Voyage, a journey into imagination
posted on 19/12/2012 13:15:12 by Hemera

Interactive Installation at Canary WharfVoyageThe etymon of the word 'voyage' comes from Latin viāticum, which means 'provision for travelling'; the inspiration of this artwork is to allow people to travel and sail with absolute freedom to all the places we care to imagine. Paper boats bring us in voyages through childhood memories, wishes and imaginings. Paper boats’ on the water invite everyone to make a transition from reality to imagination, reliving childhood memories and embracing our freedom. Creating an unexpected and unusual addition to the landscape, Voyage inspires the viewers to think creatively about the spaces around them; the dynamic coloured light scenarios of the artwork invite the viewer to make a smooth transition between reality and daydream.

Artificial Intelligence to create an Interactive Art Installation
posted on 19/06/2012 14:17:47 by Hemera

This work aims at investigating the relationship between creation and fruition of art, in works that show  intelligent responsiveness to viewer input. Which is your brass voice? is an interactive installation in which the audience members are partners in constructing meanings and producing contents. Using artificial intelligence techniques, the artwork analyses the individual nuances of people’s voices and creates a new music composition in real time on the base of its vast musical knowledge. 

Users’ voice is transformed into sound and coloured lights for exploring rich aesthetic interactions. 

Keywords: computational creativity, intelligent systems, software art, digital media, artificial intelligence,   interactive installation,  installation art, embedded electronics, public engagement, open work, audience experience, interdisciplinary collaboration, co-creation.

Derby Tunnel Vision
posted on 31/05/2012 17:00:49 by Hemera

Aether & Hemera have been shortlisted for the “Tunnel Vision” project in Derby and they designed the 'Magic Green Garden' for the main Tunnel. 

Inspire by the beautiful landscape around this manmade infrastructure, the idea is to cover with grass the tunnel’s surfaces appearing to be seamless extensions of the surrounding green areas and bringing the natural environment in the underpass.  Thanks to the addition of glimmering light embedded in the grass this tunnel will be transformed into an enchanted green passage.

TippingPoint
posted on 08/03/2012 16:33:58 by Hemera
What are the challenges for artists in response to the rapidly changing climate in a society where the level of consumerism is not sustainable? 
And how will people change their way of living because of the influence of art?
Thanks to a TippingPoint bursary I’ve been able to attend an intense 3 day gatherings and precipitate to a constructive dialogue between artists, scientists and others close to the heart of this issue – with the objective of starting initiatives of all types that can play their part in bringing about these shifts.
TippingPoint’s guiding principles are simple: through their creative work and through collaborations with scientists, artists can play a vital role in exploring and pointing the way towards the cultural, societal and behavioural shifts needed in a world subject to a rapidly changing climate.
