Oscillate is the MFA thesis project of digital artist Daniel Sierra. The animation begins with a simple rolling sine wave. However, things quickly get complex. The waves fling dust, begin to smoke, and seem to catch fire. The waves multiply and mutate. Oscillate is an impressive animation by any standard, especially considering it is a school project (albeit an MFA thesis project).
“Tokyo City Symphony … [is] an incredible bit of projection mapping you can control on the fly, right from your computer. The interactive music video was created by Japanese creative Tsubasa Oyagi for the 10th anniversary of the Roppongi Hills mega-complex in Tokyo. But instead of using the real building as his canvas, Oyagi had an incredibly precise, 1:1000 miniature model of the city crafted by hand.
The clip above gives a nice overview of the extent of the spectacle, but the real fun comes in sequencing your own. The Tokyo City Symphony site lets you pick one of three styles—Future City, Rock City, or Edo City—and trigger sights and sounds just by punching at your QWERTY keyboard. You only have a short stretch in which to record, but the site loops the playback automatically, so you’re free to jam out as long as you like.”
Stack. A privacy focused social network. Ambitious project. I’m a bit over the increased irrelevance of my Facebook feed. I’ve given these guys some funding to see if they can make a change. Good luck to them.
