Decibel Festival Optical Showcase 2 Huminary.
For this show I have built the most technologically advanced and state of the art concert-specific piece that I am aware of.  Depth tracking with the Kinect V2 and the Cinder graphics library allows unprecedented levels of control and connection with the artist.  I am so excited to unveil my work, this collection of sketches and experiments, at 6pm on Thursday, September 25th at Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall [200 University St., Seattle].

""Processing seeks to ruin the careers of talented designers by tempting them away from their usual tools and into the world of programming and computation. similarly, the project is designed to turn engineers and computer scientists to less gainful employment as artists and designers."

Featured Curator of the Week: Philip Intile [pi-slices]
Yancy Way, known as echophon, lives in Seattle, Washington. He began creating animated and generative art just under a year ago but had been drawing and painting before that. To Yancy, art is a vital human experience, a universal language. Yancy is inspired by nature, ancient cultures, geometry, design and modern art. He creates his art using Processing with the HYPE Framework, though he will occasionally use other tools and mediums.

Thanks pi-slices!

Ecstatic Computation
Thesis project by Michael P Allison explores the possibility of merging spiritual and technological ideas in a VR experience / performance - video embedded below:


Ecstatic Computation is a technoshamanic virtual reality ritual that addresses the intersection of spirituality and computation.
Traditionally, computers and computation are just tools used by humans to accomplish complex digital tasks. Some of us now live in a world where the social and personal role of computation is playing an inextricable part in our lives. Computation is a window, a portal through which we see information, see entertainment, do our work and experience each other. Computers now create amazingly immersive screen-based experiences—I almost forget about the hardware entirely. That, however, is the root of my inquiry: what does it mean for me to spend so much time with this device what is my relationship to it?
