      • One Hundred and Eight – Interactive Installation

        One Hundred and Eight is an interactive wall-mounted Installation mainly made out of ordinary garbage bags. Controlled by a microcontroller each of them is selectively inflated and deflated in turn by two cooling fans. Although each plastic bag is mounted stationary the sequences of inflation and deflation create the impression of lively and moving creatures which waft slowly around like a shoal. But as soon a viewer comes close it instantly reacts by drawing back and tentatively following the movements of the observer. As long as he remains in a certain area in front of the installation it dynamically reacts to the viewers motion. As soon it does no longer detect someone close it reorganizes itself after a while and gently restarts wobbling around. www.nilsvoelker.com 2.40 x 1.80 m fans, plastic bags, MDF, relays, a camera, a computer, a microcontroller and countless screws summer/autumn 2010

          DATAFLUX investigates the possibilities of using live software patches to render synesthetic audio and visual installations. The piece uses a software counting mechanism to step between scenes and sequences. Projections are beamed onto a motorised mirror allowing for wider displacement which is also triggered via the same system. Size and locations for the reshaping white squares are changed on every beat, allowing for the movement streams that you can see, this relocation creates an internal message that allows the software to fluidly render these changes. It is this concept of a hidden working system that I aim to represent with this work. I want to visually represent the mechanics of the software program. As of yet this installation will last one minute twenty before the viewer will be presented with a loop point, however with inclusions such as randomizers and out of phase oscillations there is the possibility of an artificially generated sequence with perpetual transformation. The sound is made up of four pre-rendered two channel linear streams that are re-triggered every 30 seconds, developed in a way to seem to be a more complex live point to point triggering system (the lack of a fully live soundscape was due to lack of developmental time). Heavy sub bass information was present and a strobe effect is also triggered once every 60 seconds. These extreme audiovisual elements were included to heighten the sensory effects the work has on the participant, and to attempt to draw a connection between virtual and physical/environmental intricacies. The installation aims to represent the notion of pushing capacities in order to assist in envisaging further developments. The layout of the pillars are based on the existence of a fixed large pillar located in the centre of the room. I am planning for Engimatica in February to more dynamically represent a digitally choreographed environment. To my indiscretion and perhaps paradoxically, Enigmatica will be made up of a completely pre-rendered looping linear stream, there will be no live software elements. www.kitwebster.com

            Onion Skin, an installation by Olivier Ratsi [Antivj / Fr] Concept & visual content: Olivier Ratsi Music: Thomas Vaquié Onion Skin is a new immersive installation by Olivier Ratsi, an artist on the ANTIVJ visual label. The first stage in the Echolyse project, which will give birth to several variations around the same concept, Onion Skin is made up of a physical dimension – a module of two walls, positioned at right angles – augmented by a projection and a 5.1 sound broadcast. Onion Skin is a graphical work about the re-composition of time and space through a game of perspectives, both of the exhibition space itself and that of the projection canvas. Built around a progressive structure, made up of 4 parts lasting 14 minutes in total, the piece plays on the principle of repetition and scale to create a physical and hypnotic experience that opens doors onto the hidden and untouchable. The whole experience of the installation is based on a very specific point of view. A precise position from which a new dimension is revealed to the audience by anamorphosis. The simple geometric elements (“peelings”) that seemed to be flat at first suddenly start delimiting a new space. The illusion of a new dimension within the installation slowly appears as the onion skins seem to be leaving their physical surface behind. A 5.1 surround sound set-up accentuates the physical dimension of the installation, strengthening and playing with the impression of volume and space. antivj.com/onionskin Management & production: Nicolas Boritch

Visuatari is a work using the technique of 3D videomapping, in order to contrast this latest technology with classic sound and picture to video games, giving honor to that days, where children admired such technology could not fail to see and play in front of that virtual world so unknown and so interesting as well. tonner.v@gmail.com Enjoy !!! ...

