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.

ASICS NYC Marathon – Run With Ryan

Vitro conceived this video wall as part of its campaign for the New York City Marathon.

It shows long distance runner Ryan Hall running at marathon speed across a tunnel in NYC’s Columbus Circle subway station – and challenges the public to keep up.

Lets just say the pace is pretty quick….

Propellerheads decided to build the world’s biggest drum machine.

Nice work but I’m sure they can get a bit more out of it in the future.

An installation where viewers become performers. Night Lights installation by YesYesNo

http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=8525186&server=vimeo.com&show_title=1&show_byline=1&show_portrait=0&color=00adef&fullscreen=1

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.

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.
