Ava; is the surface-volume shape coefficient. The main inspiration comes from monumental experimentations which focused on particle physics.
AVA’s design originate from the Buckminster Fuller’s iconic dome structure. It has 360 traceable area from the exterior surface of the dome.
Cosmic rays reinterpreted within the concept of AVA and the first version of the performance screened at Paris.
AVA is a Commissioned Artwork and designed as a portable installation which can be transportable and positionable at any place.
"UNITY of MOTION" is an interactive art piece based on the point of view that "life is movement itself”. The piece combines nature (living matter) and machines (inorganic matter) through the beating of the human heart resulting in a new kind of existence. Comprised of three installations: HEART, NATURE and MACHINE, “UNITY of MOTION”creates an experience depicting the cycle of life and death. It is unique to every participants heart beat so the no one will experience the same result allowing for endless possibilities.
HEART (Sensor Sculpture)
A sensor which uses infrared rays to detect people's heart rate from the palm of their hands. On the top section of this structure we find a recycled piston engine, the heart of any car. This sensor sculpture is the original driving force behind UNITY of MOTION.
NATURE (Media Wall 1)
A giant monitor through which we can visualize the movements of living creatures in the natural kingdom via computer simulation. While HEART collects people's heart rate data, the movement of these projected animals, such as flocks of birds, starts to evolve. These movements are generated with an artificial life simulation program called Boids. It is set so that each individual animal's movements follow a simple set of rules, and yet this escalates into very complex behaviors.
MACHINE (Media Wall 2)
Monitors arranged in a V-shape, symbolizing mechanical motion. In standby mode, they show the intimate connection between trigonometric functions (Sin, Cos) and the circular motion made by the engine piston's movements. So, MACHINE is also connected to HEART, just like NATURE is. When HEART detects the palpitations of human beings, the repetitive cycles of motion of sine waves and cosine waves drift away and begin to embody life; they take the form of a bird or other such living creatures, flock into groups, and begin behaving in bewildering ways.
UNITY of MOTIONは、機械（無生物）と生命群（生物）という一見異なる運動を、人間の心臓の鼓動によって揺さぶり、それらを仮想空間の中で融合させることで、新しい生命環境を提示している。本作は、HEART、NATURE、MACHINEの三つの装置で構成。
赤外線で人の手の平から心拍データを検出するセンサー。造形のトップ部分には、車の心臓であるエンジン・ピストンを流用。このセンサー・スカルプチャーを起点として、UNITY of MOTIONが駆動する。
本インスタレーションでは、人間の心臓の鼓動という情報を、HEARTというインターフェイスを通じて、NATUREとMACHINEに命として与えます。UNITY of MOTIONは、「運動それ自体に生命を見出す」という観点に基づき、運動によって自然と機械を融合させ、新しい運動体へと導き、運動体は最終的には無へと帰っていく。この一連のサイクルは、毎回全く異なる様相を見せ、毎回個別の生と死の物語を紡ぎます。
In this tutorial, David Oldani shows how to generate a 360 environment in After Effects from an existing comp using SkyBox with Trapcode Particular and Element 3D. Watch in French: vimeo.com/130342730 Watch in Spanish: vimeo.com/130342728
The 360 environment is used as both a reflection and environment map, so a Trapcode animation is reflected perfectly onto an E3D Statue. The plugins look like they are seamlessy integrated and inhabit the same space in Ae.
Mettle SkyBox is an Ae script/plugin to generate 360 Reflection/Environment Maps (equirectangular, cubic cross, spherical). The Maps can be used as Environment/Reflection Maps in Ae, in 3D Apps, and are the right format for youtube 360, VR, Dome projections and Gaming. To find out more: mettle.com/product/skybox/
