Installation with nuts

9 06 2010

Recently i made a small installation for the ‘Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften’ (lets call it as the long night of the sciences), at Collegium Hungaricum Berlin.

This year the symbol was the nut, or a half nut.  That form is really similar as the organic structure of the human brain.

For the nuts i designed a neuron like system. It was more then 300 pieces painted to white, so the lines working well on the nuts surface.

For the neuron surface i used a very simple spline structure, programmed and mapped in Quartz Composer.

For the brain picture, i used the Dicom plugin for quartz composer with a one of the sample file.

More infos about that night you can read here.

pixelnoizz, *spark, an empty media card and a glitch machine:

when its here+now, you’ll be part of it. an experimental performance workshopped as part of visualberlin festival 2010.

this will be the first time, i will use my ‘PXN‘ package, and it fits in the original concept.

so what is this ‘PXN’ thing?

This is a set of plugins, effects, transitions and generators. Based on really easy transformation of glitch, feedback, blend and mask-modes. And of course my G_P_G  is a decent part of it.

The basic concept was to make very easy performance without many contents, perhaps a live camera feed in to my face or just one video loop. And using 30-40 filters and combining them with blend-modes and feedback. I think this kind of combination is enough for a performance, and the performance will not less than one performance with hundreds of well prepared video loops.

And yes, we met with *spark during last LPM festival, we spent some time together and with Vade as well. He offered to make something with a wireless photo camera and glitches. As my stuff is really supported by Vade’s V002 its in reality a cooperation between us.
