Eye,Robot

“Eye, Robot” focuses on the intersection of computation, robotic fabrication, and cinematography. The course explores robotic motion control as a creative medium for designers, mainly through the use of the custom robotic animation software platform, designed specifically for the SCI-Arc Robot House.

What Would You Look Like As An Early Hominid?

You can debate how much we have evolved emotionally since our early primate days in Africa, but there’s no arguing about our looks. At that point in human development. we were to beauty what the butt is to fine cuisine - distantly related, and in all the wrong ways.

Visualizing cell tower strength with Google Earth

Franz Graf knew he had a shaky mobile connection on his daily commute, but wanted to see just how bad it was. To find out, he wrote an Android app that recorded the GPS position and signal strength along his journey and then plotted all of the data in Google Earth.

The Gestures Required To Beat Every Level Of Angry Birds, Visualized In Paper And Ink

When you play Angry Birds, at this point it’s likely a completely unconscious, natural gesture; draw back, aim and release. But what if each time you did that, you produced an indelible mark, so that after countless hours spent playing Rovio’s addictive physics flinging mobile game, you had a visual record of your part of the process? That’s exactly what artist Evan Roth did for his latest installation piece, and the end result is a kind of cave painting representation of one man’s journey through a mobile game from beginning to end.

Joern Roeder & Jonathan Pirnay - Facebook Faces (2011)

This is an installation of over 100,000 Facebook profile pictures collected to form a wallpaper, a project dealing with “the issue of data accessibility on the Internet, a topic that is gaining more and more importance and actuality, especially in our times of privacy protection and social networks.

On the one hand internet giants like Google are coming under criticism for unsolicitedly collecting any information accessible; on the other hand it is surprising how many intimacies we reveal voluntarily, especially in social networks like Facebook. 

An unimaginable flood of images with self-projection as its only purpose.”

IRIS by Hybe

Utilising a hacked Xbox Kinect and a custom Arduino board this magnificent matrix of transparent LCD screens displays both wonderfully intricate moving patterns as well as mirroring peoples bodies and emulating their actions. A video is embedded below to demonstrate just how awe inspiring this work truly is.

New 3D scanners reveal the artist’s hand in historic works

Who painted that? Who drew that? Who sculpted that?
The question of attribution has long been problematic for art historians and conservators. A change in the attribution of a work from a highly ranked artist to a lessor one, or to the “workshop of” or “circle of” the master, or the reverse elevation of a work from a lesser status to the hand of the master, can change the fortunes of museums, galleries and collectors literally overnight.
