    This is documentation of the Black Rain installation as seen at the Earth: Art of a Changing World show at the Royal Accademy, Dec 2009 to Feb 2010. This version sees all the data collected from the Stereo B Heliospheric Imager as one single timelapse animation in a 5 meter high portrait projection. Black Rain is sourced from images collected by the twin satellite, solar mission, STEREO. Here we see the HI (Heliospheric Imager) visual data as it tracks interplanetary space for solar wind and CME's (coronal mass ejections) heading towards Earth. Working with STEREO scientists, Semiconductor collected all the HI image data to date, revealing the journey of the satellites from their initial orientation, to their current tracing of the Earth's orbit around the Sun. Solar wind, CME's, passing planets and comets orbiting the sun can be seen as background stars and the milky way pass by. As in Semiconductors previous work 'Brilliant Noise' which looked into the sun, they work with raw scientific satellite data which has not yet been cleaned and processed for public consumption. By embracing the artifacts, calibration and phenomena of the capturing process we are reminded of the presence of the human observer who endeavors to extend our perceptions and knowledge through technological innovation.

            C4Real presents to you, the Introduction Movie for Solar Team Twente http://www.solarteam.nl We made this movie for the introduction of their brand spanking new Red Solar Car! The whole introduction revolves around the fact that the car is just plain Red, no sponsors on it, just Bright Red :) . It was really cool seeing the car being designed and then built by the team. The technology behind this car is so amazing we made it a key part of the movie. Some information about the film: Produced by C4Real Netherlands http://www.c4real.eu Sound Design by: http://www.m-works.nl 3D: Daniel Kunst, Daan Pol, Elmar Evers Direction and Production: Ton Kuper, Daan Pol We used a lot of computers to render this one. We rendered in 32-bit at 1920x1080. The original Porsche movie was rendered on one computer in 4 months, this only took a week on multiple machines. We are currently building a bigger renderfarm so we can do this kind of quality super fast. The Hangar the car is standing in was built from HDR photographs, there is even a runway outside that you can only see in the reflections of the car! The idea behind the huge fan was to put emphasis on the aerodynamic and extremely sleek design. It also gives the reflections something to play with. The LaZ0rs are there to give the car the color Red transmitted through light. We had a lot of fun working on this project since we got so much support and freedom from the team. Good Luck in Australia later this year!
