Grayscale Anglegraph

I am a big fan of Daniel Rozin’s art, and while looking at his Wooden Mirror (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZysu9QcceM) I though it might be fun to see if I could make static images using a similar visual technique. In the Wooden Mirror, Rozin assembled 835 little wooden tiles onto 835 little servo motors.  Using a video camera a computer translates what it see into rotations for the servos. Each wooden tile essentially becomes a pixel in the larger image. The wooden tile can be tilted up to catch the light and become white or can be tilted down become black by being shadowed. I figured I could make a static image by creating solid geometric model on the computer and 3d printing it.  Here is how I went about it.

Getting started with it is pretty easy, but there a couple little things that if missed can make working with it a real head ache. Since I had some hangups with getting it working when I first started, I thought I would share a step by step guide on how I start new openFrameworks projects for use with Visual Studio 2010.

Bubble display proof of concept

A while back I saw the cool water display that Jeep has been showing off at conventions, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2LUz2WVcek It looked simple enough so I decided to build something similar. Instead of using falling water I decided to use air bubbles rising in water. I thought it would be simpler (though, I now I have my doubts). In this post I will share how the effort is going.
