Pinokio is a ‘self-aware’ lamp that was created utilizing Processing, Arduino, and OpenCV.

“Pinokio is an exploration into the expressive and behavioural potentials of robotic computing. Customized computer code and electronic circuit design imbues Lamp with the ability to be aware of its environment, especially people, and to expresses a dynamic range of behaviour. As it negotiates its world, we the human audience can see that Lamp shares many traits possessed by animals, generating a range of emotional sympathies. In the end we may ask: Is Pinokio only a lamp? – a useful machine? Perhaps we should put the book aside and meet a new friend.”

“This is a direct video output from the iPad’s HD screen which generates the animation in realtime at 1024×768. It’s based on my previous animations and ‘Zio’ – my iPhone app. It’s created by complex algorithms and random generation, so you never get the exact same animation everytime you run it.”

The video was produced by codemaster Glenn Marshall with music by Brian Eno.

Martin Fuchs and Philip Whitfield are both students at Hyperwerk in Basel. Undef is their collaborative experimental efforts in 3D and Processing. Equally interesting and unique.

This is a video for an artist called ‘Caelum’ (Released in 2008 on Aroundtherecords, JP). You can visit their MySpace page here.

I have no idea really how this video was created. I am assuming by some kind of generative processing. I was really impressed by the visuals though. Beautiful.

Thank you for the email Steph.

Radiohead has partnered with Aniboom and is currently holding a contest to create a 1 minute animated video using any of the songs off of Radiohead’s current album, In Rainbows. Robert Hodgin from Flight 404 decided to toss his hat in the ring with the beautiful bit of animation created with Processing above.

Solar from flight404 on Vimeo.

Robert Hodgin was creating experimental art for Flash under the monicker Flight 404 back when you were a stain in your Daddy’s pants. He has since moved on to do some groundbreaking work with Processing. His newest animation series Magnetic and Solar is mind bending and even more so when accompanied by music from The Flashbulb.
