Motion Bank Projekt – Tanzende Vektoren

7. November 2013 - 16:58 Uhr


Im Rahmen des sog. „Motion-Bank-Projekts“ von William Forsythe analysierte ein Team z. B. die Choreographie „No Time to Fly“ (von Deborah Hays).
Ziel war es , dem Stück zugrunde liegende Muster zu erkennen und zu visualisieren. Im Frankfurt LAB filmte das Team vierzig Aufführungen von drei Tänzern mit acht synchronisierten HD-Kameras frontal, von den Seiten und aus der Vogelperspektive. Über Triangulierung verortete die hierfür vom Fraunhofer Institut Darmstadt entwickelte Software (Instant Vision) die Tänzer im dreidimensionalen Raum. Später wurden die Daten als Vektorgrafiken ausgewertet.
Das gesamte, interdisziplinäre Projekt ist auf 4 Jahre angelegt. Spannend: es ist ein international angelegtes Projekt mit:
The Ohio State University, Fraunhofer-Institut, Hochschule Darmstadt, Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach, Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Frankfurt am Main, Palucca Hochschule für Tanz Dresden, Humboldt Universität Berlin, Max-Planck Institut für Hirnforschung.

The animation is an experiment and explore all the graphical possibilities of representing the idea of the sphere. Its done in 3D, using generative effects, but mainly focused on a graphical and flat result.

Here is a breakdown, done by a blogger who is known for great tutorials in cinema 4d and aftereffects. His page is always worth a look!

Virtual Museum Visit

3. Juli 2013 - 14:41 Uhr

Mazda’s Museum has been digitalized by Google Street View and offers a virtual tour:



Street view combined with e.g. omni (see link below) reminds me of Star Trek’s holodeck.

Fire Writer

23. Mai 2013 - 18:04 Uhr

FireWriter is a graphical production tool built with Processing & Wiring. The hardware consists of a hacked inkjet printer controlled with an Arduino Uno, a Dremel torch loaded with a butane/propane mix that burns up to a temperature of 1200C, and an added calibration module built with an optical sensor. It works on various types of supports such as wood, paper, walls, plastic, fabric and many others. The duration, strength and precision of the flame can be controlled in real-time manually with a pitch.
A black & white image first has to be fed into the Processing script, which dynamically writes a Wiring code that can then be compiled and sent onto the Arduino board. The printer then burns dot by dot (pixel per pixel) on the horizontal axis. The machine is equipped with step by step wheels that enable the user to lower the printer one line at a time on the vertical axis on any support.
