            Ton Matton is a Dutch-born urban planner who moved to the countryside in eastern Germany to break out of an everyday life designing soulless suburbs and performing uninspiring jobs. Nearly ten years ago, he found a deserted schoolhouse in Wendorf, close to the Baltic coast, and made it his Werkstatt Wendorf, a place for experiments and free thinking.

                This video was commissioned by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) and is the story of a group of Aboriginal Youth Interns and their work in community planning in Guyana. The project was commissioned when the interns had just one week left in Guyana, so shooting was very tight since the locations of the two areas where the interns were based was a considerable distance into the hinterland of Guyana. Because of the limited time, what we shot was heavily supplemented by still photos that the interns took in the four month tenure in Guyana. Our team was small - a total of three persons: Jonathan Beepat, Tenisha Harding and myself - and only two persons were able to go to each location. In Morouca, myself and Jonathan and in Mabaruma, myself and Tenisha. Travel to these interior locations was difficult and saw us travelling in small single engine planes, wooden motor boats and walking where necessary. Needless to say, with the difficult travel arrangements, kit was minimal. We used a pair of cameras; a Canon 7D and a Canon 60D, a few lenses (Canon 24mm - 105mm f/4, Canon 18mm - 135mm f/3.5 - 5.6, Canon 55mm - 250mm f/5.6, Canon 50mm f/1.8, Canon 50mm f/1.4), a Zoom H4N sound recorder, a pair of microphones (a shotgun and a lavalier), some LED lights, lighting stands and tripods. I did the edit in Adobe Premier CS5 and that took about two weeks, including time needed to make some minimal changes as requested by the clients. I tried to follow a simple (albeit traditional) multimedia formula and took a lot of structural ideas from the video produced by DJ Clark for the promotional video done for the MA in International Multimedia Journalism offered by the University of Bolton and the Beijing Foreign Studies University. In this edit, I have removed some of the branding the clients requested at the start and end of the video, in an effort to keep the file size as low as possible.

                  ShadowSampler is a data aggregation & visualisation software prototype for exploring geo located information. It functions as a platform for integrating large sets of geo located data from various sources onto a single interface for comparison and cross referencing. This video demonstrates early concept functions such as loading different data sets into separate layers allowing the user to access each point and retrieve relevant information as graphical overlay. A call back list remembers every data point examined serving as record for tracing exploration trajectory. The software is currently in being debugged facing complications resulting from data binning and concurrent thread processes. Future plans include automatic analytical tools such as similarity clustering and computer vision tools that may augment the study of data generated in urban context. This software is part of the "New Paradigms in Urban Data Visualisation" research project at Research x Design, Dept of Architecture, KU Leuven, Belgium.

                    • Ecological Urbanism App


                      from Second Story / Added

                      The Ecological Urbanism app adapts content from the Harvard Graduate School of Design’s book of the same name for a tablet. Much more than an ebook, it’s an entirely new way of looking at the information interactively. With the majority of the world’s population expected to live in cities by the year 2050, Ecological Urbanism addresses the expanding practice of sustainable design. A timely evolution of the book, this iPad app visualizes the growing body of discourse surrounding the design and management of cities. By interpreting the content for a tablet experience, the app takes advantage of an interactive, non-linear experience and creates new opportunities for exploring the subject. An interactive map provides a way to search geographically and demonstrates where the hubs of innovative urbanism are unfolding. Users can also browse with a timeline, filterable by scale and keyword, providing another access point to the content. Perhaps most importantly, with such a vibrant, growing community and collection, the entire collection is supported by a CMS and administrators can update the content as it becomes available. www.secondstory.com/project/ecological-urbanism https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ecological-urbanism/id556595863 Music: Broke for Free, "Note Drop" http://bit.ly/RHEXkz
