A Study of Time

‘A Study Of Time’ by rAndom International 2011 from rAndom International on Vimeo.

A gorgeous installation that uses light, it’s presence and it’s absence, as a medium for the representation of time.

A vividly illuminated autonomous algorithm magically reveals the time of the day, re-imagining the principle of telling time from falling shadows as a contemporary light installation.

night lights from thesystemis on Vimeo.

YesYesNo have made an installation that does a bit more than just projecting on buildings. They let viewers become performers, by taking their body movements and amplifying them.

There’s 3 interaction types – body interaction on the two stages, hand interaction above a light table, and phone interaction with the tracking of waving phones.

Looks like a lot of fun.

LastHistory – interactive visualization your Last.fm history, obviously

Takes a while to initalise the first time, but once the data is in there it’s loads of fun to play with. It’s also got a really nice ‘personal mode’ that hooks up to iPhoto to display pics taken at the time you listened to the music.
