Yota Devices / Scenarios
Scenarios is an audiovisual installation created by Onionlab for Yota Devices. Bordering on abstraction, Scenarios shows some of the utilities of Yota Devices’ new phone, characterised by its dual screen. The rear screen, made of liquid crystal, can store important information such as a boarding card or map almost permanently.
This piece was presented at Barcelona’s 2013 Mobile World Congress at the exhibition stand designed by External Reference.

Inspiring work from London based artist Florence To.
The Fovea Installation is based on the research of dark adaptation inspired by Biophysics Professor Selig Hecht. First experiment of the Installation will be shown on the 29th September at ambisonic event Dazzle of Fog in Glasgow with sounds designed by Alex Smoke. Installation was designed and produced by Visual Artist Florence To. More information can be found on florence-to.com/F-O-V-E-A
Fovea has been designed with the functionality to be repositioned within a space and the portability for easy transportation.
How long can we respond to our visual perceptions and sound together? Working on the positioning and distance of light, sectioned on multiple reflective surfaces, the installation will be focusing on the idea of dark adaptation and how the contrast with light movements and illumination can heighten our senses. Sound will reflect on the repositioning of light on each reflected panel to create an intensified live performance.
Bad Trip by Alan Kwan.
Bad Trip is an immersive interactive system that enables people to navigate my mind using a game controller.
Since November 2011, every moment of my life has been logged by a video camera that mounts on my eyeglasses, producing an expanding database of digitalized visual memories. Using custom virtual reality software, I design a virtual mindscape where people can navigate and experience my memories and dreams. The mindscape grows continually as fresh memories and dreams come in.

This piece of work is truly exceptional. Interactively navigating such an abstract and uncharted world in this fashion offers new dimensions to investigations in data visualization, HCI, Video Art and Creative Coding.
Considering the size of the team working on this project and the concise list of tools and technology used, such feats do not seem to exist outside the remit of creative designers of interactive media or technology enthusiasts with a flare for application based design.
I personally enjoyed this video all the more for the visual style and excellent attention given to detail on Sound. The appropriate level of freedom to move in a world that is itself surreal really sets this environment apart.
Of course content is King and I am impressed by the idea of capturing “memories” to be stored in this virtual database. As am I impressed by the novel approach that Alan Kwan has taken to capture this information.
A thoroughly enjoyable and eye opening trip.

“Film is the Seventh Art, a superb conciliation of the Rhythms of Space (the Plastic Arts) and the Rhythms of Time (music, poetry and dance), a synthesis of the ancient arts: architecture, sculpture, painting, music, poetry and dance.”
