- Tripwire by J.M. Albert and A. Fure – A wall of strings in constant flux Tripwire (2011) is a kinetic installation by the French visual artist Jean-Michel Albert and American composer Ashley Fure. A vertical set of 18 (or 24) elastic strings – each individually motorized and controlled via MaxMSP/Jitter – is set into an undulating motion, creating a wall of geometrical apparitions in constant flux. Fixed to a massive frame (14m L, 4.5m H, 2,5m W) and immersed in projected lights and ghostly sounds the captivating, almost holographic display becomes a "complex, synthetic form that engages the eye, the ear and the body" (Fure's website). Visitors passing along the structure are tracked via infrared sensors at the base of the installation, their presence affecting the preprogrammed waveforms – an invitation "to manipulate, interrogate, and reflect upon the elasticity of time." (artist statement) Originally created for the 2011 Agora Festival (Paris) – then with 24 strings – and later shown at Nemó Festival (Paris) Tripwire will be on view at the upcoming International Digital Arts Biennial (BIAN) Montréal from May 2nd to June 2nd.

- data.anatomy [civic] by Ryoji Ikeda – Berlin – 19 April – 1st May data.anatomy [civic] is a new audiovisual installation by Ryoji Ikeda, arising from a unique collaboration with Mitsuru Kariya, the development leader of the new Honda Civic. Exhibited as a 3-screen video projection, data.anatomy [civic] immerses viewers in an intricate yet vast audiovisual composition derived from the entire data set of the car.

- rheo: 5 horizons [MaxMSP, Sound] Described as "one of the best audiovisual installations and a personal favourite of the prix ars electronica 2010" by Jonas Heuer, the rheo: 5 horizons is work by Ryoichi Kurokawa. The audio/visual piece has just won Golden Nicas prize in the Digital Musics & Sound Art category. First created back in 2009 utilising 3 screens in the form of Audiovisual concert (see images below), the new installation is a five screen extravaganza and a must see if you're making your way to the prix. Ryoichi Kurokawa’s new work ‘Rheo’ is a new form of audiovisual expression inspired by the constant flux of landscapes. Kurokawa tends to eliminate the boundaries of our physical perception. A minimal, yet chaotic conflux of visual and auditory perception merges into an experience of memory and ambiguity, where virtual and actual images are no longer distinguishable.

- PhotoBiennale – Sites [Processing, MaxMSP] Created by created by Beetroot, PhotoBiennale- Sites is a retrospective presentation of the Photobiennale Topos festival displaying 2330 works-sites by 266 photographers from 36 countries. Toogether with developing the visual identity for the festival, the team also installed an interactive table, inviting visitors to browse the works by using a physical bright green wooden frame element and positioning it over one of the 63 photographer names. When the visitor points at a specific presentation with the frame, a webcam installed at the top of the table, is watching the position of the frame and a Processing-Max/MSP/Jitter based software begins the slideshow of the presentation selected, projected in front of the table. This gesture responsive system is an interpretation of that massive amount of works, that groups them on an intelligent grid system, makes the visual contact with each work more feasible and attractive to any visitor. Installation was installed at the Photography Museum of Thessaloniki. For more work, see beetroot.gr + their […]

- Ivy Noise [MaxMSP] Founded in 2006, DDM & RobertoPugliese is collaboration between DDM Daniela Di Maro and Roberto Pugliese who live and work in Milan and Naples. DDM has a degree in "Visual Arts" 'Academy of Fine Arts of Naples and Roberto Pugliese graduated in Electronic Music at the Conservatorio San Pietro a Majella in Naples. "Their research is aimed at designing and producing microuniverses videosonori of visual oasis in which the individual can, albeit temporarily, to find a beneficial and relaxing with nature, always conveyed by the technological medium . The technological landscape meditation are caused by sound input on which are grafted in second place and formal, or vice versa. The result of this osmosis is the clumping pulse visual, auditory and tactile constantly challenging 's idea of two-dimensional work in favor of its all-encompassing and enveloping environment. " Mara De Falco Ivy Noise is an interactive installation comprising 87 speakers, 2 mics, 16 MP3 players, notebooks and MaxMSP software. Electric cables climb the walls inspired by the study on the growth of ivy. The growing black lines on white plaster imitate branches from which leaves grow, speakers of varying sizes. The speakers combine sounds of synthesis processes which emulate the sounds of natural origin where others reflect the presence of certain human activities. Two microphones pick up all noise which is sampled and processed by MaxMSP software applying random functions and played through the speakers. Voices, footsteps, movements, are the food of the installation, just as the ivy is a parasite and feeds on the host organism. The installation energy is nourished by the visitors.
