Projecting on the Things

‘Projecting On The Things’ is a workshop served up by Chris Plant (catweasel) and Elliot Woods (sugokuGENKI) covering techniques and topics on the art of projection mapping. We are inviting people to use projectors to redefine the aesthetic meaning of a set of objects, including a feature piece sculpted by Softlab NY. Individual teams will develop works (large and small) through the process, and these will be exhibited at the end of the Node festival.

The workshop will cover the bread and butter methodology of projection mapping (2D and 3D), plus more exotic and cutting edge techniques. We’ll also be discussing general technical and design issues surrounding the art-form, and ideas where it may be moving to in the future.

The concepts and techniques will be taught using VVVV and can be transferred to other platforms, however for the purpose of the workshop we require the participants to have a well developed (or natural) talent for VVVV.

Journey London and Journey Seoul at Bains Numeriques

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

We were invited by Art Centre Nabi to exhibit at Bains Numeriques 20mins north of Paris in a small town called Enghien Les Bains. First of all, we have to give a huge thanks to some great people we met there (sorry to bore you!). Firstly, Hyein Ryu who arranged all our hospitality for us, she was fantastic. Emmanuel Cuisinier for mastering the dancefloor and keeping us in the loop. Christian the tech guy, for accomodating us without compromise. The ladies from Art Centre Nabi who were great to spend time with. Jeremy the king. And finally the chef at the restaurant (lunch and dinner never disappointed). Generally all the Centre Des Arts staff were great and we didn’t want to leave.

We exhibited two works in Paris, A Journey: London, and our new piece, A Journey: Seoul.

A Journey: Seoul explores how people can interact with the memory box, to build up their own memory. People can select slides to build up a scene, and we paint animations onto the slides using a projector from above. We got a great response from the project, and kids seemed to especially fall in love with this one.

Our venue was the church, which although not intentional, turned out to be a very good fit for the work. We got a very still environment with low natural lighting, and very ornate space. This particularly fitted with the aesthetics of A Journey: London which looks at using materials from the past to create new media experiences.

There were some great installation pieces there, our favorite of which was Lights Contact by Scenocosme. We found it very playful, immediate and surprising. There is a metal contact on a stand, you touch that (nothing happens). Then if somebody touches you, the installation reacts with light and sound that is unique depending on the people who are touching. It reacts with fidelity and ‘notices’ the contact between you and the other person with a way that appears very magical.

We saw a performance by Cie Adrien Mie which blew most of the significant  nerves in our brain. We strongly recommend that you don’t watch the video below, and instead find a way to go and watch this performance. Absolutely incredible. Beautifully poetic and sensitive whilst pulling off some breathtaking live visual effects.

In summary: beautiful personalities, pretty town (but no internet), great food, good art and fantastic views from the hotel…

SIDeR 2010 | The International Student Interaction Design Research Conference.

This year, Umeå Institute of Design is thrilled to host the sixth edition of the SIDeR conference in Umeå, Sweden from March 24th-26th 2010. The 3-day event will combine a mixture of keynote lectures, interaction presentations, workshops, interactive sessions and social events.

올해로 여섯번째 행사를 맞이한 SIDeR Conference가 Umeå Institute의 주최로 스웨덴 우메아에서, 오는 3월 24일 부터 26일까지 개최된다. 나는 분명, 다양한 키노트들의 강의와, 프리젠테이션, 워크샵, 소셜 이벤트등으로 무장한 3일간의 이벤트에서 많은 것을 느끼고 경험할수 있으리라 생각한다.
개인적 경험상.. 스칸디나비아에서 일어나는 것들 중 그 어떤것도 허술하게 때우기 식 컨퍼런스는 없었기 때문에…

They are currently inviting students to make research submissions for publication and presentation at SIDeR 2010 (now open until Jan. 24th). Students who would like to have their work considered, should submit a video showcasing their interactive prototypes and systems, as well as a written article that supports their design research within the realm of designing for interaction. Theme and submission details are available on the conference website at http://www.ingredientsingradients.com

1월 24일까지 국제 학생들의 다양한 리서치와 프리젠테이션 발표 자료를 공모받고 있다고 하니 관심있는 학생들은 도전하길 적극 추천함.

Sum
by Bernardo Dominguez

This project illustrates a short story by David Eagleman, from his book ‘Sum’. In it he suggests that in the afterlife we would relive our lives but all activities would be done at once; eg, a two-hundred day shower, and so on. The cut-out squares in the pages represent the amount of time dedicated to each activity by area (where 1 minute is equal to 0.05mm2), so that when seen together one could get a sense of proportion of time spent. The squares are ‘empty’ in order to represent the intangible nature of time.

Mariokart Neo
by Gemmy LiThomas Yau
We found Chinese children/teenagers indulge in gaming console, such as Nintedo DS. We wanted to send a message to the them that outdoor activities are fun as well. Therefore, we decided to bring Mariokart into real life and they can experience it.

Tick Tock
by Louise Moe-Dean
This project is based on the concept of time. I used different exposure times on a SLR camera to represent how much time I spend on something compared to something else. I made the words by piercing holes in sheets of card then shinning bright light through them- no photoshop was used! The longer I spend on something, the longer i exposed the word for and the brighter it is. I photographed 7 pairs of words (for 7 days of the week) and presented them in a large book.
