Work in Progress

This collection of incomplete rendered images is the byproduct of commercial and personal work in computer animation. Test renders are common practice during the production and used to fine tune the various parameters in the 3D scene. They are quick glimpses to the final work during the shaping process. Similar to the chips on the … Continued

onFire

Dozens of thousand of wildfires occur every year most of which are caused by human activity. In this video about 200 million satellite data points were processed, filtered, rendered and sonified in an attempt to illustrate the size and frequency of this human intervention and examine how the patterns change during the seasons and whether … Continued

Spam

How do you feel about spam? 218 spam emails were received over the period of one month. The raw text is printed on screen in sync with the sonification of the same data, a simple conversion of the character’s ASCII codes into audio samples at 44100Khz. In red are the last 1470 characters that are … Continued

Proof of Work

Mouse movement recorded over five typical working days in a Visual Effects Studio. The sped up visualization of the mouse trajectory is in sync with the sonification of the same data, by re-purposing the X and Y coordinates as Left and Right audio signals. Captured at two HD monitors, using a digitizer tablet, at 30fps … Continued

Post Office II

A laser scan of the old Post office in Houston. In the first part of the animation, the geometric data of the model is converted into sound. That sound informs further audio synthesis for the second part, which then animates the geometry. Sound Kamron Saniee Scan SmartGeoMetrics Thanks Alexandre Czetwertynski

geolocation

What does the fingerprint of your daily commute look and sound like? Personal geo-location data were recorded over a period of 3.5 years (May 15 – Jan 19). The  80,000 collected points are visualized and converted into sound to reveal the patterns of my daily life. The data are playing back at a rate of … Continued

geophone

What does a digital object sound like? Geometric objects are stored as a series of points, which are connected to form a continuous surface. Each point is associated with a set of 3D coordinates. In this experiment, the coordinates of a given object are plotted along the point index to form three individual graphs. The … Continued
