    • Fractal Experience - 4D Metatron

      A while back I made the Fractal Experience, a series of pictures exploring the relation of chaos and order. Now I'm set out to continue the exploration from a new perspective. I've added two new dimensions; depth and time and discovered that wonderful patterns emerge from seemingly random motions in space and time. This is the first video, exploring the dimensions of the Metatron figure. All rights reserved

        This video illustrates the subdivision process we have used to create the FIFA Development Globe. A low-resolution icosahedron is successively subdivided to form a higher-resolution representation of the earth. The number of subdivisions is increased for near country borders and smaller area countries to increase the resolution of the representation where needed. http://devglobe.fifa.com http://www.nand.io/visualisation/fifa-development-globe

        • Polyhedral Kaleidoscope


          from John Edmark / Added

          2,933 Plays / / 0 Comments

          Unlike a regular kaleidoscope in which the three mirrors form a triangular prism, the mirrors in the polyhedral kaleidoscope form a truncated triangular pyramid. This results in the replicated images no longer being coplanar (as in a regular kaleidoscope), but rather meeting each other at an angle. In this version of the polyhedral kaleidoscope the angles are calculated to create a virtual icosahedron—one of the five Platonic solids—formed by 20 equilateral triangles.

            My first excursion into layering. Of course this meant having to render two videos, and at ten minutes apiece, this involved a lot of computer power. The idea was to create a very soothing if not hypnotic atmosphere to suit the music. I used Mandelbulb 3D for the fractal rendering plus AviSynth/Virtual Dub for the post-processing.

              • ICOSAHEDRON by Tânia Carvalho


                from BS Cultural / Added

                I wish to create a piece for twenty dancers. I am aware of the fact that 20 dancers represent a considerable number of performers. However, my idea is to organize and develop the work with these 20 dancers as if it only involved four dancers, that is, four groups consisting of five dancers each. Each group of dancers intends to represent a single, although apparently fragmented body.

                • The Geometron

                  As the user moves fluorescent shapes over the open end of The Geometron, a tiny camera captures their movements and displays them on a monitor at the core. Unlike a regular kaleidoscope in which the three mirrors form a triangular prism, the mirrors in The Geometron form a truncated triangular pyramid, resulting in a polyhedral kaleidoscope. The replicated images are not coplanar (as in a regular kaleidoscope), but rather meet each other at an angle. In this version of the polyhedral kaleidoscope the angles are calculated to create a virtual disdyakis triacontahedron (aka hexakis icosahedron) consisting of 120 uniform triangles.

                    Animation test of an Icosahedron. 20 faces, 3 loops, 3 cycles per loop. 20 x 3 x 3 = 180 frames of animation, edited for slight continuity. If it hurts your eyes, please complain, but be specific. I'll try to make proper adjustments when shooting it for the final piece.

                      www.intelligenthealingspaces.com Experiment # 1.62: Kinect, Processing, Simple OpenNI, 2 Icosahedrons. Next step = setup Kinect above a client/subject on a massage table. Use video goggles so client can see the kinect's perspective. Position platonic solids above various acupressure points. Conduct virtual acupressure session. Next Next step = add a hand tracking particle system.
