Mon passe-temps favori, c’est laisser passer le temps, avoir du temps, prendre son temps, perdre son temps, vivre à contretemps. F. Sagan



Curiosities



 



DIGITAL SKETCHBOOK Selected computational thoughts and experiments using openpose, lidar scanners, touchdesigner, photogrammetry, slitcanning, arduino and other. 











VISUALIZING SOUND: SCHLIEREN PHOTOGRAPHY Schlieren photography is a method used to visualize density variations in transparent media, or in this case, the differences in the index of air refraction. The imaging method was developed in 1864 to study supersonic motion and is now widely used in aeronautical engineering to photograph the flow of air around objects. With this method, I am attempting to visualize the invisible by using the pressure waves generated by sound.







                                

WALKING Excerpt of a 24 min video retracing the walks taken over the course of a week as a response to grief, rendered with photogrammetry in the form of a 3D walkthroug and displayed on LookingGlass. 









SEM PHOTOGRAPHY Microscopic study of a butterfly’s wing.











VIEWS FROM MY BEDROOM WINDOW A series of 3D views from my bedroom window in places I’ve called home (as seen through Google maps).









INFINITE CITIES is a generative story generator, which mimics the style of storytelling found in Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities. Through the study of text and inferences on how to tell the story of a physical and fictious space, I have made a machine which can create hundreds of new stories -- hopefully indistinguishable from the original model they are built off of.










ALYU A hypothetical large scale light-based generative installation located in the central atrium of Pittsburgh's International Airport. The installation seeks to welcome visitors to a city historically known for steel production but currently regarded as a hub for innovation and technology.  Group project by Sujan Das Shrestha, Chloé Desaulles, Yingyang Zhou & Jason Zhu.











JROD Main Stage Visuals Documentaion of concert visuals commisioned by JROD for his mainstage performance at Thrival Innovation + Music Festival. The visuals were made using slit-scanning in processing.










DEJA-VU Hand drawn animation.










METRO SKETCHES Selected sketches I did every morning on my commute from Madrid to Getafe for a duration of 4 months.
