inkscapes

Interactive drawing performance designed for the 120 by 11 feet video wall at the InterActive Corps (IAC) building in New York, created in collaboration with DI Shin.

inkscapes02

The content of the installation is dynamic and different every time it runs: three artists create it live, by drawing on an iPad that scales their sketches to the unexpected magnitude of the giant screen. The narrative is guided through the dialog between performers and the system itself, which evolves and transforms the drawings over time.

Create your own story on sStory

The goal is to make responsive magazine feature style mini-sites as easily as possible.

Sstory

The sStory component is a story viewer that displays the text of stories and tagged entities and concepts. Each story is related to “is-about” concepts, related named entities and other related stories. Each “is-about” concept and named entity found in the story is tagged by a GATE process pipeline. Normally this tagging is performed using the currently active domain ontology and dictionaries of named entities that are most likely to be part of these stories.
Related concepts and named entities can be highlighted in the story’s text and related stories can be explored. A search feature has been implemented in the component, along with a full-screen mode. However, due to full-screen limitations in Flex, the search feature is disabled in full-screen mode.

Rome-zegenesis

“3 Dreams of Black” is an interactive film by Chris Milk and some friends at Google that showcases the creative potential of WebGL. WebGL is a context of the HTML5 canvas element that enables hardware-accelerated 3D graphics in the web browser without a plug-in. In other words, it enables your browser to show some really beautiful visuals. On this page, you’ll find a WebGL model viewer featuring several of the “3 Dreams of Black” creatures. You’ll also find 8 demos created by our development team, a link to the code base, and some links to resources on the web that will be useful for getting started in WebGL programming.

Voyage au bout du charbon – Web Documentary

An educational webdocumentary that lets viewers investigate the world of Chinese coal miners who risk their lives in state-owned and private coal plants. 300 photographs and many hours of video and sound were used to create a striking immersive environment.


Voyage au bout du charbon - zgenesis

There are some places in this world you may wish they never existed. Some places just like the dark lands of Shanxi, China.

Not only is this place known for its alarmous pollution problems and corruption scandals but it is today’s most dangerous coal mining region in the whole world, killing more people every year than anywhere else totaled. A scandalous situation half a million miners are facing there, often resigned to the fact they have no choice but to risk their life if they want to make a decent living.

This story begins in Datong which is located just a couple hours away West from Beijing. You travel from there all around the region and visit its major coal mines, from the “best” state-owned complex to the worst private ones.

In and around the coal mines, you will get the story first hand from the mingong, the rural migrants traveling their country looking for work. At your own pace and will, you meet them at their home, at the Church, on the road, or at work. You hear about how they live their life in this valley of death and pollution, sometimes even literally bumping into them as they leave their home for their night shift, in the frozen winter of Northern China.

Ultimately, you might discover China forbidden mines in which happens most of the accidents and interview its survirvors.
