One day I got an email, an sms, a phone call, a Facebook message and two tweets all within about 5 seconds of one another. This video is a re-manifestation of my brain's interpretation of that event. #trustory

The show stealer at GLOW yesterday was hands down, Usman Haque’s Primal Source. Ask anyone who went, what the best thing they saw was, and odds are good that they will say “that giant fountain projection thing”. On so many levels, this was an incredible art installation ~ a GIANT screen of water that with rear projection, set up such that the dark night sky served as the perfect backdrop for the perfectly clear visualizations - but it’s not just about watching, the group interaction element was there too: a series of microphones against the fence encourage the audience to participate by screaming into them in order to directly alter the visualizations.

Bringing Craftsmanship Into a Computerized Technology.
HAPTIC INTELLIGENTSIA is a human 3D printing machine that allows the user to tactually perceive the virtual object and to directly transform it into the physical. The user can freely move the extruding gun, which is attached to a haptic interface. When the tip of the gun is moved into a surface region of the virtual object, the interface generates forces under computer control, allowing the user to feel and touch the surface of the object.
Without looking at the computer screen, the only way to visualize the virtual object is to pull the trigger and extrude the material along the feedback surface. The results are always unique and different, depending on how each user responds to the machine’s guidance. The sense of touch is no longer present in our current screen-based interface. HAPTIC INTELLIGENTSIA humanizes the 3D printing process, bringing the user a tactile relationship to the virtual object.
Jonas Löwgren is a professor of interaction design and co-founder of the School of Arts and Communication at Malmö University in Sweden. He specializes in cross-media products, interactive visualization and the design theory of the digital materials.
Jonas has taught interaction design in university courses and in companies since the early 1990’s, initiating the influential two-year master’s program in interaction design at Malmö University in 1998. He has published some 50 peer-reviewed scientific papers and three books, including Thoughtful Interaction Design (with Erik Stolterman, published by MIT Press), and a vast range of general-interest and pedagogical material. His design portfolio comprises some 50 projects from explorative research and professional contexts.
"oneHug" is an interactive media installation for public spaces to strengthen the awareness of human beings towards ecological problems.
"oneHug" combines technology, natural materials and interaction in context of public spaces. It aims for a strong emotional perception of nature by addressing different human senses.
In the center is an interactive replica of a tree, which attracts passersby and asks them for one hug. The tree notices the immediate proximity and reacts by an audiovisual response.
The moment of amalgamation between the visitor and the tree is photographically conserved in the tree's memory, which is visualised by a projection and a LED display in the treetop.
