Close up Media

Posted on Posted in MA Creative Media Arts

As discussed in a previous post the immersive installation is going to contain and reflect aspects of human characteristics including visual imagery. Some initial experimentation was made into testing some close up shots of eyes regarding this. It’s felt that the eyes could convey a striking and emotive imagery capturing the audience’s attention through a personal and scary connection. The success of this has inspired an extra experimentation into additional features such as mouths. Mouths are far more interesting than […]

Tactile Media Box Creation

Posted on Posted in MA Creative Media Arts

Based off the work investigating immersive installations and portable projection media. My exploration into the medium of projection has been influenced and inspired an interest in embodied interaction, tactile media and surrealism. As a result of working with a medium and technology creating a movable devices the aspects of tactility became more apparent. The object itself had to be more significant to the overall installation. The impact of the work needs to be stunning in capturing the attention of the […]

Eyes Experiments

Posted on Posted in MA Creative Media Arts

Working on an immersive installation the content and context of the piece needs to be impacting and powerful enough to capture and hold audiences attention. From personal literature exploration and artistic inspiration I have been looking at the early 15th century painting  The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch. The painting is particularly inspirational to me as I love the imaginative but contextual meaning of the piece, including its surreal nature of expression. Seeing the piece as a young artist it captured my […]

Revealing The Hidden Reality

Posted on Posted in MA Creative Media Arts

As part of the mini project, I’m working on a portable light immersive installation relating to aspect of embodiment and interaction. The aspect of augmented reality which I’m most interested in is revealing the hidden underlying reality. Augmented reality affords a mixing of perceptual reality and digital reality that creates a sense of immersion which is controlled and manipulated with the digital aspect.  As part of the installation, I have been working on immersing and transcending audiences to another reality using the projections. By projecting […]

Portable Electronic Media

Posted on Posted in MA Creative Media Arts

Going portable is an idea which has been running for a while based on some exploration into portable projection tools. Through some experimentation with different projectors and portable technologies an interest prospective idea emerged. Projectors have always been limided by the need for a contant power sourseand this portability is new and exciting apectect emerging in the augmented reality industry. The unique properties of moving image and portable light technology could produce a immersive light instlation in the correct application. Workin with new […]

Round and Round in Circles

Posted on Posted in MA Creative Media Arts

One aspect as artists I have struggled with is pinning down ideas on a project.  I have a fantastic ability to develop new ideas and engineer new perspectives through technology by experimenting and, however pinning down an idea myself with a contextual expressed reasoning proves difficult in so respects. A way that I combat this is to note ideas in a notebook and develop mind maps to plot out ideas. This helps me to structure the constantly changing ideas that evolve very quickly […]

SocketIO is a web socket library designed to transmit and transfer data over web applications. On recent projects I have been reaching out connecting a range of different technologies using them in new and interesting was as seen in university projects. as partly of connecting devices together SocketIO has provided a way of instantly transmitting signals between different applications such as IOS, openFramworks and web application. NodeJs has been key in running a web application which can handle different requests and emit data back. IOS […]

Using openFrameworks

Posted on Posted in MA Creative Media Arts

openFrameworks is an open source development software which has been around for a few years based off C++ coding language. The software in recent years has started to lose its following, however many modern visual graphic programs use parts of its core elements. openFrameworks is also cross platform meaning it runs directly in the interface of the computer, therefore an exported program will look like any other program on a Mac, Windows and Linux based PC. Additionally, it runs on other devices such […]

Work With Raspberry Pi

Posted on Posted in MA Creative Media Arts

Raspberry Pi has taken the computer and education market by storm with the viability of learning programming and hardware development from a tiny portable device. The Pi is in constant re-development with some major advancements being made in the last few years including the Pi 3 and Pi Zero. The platform has allowed developers to explore hardware, software and language development on a cheap consumer product that is powerful and has no system limitations like Macs. This has allowed developers to explore new technologies and […]
