»FLUX« is a data-driven art installation visualizing the different facets of the Internet of Things and cognitive technologies. Through four unique visual modes, the sculpture cycles through mesmerizing imagery created through streams of living data. Intelligently engaging with its viewers, the piece is a focal point of the IBM Watson Headquarters, Germany.

credits music::lars leonhard - deep breath, crunch - grama & toe tac t.c. thanks sebl for shadertoys_05. his translation of the mandelbulb node let me research myself on shadertoy.com. I'm not the fittest programmer because I started late (in my adolescence computers were as big as living room cabinets and came from IBM). yes, code understood. it was more difficult to find parameters that are not iterated and to which audio can be added / multiplied without making them misshapen lumps. at first there were spastic twitches with every heavy drum beat. I could fix that. work continues

A sculptural object consisting purely of a material with screenic properties.

MORE INFORMATION: http://www.lorenzpotthast.de/screenization/

What if screens could be shaped into any form? What would happen to our expectations of forms and materiality, if all surfaces contained screenic properties?

Watch on vimeo

Following the tendency of screens for self-effacement, the materiality and surface condition of the object step back in favor of its content: The appearance of the sculpture is defined purely by its screenic materiality. As a mock-up of a screenitized object, the sculpture simulates the behavior of screenic properties outside a flat rectangle. Regardless the technologies used, the sculpture questions our understanding of shape, material and surface in a world where screens are increasingly dominating our visual perception.

A screenic sculpture was built, that consists of a thin mold of semi-transparent plastic, cast from epoxy resin. The form of the object is deliberately designed as a “non-shape”, not representing any known form and also the materiality of the plastic is strangely unfamiliar. In the inside three mini-projectors are mounted with a custom-built short-throw lens system. A specific projection setup creates a seamless coverage that fills the whole object from the inside. The projectors are battery driven and wireless connected, and therefore allow for the sculpture to be moved around in space freely without limitations or shadowing. The images shown on the surface can reach from abstract shapes to concrete depictions and are controlled by a VVVV patch on an external computer. A modification of the VLC player is used to send the video data to the three Android projectors synchroniously. This parallel existing digital version of the object is used to merge virtually simulated properties with the physical appearance of the object in real-time. Using different sensors for tilting or touch recognition, the object can behave according to its context and be interacted with.

The theoretical part combines a detailed examination of the historic development of screens with theoretical thoughts about the essence of screenic properties.

This project is part of Lorenz Potthast’s Master Thesis “Screenization - On the Diffusion of Digital Screens” in the Digital Media program at the University of Arts Bremen. It combines a detailed examination of the historic development of screens and theoretical thoughts about the essence of screenic properties with two experimental infrastructures to make speculations about screens of the future tangible. Furthermore it is embedded in the ongoing research on experimental screens with his collective for audio-visual art Xenorama.

In ancient Greece, the term Mousiké was used to indicate the most important form of representation, an essential tool for every citizen’s education.
This artistic practice was expressed in three inseparable and complementary ways: poetry (singed words), instrumental music and dance. Through the perception of harmony (rhythm) between the components of mousiké, a person was able to forge his identity recognising himself as one element in the harmony of cosmo, becoming in this way "citizen of the world".
The Mousiké project wants to get back to this original vision of the artistic act as a symphony of multiple expressive forms: combining instrumental music, real-time visuals and body movement to find in their corality an essential symbol of the human’s complexity.

A Fazioli grand piano was specifically modified to allow two different worlds like classical music and contemporary digital art to establish a dialogue: a sensor bar placed under the keys of the piano captures every gesture and action of the musician, providing this informations to the software that will later interpret it to generate the visuals.
By using a tracking system device the visual artist interacts with the software through the language of movement; the body becomes in this way a sophisticated and precise interface that provides meaningful data to the system.
A custom made software uses the data extracted from the piano and the dancer’s movement to generate and animate the visual compositions, allowing the artists to react immediately to the visual feedbacks and explore the vibrant space in between the languages.

ALEA(s) is an audiovisual collective based in Brussels joining the forces of illustrator FSTN, musician and synth manufacturer Shakmat and motion graphic designer Boris Wilmot.

Born from the will to offer a unique live experience, ALEA(s) delivers boiling, improvised performances mixing live drawing, video animation and electronic music.

Surrounded by their audience, the three members are busy creating their show, without any safety net. While the complex, loaded electronic music fills the room, the illustrator’s physical implication in his drawings and the hypnotic animations projected onto the big screen unite to finish this well-rounded show.

ALEA(s) performances are often described as immersive, intense and crafted.

Visual System had the pleasure to present a visual and sound performance in the famous Centre Pompidou during The FIAC. Laurent Garnier and Pedro Winter performed in this giant Dj Booth. The contents were both pre-programmed and react in real time with the music.
