Conditional_Lover is a bot that unlike its counterparts that live hidden in servers, has a physical appearance with a task to automate your Tinder using its “eyes” and “fingers”. It does this by analysing photos on your phone (webcam) and then selects or rejects it (prongs) based on an algorithm that combines your preferred age, golden ratio, smile, glasses, ethnicity etc.
Created by Bryan Ma at Parsons, Definitions is a computational poetry installation made up of 15 networked LCDs that searches MIT’s ConceptNet to serve as a metaphor for the use of NLP in commoditizing human activity on the internet.
Created by Dana Zelig, Traces project explores the concept of programming everyday materials, a form of “physical programming” where objects are “made to act” on some form following specific instructions.
Pixtil is a French design/product studio that uses new digital drawing tools to create contemporary fabrics. Their latest release is a Large Napkin, made using double-cloth Jacquard weaving. Each piece is unique and numbered, using long textile tradition while incorporating most modern techniques of textile production.
Philips is doing more and more in the field of health and asked the second and third years Interaction Design at ArtEZ Academy of the Arts Arnhem to do develop a project about Quantified Self. Amy Whittle and Willem Kempers teamed up and choose breathing as focus, it being a vital function that can be subconscious as well as controlled.
Created by Yingjie Bei and Yifan Hu at ITP, Moon Phases allows the audience to input any date and it will show the moon phase for that night (from the northern hemisphere’s perspective).
Created by Madrid based creative studio Espadaysantacruz, Light Kinetics is an interactive light installation where the behaviour of light is controlled by a physics simulator.
Transient Materialization explores the relationship between digital and material-based digital fabrication through n-hedron structure composed mainly of soap foam, which is blown, through a mixture of air and helium, into a foam structure.
Created by Francesco Tacchini, SPOOK-I is a hypothetical but operative US National Security Agency inspired machine. It mimics two surveillance techniques available to the NSA Tailored Access Operations unit, in order to expose the technology employed by state surveillance for the ‘weaponization of everyday’.
Series of workshops by Ludwig Zeller at the Visual Communication Institute of the Academy of Art and Design in Basel to use generative systems to create visual instruments that mimic the expressivity of electronic music synthesizers.
Created by Princemio in collaboration with onformative, the Pathfinder project was created with aim to contribute to the creative processes of choreographic development.
RC4 in London researches computational design methodologies for large-scale 3D printing with industrial robots, taking logistical, structural and material constraints as design opportunities to generate non-representational architectural spaces with extreme information density.
Created by LUSTlab in collaboration with The Mobile City, Binnen de Lijnen is part of an ongoing research project called Public Space – Public Matter from Trancity. Over 100 children took part in colouring the playground which visualised the spatial organization of Schilderswijk’s social life.
Series of works exploring the subject of drawing images in the space around the earth using latitude, longitude and altitude as a coordinate system.
Created by Adam Ben-Dror, The Abovemarine is a vehicle that enables José, or any other fish to roam on the land freely
The following is a collection of new generative pieces created by Walter Gorgosilits aka dextro from Austria, one of the pioneers of generative Macromedia Director programming.
Through an inspiring tutorial with 26 code examples Amnon Owed shows you how to use Processing to explore the creative possibilities of generative typography.
Every once in a while a project comes along that will change how we think, discuss and produce digital art. Four+ years in development, FRAMED* will not just be a canvas, but a platform and a community hub for the art of our generation.
