Screen Drawer v06

Screen Drawer v06

I’ve been playing with a few different methods of tracking over the past weeks. For now, this has mostly been using the screen coordinates of a mouse to indicate movement, but in time it will be camera tracking which is driving the system (probably via […]

Kinect Depth Culling

Kinect Depth Culling

I bought myself a Kinect sensor this week; I haven’t had much chance to really experiment thus far in 2012, and thought this might be a good place to start. That, and the Kinect is one of the less invasive interactive tracking instruments I can […]

Plate VI-3

Plate VI-3

Following on from my last post, I recreated a couple more of Josef Albers‘ colour plates from Interaction of Colour. The following Processing sketches give the illusion that they are made up of just two colours. Clicking either will show that the overlaid shapes are […]

Plate IV-I

Plate IV-I

My research has lead me into the dangerous world of perception. So much of how we interpret the world is based on experience, language, culture, and so on – all very subjective words. If this is true, how would someone that cannot communicate through verbal […]

Share Sydney 2012

Share Sydney 2012

Some exciting news for those that came along to Share last year (and those that weren’t able to be there!): Share Sydney will be back in 2012, as an ongoing regular event at Serial Space in Chippendale. Starting in March, Share Sydney will be held […]

Underlapper – Softly Harboured Artwork

Underlapper – Softly Harboured Artwork

Underlapper‘s latest album, Softly Harboured was released this week and I was lucky enough to be asked to do the artwork for physical CD release. It was a lesson in quick turnaround though, as both myself and the band were under pressure to get this […]

Underlapper – Drinking Dust Artwork

Underlapper – Drinking Dust Artwork

Greg from Underlapper asked me to put together some artwork for their forthcoming single, Drinking Dust. The track will be released as a free download, along with remixes by Cleptoclectics and Vorad Fils very soon, so I needed to turn something around quite quickly. Drinking […]

Professional Portfolio – Week 14

Professional Portfolio – Week 14

This will be the last uni-related post of the year (for my undergraduate degree anyway), but not the last update for this project. The interactive table will be exhibited as part of the COFA exhibition, The Annual, at CarriageWorks next month and needs a few […]

Professional Practice – Week 11

Professional Practice – Week 11

The final assessment for Professional Practice is due next week, for which a physical business card is part. This is the only element of this project that I was able to get printed commercially, so I thought it was worth a post of its own. […]

Professional Practice – Week 01

Professional Practice – Week 01

Class This is a subject I have been looking forward to, and especially useful for our final undergrad year. Professional Practice looks at some of the drier – but nonetheless extremely important – realities when working in creative industries. Stepping out of the lecture theatre, […]

ISO50 Takes On Colour

ISO50 Takes On Colour

One of my perennial favourite blogs, ISO50, has just posted a general guide for colour management. This is an area that really seems to have been glossed over in my education, so it’s great to see an attempt to present these concepts in a straightforward […]

Digital Composite – Week 11

Digital Composite – Week 11

Work Done and done! Both series have been completed and received back from the printers – even with enough time for me to start picking apart the design. Nevermind. I think I’ve done enough chatting about where the concept came from in general terms, so […]

Digital Composite – Week 10

Digital Composite – Week 10

Work Work, work, work. I’m inching closer to having these two triptychs finished up now. The direction has changed a little for one of the series, but I think definitely for the better. The first series, based on the National Security Hotline campaign has taken […]

Digital Composite – Week 09

Digital Composite – Week 09

Work Following on from my attempt at a subtle political message, I decided to create something a little bit more direct and graphic: activist posters. Presenting my work last week, it was pointed out that there was nothing in my image that suggested that my […]
