It was very interesting to work with an app that include: Augmented Reality (Vuforia), Image Recognition (online and off line), a community of images, Core Data database, interaction log and Google Analytics.
I was mumbling on the relation of art aesthetics in interactive art: cause when i was at Fabrica, my creative director pushed everybody to work on a kind of retro gaming aesthetic, (which i like) but, inspired by Yougop, i was interested to mix with Rembrandt paintings to see the result: While experimenting design and Cinder framework. We prepare this video for an roman indie band called I Demoni; coding a custom software able to filter quicktime movies. We edit footage filtered and re-edit. The filtering software was able to receive keyboard inputs to have effects on the current frame filter and animation so to have easily differently effects with the same script; It wasn’t running in realtime but with some delay.
While doing research on Jogl and Processing, Stilo’s Studio develop a visualizer that converts a tune’s beats and harmony into visual algorithms. The idea I was working on was to divide the frequency values of the Audio Frame with a FFT in 8 portions, with any portion represented by a circle of 256 values. These circles where in turned placed in a circle, and reacted to the beat. Here below are some screenshots of the graphic output:
And a video (sorry for the bad quality but the animation is too flickering and fast for the H264):
Stilo’s Studio was involved, together with London-based Kaos Europe, in developing an interactive video installation for LG Mobile, during the London Freeze. The aim of the project was to draw spectators to the LG experiential area and promote LG mobile phones’ easy access to social networks in a credible and fun way.
Stilo’s Studio created a custom software that aggregated in real time all the messages on the net donning the LG London Freeze hash tag. The installation, with its visually striking interface, was displayed on a big screen within the experiential area, called the LG Hub, and it literally made the LG Hub the privileged area to live an enhanced experience of the event, both live and socially.
