NYC Resistor, Interactive show

I could not resist going to the NYC Resistor annual interactive show! What a party!
So many creative interactive project made by the members and guests of the Resistor’s community. This kind of event makes me happy after seeing so many talented and creative  people. Great DJ, awesome home-brewerd beer and lovely “adorkable”  conversations… What more do you need for the summery saturday evening in Brooklyn?

To add more to it: I was also showing my first interactive piece! 3 sensor (light, sound, temperature) artwork, operated by Arduino. And it worked well and it glowed in the dark like a mystery window to the universe.

The Invisible Visible

The visible is not obvious. So much is hidden behind the visible and can only be revealed when particular conditions are true or specific actions are applied. Like looking at the stars with a naked eye versus using a telescope to see more. 

I invite you to see the invisible and glance at the universe by activating light (hover over to darken), temperature (warm it with your fingers) and sound (clap your hands) sensors.

This glowing interactive clothes was designed by Olivia Barr and Trammell Hudson for dance performances. Ballerina is controlling her lights with the way that she movers, if she is very slow, the light is also very dim… Impressive!

Works by Jakob Theileis
He designed a self-drawing works. Two spheres with working motor inside control the pencils that move chaotically on the paper. He just needs to move the shapes for the different path and chose the color! Very intricate works. And that speaking goat… too much fun!
