The Book of Jonas

The installation is based on Mihály Babits’ poem: The book of Jonas, which in this case is told by György Bánffy. In this audio-visual work that was commissioned by Trafó contemporary cultural center the position of balls determines the sounds and the projection. The X coordinates control the playback speed, while the Y coordinates control the filter cutoff. The background noises, them music and the generated animation are meant to enhance the poem’s atmosphere.

Between The Lines

This project is about looking at personal identity as a data source. The most obvious source of that is the clothes that we are wearing. The system is based on the color components of your clothes. The darker the clothes you are wearing the slower the melody is and the more colorful your clothes are the more complex the melody is. The system reads from bottom to top and determines these values once in every cycle while transforming your color components on the projected screen.

Hug Me! - Lass Dich Drücken.

An interactive Christmas installation by Kitchen Budapest and Goethe Institute.

In front of the institute a lonely but very nice snowman will be waiting in the cold for children and adults, boys and girls, young and old visitors to hug him. The more hugging people he gets, the happier he becomes, and the facade of the building cheers up with light.

“If the bee disappeared from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live.“ - Albert Einstein

These little insects carry out pollination of many agricultural crops, also estimated that in Europe 85% of wild flowers as well, hence their absence would have unpredictable consequences. The global disappearance of bees is a serious concern for, both in agriculture and nature alike.

Blowing-sensitive Creatures!

Blow a wave to the facade and change the hotel's color!

As part of the Media Facades Festival 2010 we have built a blowing-sensitive device which is connected to the facade of the Lánchíd 19 Design Hotel. If you are blowing the device it starts to light and send a data to the facade. After few seconds you can see a wave on the facade that you made.

Opera Looper

Built on our previous experience from the MobileJam project Opera Looper creates a collective musical experience by controlling musical loops using four iPods.

Opera Looper is a combination of two software tools: a sample based sound system written in Pure Data, and a real-time animation system created in Animata. Opera Looper made its debut at the Opera Unbound event in cooperation with Samu Gryllus, Brooklyn Museum and Extremely Hungary.

To Fragment and Then To Rebuild (21 Days)

For 21 days straight, our guest researcher Jason Dunne was a multi-webcam street photographer in Budapest during September-October 2009.

Using still-captures from these multiple webcam fractured vantage points, all of the images were downsized to ultra-low pixel counts. On Day 1, each image was downsized to 1x3 pixels; Day 2 the image was downsized to 2x6 pixels, Day 5 became 5x15 pixels, and so on, until Day 21, when each image is 21 pixels in height (and about .001694 megapixels in total), and the original image reappears.

Lumitense

We imagine a light space which can be controlled by physical human force. Soft, tensile, elastic rays of light stretched through the space which can be grabbed and stretched and so controlled.

Plant cruiser

Our aim

A sensor-equipped autonomous potted plant, which seeks to meet the needs of plants with special needs. On the other hand, robotic and ecological experiment.

Why do we prepare it?

Neuro Cube

We wanted to develop a game that is capable of creating complex systems based on simple rules. Each cube is composed of the same hardware elements and runs the same programs. The cubes are able to detect each other depending on their correlating situation and can interact with each other in the form of light and sound plays.
