Created by MPC Digital and The One Club, Fracture.io is an installation experience for The One Show’s lavish after party at NYC’s Bowery Hotel. Fracture.io allowed guests to “enter the digital space”, taking 3D scans of pose-striking partygoers to generate beautifully abstracted, full body 3D renderings.
In this project, Self-portrait 21, the 3D copy of the skull represents the true image (vera icon). This image has formed the basis for a facial reconstruction by a forensic anthropologist, who received the skull anonymously accompanied only by the information that it belonged to a man in his mid-40s born in Western Europe.
What would your favorite album look like in three dimensions? Mexico City-based research and experimentation studio Realität proposes “a new spatial and unique journey” by transforming the sounds of five albums into physical matter. ‘Microsonic Landscapes’ translate sound waves into 3D-printed visualizations that resemble circular cityscapes, mountain ranges or volcanic craters.
Made with Cinder and a Kinect sensor.
Using microphone input to create a 3D ripple through space which distorts the geometry and colors it as it passes. Video coming soon.
3D real-time graphics, rapidly moving particles and dangerous cyber attacks: it is all there.
The visualization system is called the “NICT Daedalus Cyber-attack alert system”, where Daedalus stands for “Direct Alert Environment for Darknet and Livenet Unified Security.” The system is specifically developed to observe large groups of computers for any suspicious activity, as it visualizes any suspected activity as it moves through the network.
What does “friend” mean? It’s always been a slippery term, subtly changing through the ages. Even today, the word slips and slides between meanings. A young lawyer meets some friends for a drink, but she only sleeps with her boyfriend. There are some things she can only tell her best friend. As a donor, she is a friend of the museum. In court, she attacks the arguments of her learned friend. When she gets into politics, she’ll address a crowd of friends. She probably has hundreds of friends on Facebook.
