    Project FEAR simulates what you experience during an interactive horror movie, which is perceived in a “Blackbox” we built, so that you are alone with your fear. If you enter the box you have to clip a pulse sensor to your ear, input your biological data, put on noise cancelling headphones and take a video camera into your hands. . After your experience you will see how your body reacted to the scenes and if you were scared or not. This project was developed in the 2nd Semester at the U.o.A.S Darmstadt as a semester project in Interactive Media Design. Team: Ivan Iovine, Volker Matthes, Christian Tielmann and Alexander Henker

      In memory of January 7th 2015 – Charlie Hebdo is an interactive video installation which shows the dramatic attack on Charlie Hebdo from different points of view. By pressing the keys 1 to 0 the spectator can start key events which play a particular sound and different videos. The order of the key events is not predefined and allows the viewer to play with it in every possible way. The more combinations of videos and sounds, the better the installation. Lose yourself in the images and in your own thoughts! The aim of the installation is to make the spectator think about what happened, why it happened and about the consequences which were caused.Maybe in the end or even during the installation some questions will arise: What rights has satire? Is there a limit? What does “Je suis Charlie” mean to me? How can we fight for our freedom of speech in times of war and terror all over the world? What can I do myself?

        This video is part of an attempt to examine how urban performances and digital interactive technologies can be combinbed in order to produce contrivances in the public space, challenging the viewer-visitor to live a sensory exprerience. The completed publication can be found here: http://issuu.com/elench/docs/___________________________/1 To create this video we used 2 different codes for prossesing that take information from webcam and create images. The first one is called "Optical Flow", created by Hidetoshi Shimodaira and the second one "Motion Trails" created by James Alliban. Links from each code can be found below Optical Flow: http://www.openprocessing.org/sketch/84287 Motion Trails: https://jamesalliban.wordpress.com/2008/10/13/motion-trails-v01/

          During my final year at London College of Fashion I spent time to look at the female body image in contemporary consumer culture and society. I came across projection mapping and started experimenting with it, with the result of a beautiful installation showing several litte clips that express what I was feeling and thinking when I was struggling with my own body image confidence in 2007.

            CONVERSATION AU FIL DE L'EAU (Stream of Conversation) An installation by CECILE BABIOLE and JEAN-MARIE BOYER Conversation au fil de l'eau (Stream of Conversation) is an installation that enables two interlocutors to chat about a suggested topical thread, using a local water grid to “stream” short text messages. This communication system applies Marshall McLuhan’s famous dictum “the medium is the message” – in this case via a novel, parodic and retrograde medium expressly chosen to observe its effects on the messages conveyed. It is its dual nature, at once medium (process of transmission) and message (text generation), that is at the very heart of this artistic project. The installation was produced by Les ondes with the support of Dicream-CNC, Arcadi Ile-de France, Oudeis le Vigan, Labomedia, Malaupixel, Géographies variables. The video was shot during WRO 2015 media art biennale in Wroclaw Poland

                  Kelly Stading's Graduate Thesis Show, "Half LIght" is a sculptural installation that conjures up the thoughts and memories that gurgle to the surface of our conscious minds when doing the mundane tasks of daily routine. Housework and chores like cooking, cleaning and preparing for bed reveal the uncomfortable interiors of the persistence of memory. Filmmaker, Lexi Bass explores the darkness of Stading's miniature world to an ambient soundtrack of dripping faucets, oven hum, and other eerie household voices.

Formulated according to motifs and proportions of ancient architecture, infused with fundamental mathematics of modern digital communication systems, each genesis of the artwork's geometry is unique. Variables such as the time of day, the viewer's location on the Earth, and the position of the Earth around the sun are incorporated into the artwork, thus instilling into the realm functions of a rudimentary clock, global positioning system, and solar calendar. Review by Jo-Anne Green: "Monolith[s]" juxtaposes two icons of British culture: stone circles (Stonehenge in particular) and the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). "We are in a gravitational pull of past and future."(1) Lacking declarative evidence of its original purpose, Stonehenge is a site of contested meaning. "It suffers from polysemia, in that it signifies a range of meanings, discursively contested through image and text."(2) Visitors are kept at a distance, no longer permitted to walk among the stones and physically experience their immense scale. In "Monolith[s]," Magruder has appropriated the perspective that many images of the monument give: that of the majestic site at a distance, the glow of the sunset or moonrise radiating from the horizon, its backdrop. But Magruder's virtual world IS approachable—indeed, the user may immerse herself in it or fly above it. As she does, the temporal and spatial dimensions of her own immediate environment are absorbed and rearranged into a constantly evolving virtual realm in which the history of the Information Age materializes. Formulated according to motifs and proportions of ancient architecture, infused with fundamental mathematics of modern digital communication systems, each genesis of the artwork's geometry is unique. Variables such as the time of day, the viewer's location on the Earth, and the position of the Earth around the sun are incorporated into the artwork, thus instilling into the realm functions of a rudimentary clock, global positioning system, and solar calendar."* *References: (1) Jeanette Winterson, "Weight" (2) Andy Letcher, Jenny Blain, & Robert J.

                      Screen-capture from the installation in Second Life (http://secondlife.com). The project website is at http://archive.turbulence.org/works/adamnash Trace Aureity is an interactive, immersive, audiovisual sculpture located in the 3-D synthetic world Second Life. There are eighty-eight manipulated field recordings — from city streets, birdsong, to talkback radio — and ninety-six nested rotating objects densely arranged in a three dimensional grid. Avatars, either solo or in groups, generate sounds by moving through the installation. Some of the innermost nested objects, colored red, also spawn glowing spheres which fly out and bounce around inside the work, triggering sounds as they pass through other objects. Because the playable space is so dense, players are rewarded by slowing down their movements as much as possible, since even miniscule movements create differences in sonic output. The contingencies of time-based interaction by people-as-avatars creates a dynamic audiovisual composition, always unique to that moment and those interactors. This may be seen to represent an evolution of the aleatoric composition techniques of John Cage and Brian Eno, as well as an enactment of the objets sonore of Pierre Schaeffer.
