Metaphor Engine: video installation art using @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

Vimeo user vade uploaded video of this art installation/party featuring an appearance by Raspberry Pis.

Eyebeam – Moving Image Fair after party 2014

Live Audio Performance and improv DJ set by Landless Farm.

Video Triptych in the spirit of 60’s video installation art. 3 small HD screens feature generative cosmic imagery, watching themselves and sister universes – feeding back endlessly.

Lighting and refractive surfaces interact with lenses and screens, hand manipulated and performed in physical space. Re-scanned, processed and filtered live.

This setup is a early prototype for “optically coupled” video performance and installation tools. The end goal is to run completely through the displays, doing all processing either optically, with feedback, or on the devices themselves.

Technical Details:

3 Raspberry Pi micro computers running custom OpenFrameworks applications generate feedback, star fields / solar systems. Running the Raspberry Pi camera for feedback.

Live coded Arduino powered lights flicker and provide ambiance.

VDMX and v002 effects for post processing.

Thanks to the OpenFrameworks community for the Raspberry Pi port, specifically Jason Van Cleave and Dan Moore.
