Created by Saurabh Datta, border_ctrl explores future government agency, created to keep tabs of internet browsing of individuals. To keep a healthy control of one’s online activities, Internet Border Control[IBC] runs a daemon on individual’s computers.
In the final week of the last year’s fall 10-week program at the School for Poetic Computation (SFPC), students presented their work in progress and its underly ideas in a public showcase. Here is a selection of projects that were presented.
Created as a collaboration between Hypersonic and Plebian Design, Constructive Interference is a sculpture designed to engage passer-bys using the wonder of moire patterns. Installation is composed of two large patterned sheets of steel, designed to create a rapidly changing visual interference effect as viewers pass by.
Our Time is the latest large-scale installation by United Visual Artists, investigating the subjective experience of the passing of time. The installation is comprised of 21 bespoke mechanical pendulums that swing at a pace apparently unhindered by the laws of nature and where no single time measurement applies.
Project explores narratives through colour, line, and form found in geographic satellite imagery. Utilising Google Earth together with custom software, the final install spans over 27 HD screens pointing locations of the films that have been produced by IFP.
Andreas Nicolas Fischer created a Python script that creates arrangements of intersecting digital sculptures in front of a “frozen” cloth simulation, similar to a traditional still life, but with no physical constraints.
Fracture.io allowed visitors to “enter the digital space”, taking 3D scans of pose-striking partygoers to generate beautifully abstracted, full body 3D renderings.
Vincent & Emily are two self-willed robots who are in a conflict between each other and their surroundings, designed to explore solitude of a partner relationship and their impulses.
Commissioned by the Greater London Authority as part of Wonder series that are celebrating Olympics and Paralympics, Bloom is designed and developed by Alisa Andrasek and Jose Sanchez from The Bartlett School of Architecture at UCL. Designed in neon pink (the official Olympics color), Bloom is conceptualized as an urban toy that seeks the engagement of […]
Plinko Poetry is a new interface for electronic poetic expression, by Inessah Selditz and Deqing Sun, two Master’s students at NYUs Interactive Telecommunications Program. The installation draws source text from current @nytimes and @FoxNews tweets and creates a new corpus of ever changing poetic text based on the zeitgeist of current headlines.
Created by Ben Cowell-Thomas, Lightplot is a robotic 3D light painting system. Animation is exported from 3DS Max, and imported into the Lightplot software which then drives a robotic arm to draw the models in the air. The software also controls a DSLR camera to take long exposure photographs of each frame of animation.
Created by Brandon Kruysman and Jonathan Proto, Hot Networks explores the complexities and opportunities in collaborative robotics. Using custom built software called esperant.O developed by Kruysman-Proto, Hot Networks is a collaboration of five industrial robot arms, with different tools and tasks, operating as one large network. Ideas of representation are embedded into the sequence, as well as material behaviour, […]
