ORB is a work commissioned by Juha van Ingen. The installation turns ordinary street sign post into a pedestal for a virtual sculpture.
The website shows lightning strikes on a map, and it is based on the real time lightning strike data by the Finnish Meteorological Institute. It is also possible to play the lightning strikes as a melody, which is based on the properties of the lightning strikes.
A piece of music which is based on an improvised session over the soundtrack of the lightning strikes: R Dimensio – Salamatar
I’ve been lucky to work with Ensæmble. Not only to create this showcase website for them, but also earlier in 2015 I collaborated with them to create a data driven dance piece. I was more than happy to help to realise the website to the specifications of Ensaemble. It is made of five triptychs, and the individual images change at randomly chosen specified intervals. Take a look!
International Teletext Art Festival website needed to be transformed into a responsive WordPress site. Besides being the main site for the festival it presents the works by the artists in a virtual gallery.
A unique custom WordPress theme was created from the ground up.
The artists wanted there to be two paths, which in practice meant two sequences of dozens of images side by side on the screen. The images are animated gifs, and the player advances on the path by pressing keyboard buttons.
The images are accompanied by a sound track, realized by selected sound artists. The sounds loop independently from the images, and the player is able to stop or play a sound. The sound selection also advances sequentially, and maximum of two sounds can be heard at the same time.
The main challenge is to see all of the animations and reach the end. The player is also able to create a combination of images and sounds, and thus become a creator in the process.
