“Luzes relacionais” (Relational Lights) is an interactive audio-visual installation that explores our relationship with the expressional-organic character of space. The installation uses light, sound, haze, and a custom-software system to create a morphing, three-dimensional light-space in which spectators actively participate, manipulating it with their presence and movements. The work functions as a living organism with or without the presence and interactions of spectators. When viewers step outside the projected light-space, the system begins its own dialogue with space by means of extruding and morphing sequences of geometric light forms. And when viewers penetrate and interact with the projected light-space, a collective and participatory expression of space unfolds. “Luzes relacionais” amplifies the three-dimensional fabric of space by making it visible, audible, and tangible to participants. The resulting aesthetic experience encourages an unending relational process of shaping space among participants. “Luzes relacionais” is a hommáge to the work and aesthetic inquiry of Brazilian artist Lygia Clark.
I was looking to replace the Panasonic RX-5100 I had from 1978-1998, and came across this. Looks nice, and frankly while ipods and all are nice, it’s a lot more fun to have one of these while hanging out with friends.
This one as you can see above comes in two variations, Classic Stereo w. 2 speakers and also a 3 speaker version (which like some classic boomboxes, seems like it would really cause some phase wonkiness to me). Both models also have USB, 3.5mm and RCA auxiliary portsand a larger auxiliary “LINE IN” port that allows you to connect a guitar or microphone.
Their available online starting January 2011 and at retail locations in February 2011 at $399 for the two speaker version and $499 for the three speaker one.
'The Elephant Project' is a hand painted stop motion animation. It was created on one canvas over 26 days, with a further four days spent in post production aligning and colour correcting each photograph.
This project was my final work for a Bachelor of Digital Design at Auckland University of Technology.

In today’s podcast, we get a tantalizing taste of words in the wild, from the jungles to the prairie.
Reporter Ari Daniel Shapiro tells us about Klaus Zuberbuhler’s work in the Tai Forest of West Africa. When Klaus first came to the forest, he hit a wall of sound. But he slowly started making sense of that sonic chaos by scaring a particular monkey called the Diana Monkey. Turns out, the Diana Monkey is making more than just noise. Then we jump from the jungle to the prairie, where Con Slobodchikoff has discovered what he calls a grammar of color, shapes, and sizes embedded in prairie dog chirps. His discovery leaves Jad and Robert wondering whether we could ever understand the language of a different species. Back in the jungle, Klaus is wondering the same thing, and tells us about one day when the cacophony of monkey calls distilled into a life-saving warning.
