M BOX INTERACTIVE MEDIA WALL 2012

//INFO
The m wall system is a permanently installed interactive media wall, consisting of 20 Full HD displays and a dedicated client-server system (11 computers). On the one side, a powerful in-house development tool for interactive installations, it can also be used to simulate and playback large format video content.

The system offers endless possibilities in the fields of generative and reactive content creation. External live feeds such as twitter, video streams and picture content from the web can be embedded into the content. The m wall system can be controlled through various interfaces, such as, e.g. iPads, Kinect Motion Control, or classic show control systems.

A broad array of reactive, interactive, generative and linear modules have been developed for the m wall. These can be used for various applications, such as, e.g. 360 degrees projections or projection mappings, but also picture adjustments for large format video playback. The m wall system is based on the VVVV software extended by the performance Framework IRIS.

For the presentation of the upcoming program line-up of Austria’s biggest privately owned TV station, Viennese event agency Büro Hirzberger hired us to install an interactive visual system to decorate the gala event that took place in the MAK, a museum for applied arts.

The most important part of the evening was the screening of a double-HD video presentation with the TV-highlights of 2013. For the rest of the evening we developed a very flexible live visual system that was constantly playing with the architectural features of the room. The event location is situated in a museum and is normally used for exhibitions. This minimalistic white-cube with it’s three white walls is ideal to create an expansive projection experience.

To achieve this we used six video projectors, two for each wall. Regardless of the difference between the aspect ratios of the projections and the walls we created a seamless image throughout the room using precisely positioned projectors and mapping techniques. Our vvvv real-time system allowed us to fine-tune all optical effects so that the ventilation ducts seemed to be the source of the waves or logos. All projections were controlled by two computers running vvvv.

Additionally to the animated design we translated the visual style to the graphics on the bar tables, out-door banners and accreditation desks as well.

Preview video for upcoming live audiovisual concert
Partitura - Sonate for Viola Solo
Abstract Birds + Quayola
Music by Gyorgy Ligeti / Performed by Odile Auboin
Producer: Keri Elmsly
Sound Analysis: Adam Stark
Commissioned by Arcadi
in collaboration with Ensemble Intercontemporain
LIVE @ Nemo Festival, Paris
MAC Créteil: Maison des Arts de Créteil, Place Salvador Allende, 94000 Créteil
27th November 2012
Partitura-Ligeti is a collaboration between Abstract Birds + Quayola in the form of a live audiovisual concert and installation based on Ligeti’s sonata for viola solo, to be performed by Odile Auboin of InterContemporain, Paris.
Commissioned by Arcadi in collaboration with Ensemble Intercontemporain for Nemo Festival, Paris. Now in it’s 15th year the festival develops new work by international artists, showcasing this in numerous venues throughout Paris from November 27th to December 16th.
Partitura-Ligeti will manifest as two live performances on Tues 27th November at Mac Cretail and Friday 30th
November at Le Cube and as a triptych installation at Mac Creteil throughout the duration of Festival.
Inspired by the studies of artists such as Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Oskar Fischinger and Norman McLaren,
Partitura - Ligeti is inherently connected to music, generating and defining its own coherent visual language .
Through the use of bespoke software, the sound of the viola is analysed and transformed into dynamic graphic
scores.
The six Ligeti pieces materialise into linear structures, translating the music and its complexities into abstract
geometries and forms. Ligeti had a far reaching influential palate from; Renaissance to African music,
literature (including writers; Carroll, Borges and Kafka), painting, architecture, science and mathematics,
especially the fractal geometry of Benoît Mandelbrot and the writings of Douglas Hofstadter.
The Sonata for Viola Solo, has been described as “perhaps the greatest paean yet written to a single string, in
this case, the viola’s lowest string, “C” its most sensual asset.”

The Decelerator

Project Website:http://www.lorenzpotthast.de/deceleratorhelmet/

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The Decelerator Helmet offers a experimental approach to an essential subject of our globalized world. The technical reproducible senses are consigned to an apparatus which allows the user a perception of the world in slow motion. The float of time as apparently invariant constant is broken and subjected under the users control.
In the inside of the helmet the Video-signal of a camera is processed by a small computer. The slowed down images are displayed right before the users eyes via a Head-Mounted Display and simultaneously shown at a monitor on the outside. In three different modes the lapse of time can be influenced through a remote control.

The Decelerator Helmet is a experimental approach for dealing with our fast moving society. The sense of vision is consigned to an apparatus which allows the user a perception of the world in slow motion.

In a increasingly hectic, overstimulated and restless environment are the calls for deceleration omnipresent. The inconceivably amount of information and influences in our everyday lives leads in many cases to an excessive demand.The idea to decouple the personal perception from the natural timing enables the user to become aware of his own time.
In the inside of the helmet the video-signal of a camera is processed by a small computer. The slowed-down images are displayed right before the user's eyes via a head-mounted display and are simultaneously shown on a monitor on the outside.
The helmet has three different modes which can be selected by a remote control:
In the auto-mode time is slowed down automatically and re-accelerated after a defined interval. The press-mode allows the specific deceleration of time. In the scroll-mode the user can completely control the speed of the elapsing of time.
The Decelerator gives the user the possibility to reflect about the flow of time in general and about the relation between sensory perception, environment and corporality in particular. Also it dramatically visualizes how slowing down can potentially cause a loss of the present.

PROJECT BACKGROUND:
The idea for the project was born in a Interaction Design course at the University of Art in Bremen, Germany (http://www.hfk-bremen.de/). The course, taught by Prof. Tanja Diezmann, was called "Back on focus – Less is more" and dealt with topics concerning the increasingly hectic, overstimulated and restless environment we are living in.
After the course i continued working on the project and built a fully operational prototype. After some first tests i choosed the aluminum sphere as a metaphor for a reflection bubble, a space where you are decoupled from your environment and start thinking about your own relation to time.
I used the VLC player for the videoplayback and wrote a program in vvvv to change speed of time via the remote control.
So far the Decelerator was shown at the annual Exhibition of the University of the Arts Bremen, the Inside Interaction Conference and the PAGE Magazine. At the moment it is exhibited at the BestOf HfK Exhibition in Bremen (http://bestofhfkdesign.de/).
