Recently I’ve been contacted by Dazed and Confused Magazine to realise the movie clip of Hyperdub artist and label director Kode9.
I was asked to make a video for the H10 mixtape which was around 10 minutes long, using only one image file and without changing any color.
The main idea I had was to make a sound reactive app using the file as plane texture. I decomposed the file in 12 differents layers and mapped each one of them on a different plane. Those planes were at the same origin position in the oF app, by applying wave distortion and mapping texture on the plane vertices I was able to make the layers react to the sound at different amplitude.
Participated in a workshop held at La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris with Martin Howse.
This British artist works at the frontier of code, poetry and psychogeophysics (woot) in order to understand the relationship between software and earth itself.
Here’s an article about it on Makery:
Workshopping with the man who codes the earth
The workshop was divided into two parts, during two days. The first day we’ve been outside in the forest to try some worm poetry. For this purpose, Martin uses a sensor that detect electro-magnetic signals called the “dark-interpreter”.
Once plugged into the ground, worms movements and surrounding signals were translated into chunks of strings that, when put together forms an unintelligible and beautiful poetry of some sort.
Martin also showed is Earth OS project, he tried to boot his computer by connecting it directly into the ground. Yep.
During the second day we were working on code logic by using cups and water gates in order to make a top to bottom continuous flow of water. We then made our own “earth sound reactive” gloves by using the 555 timer which act as a microprocessor for controlling the sound output.
Holidays are meant for traveling, that’s what I did the past few weeks. After leaving Paris to travel around Bretagne, I spent some time in Switzerland before heading back to my hometown in Grenoble.
I almost forgot this feeling you have when diving into a deep forest in plain summer. Fresh.
As I grew up in a mountain range area, I used to get inspiration from all of the living entities that surrounded me. This caterpillar texture is no exception:
