Slightly Structured Visual Noise

Visuals by Andrew Ringler mimic-ing the Cirque Noir Elephant on Ball logo reacting to sounds by Know Thyself by Aphrohead and Clarian from Founders of Filth Volume One Felix Da Housecat

“Slightly Structured Visual Noise” is a constantly evolving visual experience running throughout the evening at Cirque Noir X Houston X Scorpion (November 10th 2018) reacting to the DJ’s music live. “Slightly Structured Visual Noise” runs unattended as an autonomous agent-based model taking cues from the DJ’s sound in addition to following beautiful semi-harmonious gradient noise spaces like ridged multifractal, Perlin, Voronoi and spherical.

I created a set of sound-reactive Processing sketches that played throughout the evening generating unique and ever-changing visuals on multiple screens, walls and surfaces always reacting to the ever changing DJ’s beats.

Video-2-Slit-Scan App

Video-2-Slit-Scan Quick Demo.

Video-2-Slit-Scan is an App I created that allows you to create a slit-scan image from a video. It provides a graphical interface for adjusting slit position and size. Video-2-Slit-Scan can support very large videos with modest RAM since it streams in the input video and writes out the output image to disk in chunks.

Download on Github.

Tangible Programming

The Tangible Programming project was created as the result of a collaboration between Anthony Baker (Harvard Graduate School of Education), Scott Penman (MIT Architecture Design + Computation), and myself during Hiroshi Ishii’s Tangible Interface course at MIT in the Fall of 2015. We decided to use the already existing Transform table Ishii’s lab had already built to create a tactile programming language.
