Multi-Projector-Mapper (MPM): Open-Source 3D Projection Mapping Software Framework

The multi-projector-mapper (MPM) is an open-source software framework for 3D projection mapping using multiple projectors. It contains a basic rendering infrastructure, and interactive tools for projector calibration. For calibration, the method given in Oliver Bimber and Ramesh Raskar’s book Spatial Augmented Reality, Appendix A, is used. Continue reading

Digital Art Weeks Singapore

As we are working hard on the preparations for Digital Art Weeks 2013, which will take place in Singapore in May 2013, our new DAW Facebook page is now online at:

The page contains lots of materials from previous DAWs. The featured picture above is from DAW 2007 in Zurich, with Computer Pioneer and Rebel at Work Joseph Weizenbaum, ETH Professor Jürg Gutknecht, Art Clay and me, during a panel at ETH Zurich’s VisDome.

Book: Digital Urban Modeling and Simulation

Edited by Stefan Müller Arisona, Gideon Aschwanden, Jan Halatsch, and Peter Wonka, 2012

About this Book

This book is thematically positioned at the intersections of Urban Design, Architecture, Civil Engineering and Computer Science, and it has the goal to provide specialists coming from respective fields a multi-angle overview of state-of-the-art work currently being carried out. It addresses both newcomers who wish to obtain more knowledge about this growing area of interest, as well as established researchers and practitioners who want to keep up to date. In terms of organization, the volume starts out with chapters looking at the domain at a wide-angle and then moves focus towards technical viewpoints and approaches. (Excerpt from preface by Stefan Müller Arisona).

The Value Lab Asia

The Value Lab Asia is a collaborative, digitally augmented environment for a wide range of applications, such as participatory urban planning and design, stakeholder communication, information visualisation and discovery, remote teaching and conferencing. It includes a 33 megapixel video wall, three large displays with touch overlays, a number of smaller, mobile multi-touch enabled displays, and extensive video conferencing capabilities. The Value Lab Asia is the younger sibling of the Value Lab Zurich, built at ETH Zurich’s ScienceCity by Gerhard Schmitt, Remo Burkhard, Jan Halatsch and Antje Kunze of the Chair of Information Architecture in 2007/08. It therefore borrows many of the concepts of the Value Lab Zurich, such as being set in a friendly environment that operates in daylight conditions, however comes with updated state-of-the-art hardware and a different look.

robot_mixeur

‘robot_mixeur’ is my alter ego when performing as visualist and DJ. As a DJ, I usually mix elements from minimal techno, tech house and techno into driving soundscapes and pushing beats. As a visualist (or VJ), I am using the self-coded software Soundium/Decklight as performance environment for live video editing and 3D content generation. Continue reading
