After four wonderful years, I have left LOVE. to embark on a new journey over with my good, and extremely talented, friends at newly formed Rhythm. An exciting start to the new year for sure!
It’s about time I gave this a go. So with the help of a talented motion graphics guy and openFrameworks, we got a nice demo going on the LOVE. Mural. We want to make this a permanent installation, and add some interactivity later on.
This is me messing with create.js. Slightly bizzare. Top notch graphics, incredible gameplay. :p Keepy Uppy’s with Lionel Messi
Another audio visualisation in HTML5, but this time it’s using three.js / WebGL
I had a bit of time spare, so I made a simple audio visualisation in HTML5. Enjoy. This will probably hypnotise you. See it in action!
At LOVE I spent the last few weeks developing an art installation for Salford University at MediaCityUK, where people can add their brush strokes to a huge digital canvas using their smartphone and tablet. This involved three massive screens, three rack-mounted Mac’s, a laptop, Socket.IO, node.js, a mobile web app and four AIR apps (using […]
Here is an installation we did over the last month at LOVE. No apps, just go to the website on your smartphone over 3G, and join in! We pulled this off using socket.io & node.js, Adobe AIR and HTML5. It got a nice bit of PR too: makezine.com / Creativity Online / how-do.co.uk / The […]
– Create your scene in Cinema4D – Make sure all of the normals are correct (to prevent having to double side everything) – Select all of the objects to bake – Replace items after bake – Export as *.3ds – Open Blender – Import *.3ds – Export as Wavefront (.obj) – Get this python script […]
– Make sure all lights have ‘ambient illumination’ checked. (maybe ‘show illumination’ too). – Select Objects to bake – Select render > bake object. – Check illumination, Single texture. (also replace objects for final version). – Apply baked jpeg / png in cinema4d as the color texture, and not luminosity of the material. Import to […]
I’ve been tinkering with RaphaelJS, got a nice interactive vogel spiral going on. Click on the circles to morph them into a full screen rectangle. (click again to minimise). Please upgrade your browser
Here’s a little something we put together for SCEE this Christmas. They have been having a free gift givaway. No catch! Pure free gifty goodness! There were some amazing prizes to win, and a big juicy present to throw about to give you a clue to what’s inside!!!! Hurry, it ends in two days!! Oh […]
Here is a site I’ve been developing over the past couple of months at LOVE. It’s for Umbro’s global campaign for 1350. The custom module has been built to run on the existing Umbro Flash site. umbro.com/1350
This installation was setup by DOROTHY and LOVE to mark the anniversary of what would have been John Lennon’s 70th birthday and the 30th anniversary of his death in 1980. It was then screened onto Ocean’s media screen outside Liverpool Lime Street Station. It is using software similar to our Two Fingers to War installation, […]
Here’s the result from one Sunday. I haven’t had much time recently, so I have bundled a load of different things I’ve been wanting to experiment with, into one. So it is slightly random, but was fun to make. To put it simply, this is a motor which is being controlled remotely by my phone […]
After hours of decoding and cross-referencing hexadecimal numbers with an Ascii table, and studying the LED boards 20-odd page communication protocol – I was able to create a Processing library to communicate with our LED board via the RS-232 protocol. Sound easy? You should have seen the document! Working that out was the hardest part. […]
I spent a day working out the workflow of getting openFrameworks talking to Flash. So as a test project I decided to attempt to get MIDI messages from my MIDI controller into Flash. This was something I wanted to do a few years ago but didn’t have the technical know-how. For this setup I am […]
I’ve just started learning Cocoa Touch / Objective-C. I’ve also been playing with Cocos2d for the iPhone and made a simple game. It’s not very exciting though.
We’ve just done another interactive projection for DOROTHY / LOVE at Ctrl.Alt.Shift’s Dear Diary event at Hoxton Hall. We set up a Mac for people to write there darkest (not so secret) secrets on. The movements were recorded and sent to another Mac near the projector. This was running the projection app which randomly picked […]
I made an AIR app for LOVE. for a guerilla projection for Umbro outside of the office, generating some interest around the campaign for Umbro’s Stealth football boot. Everyone in the video thought the projection was coming from the street behind, when in fact it was out of the building to the left. Which was […]
