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.
