Julian Oliver - TEDxRotterdam 2010

The Artvertiser: Improved Reality Platform

The Artvertiser source code is now available, licensed under the GPLv3. It is an Improved Reality platform, designed for the live substitution of advertisements in a video stream with alternative 2D content. The code was initially developed by Julian Oliver before being significantly improved by Damian Stewart.

A typical application of The Artvertiser at work might be the Product Replacement of street billboards with 2D art using a laptop with webcam or camera-enabled mobile device. You might also want to have your own personal exhibition in the Louvre, substituting well known paintings with your own creations and inviting others to enjoy the show. Counter-propaganda operations are also well suited to the platform, like changing the imagery of a disliked political campaigner before uploading the recorded result for all to see. Alternatively, it can be used to product replace planar images in archival video, like a Hollywood movie or TV advert, using popular films as an ‘exhibition surface’. Continue reading

“I am unable to tell you” by Benjamin Dean

Turbulence Commission: I am unable to tell you by Benjamin Dean [Needs webcam]:

I am unable to tell you is an experiment in collective solipsism. It’s about leaving your fingerprints on the glass you were trying to clean. It’s only someone else’s experience. It’s about the closure property of sets. It’s just the referents. It’s depth-first search. It’s about being face to face. It’s about not talking. It’s turtles all the way down.

BIOGRAPHY: Ben Dean makes many different things for many different reasons. He considers art a form of experimentation, believes science to be a way of discovering beauty, and thinks engineering is just plain fun. Ben was educated at Yale University, and lives in Brooklyn. He is always interested in collaboration, and would love to hear from you. Email Ben at bddbbd.b [at]

“WWW-Enabled Noise Toy” by Loud Objects

Turbulence Commission: WWW-Enabled Noise Toy by Loud Objects (with funds from the Jerome Foundation):

Loud Objects, NYC-based circuit sorcerers, present a wacky way to learn hardware audio programming. The WWW-Enabled Noise Toy invites anyone with a web browser to write their own audio code, program it remotely onto a Noise Toy, and play it live via webcam. In the spirit of “try it yourself” software demos, the website provides a simple environment for experimenting with low-level microchip-generated audio. Load code from the Loud Objects’ own library of performance algorithms, hone your own noise techniques, and add your work to the online archive to share it with other microchip coders and create an open source noise community.
