1. An installation where candidates' heads get bigger and smaller in realtime depending on how they're doing in the Election race.

    Featuring the seven candidates who appeared in the first televised debate.

    Balloon head size is driven by the latest polls and sentiment-analysed twitter activity, before displaying live election results.

    Go and see the installation on the 4th and 5th of May at the Hoxton Gallery, 9 Kingsland Road, Shoreditch and 6th - 9th May in the window of Partizan, 40-42 Lexington Street, Soho.

  2. Marek created a room at the Paul Smith exhibition at the Design Museum which is a fanciful interpretation of Paul's creative process. Our software makes the visuals transition from images Paul has captured to the garments they've inspired.

  3. Scanner invited us to perform our Scanner Piano at the Scanner curated Spitalfields Music Festival. If you like scanners or the word scanner, or Scanner, you might like this.

    Annette Jezierska played an arrangement of John Dowland's Lachrimae. We think the scanner is a melancholy kind of peripheral.

    Many thanks to Scanner, Kate Kelly and all at spitalfieldsmusic.org.uk for having us!

    Many thanks to Jamie Durand for filming the video.

  4. is this good? were invited to create an interactive installation at Nuits Sonores, an electronic music and art festival in Lyon, France, in May 2013.

    We worked alongside Lyon-based Architects lookingforarchitecture.com to create a huge interactive pyramid.

    A matrix of 6 Kinect cameras tracked people as they moved across the pyramid, triggering DMX lighting in the structure and generative graphics on the screens above.

    Special thanks to Pierre-Marie Oullion and Alexis Bergeron from Nuits Sonores, and to Robin Accard from Partizan for making it happen
