For anyone with any interest in the technical art of 3D and graphics, this needs no introduction.
Some fascinating projects here.
The SIGGRAPH Technical Papers program is the premier international forum for disseminating new scholarly work in computer graphics and interactive techniques. SIGGRAPH 2013 brings together thousands of computer graphics professionals, 21-25 July 2013, Anaheim, California, USA. Learn more at www.siggraph.org/s2013.
Short, sweet, and simple demonstration of the motors of a 3D printer playing music:
NO PRINTER WHERE HARMED DURING THE MAKING OF THIS HACK! (however this doesn’t mean that yours won’t be, use at own risk)
At art hack day in Stockholm 2013 and using a Lulzbot 3D-printer I tried to visualize different classical musical pieces.
The project explores the alternative uses of 3D-printers. It’s being used to create unique art by printing classical pieces of music while at the same time acting as an instrument and performing the music itself.
The stepper motors controlling the movement can be run at different speeds, the speed decides the pitch of the sound and makes it possible for the motors to make music.
From the Prosthetic Knowledge inbox, from Felix Pels:
I check in with the Prosthetic Knowledge blog every now and again and really like what you post on there.
I figured that you’d probably like the video by High Contrast. Very glitchy
No commercial relation with High Contrast or the like, just the aesthetic seemed relevant for your style.
A music video that employs various art-tech methods and references, a cocktail of databending, glitch, vhs video, 8Bit graphics and sprites, 3D, Net Art - all put together well, worth a look if you like this sort of stuff. Video embedded below:
The Art of Projection Mapping: John Ensor Parker at TEDx NYU Poly
Interesting 15 minute video discusses, from an artist’s point of view, a brief history of technology, art, and culture, and how that leads into the practice of Projection Mapping. Video embedded below:
As our knowledge of the natural world exponentially increases, so does our perception of reality. Scientific and Technological developments affect us as individuals and as a collective species. At TEDxNYU Poly, John Ensor Parker discusses how the art media of projection mapping can be used to generate needed dialogue on the topic.
Bookmarklet can turn HTML5 videos on Youtube and Vimeo into slitscan-like images:
… Just hit the bookmarklet on any YouTube or Vimeo video page with an HTML5 player, and it will start drawing onto a canvas in the browser. You can modify the speed with the slider (the default value draws the entire video to the width of the browser). You can also download the code and modify it as you wish.
