    Interactive photo album with an organic interface, 2009 by Wolfgang Spahn, sound by Thomas Gerwin (PC, Video Projector, stand, raw egg) The installation “Blick auf die Bewegung” (peek at the movement) is an interactive photo album. By using a raw egg it is possible to interact with a computer generated projection and sound. A program permanently generates pattern and structures. It looks like a curtain that covers all the photos that are shown on the projection screen. In front of the screen is raw egg placed on an stand. This egg can now be used like a trackball. The visitor can clear the picture by carefully handle the egg until the photo is visible. Simultaneous the sound gets clear and you can hear a sampled version of "Lilli Marleen" by Lale Andersen. When the egg is no longer used new pattern grow again and blur the photos and the sound. All images are photos from 1936. The pictures and the typing were made by an Austrian Nazi. It was intended as a propaganda book for the forbidden nationalist party. He made all photos when he went on a round-trip to Germany. On the images you can see typical and important places for the Nazis like: “Thingstätten”, “Wache am Rein”, Adolf Hitler square in Berlin, memorials of Bismarck and Kaiser Wilhelm I., “Braune Haus” in Munich (NSDAP party headquarters), “Heldenfriedhof” and even a photo of the German “Reichsautobahn”.

      Note : This project is a fully working prototype made with Arduino and Max/Msp, there are absolut no sound editing in the video... More picture at this flickr set (http://www.flickr.com/photos/raphaelplu/sets/72157629621382055/) And download the Project pdf here (http://pluvinage.eu/NOISYJELLY_presskit.pdf) Noisy jelly is a game where the player has to cook and shape his own musical material, based on coloured jelly. With this noisy chemistry lab, the gamer will create his own jelly with water and a few grams of agar agar powder. After added different color, the mix is then pour in the molds. 10 min later, the jelly shape can then be placed on the game board,and by touching the shape, the gamer will activate different sounds. Technically, the game board is a capacitive sensor, and the variations of the shape and their salt concentration, the distance and the strength of the finger contact are detected and transform into an audio signal. This object aims to demonstrate that electronic can have a new aesthetic, and be envisaged as a malleable material, which has to be manipulated and experimented.
