For the last month Victor Martins has been exploring what is possible with Microsoft Kinect by simulating cloth behaviour using Processing. It all started off with simple surface with plastic-type shader applied to it. These experiments quickly progressed to trying shadows and gamma correction control, tweeking parameters and finally rendering fur on top of cloth […]
Fluid Vase is an object designed by simulating fluid action. The aim was to translate actions commonly associated with an object into the object itself, which in this case is the action of pouring water into a vase. A high speed camera was used to capture actual water motion in vases of different shapes at 500 […]
Sketch Chair by Greg Saul is a exploration in using computation and rapid manufacturing techniques to allow users to design and build their own products or in this case their own chairs.

For the 26th edition of the Kassel Documentary Film and Video Festival, FIELD designed an identity based on the festival’s film submission database. Set in a thick and obscure forest like the wooded surroundings of Kassel, the colourful spheres form a sculptural representation of the programme – each of them represents a film, video, or […]
Created by Hiroshi Matoba, Overbug is a music-performance tool designed to compose Minimal and Dance Music. Through looping and newly arranging sound patterns, the program creates complex, polyrhythmic sounds. Overbug differs from conventional linear controlled music sequencers, which arrange the sound into a linear timeline from left to right. In Overbug is the sound arrangement […]
