Murmur Study #1 Video

I am also experimenting with YouTube’s HD features. What do you prefer?

Kibu Featured on

A little bit about what goes on at KIBU (in Hungarian).

Here’s a video produced by, one of the most popular online news sources in Hungary. The audio is in Hungarian, but it’s a chance to see a little of what goes on here at KIBU. There are also a few shots of Murmur Study in progress. Enjoy …

ZERO1 San Jose

A collaboration with Bruce Charlesworth is now showing at ZERO1 San Jose.

Although I can’t make it to ZERO1 this year in San Jose, I did contribute to a piece at the San Jose Museum of Art.

Love Disorde
Love Disorder

It’s called Love Disorder and it’s by Bruce Charlesworth with Colleen Ludwig. It’s an interactive video installation at the 01SJ Biennial: Superlight. Colleen and Bruce asked me to develop the interactive system, which includes a tracking system, and custom video player.

It will be on exhibition at the San Jose Museum of Art, May 10 – August 30, 2008

If you’re out in San Jose stop by and see it!

Also, Ali and the gang from Minneapolis Art on Wheels is out projecting from bikes in San Jose this week. See what they’re up to here.

The Gallery

Here’s a prototype for a new project. It’s a 40 x 10 ft., three-projector installation running about 2000 videos. Stay tuned for more documentation as the project develops.

UPDATE: Go here to see the most recent version.

Hvad hører du nu? : Urban Echo in København

Composer J. Anthony Allen and I are currently showing the latest edition of Urban Echo in Copenhagen for the ICMC conference. While our original desire to creatively reflect and transmit the desires and thoughts of local city-dwellers has remained, each new location has suggested a different approach. The installation in the courtyard of Huset i Magstræde in downtown Copenhagen is no exception. In this latest installment, J. Allen and I have tightly coupled the audio and visual components and worked to make the projections more “sensitive” to their façade. For example, when text and images are moving about, they respond to the presence of architectural features such as doors and windows by avoiding or bouncing off of them. A quick look at the images or video will make this a bit clearer.

We will be showing this through the end of the week. The sound components run all day and the video components run from dusk until around 10pm. If you want to participate, respond via voice or text message to:

+45 50 50 44 08

It’s a Danish number, but international text messages are pretty cheap. So go for it!

Notes from Siggraph, 2007

I just returned from Siggraph 2007 a few days ago. It was a mixed collection of interesting technologies and ideas. As one would expect, the primary focus of the conference was computer graphics and related technologies, but I was primarily interested in the artistic exhibits and emerging display and interface technologies on display. Here’s a brief collection of a few that I found interesting.

Overall, I was most impressed by the “lower” tech innovations. A few great examples were SOAP and Globe4D.

To put it simply, Globe4D is kind of like a large trackball or an upside-down mouse with an additional optical sensor to measure rotation. Additionally, there is a turntable around the edge that allows users to explore another dimension such as time. The projection comes from overhead and seems to employ pretty simple OpenGL texture mapping onto a sphere. A very nice, responsive physical interface.

Urban Echo @ the Spark Festival

So, after a very long week, sheets and sheets of frosted window film, hundreds of lines of code, and help from some great people, the new Urban Echo interactive façade is complete. The interactive artwork will be running after sunset on the front of the Regis Center for Art on the UofM West Bank during the Spark Festival.
