INFO

“Trans|form” is an interactive sound sculpture in collaboration with composer Micheal Pounds that consists of five metal plates with attached mechanical transducers that vibrate the metal according to audio signals sent from the computer. Signals sent from the computer are resonated according to the physical properties of the metal plates. Additionally contact microphones attached to the plates can provide feedback to the computer, allowing the computer to gather information about the specific resonances of each metal plate. This information can be used to furtherexploit those resonances by adjusting the audio signals sent to the plates. Interaction is provided through a capacitive sensing mechanism. When viewers movetheir hands near the plates or touch the plates, signals are sent to the computer, allowing the viewers to trigger sounds or modify the properties of sounds through their hand movements. Five different metal sheets/plates are used with varying physical dimensions and thicknesses. Different transducers are attached to each plate according to its physical properties, and each plate will resonate at different frequencies.

INFO

Final Wisdom I is an interactive installation engaging viewers in a sensory exploration of temporal and spatialized poetry. Participants manipulate imagery, sound and language through their gesture, touch and proximity. The work is engaged through a framework of cameras and sensors that react to heat, position, and capacitance – presenting a shifting environment of reactive media and haptics. Final Wisdom I is the work of artists Hans Breder and John Fillwalk, poetry by critic Donald Kuspit, music by composers Carlos Cuellar Brown and Jesse Allison. Final Wisdom I was exhibited at the art gallery of SIGGRAPH 2010 in Los Angeles, CA.

INFO

[un]wired is a live-processing network visualizer that responds tointeractions from personal radio-frequency devices such as mobile phones, WiFi signals, Bluetooth signals, and car-key fobs. It tracks real-time statistical information from wireless access points designed for seamless handoff of moving wireless traffic, like a cell phone network), along with periodically updated information from hand-held and wireless access points. Control information is collected from network services via SQL and transferred into Max/MSP/Jitter. This work was produced by the Institute for Digital Intermedia Arts in the Center for Media Design and supported through the Office of Information Technology at Ball State University. In collaboration with programmer Jesse Allison and composer Keith Kothman.

TITLE THE TEMPUS SERIES

IMAGE THE TEMPUS SERIES SCREEN CAPTURE
INFO

A nine-part series cover times of day. Includes Oriens I, II, II; Meridian IV, V, VI; and Nox VII, VIII, IX. The series also interprets viewers gestures in the environment into flowing movements of various shapes and forms - much like the ocean currents cast seaweed. Movement colors, textures, and forms are shifted between passages in the series. Camera tracking follows motion in front of the display allowing for the direct influence of the composition. This large series of works is broken down into 3 set of passages based on time of day. The works rotate thoughout 3 compositions for morning, afternoon and evening. In collaboration with programmer Jesse Allison.
