It’s that time of the year when we slowly begin wrapping up the 2012. Before we say goodbye, take a short but well deserved break, lets take a quick moment to look back at some of the best and most memorable projects of 2012. Like last year, there is no mechanism in deciding these and neither-nor all projects here are spectacular and magnificent but instead they may offer a brief view into what lies ahead.
Without further ado…
Created by Christophe Guberan (ECAL), this inkjet printer prints patterns that contort pieces of paper into specific 3D forms. Christophe modified a printer to use a mixture of water and ink in the cartridge which causes the paper to fold along wet lines and humid areas forming very interesting geometries. Read more..
The Product was commissioned by Volkswagen to develop a set of visuals for an interactive musical performance for the premiere of the New Beetle at the 2011 IAA motor show. What the client got instead was Soundmachines – a custom-built instrument for performing electronic music by DJing visual patterns on record-sized discs. Read more..
Created by Waldek Węgrzyn at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, Poland, “Electrolibrary” is a project that connects a custom made paper book to the computer, so it can be used as an an interface. The book can be browsed as any other regular book but when connected to the computer via USB, by turning pages, you can navigate through the website, getting additional information, quotations, movies and animations appropriate to the currently open page.

Directed by Evan Boehm at Nexus Interactive Arts and commissioned by The Creators Project, The Carp and the Seagull is an interactive short film about one man’s encounter with the spirit world and his fall from grace. It is a user driven narrative that tells a single story through the prism of two connected spaces. The project is an experiment in space and narrative using 3D character modelling, rigging and animation with HTML5 and WebGL. Read more..
6. Lotus Dome
The City of Lille (FR) commissioned Daan Roosegaarde to build Lotus Dome, a living aluminum foil structure that ‘blooms’ in response to touch and warmth. A “futuristic view on the Renaissance”, Lotus Dome merges elements of architecture and nature into an interactive experience. Or, as the artist often refers to his work, “techno-poetry” Read more..
Created by London’s digital art and design collective Field, Energy Flow is a non-linear film experience created for the iOS and Android platforms that explores the physical, social and spiritual tensions in our world. The film is composed of multiple story lines into an immersive, audio-visual experience that is unique every time it is played. Marcus’ and Vera’s one year long project is now finally available. Read more..
Now in its 22nd year, the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase hit Cannes again, unveiling another presentation of the new directorial talent. Marshmallow Laser Feast (Robin McNicholas, Memo Akten and Barnaby Steel) were the creative and technical directors of the production which included a theatrical performance by 16 flying robots reflecting light beams on the stage. CAN got the all the details on how this mesmerising performance came into being. Read more..
If a picture says more than a thousand words – and current internet dynamics tend to agree – what would a visual guide to the English vocabulary, contemporary and ‘webresentative’, look like? Ben West and Felix Heyes, two artists and designers from London (UK), found out when they replaced the 21,000 words found in your everyday dictionary with whatever shows up first for each word in Google’s image search. Behold Google – a 1240 page behemoth of JPGs, GIFs and PNGs in alphabetical order. Read more..
The Superstitious Fund Project is a trading algorithm that operates Superstitiously designed by Shing Tat Chung, a student of Design Interactions at the RCA. It is is a live experiment in which an algorithm trades based on superstitious beliefs. Shing designed the autonomous algorithm to make decisions based on lunar cycles and numerology. It is also programmed to develop its own form of superstitious logic, creating lucky and unlucky values that influence its behaviour. 144 people from around the world have already invested a total of £4828.88 in the fund, which will return the resulting balance back to its investors in a year’s time. Read more..
Not to be confused with a product, Free Universal Construction Kit is a disruption, not aimed at kids, but at the society — especially pundits, say the project’s authors. Free Universal Construction Kit is a matrix of nearly 80 adapter bricks that enable complete interoperability between ten popular children’s construction toys. Read more..

