T#Walker v1.0

a new media art installation by
Rolf van Gelder

shown at:
Eindhoven Public Library, Eindhoven (NL)
find on google maps

as a part of the
Dutch Technology Week 2013

Short description:

T#Walker is a real-time ‘Tweet-Walker’ (or ‘Tweet-Crawler’): it pulls real-time Tweets from Twitter and finds its own way in the vast Twitter world.
In fact it’s an arbitrary mirror of the world; showing what people are talking about, right now, at this very moment, linking tweets by keywords.

The way it works:
It retrieves the most recent tweets for a specific ‘keyword’ and displays them word by word, with information about that tweet (at the bottom of the screen) like the date and time it was tweeted, the Twitter name of the tweeter, the number of followers of the tweeter, the geo-location of the tweeter (if available).
The avatar of the tweeter will be displayed in the middle of the screen.
If the tweet contains a link T#Walker will show a QR-tag with the link information in the upper left corner of the screen so the visitors can scan it with their smart phone, if they like.
After the set of tweets has been displayed the next ‘keyword’ will be picked from all the words in the previous set of tweets:

User interaction:
The flow of T#Walker can be influenced by the visitors of the exhibition by sending tweets to Twitter.
The tweets should contain the hashtag #twalker2013, followed by a space and exactly one keyword.
For instance: #twalker2013 bibliotheek
The installation will pick up the visitors keywords and use them as a starting point for further crawling.

Exquisite Zone v1.0

a new media art installation by
Carmin Karasic & Rolf van Gelder

shown at:
Kennedyplein, Eindhoven (NL)
find on google maps

as a part of the
Glow 2011 Festival

Short description:

The title, Exquisite Zone, references the 1920-30s surrealist drawing game called ‘Exquisite Corpse’, in which each collaborator adds to a collective composition.

Exquisite Zone invites nightly participants to use their smart phones to make digital marks in public space. The idea is simple, but we've never seen it done real time with mobile devices, such as phones. The concept was developed in a 2010 Baltan Labs workshop.

Many people can add to the ‘collaborative public drawing’. Each time they move their finger over the phone canvas, a line will be drawn on their phone and on the wall. Although a participant's phone displays only their individual canvas, Exquisite Zone projects the collective canvas on an architectural structure.

Anthropocene


(still from Anthropocene :: click on the image for a detail)

a new media art installation by
Carmin Karasic & Rolf van Gelder

shown at:
TAC - Temporary Art Center, Eindhoven (NL)
Vonderweg 1, 5611 BK Eindhoven, the Netherlands find on google maps

as a part of the
Glow 2009 Festival

presented by
MAD - Emergent Art Center


Short description:

Anthropocene is the era in which human activities significantly impact the Earth's climate and ecosystems. This artwork highlights interdependencies between human activities that impact global warming.


The artwork 'Anthropocene' depicts the sun in the background, as the central energy source, with population, deforestation, CO2 emissions, industry, oil and water as conceptual gears.
Each rotating gear-like image causes the one next to it to rotate.
Population growth leads to energy demands that drive industry, which in turn leads to deforestation.
All three lead to increases in green house gases. Everything has a relationship to water.

A live feed 'ticker tape" displays related data, changing as it scrolls above and below the animation.

The music, "In C", is by Terry Riley.

'Antrhopocene' was created for MAD @ GLOW 2009.
The artwork consists of digital collages and statistics controlled by a program written in the Processing language.
