Created by Jochen Maria Weber, Foxes Like Beacons is an exploratory project using open data of public radio stations with inexpensive, low-power signal detection in order to create an open positioning system.
Created by Fito Segrera, Conversations On Chaos is a project that explores the idea of order as an emergence from chaos. It uses chaos theory and elements from dynamic system studies and experimentation in order to create a system where two machines hold a chaotic conversation about chaos.
Created by Luiz Zanotello at the University of the Arts, Bremen, The New Velocity is a machine designed to plot the phantom Sandy Island using digital as a new analogy for its existence. The project investigates a charting error that persisted in cartographic maps even after the advent of digital media. It speculates how data and physical phenomena are entangled, and how in contemporaneity, the two have the same weight under digital media.
Created by Martin Hertig at ECAL, Sensible Data is a playful installation consisting of three machines that collect user’s personal data, evaluates mood, age, gender and beauty, to create a ‘passport’ that user can take away but which also randomly sent (without user’s knowledge) to another participant.
Created by Jamie Zigelbaum, Triangular Series is a site-specific lighting installation composed of numerous, truncated tetrahedral forms. Each object has an unique form and senses the other and the physiological rhythms of visitors beneath them.
The Raspberry Pi is a very exciting low cost computing platform aimed at the educational market. It offers reasonable performance in a small package at a price of $25, making it very attractive for creative computing projects. Here we show you how to run openFrameworks on the Raspberry Pi.
Kinograph is an open source project that makes film digitisation affordable and scaleable. It uses components available on the internet, a few 3D printed parts, and a consumer level camera and it produces high quality video with sound.
Murmur enables communication between public and the projection by simulating the movement of sound waves, building a luminous bridge between the physical and the virtual.
