Really nice work. And I get to post photos of 1210’s. Double Win.

One cashier, one hidden cam, one printer. Burger King prove that each sandwich is unique, made to order, especially for each customer.

Can’t decide about this one.

LifeStream by Experientia

Snazzy lifestream interface by Experientia. Like it, but it looks a bit overblown and complex at the moment. Interesting though.

Blurb below:

Experientia designed and prototyped an interactive interface for visualising large quantities of information.

The first phase of the project created a benchmark document that presented a gallery of existing visualisation models and current methods of representing data.

After an initial design phase, involving co-creative workshops and concept generation, Experientia combined all their insights into a sophisticated visualisation prototype, together with a video presentation of the interface features, using software such as Flash and Processing.

“The deliverables are top-notch through and through — thinking, content, findings, approach, design, layout — everything is beautifully executed. I am so impressed. … [Experientia’s] are the best deliverables the Concept Development got in the year I worked there.”

Jenny Dunlop, past manager of the Vodafone Concept Development Group.

Nice takeover example on Vimeo

Feels like an age since I wrote about a nice “MPU” or “expandable”. The online ad world has moved so fast and into so many different areas that it’s nice to see to a piece of work that restores my faith in the art. I love the craft in it.

Showing that Vimeo will let you get a bit creative on their site too here’s a nice “takeover”.

There’s no snazzy interactivity jut sit back, press play, and enjoy the animation/code razzle dazzle.

To experience it properly you need to view it on Vimeo (hmmm. I’ve thought of a new ad format).

Right-click and it’ll help you figure out how they do it.

There’s a couple of little things missing, like a website link in the description underneath. Plus I’m not sure how people are finding it.

I find Vimeo a bit less social than YouTube. That’s not necessarily a bad thing on some occasions. But It’s made its way to me OK (3-times in fact) so I guess they’re doing something right!

Generative Music Visualization

http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=8012159&server=vimeo.com&show_title=1&show_byline=1&show_portrait=1&color=00adef&fullscreen=1

Clavilux 2000 – Interactive instrument for generative music visualization from Jonas Heuer on Vimeo.

The Clavilux 2000 is an interactive instrument for generative music visualization.

The setting of the installation consists of three parts:
– a digital piano with 88 keys and midi output
– a computer running a vvvv patch
– a vertical projection above the keyboard.

For every note played on the keyboard a new visual element appears in form of a stripe, which follows in its dimensions, position and speed the way the particular key was stroke.

Colours give the viewer and listener an impression of the harmonic relations – and each key has it’s own color scheme and “wrong” notes stand out in contrasting colors.

Would love to see Les Dawson do his piano ‘routine’ on it.

EDIT

For people who have no idea who I’m talking about – here’s the man himself.

Lumitectura – the relation of light, music and architecture

http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=9330391&server=vimeo.com&show_title=1&show_byline=1&show_portrait=1&color=00adef&fullscreen=1

Lumitectura from barno on Vimeo.

Love this music video by Barno created around the relationship between light, music, and architecture.

The clip is defined by 3 elements:
-One videofile, shot between 2am and 6pm.
-The speed of playback of this file, which is synchronised manually to the music.
-About 50 different masks, wich define where the underlayed movie is going to appear on the screen.

This makes it possible to have multiple light situations in the same moment. So the sunlight caught from the building is the “natural” palette for the entire colors of the clip.

Great work!