- Best iPhone and iPad Projects of 2011 Another year of iPhone/iPad development but there haven't been many apps that have caught our eye as there have been in the past. Nevertheless few that stood above the rest, both in their conception and how they make us think about technology. As an increasing number of apps saturate the AppStore, now in their 100s of thousands, we'd like to remain optimistic that this platform will continue to grow and not just by large development studios and those that reiterate but rather as an exciting, creative and above all - "innovative" place to push ideas to. 10. Composite [iPad, openFrameworks] Inspired by the neo-dadaist collages of Robert Rauschenberg, James Alliban's Composite allows you to remix your surroundings to create graphic compositions. Users can paint pictures using live video stream by simply pointing their iPad towards your subject drawing over it. Pixels are captured and transfered onto canvas. A different way of looking at painting. -- 9. Photo/Nykto [iPad, openFrameworks, Games] Photo/Nykto is an experimental game conceived by Annelore Schneider and Douglas Edric Stanley as part of the “Unterplay” project at the Master Media Design —HEAD, Genève. Edric describes at as a game for nyktophobes and photophobes. It is played by switching on and off the lights in order to avoid reaching the edge of the screen. Photo/Nykto is one of the few apps that explores interaction with the device beyond the device itself. We like to think of it as "spatial interface" one that allows iPad to become an aggregator of physical activity. Soon in the AppStore -- 8. Planetary [Cinder, iPad] Created by the collective consisting of Ben Cerveny, Tom Carden, Jesper Sparre Andersen and Robert Hodgin, Planetary by Bloom is a way to explore your music collection using planetary system. Application, created using Cinder framework allows you to navigate dynamically created by information about the music on your iPad. Fly thorough the stars that represent your favourite artists, visit planets (albums) or listen to the moons (tracks). -- 7. Windosill [iPad, Games] Previously available for Mac and Windows, we are glad to see Windosill by Patrick Smith (Vectorpark.com) finally make it's way to the iOS. An adventure puzzle game filled with peculiar objects, your task is to resolve abstract but yet logical puzzles to progress from room to room. For fans of the original, this is not just a simple port. The Windosill for the iPad was built as a native iOS app and customized the behavior of every element to the iPad’s touch interface. Bonus features include a sketchbook gallery of concept and development artwork, the option to instantly skip to any room you’ve already completed and two special settings, unlocked when you complete Windosill: Complex Gravity, which allows you to manipulate objects by tipping your iPad, and See-Thru Mode, which makes everything translucent (giving you a sneak-peek into how Windosill is put together). Fantastic addition to the AppStore. -- 6. OscilloScoop [iPhone, iPad, Sound] Created by Scott Snibbe and Graham McDermott and originally designed by Lukas Girling, “OscilloScoop” is a culmination of about 15 years’ effort trying to create musical creation tools that is more like a video game. The process began back in the 90′s at a research lab when Scott Snibbe and Lukas Girling worked briefly with Brian Eno and Laurie Anderson on some of the concepts. The app, playfully called OscilloScoop, presents a trio of brightly colored stacked spinning crowns. Touching a crown trims or builds up its edge, like a spinning disk of clay. As you carve into this disc, the music changes, and you effortlessly produce hip hop, techno, electro, and other recognisable forms of music. Scott Snibble describes the process much like a DJ spinning records, but you create original music of your own, rather than merely cutting between tracks. -- 5. The Infinite Adventure Machine [MaxMSP, iPad] The Infinite Adventure Machine by David Benqué is a computer program which generates fairy-tale plots. Based on the work of Vladimir Propp, who reduced the structure of russian folk-tales to 31 basic functions, the project addresses the difficulties of automatic story generation which David explains remain an unsolved problem for computer science. Not available - Prototype -- 4. field [iPhone, iPad, openFrameworks, Sound] Created by Rainer Kohlberger with sound by Wilm Thoben, field is an abstract audiovisual app that uses realtime camera feed as input. Brightness, saturation and color are interpreted, and translated into a constructed grid. The realtime image triggers different sounds as you pan around. Included are five different modes which you can switch through by double tapping the screen. Very addictive and playful take on live video as medium to generate both visual and sound patterns. -- 3. Last Clock [iPad] Originally created in 2002 by Jussi Ängeslevä and Ross Cooper when at the Royal College of Arts in London and developed for the iOS by NewMediology (Danqing Shi), Last clock is a clock app that uses popular slit scan technique to keep you in factual time, human time and remote time. Just like any other analog clock, the app has three hands: one for seconds, minutes and hours. The hands, however, are made of a slice of live video that gets scanned to the clockface. With different refresh rate for the three hands, the three time circles reflect the rhythms of the space at different temporal resolutions. The app also allows you to stream the last clock camera feed over the internet. -- 2. Sword & Sworcery EP [Games, iPhone, iPad] The long awaited “21st century interpretation of the archetypical old school videogame adventure” by Superbrothers finally hit the AppStore this year. The response was amazing quickly became one of the most popular games of the year. If you haven't had a chance to play with it, xmas break seems like a perfect opportunity. Easily the best iOS game this year. -- 1. Björk – Biophilia [iPhone, iPad, Sound] Having seen many apps over the last few years, I don't think anyone expected Biophilia. If you don't know about it, is an iPhone/iPad release of Björk’s latest album created in collaboration with Scott Snibbe and her longtime design collaborators M/M (Paris). Comprising a suite of musical pieces and interactive artworks, Biophilia is a unique experience where different elements are weaved together with both sensitivity and precision. The experience is unified, building on different layers of visuals and sound. It's a simple must! (Read also our special Making-of […]

