Diffraction project – online prototype

http://wip.fmotzkus.com/bb/projects/diffraction1online/
Online version of diffraction project for elastic design. The size of the black overlay depends on incoming data from the environment (quality of air, water etc.) or the individual situation and respective information from user side such as duration of time spent online. Our line of sight is disturbed and redirected to the bordering areas of the site or image. This proposal works in a reverse manner than ‚Elastic screen 1‘.
Instead of the distortion of the image or the content itself, a reactive overlay is redirecting our attention and puts emphasis on ignored but participating factors of our experience. In the example of ‚duration spent online‘ the overlay disrupts our usual ways of seeing and perceiving. In this case the direct perception of website content and related online usage; time, which could have been spent otherwise. The redirection of our line of sight and the elasticity of the format or respectively the black overlay modify our perception with consequences on our thinking and our actions.

Foucoult’s Yoyo

conceptual prototype for Foucoult’s yoyo. Basis for storyboard and 3D animation, study of movements.

Open studio, artist talk – Paris, cité des arts

Re-installment of 16 Elastic Standard Metres

at the original locations from 1791 in the city of Paris.

New installment of Elastic Standard Metres

Elastic Screen

Andrea and Frank test the app from Yoann.
Yelling at the screen distorted the image.

P&O (http://www.pocruises.com.au/) has on their website in the background left and right these flash animations. They are very relaxing (with the right music) and quite meditating. Furthermore they imply an ongoing rhythm, a moving forward, a never stand still, a constant movement of balancing … need to think how to integrate in the bigger idea about elasticity. The animation can be seen itself here as well:

Ahh, and the P&O website speaks about ‚Stretch your summer‘ …

Egg as symbol for the molecular becoming (of thoughts)

Somehow fascinated by the elastic egg. It did not survive the stress test when I tried its bouncyness. However, the shape and consistency allows for further potential. Here it’s placed on a text discussing D&G interest in molecular biology and the parallels and influences from Jacob’s The Logic of Living Systems.
