    I remember that SuperBien video from last year, it’s fantastic. You’ve got to assume that the people working on Amon’s set have seen and being influenced by it too.

    The Vivid Opera House and Customs House projections are fantastic uses of physical geography and light, so good that they even look got on very low res cameras…. http://www.flickr.com/photos/keir/5799865548/in/photostream .

    I’m excited the possibilities afford by the combination of accurate projection mapping, clever visual ideas and sound – something that Customs House touches on and, I would hope, Tobin’s ISAM project would delve deeper into.

      It’s got it’s moments but considering that they built the set for project mapping there are a lot of moments where I feel that they’re just projecting a flat image on 3 d space. To me, superbien, who’ve done this year’s projection on the opera house, utilizes the facade in a much more intriguing and submersible way:

      Not to diminish the amon tobin work but in comparison it seems they haven’t quite figured out how to use the media facade with projection mapping.

      There is an incredible potential fuming from this technological hotpot indeed, very exciting. I would go even further and also throw AR in the mix – imagine a fully immersive interactive emotional entertaining experience with music, physical interfaces and 3D projection mapping custom delivered without the need of actual projectors, but generated real-time by AR-enabled wearable devices? Yep, still a bit ambitious, but from all I can see highly achievable pretty soon.

      No need for media facades, expensive projectors, lenghty Council approvals, etc, etc, etc… Instead, wearable, personalised and tangible artistic experiences, delivered online and accessible everywhere.

      In fact, that is most likely an area I would love to focus my MIDEA reasearch on next year – if I find supervisors equally enthusiastic about it, that is. :D

    Hey Chris, Just to document what we just talk about. I don’t think “Toolkit for Sensing People in Spaces” is the way to go. I’m sure it’s a hardware issue that can be resolved, and I like your idea of splitting the processing work between two computers, however it’s very late to be adding more [...]

    Looking good.

    I was talking to Heather earlier about the colours, and she pointed out that the look was almost Fire & Ice, once you put it on the smart slab screen.

    Have a look at this colour palet http://www.dulux.co.uk/colours/tailormade.jsp for some ideas on what colour transitions might work better on that screen.

    Thanks for you comments guys. I should also add that you don’t have to use the Kinect, if you can get all the information you need from a web camera (ie. if you only want to see movement in the space, and not track objects against a busy, light changing environment), then just use a [...]

  • Keir Winesmith wrote a new blog post: Quartz Composer & Kinect   6 years, 7 months ago · View

    I know most of the group is using Processing for their visualisation, however I’m sure some of you will be keen to use Quartz Composer. I’ve had a look around at why tools you can use to connect the kinect to Quartz Composer and listed them here. I’ve not tried any of these tools, so [...]

    I was just talking about this with Chris, and I though I’d share it with the whole group. Last year I went to see a performance by the Chunky Move troop called ” Mortal Engine “. I’m not really into dance, but I am into beautiful uses of interactive technology (and that’s what this is). They worked [...]

    You’re motivations are really clear in your post and in your presentation and it’s great to seem them be articulated at the beginning and then actually followed up in the design and your future planning. Good work. The big issue here is how to represent mood via imagery; this is not a straightforward task. It’s [...]

  • Keir Winesmith commented on the blog post Ideation & Sketching   6 years, 7 months ago · View

    You’ve created a clean and beautiful aesthetic in the first part of the first idea that’s somewhat lost when it turns into a smokey city/dream scape. I like how people can create beauty in the city simply by walking past, however the interaction via the butterfly and the hidden city world seem like different ideas [...]

  • Keir Winesmith commented on the blog post Ideation   6 years, 7 months ago · View

    You’ve got 2 strong ideas here Nathan. The scale and interactivity of both of them work well with the screen and environment except, as has been noted, in displaying the hidden text. There are solutions to this problem, such as those suggested by Deb or you could changed your web interface to a drawing one [...]

  • Keir Winesmith commented on the blog post S.pace   6 years, 7 months ago · View

    The aesthetic you’ve chosen would really work well on that screen and work well at night, it also has a natural holding pattern for when no one is close enough to interact. Good work. More thought is needed on the interaction paradigm you’ve suggested, it seems strange that you’ve got a sort of tunneling through [...]

    Both ideas are strong, however I think the collaborative and performative nature of the iRun is very exciting (you might need to change the name as iRun is Canadian running magazine). As was spoken about during your presentation, the idea of a race is less enticing than the mimicry idea of setting and matching wild [...]

  • Keir Winesmith commented on the blog post Ideation   6 years, 7 months ago · View

    There is a good idea in here, however it’s lost in the technology and the complexity of the interface. Letting people create music is public is a good idea, it’s playful, lively and social, however there are too many barriers to use your interface as it’s described here. Perhaps you can draw inspiration from David [...]

    You’ve done an excellent job connecting your grounding research and your ideas into your design. The presentation and the blog post clearly sum up what you’re trying to do and why. It’s only missing your reflections on the feedback you received during the presentation. My only reservations are with the subject matter on the screen, [...]

    You’ve started with a really interesting premise of allowing people to send out digital messages into a digital sea that they physically have to interact with in order to be seen, however if you are going to go with the message in a bottle metaphor I think you need to totally embrace all aspects of [...]
