NeoLucida (Long Edit) - (Note, this is not the Kickstarter video, which is about 1 minute shorter.) We have designed the NeoLucida: the first portable camera lucida to be manufactured in nearly a century — and the lowest-cost commercial camera lucida ever designed. We want to make this remarkable device widely available to students, artists, architects, and anyone who loves to draw from life. But to be clear: our NeoLucida is not (just) a product, but a provocation. In manufacturing a camera lucida for the 21st century, our primary aim is to stimulate interest in media archaeology—the tightly interconnected history of visual culture and imaging technologies.

Wake Me When It’s Better - Part of Art Hack Day “God Mode” at 319 Scholes, this installation was imagined as a sort of cryogenic photobooth – capturing your ragged likeness for posterity. Using 3D sensors it captures your bust, dropping it crudely onto a shifting pile of other figures. It was created during Art Hack Day 2013 by James George & Alexander Porter using the RGBDToolkit SDK and Unity. It is made with two Xtion Pro depth sensors and a 5D MkII DSLR. Music: “Cyclatron” from Bye Bye by Domotic. http://bit.ly/1bJahUjhttp://bit.ly/tVxoZxhttp://bit.ly/JB6kGC
Hello World! Processing - Hello World! Processing is a documentary on creative coding that explores the role that ideas such as process, experimentation and algorithm play in this creative field featuring artists, designers and code enthusiasts. Based on a series of interviews to some of the leading figures of the Processing open programming platform community, the documentary is built itself as a continuous stream of archived references, projects and concepts shared by this community. It is the first chapter of a documentary series on three programming languages -Processing, Open Frameworks y Pure data- that have increased the role of coding in the practice of artists, designers and creators around the world. The series explores the creative possibilities expanded by these open source tools and the importance of their growing online communities. See more information at http://bit.ly/15V9nEa
The Drowning of Echo - The Drowning of Echo is an interpretation of the Transformation of Echo & the story of Narcissus from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. In a modern context, the fable offers insight into the relationship between narcissism and narcosis: the numbing effects of self-perception. We drew this association from Chapter 4 of Marshall McLuhan’s Understanding Media: http://bit.ly/13sUZS6 Shot in December of 2011, The Drowning of Echo is one of the first experiments we recorded using with the RGBDToolkit depth filmmaking technique. We were curious to explore how the format would interact with different settings and materials. Completed May 2013, it premiered along with three other works as part of a one night show at Brooklyn Photo Studio. It incorporates experimental customizations to the Toolkit, such as specular relighting and crepuscular rays.
