Doming Along

Doming Along

It’s a good time for me to do a quick technical update on the dome build, now that I have some (temporary) space to fully setup and test the structure. Finally, I’ve been able to layout all 15 lighting heads (RGB par 36’s) and connect them […]

Dome Tent Build

Dome Tent Build

Throughout 2014 I will be carrying out the observational study side of my PhD research (finally, thank goodness). The first stage of this will be conducted inside an interactive dome tent, much like you’d see used for camping (the tent part, not the interactivity). Without […]

If A System Fails In A Forest…

If A System Fails In A Forest…

I was asked at the beginning of the year to curate a show at 107 Projects in Redfern. I knew that ISEA2013 was on the near horizon in Sydney (I’m speaking at the conference, and will bore you with those details separately) and thought it […]

Of Christmas Past (2012)

Of Christmas Past (2012)

Recently, myself and a couple of friends were asked to create an installation piece as part of 107 Projects‘ end of year show. The group exhibition, titled The Christmas Show, was built around the theme of what the Christmas tree means to us in Australia. […]

Line Studies

Line Studies

There is a potential exhibition in the works, for which I’ve been doing some simple line drawing studies. These are all fairly self-explanatory; I just thought I’d put them up along with their Max patches for others to use. The first video of each ‘lineDrawer’ […]

Keeping Up With the Joneses (2012)

Keeping Up With the Joneses (2012)

It’s been a while since I created anything tangible, so I was chuffed that the HAHA Industries guys asked me to come up with some visuals for their D&D’s Beat Ballroom night at the Sydney Fringe Festival this month. Given creative freedom, I thought it […]

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 […]

Film Colour Generator

Film Colour Generator

I had a chat with a friend recently about coming up with a system that drives a lighting rig (more on that another time, hopefully). This system would compliment a music performance, but not in an in-your-face VJ kind of way. It would have more […]

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 […]

IODA and Copyright on YouTube

IODA and Copyright on YouTube

In 2010, the Finders Keepers markets asked us (Eli Murray, Lukasz Karluk and myself) to create a promotional video of sorts for their talk at Creative Sydney. We used a segment of Eli’s music (otherwise known as Gentleforce) for the clip and I posted it […]

Mappa v03

Mappa v03

I’ve started working on a simple projection mapping patch in MaxMSP for the upcoming Share Sydney night at Serial Space. The idea is that once finished, I’ll take it across to MaxForLive and allow it to be dynamically controlled by both audio and MIDI input. […]

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 […]

Christmas Lights (for Nerds)

Christmas Lights (for Nerds)

Our street takes Christmas pretty seriously. At least in Australian terms. Most people in the street take the time to decorate their house (for which there are prizes given, and an Oscar-esque bribery/scandal sideshow), before we close the street for a communal Christmas lunch. Santa arrives […]

SHARE Sydney – July 2011

SHARE Sydney – July 2011

I’ll keep this brief, because I feel as though I’ve gone well and truly into marketing mode and the Bill Hicks in me is starting to unleash some self-loathing. In spite of that, I would like to cordially invite you to our first effort at […]

The Finders Keepers – Making It Happen

The Finders Keepers – Making It Happen

The first angryPixel production was released into the wild at The Finders Keepers‘ talk at Creative Sydney tonight. Let’s just say it didn’t go according to plan and we’ll chalk that one up to experience. The video above is how it should have appeared. Video […]

Lighting Tests

Lighting Tests

Emulating lighting will be a real focus for my end of year uni project and an upcoming installation piece (more on that very soon, once the official promo goes live). I need to create something that is capable to at least initially trick the eye […]

The Finders Keepers – May 2010

The Finders Keepers – May 2010

We’ve just packed up the Autumn/Winter Finders Keepers markets, which were met with ever-growing success. I’ve been organising and running the music stage for a couple of years now, and with the assistance of some wonderful artists and amazing stage design by Michelle McCosker and […]

Digital Video 2 – Week 12

Digital Video 2 – Week 12

As I’m returning to uni for 2010 tomorrow, I thought it might be best to finish off the last couple of entries from 2009. Wow, this is embarrassingly late. I’m probably not able to recall an accurate description of my process at this stage, so […]
