Projected computer animations are among the first works of art visitors experience in East Building. Collaborating designers, Lee Cherry and Donnie Wrights, with Associate Professor, Pat FitzGerald from the Advanced Media Lab at the North Carolina State University, College of Design created and developed several  different light and sound installations for the NCMA opening.

Above the staircase, the animation series ‘Wheels of Fortune’ displays nature imagery in parallax patterns, alongside synchronous sounds. Farther inside, visitors’ movements trigger light and sound projections onto gallery walls through an invisible interface all the while gazing at a cascading wall of images, typography and poetry in motion. In addition to the interactive events, short film animations created and produced by undergraduate students from the Art & Design program at the NCSU College of Design will be showcased in the exhibit space along the lower entrance level.

zoomRaleigh_logoZoom Raleigh is a rich interactive interface that has been installed in the window of the Urban Design Center right on Fayetteville Street.  Further refining and developing 3D interfaces for exploring urban spaces. This project is the culmination of that work along with the refinement of large touch-screen interfaces.

Zoom Raleigh is co-sponsored by the Raleigh City Museum, City of Raleigh Planning Department, American Image Graphics, and Empire Properties.

Zoom Raleigh has incorporated multi-media montages, archival materials, historic photos, and interviews with Raleigh leaders like Greg Hatem.  The result is a massive interactive screen that sits behind glass that entices passers-by to reach out and play with the interface.  Part art, and part technical feat, the work both educates the public and reinforces the technology culture of Raleigh.

Zoom Raleigh as a 3D interactive digital installation allows viewers to interact with digital media related to the history of hte arts, architecture and culture of Raleigh, NC. Featuring an interactive 3D visualization of downtown Raleigh, viewers can manipulate the digital model by rotating the city itself, selecting buildings of interest and interacting with narrated slideshows of historical photographs and text specific to selected sites.

Exploiting experimental touch and hand gesture recognition technology developed by students and staff a the Advanced Media Lab at NC State University, College of Design, this system utilizes camera recognition, back screen projection and large-scale store-front windows as display screens.  Zoom Raleigh represents a new generation in inexpensive human/computer interaction platforms that can be operated in interior/exterior urban environements.

The installation will be available from October 23 through December 31, 2009.
Location: Fayetteville Street and Hargett Street, Raleigh, NC

NSF Visualization2008 NSF / AAAS Visualization Challenge
Stop, Look, and Learn

An arresting visualization will stop us in our tracks. A revealing visualization will show us more the longer we look at it. But a winning visualization will do all of that…and help us learn something new as well. Create a science or engineering visualization that addresses all three of these elements and you could be one of this year’s recipients of the International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge awards.
Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge.

The 2008 International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge is co-sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the journal Science, published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

New Britain Museum of American Art will feature the EAT Collaboration in a NEW/NOW interactive exhibition that opened on December 16, and will be on view through Feb. 24, 2008.

EATThe EAT collaborative came together to create a visual metaphor that explores how consumerism affects the collective aesthetic. The group consists of educators, animators, advertisers and technologists. The EAT collaborative members are from North Carolina; several of them have studied at the North Carolina State University College of Design. The project is an on-going collaboration that uses cutting edge technology and design to address contemporary issues in culture.The EAT collaborative explains that the NEW/NOW piece will simulate a Japanese koi pond where fish emblazoned with advertising interact with the viewer. The animated fish change in appearance and behavior, engaging the viewer visually while delivering advertising messages.

The EAT collaborative includes Lee Cherry, Pat FitzGerald, Ted FitzGerald, David Millsaps and Amanda Robertson.

Designers + Engineers Team Up December 16, 2007

Wax and Wane sculpture

Designers + Engineers Team Up to Create High-Tech Art
Take 11 designers and four engineers, throw in some sensors and a whole lot of creativity, and what do you get? Campus art that moves, talks and lights up — all at a visitor’s command.

Students in design and electrical and computer engineering at North Carolina State University teamed up this fall to create three interactive art installations for one of the university’s newest buildings. The artwork will be unveiled at 4:30 p.m. Monday in the west atrium of Engineering Building II on the university’s Centennial Campus.

+ Follow-up Story available at Engineering News.
+ Some great photos of the design and installation progress is available here at
ncsudesign.org

One installation, dubbed “Mr. Sound,” is an experimental theater that lets the audience play an active role. Sensors connected to floor panels and poles detect when visitors are touching them, triggering individual sound tracks created by the students. The result is a chorus of sounds that can be manipulated by the visitor.

Another piece is a series of umbrella-like fans lining a staircase. Sensors detect when visitors begin climbing the stairs, telling the fans to begin spinning as the visitors approach them. Students named it “Scyphozoa (skih-foh-ZOH-ay) volubilis.”

The third installation senses when visitors come in one part of the building, prompting wood panels on an adjacent wall to open and close depending on how many people have entered the space. The panels display a blue light. The artwork is called “Wax and Wane.” (more…)
