1. Der 40 Meter lange Innenraum eines Containerbootes wird zu einem Resonanzkörper für Licht und Klang. Ein Netz leuchtender Linien schwebt im Stahlrumpf des Schiffes und erzeugt atmosphärische Klänge und Strukturen. Mit Hilfe von digitalem LED-Licht und Klang wird der Raum von den Besuchern als dreidimensionale Raumkomposition interaktiv erfahrbar.

    „Resonate‟ nimmt die vorhandene Kraft der stählernen Schiffswände als Resonanzkörper mittels elastischer Klangsaiten auf, lenkt diese um und bündelt sie in acht interaktiven Objekten. Durch die Interaktion mit den Klangsaiten kann der Besucher individuelle Sounds generieren, die visuell in Lichtwellen übersetzt werden. Somit wird die Oberfläche der Objekte zur Schnittstelle zwischen Klang und Licht.

    Die Installation wird ab 7. September 2012 im ZKM, Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie in Karlsruhe zu sehen sein.

  2. Openarch is a real prototype of a smart home. The first home designed from scratch to incorporate a digital layer connecting the house and its elements to the Internet. Its inhabitants lead a new digital and connected life. It is flexible and thanks to its ability to transform, it can adapt to any condition that the user requires.

  3. This is the updated 2.0 version of our Kinect Interactive Puppet prototype ( vimeo.com/16985224 ).

    Puppet Parade is an interactive installation that allows children to use their arms to puppeteer larger than life creatures projected on the wall in front of them. Children can also step in to the environment and interact with the puppets directly, petting them or making food for them to eat. This dual interactive setup allows children to perform alongside the puppets, blurring the line between the 'audience' and the puppeteers and creating an endlessly playful dialogue between the children in the space and the children puppeteering the creatures.

    Puppet Parade premiered at the 2011 Cinekid festival in Amsterdam. Puppet Parade is made with openFrameworks and the ofxKinect addon.

  4. This project explores the invisible terrain of WiFi networks in urban spaces by light painting signal strength in long-exposure photographs.

    A four-metre long measuring rod with 80 points of light reveals cross-sections through WiFi networks using a photographic technique called light-painting.

  5. More info:

    T(ether) is a spatially-aware display system for multi-user, collaborative manipulation and animation of virtual 3D objects. The handheld display acts as a window into virtual reality, providing users with a perspective view of 3D data. T(ether) tracks users’ heads, hands, fingers and pinching, in addition to a handheld touch screen, to enable rich interaction with the virtual scene.

    We introduce gestural interaction techniques that exploit proprioception to adapt the UI based on the hand’s position above, behind or on the surface of the display. These spatial interactions use a tangible frame of reference to help users manipulate and animate the model in addition to controlling environment properties. We report on initial user observations from an experiment for 3D modeling, which indicate T(ether)’s potential for embodied viewport control and 3D modeling interactions.
