ICM – Final Project

The outcome of the ICM final project is a kinect-sound-based sketch. I’ve always been curious about the intersection between sound and images and what their combination could generate. Processing definitely allows these kind of interactions to happen and it creates room for experimentation as it offers an almost instantaneous response. This sketch is an attempt […]

Untitled

One sentence, what is it? A sketch to record a dance performance, that reacts to sound and image. How did you become interested in it? I feel it is important to add sound to an image as it brings in a factor that can’t be directly controlled and adds a lot to the outcome. The […]

For ICM’s final project, I plan on working with Kinect + Minim. This will combine two of the tools I have been using the most. I feel it is important to add sound to an image as it brings in a factor that can’t be directly controlled and adds a lot to the outcome. The sketch […]

Variation of previous work. Now, instead of a continuous changing sketch, the drawing remains on the screen. The FFT analysis is responsible for defining each R,G and B values. code is here.

ICM » week 3

  For this week’s sketch, I thought of working with sound. Since I’ve worked before with the Minim Library and FFT analysis that wasn’t a problem. It was a good place to start dealing with creating functions and the ‘for’ loop though. Next week I’ll try to work on a sketch with the same principles, […]

Tap the Keyboard!

ICM // Week 2 collaboration with Jacob Wasserman! We worked on a little sketch under the influence of the amazing Patatap. TAP keys “1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0”  //   “B” change the background   // “E” circle // “T” triangle // “L” Lines // Click and drag to create random shapes Turn on your favourite song and pretend to […]

ICM .: First Assignment

For this first assignment I just tried to put on a Brazilian Flag made on Processing, only using 2D shapes and some basic syntax to generate the drawing. At the beginning I thought this would go really smooth but (fortunately) I came across a few obstacles. Drawing the background and the diamond shape was pretty […]
