1. Oneironaut

    Well, here it is, my finished thesis! At SVA, everyone graduating has to complete a thesis. As Computer Art majors, we started the process at the beginning of our junior year. From the beginning, I knew I wanted to have my thesis about dreams and lucid dreaming. (The subject has always fascinated me. My AP Art portfolio in high school was also about dreams!) Coming up with a story, however, was hard. I wanted to make it about my own dreams, so it started out as someone just traveling through all these random dreams. After coming up with concept art and storyboarding it all out, I realized that it was just too long and confusing. So, I picked out one of my favorite dreams, where I'm flying, and transform into a hawk. It needed some sort of storyline, so I incorporated another dream where I "wake up" and fly out my bedroom window. The rest of junior year was spent tweaking storyboards and making production schedules. At this point, I knew that I wanted to use the Waking Life rotoscope technique. Every second, every frame, would be that much more work. The deadline of April 2009 was always looming. The summer of 2008 was spent filming. Starting out, I was using a Sony HDR-HC7. Great camera, until there was a problem with the tape drive! (Luckily it was under warranty, so it got sent off to be repaired.) However, I still had most of my filming to do, so I was able to get ahold of a Sony HDR-HC9... even better! I used an Ewa-Marine underwater housing (Really, it just looked like a big ziplock bag! But it kept my camera dry, and that's all that matters!) for all the "flying" sequences. Senior year, Fall 2008. Thesis work really begins. I worked with my thesis advisor to really tighten my cut, trimming out any unnecessary frames. Then, every frame was hand drawn in Photoshop. This part took the longest, about five months. Then color was added in After Effects. Aaaand... here it is! The title comes from reading the book "Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming" by Stephen LaBerge. In it, he uses the word oneironaut to mean "explorer of the dream world." I scanned in that page, and you can see it in the background in the very beginning, if you look closely! The music used is "Escape into the Twilight" by Skrypnyk. You can download it for free from Overclocked Remix! http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01734/

Es handelt sich um eine Simulation und nicht um eine permanente Installation. STREETPONG is a concept of urban interaction by Sandro Engel and Amelie Künzler developed with Holger Michel at the HAWK Hildesheim, Faculty of Art. It is a simulation, not a permanent installation. (Update 19.November 2014) Durch das stetige, weltweite Feedback ist StreetPong nun Realität geworden. Aufgrund der enormen Resonanz auf das Video erklärte sich die Stadt Hildesheim als Unterstützer des Projekts. Dank reger Unterstützung von Unternehmen in der Signalanlagen Branche konnte das Projekt realisiert werden und die erste Testphase des Prototypen läuft derzeit. Die Eröffnung im Video: https://vimeo.com/112496798 Sandro Engel und Amelie Künzler haben auf der Idee ein Unternehmen aufgebaut. Because of the steady and global feedback StreetPong is now reality . Due to the enormous response to the video, the city of Hildesheim became a supporter of the project. Thanks to a great team of companies operating in traffic matters and hard-/ software developers, StreetPong is now a prototype at a traffic light in Hildesheim.

[update 6th of September 2012, now incl. english subtitles] Streetpong is a concept about playful urban interactions by Sandro Engel and Holger Michel. http://www.facebook.com/hawkdigitalemedien https://www.facebook.com/pages/StreetPong/423215501048574 [update 5. September 2012] Auf die Idee kamen die beiden Studenten Sandro Engel und Holger Michel als sie ein Thema für ein freies Projekt im Kurs Interaction Design - Mobile Interfaces suchten. Sie hatten viele verschiedene Ideen und haben sich dann nach umfassenden Beobachtungen im urbanen Raum für Streetpong entschieden. Es ging zunächst mit Stift und Papier an das Konzept und per Photoshop wurden die ersten Screens entworfen und auf dem Smartphone dargestellt, das wir dann kurzerhand einfach mal vor die Ampel hielten und uns auf diese Weise dem Thema näherten. Das Spiel selbst ließe sich auch relativ einfach programmieren, aber die Genehmigung, eine Ampelanlage umzufunktionieren, hätten wir natürlich nie bekommen. Aus diesem Grunde entschieden sich die beiden – die auch sehr sattelfest im Motion Design sind – dazu, ein Video zu erstellen, welches die Idee möglichst gut erklärt. Gedreht wurde also in der Stadt, nachgearbeitet am Computer. Dass nun aber diese gelungene Dokumentation einer Seminararbeit derartigen Anklang findet, damit hatten wir nicht gerechnet. Bisher gibt es noch keine Anfragen, Streetpong auch wirklich umzusetzen, aber jede Menge Zuspruch und wer weiss, vielleicht hilft uns ja das viele Feedback im Netz dabei, die Stadt Hildesheim doch noch zu überzeugen. http://www.streetpong.info http://www.facebook.com/hawkdigitalemedien https://www.facebook.com/pages/StreetPong/423215501048574 Idee: Sandro Engel, Holger Michel Umsetzung: Amelie Künzler, Sandro Engel und Holger Michel Betreuung: Michael Helmbrecht, Prof. Stefan Wölwer HAWK Hildesheim, Fakultät Gestaltung, Interaction Design www.hawk-hhg.de/gestaltung/interactiondesign
