Apparati Effimeri – Mapping On Trees

Apparati Effimeri – Mapping On Trees: “

A quanto pare sembra sia una delle nuove frontiere che sta esplorando chi si occupa di video mapping. Mi riferisco alle proiezioni su elementi naturali come alberi piante e fiori. A riprova basta ricordare il mapping video interattivo di Kimichi and Chips o anche il video clip realizzato da Dirk Rauscher. Il filmato del post è la 3D projection di Apparati Effimeri tenutasi al giardino botanico di Bologna.

Nervous System [Profile, Cinder, Processing]

Nervous System [Profile, Cinder, Processing]: “

Nervous System is a small collective founded in 2007 by Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg with aim to create innovative products using physical and computer based algorithmic tools. Jessica Rosenkrantz graduated from MIT in 2005 and holds degrees in Architecture and Biology. Jesse Louis-Rosenberg also attended MIT, majoring in Mathematics. He previously worked as a consultant for Gehry Technologies building modeling and design automation. Mixed backgrounds have allowed the team to deploy innovative approaches to product design resulting in objects that are both engaging visually and in the process they were created.

The diversity of output ranges from jewellery to furniture generally inspired by nature – decay, cell formations, recursion, landscape. Using Processing, MeshLab and most recently Cinder, most products relish the complexity aesthetic resulting in intricate creations made by the machines – 3d printers/laser cutters/CNC, etc. Seen as methods for output, the team employs computer algorithms to derive and extract still forms. Driven mainly by aesthetics, these objects are beautiful, unique, made in porcelain,  stainless steel, wood, nylon, wool felt, rubber and more.