- Written Images [News] Written Images is looking for artists, designers and developers who would like to provide a self-made, generative image-creating application for a book. Artists, designers and developers are encouraged to program image creating applications, which will be published as four-page spreads in the book. These programs visualize internet data-streams or display self-generated content. They are able to save continuously changing images on demand. Every application will run through an auto-generative printing program which generates and compiles all images and metatexts into a printable book. The letterpress printing will be donedigitally due to continuously changing data. The final result will be an unique art book; a fusion of various digital artworks in printed form. deadline June 30, 2010 The volume of the book will be limited. Therefore, the number of published works cannot exceed a total amount, which will be evaluated and selected by a jury. Each featured authors will get one book from the first definitive edition. To take part, visit http://writtenimages.net or follow on Twitter for latest info. The project is Diploma thesis of Martin Fuchs […]
- 5 Twitter Art Projects – Volume 3 [WebApp] Nearly 4 months since our last post on Twitter Art Projects but this time we have collected more diverse than ever collection of art installations/web projects that utilize twitter in a very unique way. From radio controlled cars to hand drawings these show that there is much more to twitter than what some may have had for breakfast - definetly a reflection on our group consciousness.. (vol 1). If you missed the previous editions, check out: Volume 1 + Volume 2 Hard Drivin Hard Drivin’ is a kinetic installation created by Ivan Twohig, Benjamin Gaulon and Brian Solon. The title of the piece references Hard Drivin’ a video game released in 1989. The game featured the first 3D polygon driving environment. The installation involves radio controlled (R/C) cars that physically react to short messages (‘tweets’) sent through the popular social networking site Twitter. The cars are placed on a 3d-like structure inspired by polygonal modeling. Anyone can participate by telling the cars to begin following another user, by sending a simple command inside a tweet. You can get the cars to start following a user, by sending a reply to @harddrivin, e.g.: @harddrivin follow @exchangedublin Then every time that user tweets, one of the cars will move in a random direction. More info @ http://harddrivin.com + see this Flickr Set for more images. Default to Public "Default to Public" is a project by Jens Wunderling dealing with the discrepancy between people's feeling of privacy on the web and the physical world. It consists of an ongoing series of objects and interventions linking the physical world to the online world in unexpected and narrative ways to create awareness for self-exposure. Currently there are three projects, Status Panel, TweetScreen and Tweetleak with another two still under wraps named Classified Tweets and Tweetcast. Status Panel enhances the well known interface - the doorbell providing a small LCD panel displaying one's twitter status along with the name. Additionally the status panel has it's own Twitter Account and then the button is pressed it re-tweets one's current tweet. Tweetscreen is a networked projection/installation in public space showing tweets which have been written near it's own physical location on a large projection screen. The twitter users whose tweets have been chosen receive a reply message aling with the photo taken by a webcam. Tweetleak is a monolithic anthracithe-coloured pole which is placed in a public place aggregating tweets from nearby and "materialises them". After the tweet has been printed out the author is notified. All works follow a simple, yet powerful principle: Information from the twitter network (standing for information on the web) are displayed in another public environment, the documentation of this process is fed back into the digital public sphere and the authors of the information are notified of that abduction. Two public spheres are temporarily linked, creating repercussions of communication in the digital public sphere, which seems to be regarded as less public than the physical world, although it has a far wider reach than classic media, plus it never expires or is written over. More information at defaulttopublic.net Tweeting Colors Tweeting Colors is webpage comprised of vertical color bars created by special tweets from Twitter users. New bars are added from the left, pushing the existing arrangement to the right. A project by A Feverish Dream, this piece allows the audience to directly manipulate the resulting visual. Anyone can view the piece, but a Twitter user can add bars by following these simple directions. The page auto-refreshes a few times a minute, so sit back and enjoy the Color Feed. To participate in Tweeting Colors, simply post a tweet containing the following three elements: #afd (This is a tag acting as a filter. The "afd" stands for A Feverish Dream) a color name from the HTML color chart below. It is not case-sensitive, so you can use all caps or all lowercase. a number between 1 and 20, inclusive. This determines the width of the vertical band of color