unnamed-soundsculpture-2

by Daniel Franke and Cedric Kiefer:

The basic idea of the project is built upon the consideration of creating
a moving sculpture from the recorded motion data of a real person. For
our work we asked a dancer to visualize a musical piece (Kreukeltape by
Machinenfabriek) as closely as possible by movements of her body. She was
recorded by three depth cameras (Kinect), in which the intersection of the
images was later put together to a three-dimensional volume (3d point cloud),
so we were able to use the collected data throughout the further process.
The three-dimensional image allowed us a completely free handling of the
digital camera, without limitations of the perspective. The camera also reacts
to the sound and supports the physical imitation of the musical piece by the
performer. She moves to a noise field, where a simple modification of the
random seed can consistently create new versions of the video, each offering
a different composition of the recorded performance. The multi-dimensionality
of the sound sculpture is already contained in every movement of the dancer,
as the camera footage allows any imaginable perspective.

history of typography.

history-of-typography

I am in love with fonts.  In a different life, i would sit in a studio all day designing fonts.   I am perpetually looking at fonts: on signs, on websites, in films, on cars, on badging, on artwork, in books, in magazines, old, new, ugly, beautiful—they just fascinate me!

Here’s a wicked and creative video flashing the history of typography in  5 minutes, by Ben Barrett-Forest:

all images taken at different times through different eyes connected to the same mind (IEDEI).

You’re just a spy too, as far as I know.

Deconstructed.

Todd McLellan does  some really cool deconstructions and shows the extraordinary detail of things we consider ‘ordinary’.   He has some videos on his site as well…so make sure you check them out.

origins of IEDEI (2004-2007)

Far before IEDEI was turned into a car blog, (then subsequently shut as that) there was a series of photographs I was putting together between 2004 and 2007 for which I was using the “IEDEI” label.  There were supposed to be 1000 of them (youthful overambition), however in the end only 15 or 20 were made.   Photography, however, is about to make its way back to me big time in the next few weeks and months—with a purchase of a very special camera!

Here are some of those “original” IEDEI photos taken between 2004 and 2007….and displayed with various iterations of the IEDEI logo—-some cool, some not so much!  Either way, they are inspiring to the future of this site and remind me of what originally started the site.

art of the day. Dynamism of an Automobile

1912 painting by fantastic Futurist painter Luigi Rossolo entitled “Dinamismo di un’Automobile”.  Futurist paintings are often just stunning, and this one is no exception!

Russolo was also famous for introducing sound experimentation into the Futurist art movement—-actually performing concerts in 1914 using boxes and sound sources—leading to arguably the first experimental ‘noise’ concert. Apparently their Milan show ended in fighting and a bit of a riot.  World’s first punk show? Sounds like it.

Where is the secret spot?

Well I have to say I am entirely intrigued by these “Secret Spot” pics posted over at Type-01.  If this is a single location; what kind of a location will have the combination of cars seen in this pic?  More mysteriously—–what are those two Bugatti concepts doing there!?!?  I would think those 2 concepts would be under the ownership of Bugatti/VAG.  I don’t recall them ever being produced for private ownership.  Hmm.

Beautiful greyscale photos as well.
