Giant head sculptures, symbolising the 'open minds' theme of the anniversary, are brought to life with over 36,000 LEDs and more than 7.5km of cable. We designed the visual content that plays on the contoured surface of each 3D head. At the event, children used tablets to draw digitally onto the giant heads.
We used Win surface PRO tablets (actually the first edition, imported from the US). In our opinion the only real tablet for running VVVV. Pros: i5 chip, surprizingly good speed, good resolution. Cons: getting quite warm.
We set up a wifi connection between tablet and 3D LED-head workstation, both running VVVV. Several V4 software brushes were developed. Your artwork is getting saved on a gallery.
Showtime was Oct 13 - March 14 in Zurich, London, New York, Beijing.
Kids loved it. Client happy. We are too.

Seeing an old industrial space filled with huge machines was like a call for action.
In their gloomy shadows you would inevitably recognize monsters hiding behind. Friendly ones.

Pan::Ik performance at STEIM // Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
At STEIM, during a 3-week residency in 2013, we experimented with different resources available in the STEIM facilities including our motion tracking system and body projection mapping. The main purpose of the residency was to develop a set of tools for future performances as our goal is to collect site-specific material and create a different performance in different spaces.
We experimented in creating sound and visuals through movement with the help of VVVV, SuperCollider and different motion tracking sensors and techniques.

In April 2012 myself and Elliot Woods were approached to create an application to project onto a car on a turntable, the brief expanded as the project went on, until by the end, it was to be a different car (of the same model) for every show, they wanted to be able to do multiple shows per day and the alignment was to be done by a member of the staff at the Landrover experience.
A challenging brief.
The building was finally opened in December 2012, the car takes approximately 10-15 minutes to lineup using 3 sliders and a rotatary control on an iPad, with a couple of buttons to spin the turntable around so you can check the setup.
It using 7 projection design projectors all running at 1920x1200, 3 for the back wall, 2 for the car and 2 for the floor, we also had to minimise any visible shadows, content was rendered at 4k and is all run off 1 pc.

Projection Mapping - vvvv - kinect - dance
Programs: VVVV, Kinect, Autodesk Maya (Student Version)
Sometimes, technology has some limits. Dance also has some limitations but at the same time it gives human freedom. Art never ends and constantly gives us joy, love, sadness, curiosity, admiration and all the emotions of the world.
The dancer is asked to give his own performance in a very small space with the restrictions of the technology, but it also gives him the opportunity to express and create. He will achieve this through art and graphics that will appear due to the technology. Based on his body movements he creates his own compositions.
This project was made during an assignment at Cyprus University of Technology.

This is our video of our first ever try in vvvv. It was a weekend workshop – Mediatechnology – at the HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd.
The first task was the bridge correction between two iMacs. It had to be done over the network. We decided to use vvvv and used a UDP Client and Server model to synchronize the displaying of the image. It was very easy to use three instead of two iMacs.
After that we added a kinect. With the skeleton-data, which we got out of the kinect node, we mapped the movements of the head and the hands to the movement of the image. The gestures were made to move completely around in that 360° picture.

Hi all !
For christmas, the visual agency of Paris and I are releasing a brand new project ...
Light installation of 24 LED responding to the music in real time using vvvv (for audio-analysis + OSC control) and Processing (generated animations + Syphon to Modul8).
The project was designed for the 2nd edition of Yellow Lounge party in Paris. Yellow Lounge was born in Berlin with the aim to bring classical music in night clubs and to create AV performances with DJs and VJs. A unique concept for a special night
its actually moving images!
