Almost forked

Comments Off

While An prepared the presentation about Constant & Lab2Lab for the Marginalia team, Dorothé & Lot had been spending a day working without objscrs, imagining yet another emergency score.
Some in between shots:

On Monday 4th July we were all four present in BH: Dorothé, Matthias, Lot & An. We decided to play, whatever machines we had to use for it. It was An’s last day. She promised to write a ‘testimony’ about her stay in BH that would somehow be integrated in the final presentation.
Here it is: http://www.adashboard.org/coLAPseKoDe_games/marginalia/almost_forked.html

@ circus Suspensa

Comments Off

With the help of Marginalia+Lab Dorothe visited a lot of different work spaces in Belo Horizonte; one was not high enough, another was only available 2 x 3hs/week. In the end she chose the theatre in construction of the circus company Suspensa. They are situated in a charming ‘red’ village at 30 minutes by car from the city.

Pierre left Brasil when An arrived, leaving the machine in a fine & properly functioning state. But it seemed he had taken his particular karma with him, because when Dorothe & An tried to boot the machine with objscrs, the camera stayed liveless.

4 new ways of tracking

Comments Off

The participants of the Workshop Motion Tracking Traces imagined collectively different ways of representing the tracking. They made annotations of their ideas that Pierre introduced as literally as possible into the code.
Thanks to all the participants and to Pierre who burned his brain!! Read the rest of this post

Motion Tracking Traces – Workshop- 16,17,18/06

Comments Off

Motion tracking is based on the analysis of differences between images in a video input. We’ll propose an exploration of how these differences are built in OBJSCRS, then trace new paths from the video input to the actual motion tracker.

Often kept as an internal object in motion tracking applications, the resulting data structure of the tracking process will constitute the subject of the second part of the workshop. We’ll build visualizations out of this data structure, whether on screen or in any other possible form.

At this point, we’ll play with the specific way the program deals with event triggering by means of scores. OBJSCRS offers a large variety of possible responses to motion tracking, using it to trigger different features, from video overlay to arithmetic operations. We’ll dedicate this last part of the workshop at writing new scores, and possibly new objects, which will be played by the program in interaction with attendees.
