Generative Art 2007

Friday, December 7th, 2007

I’m off to Generative Art 2007 in Milan once again this year.  I’ll be presenting a paper Theory of Complexity.  This will be the 10th anniversary of the conference so it ought to be a good one. I happened to be at the first: at the time OTI would send you to one conference a [...]

RFID Audio Bar

Monday, January 22nd, 2007

I love interactive environments. We have all this incredible sensing and computational power but so far the quality and nature of interaction in our our built environment has remained about the same. Cheap and plentiful RFID tags are a promising avenue for low fidelity sensing in a standardized package. Enter the RFID Audio Bar at [...]

Music video: Aleksandra Domanovic’s “D, E, G, A”

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

Check out Aleksandra Domanovic’s music view “D, E, G, A” (note: look for the “play” link bottom right of the header text). Very cool blend of generative image and music.

Ge-Suk Yeo – performance artist

Monday, January 8th, 2007

Generative Art Conference, Last Day

Friday, December 15th, 2006

I guess a good measure of the fun of the conference is that I’ve not had a chance to post until now, the end of the conference. I presented my paper yesteday, which was very well received. A miracle, considering how sick I felt. I was out for a few drinks the night before, really [...]

Generative Art Conference, Day 0

Tuesday, December 12th, 2006

Tonight was registration and reception, hence day “0″. Tomorrow is the start to presentations. The conference is extremely inclusive, which as its grown, is turning out to be a problem in that with all the presenters who were accepted its left us each with 15 minutes each to present, which is not really a lot [...]

Milan da’ling, Milan…

Friday, December 8th, 2006

I am off to Milan for the generative art conference to present my paper ArpEgg: a Rewriting Grammar for Complex Arpeggios! I’ll be in London before and after the conference. Why? Because I was just in Milan in the spring and I am so sick of Milan. OK not really, teehee, its just that flights [...]