you're creating. Your tweet should show up in the Color Feed within a minute. Examples of acceptable tweets: #afd DARKRED 4 or deeppink 18 #afd or you can simply work these tags into a normal post: Cleaning out the blue garage today #afd 8 See more at tweetingcolors.com UTV UTV is the transposition of our Internet identities from Twitter feeds to an over-the-air TV broadcast. UTV is part of an exhibition entitled "Ill Communication" by Rob Duarte, which examines the role of technology in our understandings of community and communication. The format of the exhibition is such that each of the participating artists presents a work that spans two halves of the gallery space - an "interface" and an "output". Interface The UTV installation begins with an open presentation of the technology behind the television broadcast. A laptop computer connects to a display, which shows the real-time workings of the scripts and patches that gather Twitter feeds from people in the Chicago area. A camcorder then converts the image into a ready-for-TV signal and finally leads to a UHF transmitter that broadcasts the content to any television sets in the area. The corkboard above this makeshift TV station contains my notes, sketches and observations about the technical process, comparisons between the sociopolitical histories of Internet and broadcast TV media, and the re-appropriation of the obsolete medium of analog TV for the purposes of broadcasting local community-produced content. Output In the second half of the gallery, a pile of TVs and their rabbit-ear antennae are tuned to UHF channel 14½ to receive the reconfigured broadcast. The commentaries and mini-monologues from the once-digital medium scroll past the TV screens at varying speeds. The translation of this content to the fuzzy world of analog TV happens as the medium reaches the final stage of its gradual appropriation for purely commercial purposes. When it is discontinued this year, its final remains will be sold to private corporations and its demise as a medium for geographically relevant, freely available, community-driven content will be complete. UTV is an effort to filter "local" content from the world-wide medium of the Internet and funnel it back into the communication void that will exist during the final days of analog TV and beyond. This project also serves to expose this sociopolitical history of analog broadcasting and compare it to the power struggles that the Internet has and will face in the future. More about Rob and his other work can be found at robduarte.com Twitter Drawings On February 19th, 2009, Marc Horowitz posted this “tweet” on twitter.com (see first image below). Each of the 100 original drawings were mailed out to the first 100 respondents after the entire collection was put on display at Postmasters Gallery in New York as part of the exhibition “The future is not what it used to be” from February 28th - April 4th, 2009.

- openFrameworks 006 [News] Version 006 of openFrameworks has been released. Some of the additions include the Poco library, an event system, abstracted the window system, interestingly the updated the core to be iPhone friendly, plus bug fixes and lots of cool new stuff..... openFrameworks is a C++ library for creative coding. Used by media and visual artists, OF provides a creative environment for artists to develop interaction applications. It's great to see the latest updates to the iPhone support. You can now more easily port OF applications to xCode, allowing publishing to the AppStore.Â There are already several apps in the App Store that are made with openFrameworks. Here is what is included in the latest release: Poco: We are very excited to add the Poco library to the openFrameworks project. Poco is a powerful cross platform toolkit similar to the Java SDK, it includes a large base of network, file io, event and threading related code. It can be used to upload files and even send emails! In 006 we are using it for the new event system, but others have already been using it for developing addons like ofxHttpUtils. A big thanks to Erik SjÃ¶din for pushing us in this direction as well as for his awesome Firmata implementation which is now part of the core. Events: The event system in 006 allows classes to register to receive core events (like mouse pressed, key pressed, draw, update etc). It also allows you to create and register your own custom events. The event system took a long time to get right. A huge thanks to Stefan Hechenberger who along with Arturo Castro spent many hours working on getting the right balance for the OF event system. Glut abstraction: Another big and much requested change was to remove OF's dependence on the GLUT windowing toolkit. With 006 you can now chose which type of windowing system you want when you build your app. So far we have successfully run OF with a GLFW windowing system, an iPhone window and even no window (ie command line). Base classes: 006 now has base classes (like ofDraws, ofUpdates ) which allow for more flexible object orientated programming. One more thing...... iPhone support: OF 006 can run on the iPhone! This is largely due to the amazing work done by Lee Byron, Zach Gage, Memo Atken and Damian Stewart. Who have worked very hard to get openFrameworks running on the iPhone. A big shout out to them for their hard work! The iPhone support is an ongoing process but most of the core functionality is there, including loading images, loading fonts, drawing graphics... There will soon be some guides on the wiki for getting started with OF on the iPhone but in the meantime check the 006 iPhone download on the downloads page and these guides bellow: http://www.memo.tv/ofxiphone http://www.jeffcrouse.info/uncategorized/openframeworks-on-iphone/ Detailed list of the changes here: http://www.openframeworks.cc/changelog-v006 Download 006 here: http://www.openframeworks.cc/download For more information on openFrameworks visit the OF […]
