For a long time, I couldn’t post anything to my blog. We’re very busy with the works in Filika Design (check out our web site). And I’m trying to gain my coding skills on different coding enviroments like c++, unity and java-Javascript…

I think, I leave actionscript  in web design works. We have to think about mobile devices. And it’s sad for me to say this but, there is no way to use flash on mobile devices. However, action script is still my special power while programming multitouch apps, generative visuals and kinect based applications…

On the flash side, I’m busy with the new Starling Framework which uses gpu instead of system memory and cpu power. You should check it out if flash is your favourite coding platform 🙂

Some works from Filika Design;

– First video is Aqua Koridor : 12 x 8 m led screen,sonar sensors to track viewers’ coordinates, arduino board parses input data and send them to processing to create interactive visuals.

– Second video is floor projection application. However, it’s working with Kinect+Adobe Air. So, it’s very powerful from conventional floor projection techniques. We chose Kinect. Because, it isn’t affected by light sources, it uses infrared ligth to get infromations like depth, x,y and z position of the objects. So, ambient or spotlights in the venue don’t affect our application or calibration values.

Use your macbook trackpad as a multitouch device on Max 5

I was looking for somekind of framework or script in order to use trackpad as multitouch device. At first I found TongSeng from TUIO. After a little googling, I came across with an external called Fingerpinger which was written for Max Msp Jitter. It’s free and opensource. You can download it from here. And it’s very easy to work with it.

Call For Artists – Transition Houses

Transition Houses

is about being in between time. It is the void in between happenings, the ether that fills the space, the apparent blank.

The apparent blank is not without substance. It is the punctuation between sentences, the emphasis between ideas, it is the silence that makes possible for notes to be discerned – the one thing in common of all music. The one thing in common of all art.

Transition Houses is about the process, the essential environment of creation.

We would like to celebrate this ephemeral and vital air that is the process. We would like to make it a negative, to make the apparent blank a blinding light and the colorful spots insignificant dead heaps of lifeless matter.

To point out the process and make the result pointless (or simply a rest between two transitions, a necessary collision before a vital expansion).

Houses of transition are not real. We made them up.

Houses of transition have no real territory. It is tomorrow’s dream of yesterday. It is a state of mind.

Transition Houses are the turns we do before taking a new direction. The pauses we do before making new movements. These are the assessments of past visions and the formation of future ones. And something anew just as well. It is the connection between the results, but something completely different from it altogether.

There are no statements made in Transition Houses. There are observations.

Transition Houses is the moment of metamorphosis. The moment when shapes are blurred and lines mingled and tangled together into something unfamiliar but vivid, alive.

Transition Houses are the transition word that we use in language to indicate a desired shift in thought, or a summarization, the end of an idea and/or the start of another one. In the rooms of Transition Houses all the howevers, likewises, finallies, for instances, indeeds, meanwhiles, consequentlies, of courses and moreovers are welcome.

There is no democracy in Transition Houses. We really do things together.

Come join us!

Flow/Debi Exhibition at Sakıp Sabancı Museum

Sergi Arayüzünü hazırlarken saç baş yolarken benimle beraber delirip yardım eden Yiğit’e teşekkürü bir borç bilirim 🙂 10.08.2009 – 20.08.2009

Debi sergisi; Sabancı Üniversitesi, Sanat ve Sosyal Bilimler Fakültesi, Görsel İletişim Tasarımı Programı kapsamında üç yıl süresince üretilmiş işleri kavrama fırsatı sunan bir an. Sergi, öğrencilerin 2007 ve 2009 yılları arasındaki yaratıcı eylemlerinin sonuçlarını kapsıyor.

VA/VCD programı mezunlarının istihdam yüzdesi hayli yüksek. Ulusal ve uluslararası sektörde ilk sene içerisinde diğer okullarla karşılaştırıldığında kaydadeğer yüzdeleri bulan istihdam oranının yanı sıra; önemli oranda bir öğrenci kesimi de Türkiye, Avrupa Birliği ve Amerika Birleşik Devletleri’ndeki prestijli üniversitelere, sıklıkla burs alarak kabul ediliyorlar.

Öğrenci sergisinin bu yılki teması olan Debi, öğrencilerin eğitimleri esnasında geliştirdikleri fikirler ve işlerin ileriye dönük potansiyeline dikkat çekiyor. Sergilenen işlerin bazılarının sanat eserleri ve akademik tebliğler olarak önemli uluslararası ortamlarda sergilendiklerini, sunulduklarını görüyoruz.

Bu sergi; yaratıcı sektörün geleceği hakkında yeni neslin ürettiği yeni fikirlerle ve Sabancı Üniversitesi, VA/VCD programındaki usta profesyonellerin yetiştirdiği yeteneklerle tanışma fırsatı sunuyor.

Multitouch screenshots and video with MMF

In these ones, I’ve tried totally different values. I think, there some bugs about CCV tracker software. Because, in the morning multitouch screen doesn’t work as I expected. However, a few minutes ago (23:13 🙂 )I’ve got these results with the same compliant surface. I’m not sure about it. May be , the problem is my Toshiba laptop. Anyway, it’s working now.
