1. Diffusion Choir is a kinetic sculpture that uses 400 folding elements to reveal the movements of an invisible flock of birds. Its movements are always changing, driven by custom software running a flocking algorithm.

    The sculpture hangs in the atrium of 650 East Kendall Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and was commissioned by BioMed Realty.

    Diffusion Choir was created by Sosolimited, Plebian Design, and Hypersonic. Learn more at sosolimited.com/work/diffusion-choir

  2. OPEN SPACE 2014 NTT InterCommunication Center
    June 21, 2014 – March 8, 2015

    "objects thinking too much" is a series of sculptures combining daily commodities, iPads, iPhones and other objects. The artist defines iPads and iPhones as daily commodities as well, and uses only standard applications pre-installed in these mobile devices. Objects at this exhibition include an iPad swaying in the wind of a fan while showing animated images of tissue paper flowing in the breeze; an iPad with a magnet attached to its back, showing on its display a reversed map; and an iPad on the surface of which water flows from time to time while entries are being made in the device's notepad. Here the relationships between the real world and "occurrences" shown on the displays are intentionally presented in an obscured state.

    As typified by video chatting (that is also part of this work), smartphones and tablets can be understood as windows for viewing a world outside the "here and now." At the same time, such mobile devices contain functions that emphasize the illusion of actually being "here and now," like when viewing the world through the iPad's camera lens, or using a map application to know one's present location. In that sense, the relationship between things occurring in reality and those occurring on displays may be not as obvious as it seems. Watching these works and raveling out how their respective components are connected will surely inspire visitors to figure out the relationships between themselves and their belongings.

    The “Pathfinder” Project was finalized and presented at choreographic coding. Choreographic Coding is a laboratory invented in 2013, as part of the Motionbank research project of the Forsythe Company. Together with partners like the NODE Forum for Digital Arts, it offers unique opportunities of exchange and collaboration – for digital artists who apply choreographic thinking to their own practice.

  4. This speed project from Design I/O ( design-io.com ) uses Google's Project Soli - Alpha Dev Kit combined with the excellent machine learning tool Wekinator and openFrameworks to detect small movements that look like someone playing a tiny violin and translate that to the volume and playback of a violin solo.
