I’ve become curious about how individuals would feel when they could not get to see familiar objects any longer. Incandescent lamps have been forgotten among people. They are replaced with the other things due to some logical reasons, and regulations have kept them from being produced in more numbers. Well, I did not use incandescent lamps that much. Although I did not cherish them that much, I am giving my farewell to those who are becoming hard to be found.

Dear vvvvsers, I am pleased to introduce to you one of the first (if not the only) video-clip production in Greece, made by free and open-source software. Specifically, in order to complete the project vvvv and DirectX11/HLSL were used for both the initial composition of the image and the addition of visual effects. Furthermore, Blender was utilized for the editing, post-processing and final export of the film.

Big thanks goes to,
vux, unc, m4d, dottore, colorsound, microdee for their constant and valuable offer via the vvvv community forum.

Visitors pass different zones while moving through the exhibition.
The Intro shows illustrations of 8 Objects representing the technologies to be discussed in the upcoming „TING“-Debates combined with contradictory quotes reflecting on the relationship between democracy
and technology.

Then a basic wooden block, analog to the digital pixel, becomes a haptic tool for visitors to trigger digital interactions within the exhibition and to cast their votes within the TING.

Moving further a section with iconic objects serves as case study area, that demonstrates that the value and impact of the technologies behind can be interpreted in many positive and negative ways.
There is not one meaning or truth, but many possible uses and impacts.

The centerpiece of the exhibition is the grand amphitheater-like space of the TING

The completely projected 400 sqm space interactively tells the story of the Kingdom Wu.

Visitors are immersed in a 15-minute story about the rise of the Kingdom of Wu during the Spring and Autumn Period between 514–496 BC. We created a unique visual style as a mix of cinematic martial arts scenes shot in Shanghai combined with paint-style animations.

The linear storytelling is enhanced with interactive elements that reinforce the visitors’ feeling of being transported back in time, away to king HelV’s coming into power, his fight for hegemony, the victory at the battle of Boju and other great legends of that period.

Hyperbook is a low cost, interactive media station, inspired by the MIT “NeverEnding Drawing Machine”, that turns a book into a support for different types of content unrelated to its paper nature.

Hyperbook was realized with the multipurpose toolkit vvvv by the students of the “Creative Coding and Video Music Course” of the Academy of Fine Arts, Urbino Italy.

Students: Alessandra Giannotta, Caterina Lani, Stefano Mancini, Qin Qi. Professor: Davide Riboli.

After some months busy, we are proud to show the making of the Fashion Week Parade show For Aristocrazy Jewels in Madrid.
A real challenge in my career , and a big step for Geometrica.
15 minutes of show, handle by VVVV .
All the aspects of the show where controlled by the underestimated and useful timeliner node. Dont ask how i achieved it, just after lots of nights without sleep.
I developed a custom Video to DMX Module to to control Led strips and moving heads, and lots of realtime patches for the LED Screens,all in symphony with a midi timecode.

Hardware used:
2 PC workstations running vvvv (DMX, Motion Graphics and Video)
1 Imac´s (audio control + madmapper).
24 Sharpy moving heads.
100 mt Of white LED strip.
25 mt of RGB LED strip.
5 DMX dimmers 27 channels.
Martin F20 led screen.
PROLED 6 mm led screen.
Chamsys MagicQ Console

Thanks to all the crew for the support , it was an amazing experience,
Please, use CC subtitles.

Short music piece composed specifically for AR.Drone 2.0 Parrot Quadricopter. It consists of the sound synthesis generated by Drone’s movement in the space as well as the sound of engines. When the tracker detects the drone flying in defined area it generates data, which is then interpreted using a pre-defined algorithm in an open source visual programming language Pure Data. In this way the Drone shapes and structures musical material and becomes an instrument.

Drone is controlled via FreeFlight application running on iPad. Depth image from Kinect sensor is evaluated by the Kinect Virtual Hitboxes DX11 patch in vvvv which detects the drone’s location in the space (more precisely its relative position inside the bounding-box). A vvvv is sending it to Pure Data, which are transmitting it to a music system. When a quadcopter flies into the defined area it generates musical pattern sequences based upon a predefined algorithm. In this way the drone takes control over the sound synthesis.

Just put together a video to showcase projects that happened in 2013 and also in the beginning of 2014. The intensive work year had an beautiful end when we visited vvvv user io in tenerife for the Numacircuit festival.

With this review I also have to say thanks again to a couple of guys that share the interest in these topics and support on every end.

Non of the projects would have been possible with the efforts that the frequent users here put into the development, patching and documentation everyday.

And the special motivation is that this little island of vvvv is only virtual for a certain part.

The best thing is still when you run into the people in person.

So at this point some greetings to you which I am talking about.

Enjoy the Video.

PS: I am freelancer and looking for projects. Feel free to contact me anytime.

Architectural Light Studio (The ALS) is unrivaled software suite designed for creating, editing and playing back architectural and art lighting scenarios.

The ALS editor is required for:

  • creating a three-dimensional geometric layout of lighting equipment in 3D
  • creating a developed layout view on a plane with address assignment and equipment grouping
  • creating visual effects scenarios

Main benefits of the new software:

  • real-time lighting equipment simulation with calculation of illuminance according to luminaire .ies files;
  • - more than 500 IntiLED luminaires with W, RGB, RGBW color modes and up to 40 pixels per device;
  • - handy tools for creating complex layouts for luminaires of varied types, with an option to assign to building model surfaces;
  • - full-fledged display of buildings and environment as 3D models as well as ability to display dynamic lighting effects in real time;
  • - tools for creating lighting scenarios at the multi sequenced timeline;
  • - support of the Art-Net protocol enabling use of a wide spectrum of additional equipment;
  • - support up to 256 Universes and several automatic DMX addressing modes.

The debut of the ALS took place on The Light+Building 2014 in Frankfurt from March 30 to April 4, 2014

The ALS is written in vvvv by Ivan Rastr electronic crafts.
Please take a few minutes for video preview of The ALS v.0.95 beta
