The Rorschachoscope 2 uses vvvv to create images that resemble the images used in the Rorschach inkblot test.

The project uses and a collection of different PS2 shaders to transform video input, manipulating its shape and color to create the inkblot-like images in real time.

Visitors could interact with the installation to create their own images by moving around, as if they were in front of some kind of psychological mirror. User movement was also manipulated in a way that tries to simulate ink (to better understand it, see real installation footage or a test video captured directly from vvvv).

If visitors so desire, they could also save the image by clapping their hands once (or just making some loud noise). The current images were then saved, and uploaded to a web page that holds the saved Rorschach-esque shapes as well as the original video input frame that created to them.

This project was created by Zeh Fernando for the Digital Interface Design course at Senac São Paulo (Brazil).

Artwork for the Aurora Festival for Animation Art in Norwich UK


Croppings of two of eno's ultra large drawings were used across all print and online media as the Aurora festival's key visual. For the festival trailer he developed a moving version of my drawings. Ingolf made the generative sound.

In Florenz Italy opened a new space for contempory art la Strozzina at Palazzo Strozzi. For the first exhibition “EMOTIONAL SYSTEMS Contemporary Art Between Emotion and Reason” Franziska Nori asked me to develop a Installation to visualize some of the contents of the exhibit. I developed an Interactive Wall which allows up to eight Visitor to navigate the contents created by Franzisak Nori and Dr. Martin Steinhoff. When a word is touched its implications show up or another content of a connected Layer moves to the center. The contents are related with the different factors of influence on the production of Art.

vitamin B is a project to explore digital and tangible reading. It is an interactive table with tangible interface objects to browse bookpages and libraries. We developed this project during a two week prototyping workshop at Umea Institut of Design, Sweden.

We used Arduino, Fiducials and a Griffin Powermate as inputs.

I am really happy about what we got out of these two weeks and thinking about making a major project out of this. So ideas and critiques are highly welcome!

see the video here!

For the performance / play "living apart together" by director Raman Zaya, a digital video control system was realized within vvvv.

Everything is subject to change.
The harmony of things is contained in their perennial change.
This change is not random or chaotic; it is governed by precise rhythms.
πάντα ῥει is an eternal flow, constantly evolving, never equal to himself.

πάντα ῥει is a project by Pedro Mari aka defetto, realized within vvvv.

It will be exhibited at C.Stem2007, Turin, Italy.

You can find some shotz in this flickr set, a video will be up soon.

Thanks to Ken Perlin.

digital archives

access the archive of 20 years of prix ars electronica animations. Nearly all prizewinning works submitted under the category animation can be chosen from a wall (pda - rfid), loaded onto an interface on a table and selected for viewing (approximation sensors).

One side of an elevator was made of glass so you could look into the shaft seeing a projection on a nearby wall. since the projector was mounted on the elevator, kind of an xray-viewing impression was evoked. going with that elevator, you'd see a ink-painted flower growing inside the wall according to the vertical position. videos could be changed by using buttons of normal buttons of the lift.

Laying printed cards on the table, additional virtual cards appear on the table at the position of the real one. the rotation sets the focus on the virtual content (text, pictures, videos).

these are only the internal projects done for the museum. maybe other artists used vvvv as well...dunno.
and very sorry for the superdelay. more projects coming...

The Future Ocean Exhibition is constantly evolving and growing. The very latest module we made is the ARGO realtime float display. To cut the story short, ARGO is an international program to monitor the entire global ocean with the help of so called floats, little torpedo-lookalikes filled with sensors and communication stuff.

Every float dives down to 2000m level and drifts for about 10 days with the current. After this period the float surfaces and measures temperature and salinity related to pressure. Once the metal bugger reaches the surface, all the collected data is being send via satellite to a collecting point. And that’s where this installation drops in.

The ARGO realtime float display shows all the latest data in a nice graphical fashion. Everytime a float sends new data, a window pops up and shows the temperature and salinity graph of this location. In addition you see the ID, longitude, latitude and time of broadcast.
