and 2012 starts with another presentation of fatto in casa, with one of my mentors, jorge crowe. we’ll be performing in the panoramica festival, at the espacio fundación telefonica, in buenos aires (arenales 1540), on saturday, march 10th, at 7pm. expect a few improvements on the visuals this time: audiovisual sync via arduino + pduino, toys that get lit when in use over the jugetomatica (the interface i use for the realtime visual remix), and a few things more
please visit the official website of the event for more info:
if you are not aware of the modified toys that are occupying buenos aires (ok, just an opportunist joke), you will now have four chances to meet them. jorge crowe and i will be presenting the live audiovisual performance fatto in casa in several opportunities in the next few days at the capital of the porteños.
for those who don’t know the perfomance, fatto in casa explores the re-use and modification of old toys and objects as an audiovisual platform. jorge plays the soundscapes with a huge set of little frankensteins, while i modify video images taken from his set in real time, using a very improvised prototype based on the reactable project. we’ve already presented the performance two times earlier this year, and we invite you to check out the next toy attacks!
finally, on saturday, december 17th, we’ll be performing at the 3rd edition of the well known dorkbot. the time of the performance is still to be announced, so stay tuned in this blog or in my facebook.
below are some images from our first two performances in september of this year, in the festival de narrativas hiper/textuales and in one of the sintomática parties. i shall soon be posting a little video taken from these two presentations.
it’s with great pleasure i tell you i’ll be performing with jorge crowe on september 10th, doing some live imaging for his performance and “artronics” fatto in casa. it’s gonna be a double night: first presentation takes place at the seminario de narrativas hiper/textuales, in centro cultural recoleta, at 8pm. after that, we’ll be heading to the centro cultural zaguán, and perform againg at 1am of sunday in the sintomatica party.
well, hope to see you there! below is a video from the performance jorge did in panoramica, in march 2011, at the espacio telefonica.
from august 25th to 28th, i’ll be at la cúpula media lab, in córdoba, argentina, for one more workshop. this time we will be using puredata as a tool for generating realtime images, a technique that can be applied to many different transmedia experiments in drama, cinema, performance, dance, vjing and so on. the program of the workshop is described below:
> discussion of the platform: what is puredata and what can it do?
> pd and libraries installation (a walkthrough in mac os and linux);
> intro to the patch metaphor / non-linear programming;
> intro to GEM/openGL;
> exercise 1: loading and displaying a video in GEM;
> exercise 2: puredata video mixer;
> exercise 3: realtime image filters;
days 3 and 4
> exercise 4: openCV – computer vision and puredata – face and other visual pattern identification;
> exercise 5: how to use arduino and puredata to modify images;
to leave you with an example of possibilities we will be discussing during the workshop, below there’s a video of a play i worked on with ricardo palmieri, gabriel camelo and the group les commediens tropicales. the multimedia scenery was made by using projection mapping techniques, with a combination of puredata and vpt (programmed by palm). hope to see you in córdoba!
