Introduction

The SenseStage workshop is meant to bring together people from different dis-
ciplines (dance, theatre, sound, video, light) and cooperate in a collaborative
environment with interactive technologies. The workshop will take place in the
Hexagram BlackBox, a special, configurable room equipped with a full set of
theatre lights. Furthermore a multichannel sound setup and video equipment
will be available. Last but not least, a set of sensor devices with sensors will be
available for use during this workshop.

This blog is documenting the workshop process.

Paper zones

May 18th, 2009

I have made some extra nodes to deal with the data from the paper pressure pads, based on the investigations two groups made of figuring out which pad is which this morning.

First the paper sensor data is scaled from 0 to 255 (nodes 120-127) to a range between 0 and 1 (nodes 220-227).

Zone 1 consists of “paper1″ (220), “paper3″ (222), “paper4″ (223) and “paper8″ (227).
Node 230 remaps this data per node.
Node 240 remaps the data in a 4 by 6 grid.
Node 250 gives a weighted coordinate within the paper sensor in a x and y coordinate; this is a measure of the center of gravity within the zone.

Nodes 231, 241 and 251 give similar data, for zone 2, consisting of “paper5″ (224), “paper6″ (225) and “paper7″ (226).

I have yet to take into account the min-max ranges that Matt measured.

dn.node

May 18th, 2009

Sorry for introducing yet another tool for accessing the DataNetwork, but… it’s easy - trust me :)

This afternoon Brett and I made a Max abstraction called dn.node, which is now included as part of Harry’s DataNetwork tools. This one might be particularly useful for those of you who are fairly new to Max/MSP; basically you just insert the object in your patch with the node number (or numbers) as arguments, and the data starts flowing. There is no second step.

Check out the included help patch to see more. Unfortunately I won’t be around tomorrow since I have to spend the day teaching children about digital musical instruments for CIRMMT, but Brett can help you if you have any questions.

Morgan Sutherland

May 18th, 2009

I am pursuing a BFA in Computation Arts at Concordia University, focusing on responsive media systems and philosophy. I also work as a research assistant at the Topological Media Lab (TML) with Sha Xin Wei where, for the past year, I have been working with colleagues on a system to support sensor data acquisition, feature extraction, mapping, and “media choreography”. Additionally I have worked on a number of installation and performance projects with the TML and otherwise, handling camera tracking, responsive sound and video, and low-resolution display (LED) animation. I came to Concordia from a small island in the United States with six years of experience making electronic music and an interest in cognitive science. With respect to the Sense/Stage Workshop, I hope to explore rich ways of sensing and to work on my own system for condition and mapping sensor data (in Max/Jitter) using Marije and Joe’s systems as inspiration. I will be available to lend technical advice to more than one project, so if you have questions, feel free to ask.

Patrick Harrop

May 17th, 2009

Patrick Harrop is a licensed architect and associate professor of Architecture at the University of Manitoba. Professor Harrop received his undergraduate architecture degree from Carleton University, School of Architecture and his post professional M.Arch degree from the History and Theory program at McGill University in Montreal. He is currently a phd candidate in the Humanities Interdisciplinary program at Concordia University.

His research specialty is in design and digital manufacturing technology. He currently holds the CMRI Chair in Masonry Studies and is the initiator of the Centre for Digital Formation and Visualization at the University of Manitoba.  Professor Harrop currently teaches graduate studios in “time based architecture”, contemporary theory, light and acoustics and advanced computer / manufacturing technology and responsive architecture. Pneuma, an electronic artist collective of Peter Hasdell and Patrick Harrop has exhibited in Montreal, Winnipeg and Shanghai.

My interest in this workshop comes from several perspectives.  (much less ambitious now than described below)
I am interested in developing work based on an expanding scale of related nodes in an environmental setting. From an architectural perspective, this would be to develop a membrane condition over top of architectural substrates complimentary to existing active and passive networks that already form a significant (and long standing) repertoire of environmental mediation. The intent is to develop a further network, with a specific interest in data generated from use and environments both within building systems and external to them, and outside of the canon of traditional architectural sciences. The scales can vary and should be rather flexible from urban, to building to corporeal and to micro scale. As well, this flexibility in scalar metering should carry multicolor and asymmetrical conditions.

As a further layering of architectural substrate, I consider these network nodes to be ornamental (in the traditional sense). This is viewed both in the understanding of ornament as being actuator (a mediator of light, sound etc.) and as a sensor (witness, listener and sensible body). From a material and design perspective, this implies a further level of consideration of the sensor node as an intentional artifact to be crafted and made with artistic intent. Hence, my interest extends beyond the application of existing electronics to surface and substrate to the actual and suggested materiality (and immateriality) of these sensor / actuators. As a consequence I wish to develop work that explores the potential of sensate materials as a palate of architectural expression: this includes but is not limited to conductive materials, voltage regulation etc.

The electronic and sensate qualities of these nodes also have a potential to extend the physical ornamentation into an immaterial realm of energetic expression (heat, electromagnetism and sound). This recalls a sensibility of understanding architectural ornament as a grotesque or monstrous expression of a static form into the realm of the temporal mediation of space and environment. Again, drawing on the network, it is my intention to examine temporal and rhythmic scales of light and sound composition in dialogue with these ornaments.

Shannon Collis

May 17th, 2009

My name is Shannon Collis, and I am currently a student in the Graduate Certificate program in Digital Technologies at Concordia and will be continuing at the Masters level in the Special Individualized Program in September.

My current research interests are in the area of auditory perception and the role of sound in shaping our experience of the everyday environment. My work explores how sensory input—incidental and commonplace sounds—reveal themselves and contribute to our experience of place. Investigations into the theory of everyday life (DeCerteau, Lefebvre and Perec) have informed my work as well as research into pervasive technologies and how their embeddedness into our lives casts new light on theories of the everyday.

In one of my recent projects- I have been working in my dinning room and kitchen with sensors, microphones, and a multiple channel sound system. Over the past month, I have been able to process and amplify sound in real time according to activity measured from sensors distributed throughout these rooms (located on the floor, under cabinets, on appliances, tables, walls, etc.) I have spent many hours living in this setup, experiencing the rhythms and patterns of everyday life amplified and altered according to my movements and behaviors (and also the behaviors of other participants)–for example, as part of the project, I hosted a ‘listening party’ –a dinner party where guests were invited to experience this setup.

Intense Movement (Shannon, Matti, Nick, Daniel)

May 17th, 2009

Context: 20 minutes or so spent exploring the dynamics and qualities of different types of intense sensed movement.

We began by describing different dynamics and qualities of intense movement.
We discussed the movements of animals and found the naturalness (the unintentional execution) of these movements attractive in that there are inherent ordering principles expressed through them.

We listed some sources of normal motion:
Bird Fluttering
Light flickering rhythm and physical displacement of Fireflies, a natural network of syncronized entities
Stomping of an elephant
Human body walking normally

We next discussed some sensor applications permitting the mapping of natural movements.
The Interpretation of patterns could be facilitated through the enhancement of minimal cues (movement, light, sound) and their subsequent AMPLIFICATION.
Where? BioDome?
The interest of using Cross modalities of input vs. output to further “enhance” the sensor data’s delivery included translating:
Light to Movement
Movement to Sound (ex: wind)
Sound to Light
One to one mapping was suggested.
Who is this for? This is primarily for the Viewer.
