Lost In Uncanny Valley

That’s what I call my current visual explorations. There’s something endlessly fascinating to me in these 3D humanoid characters and their movements so I will definitely continue to explore this theme through animations, VJ performances etc. Here’s a few animated GIFs (I hope they play in your browser) plus a video from a recent performance in Copenhagen as a part of Obscura – the group of people I’m working with. Live music performance by ir (aka. Jonas Olesen), visuals by Udart. Copenhagen 2012

Using Unity3D for mapping

The above video documents a recent project Obscura did. Actually I was mostly on another project at the time but I followed with great interest the work that my colleagues Frederik and Kasper did here. For all of us this installation was a learning experience in using Unity 3D for mapping onto a spherical object. It took a bit of trial and error but Frederik and Kasper decided to make a workshop out of it instead of worrying too much about the finished result. They ended up with these little creatures created in Open Frameworks which were piped into Unity 3D via Syphon. They then made a Unity app for mapping onto the sphere. A regular 3D mapped rendering would not do here, as the small boids react to the presence of people in the room via a motion tracking camera. Using Unity went resonably well – it has a […]

A couple of pics from my current project

My current project is an experimantal short film. I had the idea one day looking at an orchid in the window sill. I have used no post processing tricks just the plant and some visuals beamed onto it with the video projector. The visuals were made with eMotion,  the QC patch Soundflower and a particle screensaver. I hope to be able post the film soon although my little baby girl keeps pushing my personal deadline for when it should be ready. That’s okay – these days I only do projects with a very flexible time frame. [nggallery id=1]