                In mathematics, the tesseract is the four-dimensional version of the cube. What the square is to the cube, the cube is to the tesseract. A tri-dimentional array of moving light mounted in an open scaffold construction are able to turn in any direction. Within the cube shape, the spotlights evoke a futuristic world. The installation is in fact no longer sculpture but motion itself: an ever-evolving state of shape and space of which the spectator is a part. The installation offers a new way of seeing the urban environment and literally invests everyday reality with an extra dimension. Like the cube, all the fixed shapes are translated into a fourth dimension. Displayed at: - New Forms Festival , CA (first prototype) - Signal Festival, CZ - Glow Festival, NL - more to come...

The rotation of the discs, each holding three tracks, can be synced to a sequencer. The Soundmachines premiered on the Volkswagen New Beetle stand at the IAA motor show in late Summer 2011. In cooperation with the sounddesigner/producer Yannick Labbé of TRICKSKI fame, we developed three unique discs, each controlling one track of an Ableton Live Set exclusively made for the Event. The show was supported by a set of realtime generated visuals, running on a 25m wide LED wall.

                    I was commissioned by SpaFax and AirCanada to do two small promotional video to showcase in their airplanes. This year is their 75th birthday, so I was ask to show case air hostess costume over their life and also another spot to showcase the planes. That was the only brief I got, so I produced and directed these videos. Again with the in camera trick effects and a lot of object building, I came up with this all reel made installation. Definitely the funnest part was the big modular numbers and the frame reveal system for the mannequin. The air hostess, was shot separately from the rest, then all the numbers where in the same shoot, activate by ropes and pulls and wind. The air plane spot was all shot year per year and then matched together.

                      The Maneki Neko (jap., literally Beckoning Cat; aka Lucky Cat, Money Cat) is a common Japanese figurine which is believed to bring luck, attract customers and bring prosperity. The Lucky Cat waves with the raised left paw and holds a historic coin in front of itself with the right one. The Lucky Cat as talisman and selling product is wide-spread in Asia and meanwhile almost all over the world. Luck is associated here with monetary and material prosperity. For tourists the Lucky Cat became a kind of pop style Manga character which appears in growing numbers in western private households. As kitschy-petite like exotic souvenir it refers to a certain idea of western lifestyle. The material element of the installation»The Global Pursuit of Happiness, or: The Army of Luck« is the »Lucky Cats' Matrix«. It contains 520 shiny golden XXL Lucky Cats made of plastics which are arranged in 40 rows and 13 columns on a ramp-like stand made of aluminum (W 8 m, H 3 m, D 2 m). Visitors experience the Lucky Cats' Matrix as a dot-matrix display which consists of 520 waving paw grid points as its »pixels«. In each cat a servomotor is built in to control the paws move exactly in position and speed. The visitors are requested imaginarily by the cats to interact as users: "Your concept of happiness is our lucky command. Write it on the keyboard". Words and sentences up to 40 characters can be put in and are displayed clearly visible with the paws letter by letter as sliding text marquee. So to say, the users »choreograph« the Lucky Cats performance wordwise. Literally it is the »inscription« of an idea of happiness or a wish in the Lucky Cats' bodies by moving their paws forward and backward. For users, the Lucky Cats become multiplied »avatars« in the world of chance and happiness. But the Lucky Cats are also able to perform spontaneously as well: they can show 25 different salutatory and signalizing gestures as well as mass movements like the »Mexican Wave« or an ecstatic »hyperkinesis«. Every displayed sentence triggers audio events – sound samples of mass or group events, like entertainment shows, political speeches, demonstrations, sport events, parades, accidents, etc. from the beginning of the last century until today. The sounds express auditorily different states of mind, like joy, euphoria, desire, fear, hate, aggression and resignation, astonishment, outrage, pain, panic, desperation and fanatical excitement. The sounds are played in random order and unpredictable combinations. Different contexts and changing settings are emerging. Are the Lucky Cats »one-armed bandits«? Or is it a gesture in the context of a political or religious movement? Is it a just a happy waving of the fun-loving, hedonistic society? Or is the assembly of Lucky Cats a revolutionary deployment of »wish machines« as »army of luck« or is it just another marketing campaign? The lined up, gold-reflecting mass of the Lucky Cats in the matrix appears almost as an insubstantially copy-paste-animation. The Lucky Cats in the matrix as an industrial made product become an »ornament of the masses« for repetetive-stererotype and globalized-industrialized ideals. Do we need more and more Lucky Cats to generate more and more prosperity for more and more people?
