Here’s a quick preview of what to expect on the art + tech side, plus by a recap of the last event.
Maotik – Flow
FLOW is an immersive interactive installation that was premiered in the deep space 8k media display at ARS Electronica . Inspired by the natural phenomenon of the tides, the multimedia environment offers a sensory experience poetic, playful and aesthetic principles of the rise and fall of sea levels. It invites visitors to plunge into the fascinating world of science through interactive immersion.
John Edmark – Blooms
John Edmark’s mesmerizing stroboscopic 3D printed sculptures, Blooms, will be on display. The sculptures are designed to animate when spun under a strobe light and, their animation effect is achieved by progressive rotations of the golden ratio. Unlike a 3D zoetrope, which animates a sequence of small changes to objects, a bloom animates as a single self-contained sculpture.
NOS is a collaborative platform, founded by NOHLab (Candas Sisman, Deniz Kader, and Osman Koç). NOS aims for a holistic perception for sound and visuals by using a custom software which enables sound to directly effect the visuals, and becomes an instrument through the real-time manipulation capabilities that allows for artistic interpretation.
