  2. On Sunday March 3rd, littleBits hosted an electronics prototyping class during AIGA's Make/Inspire Workshop at the Harlem School of the Arts. Students of all ages worked through the design process sketching, prototyping, and finishing an autonomous art bot. These Bit powered Bots generated some truly incredible artwork.

  3. Can micro-organisms also be performers? How does our relation to these creatures
    change, after they are seen in an artistic and theatrical context?

    Looking for a micro-organism that would have the qualities of a performer, I was
    introduced to C. elegans; a tiny worm, less than a millimetre in length, that moved
    just as elegant as its name implies and the first creature to have its entire genome

    I was intrigued when a researcher told me that, to tell the worms apart under a
    microscope, he used different mutations that altered the way they moved.

    Some move in a spiral, other rolled or twitched and some became morbidly obese
    because of their mutations.

    In my installation I have five petri dishes filled with five different mutated worms,
    which each move slightly different. These five groups of performers are filmed with a
    usb microscope shown live on the five screens.

    I wrote special software that tracks the worms, and translates their movements into
    sounds, making them the unware performers of the music in the macroscopic world
    above their heads. While researchers are almost like gods to these helpless worms,
    controlling them from their first to their last cell division, I hoped to give the worms
    the power to affect us in our world as well.

    The project won the artists & designers 4 genomics award, and has been realized with help of NCSB, NGI and Waag Society

  5. Screens as they exist today are flat, 2D and rigid; even the 3D displays we have today are not true 3D - they are optical illusions. We created a 2.5D display that is shape changing with the help of actuators, depth cameras, projector and a silicone screen. 'Obake' (o-baa-keh) as we lovingly call it, imagines how we would interact with elastic display. We could literally pinch and pull them!

    Create mountains by pulling them out of the screen, draw rivers with your fingers, elevate an entire terrain to see a cut section view. Make your data come alive. The video shows our working prototype.

    Hardware built with - Wood, linear actuators, liquid rubber casted into a screen, Kinect, Projector
    Software written in - openFrameworks

    Music - Babe / Evenings
