Ghibliary – Exhibition Documentation

My cheap work is finally being exhibited.

Ghibliary first test

Ghibliary

Have you ever wondered about being in the world of Spirited Away? Mononoke? Kaguya? My Neighbor Totoro? Howl’s Moving Castle?

Come and discover yourself with Ghibliary if you are a Studio Ghibli fan. But if you are not a fan, you can live as if you are a fan.

You will see what you expect to see.

Ghibli FanFiction Stage 2

susu

Working with Kinect in Processing (supervised by Tom Schofield), and he now finally can listen to my hand’s response. You rock! This is what I like about you ススワタリ, always hard working.

I will going to capture and send you to Pure Data in the next Stage. You will carry the X and Y coordinates for me, won’t you?  Trust me, you’ll be fine. All you have to do is to bang a Bang in Pure Data, then you can meet all your pals there in the boiler room. This time Kamaji won’t be there so don’t worry.

Alright. Good luck to both of us.

Dissertation project development: Stage 1

practice

 

Stage 1:

Ghibli FanFiction ジブリファンフィクション practice in progress. Sacrificing space just for the first setup with projector. No more bed to sleep, but worth trying.

Stage 2 plan:

- Try replacing the current webcam with a Kinect. Advised by Dr. Tom Schofield.

- Try physical build up for connecting the relationship between the virtual Ghibli world and human interaction together, which is the original concept: to be in and experience the place.

- Fix technical bugs in Pure Data.

- Get the cardboard sheets to make the physical objects in the virtual Ghibli world.

ジブリの世界。 Inspiration for dissertation

Being in and experience the place.

Inspired by Minecraft project by artist Alan Becker.

Diamond in the rough (Bathhouse)

bathhouse

Diamond in the rough (The Bathhouse) | Live Electronic Performance project

Inspiration:

Inspired by Dr. Ben Freeth’s work (Decoded in discovery museum). Ben advised me to combine Arduino and Puredata together to have some fun.

Design:

Bathhouse in Miyazaki’s best film Spirited Away is the place to start. The place for gods to come and take a bath. Place where spirits meet. This led me to the decision to use the fog maker (inspired by Ben).

A design in small aquarium is the result of this approach. Aquarium gravel and rocks are the main needed materials for the mystic view design. Combing with simple chords writing from logic pro, I designed a simple music box with carton and letter envelopes, then covered the theme song from the film.

Techniques:

Simply testing with sound data sending from Arduino to Puredata. Use all fresh skills I learned from Professor John Bowers’s live electronic performance module and Dr. Tom Schofield’s Arduino sessions.
