Jen Lewin’s Pool

upclose300.jpg“The Pool” by Jen Lewin – The Pool is an environment of giant concentric circles created from interactive circular pads. By entering the pool, you enter a world where movement and direction trigger light and sound effects that bounce, collide and grow against and within the directions of others.

Each Pad, is an individual interactive glowing platform filled with controllable RBG leds and a small mp3 sound controller capable of playing up to 240 different samples. Based on a simple set of generative rules trigged by human movement, the pads can communicate with their neighbors creating dynamic patterns, colors and sounds that grow and evolve on their own.

Sonification of You

0010546.jpgInteractivity has become ambient. Individual people are no longer isolated resulting from the scaling up of networks and the scaling down of the apparatus for transmission and reception. Various communication devices always carried are continuously emitting and receiving information. This continuous data flow is both invisible and often, by the majority of people, unknown. Today’s hand-held devices that can be seen as extensions of the human body allow ubiquitous, inescapable network interconnectivity. Continue reading

Live Stage: Rider Spoke [uk London]

rider.jpgRider Spoke by Blast Theory / The Mixed Reality Lab :: October 11-21, 2007 :: Part of bite07.

Take a cycle ride in the streets around the Barbican. A games console mounted on your handlebars will guide you as you roll through the City of London. Slip down an alley and find yourself in a quiet corner. Make a recording then move on glimpsing traces of other players, eavesdropping under a bridge or from the top of a multi story car park. Rider Spoke mixes theatre and location-based games to create an interactive installation on the streets. It continues Blast Theory’s groundbreaking sequence of games where none of the usual rules apply.

Created by Blast Theory in collaboration with The Mixed Reality Lab at University of Nottingham and Sony Net Services as a part of IPerG (Integrate Project on Pervasive Games).
