Interaction designers develop our digital everyday life. They concept, sketch and create new possibilities of interaction, which are evaluated with functional and technical prototypes.

Prototyping Interfaces

The book “Prototyping Interfaces – Interactive Sketches with VVVV” covers within 280 pages the applied handling of interactive sketches with the visual programming language VVVV.

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

This is an attempt to show a little bit more of a project, than just a video. There are some interesting bits and pieces, relying on brilliant contributions and sometimes overlooked cookies.

But first, let's have the video anyway.

The EQC-Scanner is sort of a augmented, kinetic installation. One could argue with the term augmented here but it certainly adds information to the "real" layer. The whole thing is controlled by a touch screen, allowing you to pick topics or move the screens with your fingertip. It is all and all car technology communication, but in a playful package.

Ok,let's have a look inside.

Fractal Lightning

This is based on some articles like this LINK A pretty neat recursive routine to learn what recursive is. I used c# but i bet this is easy in VL, anyone ?

The plugin was used for the battery scene. Thank you captain obvious :)

Binary Operators

Usually, when you are in RS232 or some fancy protocol land, you have to decode and encode values efficiently. Like encode high values with little use of digits. I always come back to jens.a.e'sBitWiseOps, this is one of the overlooked contributions.
For this project, the plugins were used to encode the engine controller messages.

Analysis

The image above shows some sensor recordings of the screen movement. Creating this data viz in vvvv was quick and revealed a physical feedback loop. The violet curve shows the frame difference of the screen position. And while the real screen movement actually looked kind of smooth, the sensor data showed some heavy regular spikes. Obviously, the engines did some regular overshooting. Not a big problem and solvable on the hardware side. Interesting how data visualization can help to track down problems.

Vectorraygen + DX11.Particles

Controlling Particles in a meaningful way can be painful. Using vectorfields can bring some structure into the chaos. The tool Vectorraygen helps generating the vectors the easy way. It even has a node-based enviroment to drop some organic variation into your fields. And btw. the devs are very friendly.https://jangafx.com/

The tool was used to create the key visual, 500k floating particles along the car exterior.
DX11.Particles

Boygrouping

Sure, this is not a big secret, it's one of vvvv's selling points. But i have to say, it just works. Bringing together 3 machines was actually fun. Hopefully VL preserves this killer feature.
Boygrouping

Automata UI

This was pretty much the first time i really used my own plugin and it was surprisingly helpful. :) It consists of a initialization tree for the engines & sensors and an abstract transition model of the visual software part. This is an attempt to leave content out of the statemachine but rather use the state TOPIC for every topic in use. It might be harder to read and it doesn't allow you jump to a specific content, but it makes your software expandable (without touching Automata again).

Not sure if this is a best practise for everything, let's see how this works out in the future.
Automata UI

Content Management System

There is always the dream of a fully, totally dynamic vvvv project. Our ruby-on-rails based web tool helps to manage all texts and images. It even renders the texts as images, freeing vvvv from rendering crappy text but rather display smooth pre-rendered images. Most of the vvvv project is depended to the CMS but of course, there are some bits which are always hard-wired, like 3D stuff.
CMS

I hope you find this "article" informative, any questions, comments ?

Cheers

Harmonic Portal is a new work commissioned for Lumiere Festival Durham, 2017 http://www.lumiere-festival.com/durham-2017/
There are 5 pieces arranged around the walls of St Godrics Church, Castle Chare, Durham, each is a portal into the surface of the wall, the light amplifies surface details due to the angle of incidence and feels like a magnifying glass (or even an electron microscope at times.).
They question how we perceive colour, the inside and outside contrast and harmonise as time progresses, while this is mirrored by the sound track which reflects the colours, the frequencies of red, green and blue light have been dropped by 42 octaves and vary in proportion to those colours of light.
It is partially contemplating how our brains create colour from 3 frequencies, but also how limited a bandwidth that actually is, the fundamental notes are a flattened Ab, A and B.

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.

Daniil Simkin’s “Falls the Shadow” is a commissioned performance for the Guggenheim’s Works and Process series.

Four 30-minute performances took place at the Guggenheim Museum NYC on September 4 and 5, with standing audience members observing the show from different levels of the venue, which is known for its continuous ramp that spirals up the rotunda structure and connects to all of the floors.

The work combines dance with live video projections in a collection of six pieces choreographed by Alejandro Cerrudo, with costumes by Maria Grazia Chiuri /Christian Dior.
Daniil Simkin, a principal dancer with the American Ballet Theater (ABT), is also coproducer and performer in the piece, along with ABT soloist Cassandra Trenary, Ana Lopez from Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and dancer Brett Conway.

Projection design by Arístides García and Dmitrij Simkin.
Additional shader programing, Alexander Shaliapin.
Thanks to Robert Intolight for the particles library.

tonfilm: @beyon you can also use F# together with #vl, see: #fsharp #dotnet #visualprogramming https://github.com/vvvv/VL.DemoLib/tree/master/src/VL.FSharpDemoLib

~20h ago

beyon: tonfilm: Ok,currently using F# though but maybe I should look into sharpdx vs xenko math

~1d ago

tonfilm: @beyon #vl also fills these gaps with huge range of collision detection math from #sharpdx which is basically the same as #xenko's

~1d ago

tonfilm: vvvv #audio pack update: better buffer reader and fixed #vl template #visualprogramming #creativecoding #dotnet vvvv.audio-pack-alpha
