Design & Engineering, and […]
- Link [openFrameworks, iPad, Flash, vvvv] Building on their previous installation at Coffee Kitchen, Kimchi and Chips created 'Link', their latest interactive installation for Design Korea 2010 where people record their stories into a cityscape of cardboard boxes. Link was created for the event as an interpretation of 'Convergence', the theme of the exhibition. The team presented a convergence of complex, fast moving technologies with low, everyday materials. Furthermore, the audience is invited to take part and "can store their memories inside boxes". The installation includes a number of different components. To match the projections to the boxes, the team developed iPad mapping application allowing users to interactively match projected images in the room. App was built using openFrameworks and libmysql (see video demo at the bottom of the post). The iPad interface, allowing users to add information was also built using built using openFrameworks with 2-way communication over OSC. Main mapping playback was created using VVVV with custom plugins for threaded video playback / recording (up to 80 videos playing simultaneously whilst 2 videos being recorded), MySQL for database and a total of around 3000 recordings were taken during the exhibition. The team also used Adobe Flash for designing animations. Hardware included 3 servers, each Core i7 Quad core (8 threads), Nvidia Geforce 460 GTX, 8GB RAM (for caching video playback), Triplehead2Go x 2, 2xPlaystation eye and 6 x 3000lm projector. See video below including the making of at the bottom of the post. Project Page Kimchi and Chips are a cross-disciplinary art & design studio based in London and Seoul. They create installations, products and services that bridge the gap between people and people, people and technology, people and nature. They are Elliot Woods, media artist, technical designer and Mimi Son, user-centred interaction designer and visual […]
- Fragments in Space – Olivier Ratsi’s White Roads in the Red Matrix File this one under better late than never: Olivier Ratsi's White Roads in the Red Matrix (Deconstruction Time, Again project) was one of the cleverest installations CAN encountered at the International Digital Arts Biennial (BIAN) in Montreal several weeks ago. Appearing as part of the Out of the Blue/Into the Black exhibition of French media artists, Ratsi's installation was comprised of a field of plexiglass and aluminium LED frames suspended in space on to which video was projected. This is one of those pieces that video documentation simply does not do justice to as an encounter with this architectonic constellation of surfaces plays out as sculptural choreography – a careful coordination of light and rhythm. The BIAN program described the performative arrangement as "a digital audiovisual object" that restlessly phases in and out of legibility. Project created by Olivier Ratsi (AntiVJ) | flickr photoset Sound design: Thomas Vaquié Realisation: Julien Guinard Development: Anthony […]
