TO DO TODAY:
stay at home and wait for the delivery from o2 that willnver arrive.
O2 you suck.
Soak for a bit and then :
1 – do a bit of research Interactive Installations :
+ qr codes+website; AR- with smart phones each qr code shows a bubble of text showing the tweets from te people inside the building
+Interactive projections : taking peoples movements and projecting them on a building. Was talking to Jonathan yesterday about the possibility of making your own projector and was thinking if something like this would be possible…t looks very very complicated and ambitious!
the next one, cool installation ! repetition+coordination!
+Zimoun sound Installation: repetition of simple forms+movement= great sound and beautiful visuals. I really enjoy the simplicity of the unit and the impact of the whole thing. I can’t understand from the video how interactive this is but am assuming that the forms move accordingly to people in the space. It could also be kinetic! It’s beautiful
+Nearness- interacting without touching! RFID+mobile+old rube goldberg!
+ Bubbles: interactive pneumatic installation– air+tubes+shape in fabric= responsive sculpture! I enjoy this kind of objects, they can mutate themselves quite quickly and they have an immediate response and reaction to the audience.
+ SNiff! An interactive projection of a dog that follows passers by. Great!
+Cumbria Musical hill: wind powered installation
Conclusions: Enjoy the immediate , the visible and simple. One thing repeated in a space—>army of things.
Wind!Fabric!tracking!movement ! Kinetic vs electrical. Interaction without touching. If the interaction was: people activate movement: wind. Wind does something to the restant objects in the installation, they all suddenly start moving!
2- create the page Questioning theory through practice to put all your questions in one place as the project develops. Sometimes it’s good to have it all in one place , i work well with clouds of words.
3- read the chapter on On Interactivity from Andrew Barry
4- Voice recording over thoughts yesterday from Text, Light and Matternal Philosophy of Practice: Liliane Lijn in conversation with Sarah Tremlett.
