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.

Client work Custo

I made a fashion style lounge visual for the fashion designer Custo Barcelona.


for this kind of visual i used the software called Modul8, because:

-live composing with up to 5 layers

-different kind of input materials (flash, graphics, movies and some QC stuff)

– very easy colorizzing. 

I hope next time i will have some dmx stuff as well, and i can control the colors of the lights.

opera visuals

13 01 2010

I was invited to make an opera style live visual in berlin. The opera singer was Andrea Rost, world famous hungarian wonder. It was a big challenge, with massive research in different movie archives, to find the exact footage.

For the live part i used VDMX, because its always handy if i need to use decent number of movie footage, and i needed the possibility to sign some important points of the movie, and easily jump there. 

And yes i made some custom QC effects, using  Vade’s film effects. The vignette and the white diffusion is more than handy with this kind of old film materials. 

pictures are from the rehearse.
