Eyebeam – Moving Image Fair after party 2014

Live Audio Performance and improv DJ set by Landless Farm.
Video Triptych in the spirit of 60’s video installation art. 3 small HD screens feature generative cosmic imagery, watching themselves and sister universes – feeding back endlessly.

Lighting and refractive surfaces interact with lenses and screens, hand manipulated and performed in physical space. Re-scanned, processed and filtered live.

This setup is a early prototype for “optically coupled” video performance and installation tools. The end goal is to run completely through the displays, doing all processing either optically, with feedback, or on the devices themselves.

Technical Details:

3 Raspberry Pi micro computers running custom OpenFrameworks applications generate feedback, star fields / solar systems. Running the Raspberry Pi camera for feedback.

Live coded Arduino powered lights flicker and provide ambiance.

VDMX and v002 effects for post processing.

Thanks to the OpenFrameworks community for the Raspberry Pi port, specifically Jason Van Cleave and Dan Moore.

But to him by a secret key of the equation, leave the second unattacked.
Remember all ye that existence is pure joy; that all disappear.

Sect 7 N-E / (ᴳ̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̐litch) Art Genealogies

March 15th, 2013

A (very) short experimental feedback piece made on short notice for (ᴳ̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̐LITCH) ART GENEALOGIES show at LEAP, Curated by Kim Asendorf, Daniel Franke, John McKiernan and Rosa Menkman.

Performed and captured live in studio.

v002 work in progress

October 10th, 2012

Talk is easy.

A quick demo of some of the current live patching ideas being experimented on in v002.app during our Eyebeam residency.

The goal of v002 is to lower user interface latency of live performance software, and create a playable software interface that feels at home in an improvisational environment.

v002 is heavily influenced and borrows ideas from a plethora of sources: Quicklook, Spotlight / Quicksilver’s live search (with aliasing included, so users can also explore and guess at feature names*), Maya and Modo’s spatial menu system (for muscle memory and hierarchical navigation), and obviously tools like Autodesk Flame/Smoke, Max/MSP, Pure Data, Quartz Composer and the entire family of node based tools.

We explore a simplified patching environment, along with a “flight deck” (UI objects can be dragged out of detail views and placed onto the canvas – so users can have an overview with immediately accessible controls, and detail views for tweaking). We explore auto-node connection, removal and re-connection so the object graph remains connected when being edited, some basic auto-graph layout methods.
v002 is *heavily* in progress, and we have a lot more to explore. Stay tuned.

* Aliasing is demoed when searching for the “Analog Glitch” effect. You can search: “Distortion”, “Noise”, “Interference”, “TV”, along with the effect name, “Analog Glitch” – all will return the intended effect. Searching “Glitch”, for example, nets you multiple hits, where you can choose the desired result.

v002 @ Eyebeam

September 21st, 2012

I am fortunate enough to have received a residency at Eyebeam for Winter / Fall 2012. All Eyebeam resident applicants apply with a project in mind. What is my project? v002.app.

What is v002.app?
