Untitled

.probably u remember that d story with d city camera that is like d eye of d beholder, or d Big Brother eye of everything is idea that firstly was used in d contemporary, street art by #banksy and if u try to search around this blog maybe u’ll find some of those versions. this one is interesting for me because is like ballet, “wall ballet“ – is this new term (?!) or… never mind. they look at each other, do some movements around d wall, u see me, I don’t see u, I see u and u look up in d air, I see u, then u look down in d ground. no problem (ok, I am tripping, but I really try to get back to this blog). there is some really strong connection, that is technological dance people, there is drama, like 2 people behind d cameras are trying to see what d other is doing while he is not watching his personal skin or smt – it’s up to u if u want to see it or not.

?what is ur color _play with it!

.
.

:::hei, this could be you! :)

.

.
I was thinking that this project recognize ur aura color but even that is not like that, this light interactive installation is creating colors from d visitors but it combines them with d colors from d atmosphere in d space in that moment and it mix them even with d colors from d visitors before.

.
.

This project made by d artist ivan toth depeña [founder of airboat studio] is showing d audience part from d things that exist and we don’t see with regular eyes. Is this important for this contemporary era? I think yes! He gives Us d pleasure to enjoy d colors of our life, shows if there was good combination in d spirits from d current & d visitor from before, d environment change d temperature & d light so do this six large LED light boxes.

.

More clearly explained from designboom:

:infrared cameras capture visitor activity, abstracting the image and displaying it in real-time as a burst of colored pixels on nearby light panels, reflecting the user’s activity. the displays also alter in hue based on the time of day and the number of visitors present at any given moment.

the software driving the installation keeps a record of past user visits, adding a sense of dynamism even when the lobby is empty. in addition, several columns look outdoors onto a public plaza, engaging with activity outdoors and blurring the boundary lines of space.

reflection’ was commissioned by the miami-dade art in public places initiative, funded by the revenue of the city’s west lot parking garage. located on miami’s metrorail line, the government center lobby serves as a commuter hub in addition to the headquarters of many government offices.

?what are u doin’. ..nothing, just watching o.O #politics

:Yes, this is definitely a great project. Amazing urban installation!

.the message is very clear, politics as topic [ like most of d time in d urban art ], and how this crew make combination of d objects to express d natural, organic meaning. ..but way to much technologically supported.

:..a ready made message from d designboom master writers, we read:

“:politicians under surveillance’ by spanish artistic collective luzinterruptus is a temporary public installation aiming to stimulate debate and conversation on the roles of the government and its influences in today’s society. armed with 75 fake security cameras complete with intermittently flashing red lights, the team set about the street of madrid, spain, and trained the surveillance equipments around various advertisement used by political parties in their electoral campaigns.”

– :from my perspective this way of showing d society that d mass-media, d big eye also see d big brother trough d camera, and politicians should think about what is right and ‘maybe, only maybe to find way to fix it. I think is moment to stop this observing process and all of Us to try to change d way ~

:this dry way of expression through art further shows that grayness as a form, style of life is consumed by all levels/ communities in d society. media as an element in an urban society should present what is truth, and that is how the posters are doing that function on d streets, just kidding I mean how d politicians should do their duty to their constituents, voters, voices .. [x2 for eyes].

_. ..however, so many eyes look through all those cameras ..

:from luzinterruptus's site:

‘…those that truly keep [the politicians] under strict surveillance are the markets, loaded with unlimited power which allows them to overthrow legitimate governments, imposing in their place a race of technocrats of suspect past, in the service of the crisis.’

:based all around d city this installation in a period of ten hours exhibited groups of security cameras scaling mailboxes, telephone poles, different electric boxes and crowding around a portion of d street. through playful interventions in the public domain, the crew wants to tell us that d project seeks to provoke d audience to think about, to reflect on the current infrastructure of d political structure that controls d society.

:throw d ball – make some pictures

.I want to mention here on my blog for one design that I found recently in d group on fb for creative exchange shared from Dragi Nedelchevski [professional photographer from my country]. It’s design of photocamera(s) with d form of ball. It’s funny how far we go with d inventions, nowadays d ball still don’t shoot very good pictures but wait a bit it’s ball with real shape. 🙂

Throwable Panoramic Ball Camerathe people who invent this are: Jonas Pfeil, Kristian Hildebrand, Carsten Gremzow, Bernd Bickel and Marc Alexa. One of d inventors of this amazing ball camera say that this is meant to be a camera for panorama photography and d explication for this invention that we can find on their web page is:

„Panoramic photography creates fascinating images. Very wide angle images are closer to the human field of view than conventional pictures. If seen through a panoramic viewer they let us experience a location as if we were there. Panoramic image stitching can create panoramas from pictures taken one after another. Unfortunately, acquiring the images takes a lot of time and moving objects may cause ghosting. It is also difficult to obtain a full spherical panorama, because the downward picture cannot be captured while the camera is mounted on the tripod.

In this work, we present a throwable panoramic camera that solves these problems. The camera is thrown into the air and captures an image at the highest point of flight – when it is hardly moving. The camera takes full spherical panoramas, requires no preparation and images are taken instantaneously. It can capture scenes with many moving objects without producing ghosting artifacts and creates unique images.

.

Our camera uses 36 fixed-focus 2 megapixel mobile phone camera modules. The camera modules are mounted in a robust, 3D-printed, ball-shaped enclosure that is padded with foam and handles just like a ball. Our camera contains an accelerometer which we use to measure launch acceleration. Integration lets us predict rise time to the highest point, where we trigger the exposure. After catching the ball camera, pictures are downloaded in seconds using USB and automatically shown in our spherical panoramic viewer. This lets users interactively explore a full representation of the captured environment.

We used the camera to capture full spherical panoramas at scenic spots, in a crowded city square and in the middle of a group of people taking turns in throwing the camera. Above all we found that it is a very enjoyable, playful way to take pictures.“

..pretty cool future we have though ~
