After our first ‘Computer Vision’ class, looking for tracking applications I found this simple and nice installation.

On computer vision and body recognition

This is a simple project, in terms of application (image capturing, recognition, image projection) however it is very powerful in terms of effect, given the diversity of people that cross Market st. nevertheless the number of homeless. In a fast paced lifestyle of SF, people might not fully realize who is passing by..which is why projects like this become an eye opening experience to take a moment to stop.
Similarly, the Body Swap project, provides an even more intimate experience, for interacting with people around you :)

This is also super interesting in terms of technique, just as interesting as most of the work done by this wonderful studio

computer vision. Soak, Dye in light

“Soak, Dye in light.” by everyware (2011) is an empty canvas but when you touch it, its elastic surface stretches and gets suffused with projected vivid colors mimicking fabric absorbing dye. Poking and rubbing with hands or resting their body on this spandex canvas allows visitors to soak this canvas in virtual dye and create own patterns.

AntiMap Workshop / Data visualization

Using the Antimap application we are able to record a data file representing our journey.
The csv. file contains information such as your position ( latitude and longitude), your
orientation towards the north (compass), data representing your speed in kilometers per
hour, direction and time of the journey measured in milliseconds.
My intention was to create a visual representation of each piece of data distinctly, so it
would be easier to understand that the final trajectory contains all the above-mentioned
data. From a more narrative and static representation of each data set in the beginning
of the workshop I decided to follow more abstract way of representation, using the simple
geometry of lines and shapes, playing with colors and transparency.
The final visualization draws the lines from data points like threads, weaving each
data line into the trajectory of movement. This forms a visual fabric covering the whole
area of canvas during a period of time. I used the csv. files from two distinct sources
in order to test a diverse visual qualities, resulting in repetitive but different patterns.

What is your home’s relation with you? Is it missing you when you away, anticipate when you are coming back or turning to it’s direction? Making this exercise I’ve tried to visualize it.
