Evan Grant – Making sound visible through cymatics

July 28th, 2011 // 2 Comments // Posted by Andrea

Evan Grant works with cymatics, the art of visualizing sound, and is the founder of the arts and technology collective seeper. He is exploring natural user interaction and universal computing to create multi-sensorial experiences and memories.
He is really inspiring especially in this talk, there are really just a few people who go deeper in sound science, and how sound effects our minds and body. I will search for more of these kind of articles to show how important sounds for each of our single cell in our body is and how sounds has a certain impact on materials.


Artfully visualizing our humanity

July 18th, 2011 // 1 Comment // Posted by Andrea

Presented by TED
An inspiring and exploring talk about human traffic and creativity in the Internet.
“Artist Aaron Koblin takes vast amounts of data — and at times vast numbers of people — and weaves them into stunning visualizations. From elegant lines tracing airline flights to landscapes of cell phone data, from a Johnny Cash video assembled from crowd-sourced drawings to the “Wilderness Downtown” video that customizes for the user, his works brilliantly explore how modern technology can make us more human.”

Interpol – Rest My Chemistry Video from Aaron Koblin on Vimeo.

“Participants are invited to create a drawing that is woven into a collective tribute to Johnny Cash, set to his song “Ain’t No Grave.” The project was inspired by the song’s central lyric, “ain’t no grave gonna hold my body down,” and represents Cash’s continued existence, even after his death, through his music and his fans. The work continues to grow and evolve as more people participate. A collaboration with director Chris Milk.”

March 15th, 2009 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

I know that this is a little off topic…but as i saw it i think it is really worth spreading and showing it around.
Not that i particulary share the Opinion of Mr. Enriquez on how our future will look like…i like the impulse that leads you to think ahead a little on how things could be. Take your time, watch this!
