Civilization V – Late Impressions

Civilization is a game well-known for it’s addictiveness. It’s pretty much the game that coined the phrase “Just one more turn”. I don’t know how I came about to playing Civilization V recently, but 50 hours in, I’m hopelessly trapped. Every time I start a new game, I usually end up playing all through the night.

Interestingly, [...]

YouCube: Projection Mapping made in cooperation with Dingfabrik


YouCube is the first projection-mapping project from Dingfabrik, presented at the demoscene-party Evoke 2012 in Cologne. Demosceners at the party place were able to upload their content via intranet at the partyplace – that why the name YouCube. The object was clearly visible from everywhere in the hall.

The sculpture was made of cardboard and is three meters high at its highest point – reaching an architectonical dimension. I wrote all the software used in this project within three weeks from scratch (in the evenings!). The software-chain included lua, love2d, quartz composer, xml, php, html, css. Fun and love.

This is a projection-mapping project I made together with Dingfabrik (Cologne’s fablab/hackerspace for building things). It is the first of a ongoing series of projection-mapping projects. At every project we want to enhance the hard- and software side of the project.

The video of the mapping is a little dark – but there is another short documentary upon this project coming up shortly…

I will show a new piece called Configuation No 8 – a tableau of similar pictures based on the
Each of the 16 Pictures wil be available for sale separately. The price of the individual parts will double after one piece is sold. When a picture is sold it will be replaced with another one showing the value of the sold one.
Furthermore the artbuyer gets his paid money back when the next part is sold.

When the exhibition is finished there will be a new artpiece produced by the logic and rules of the market, named after the value of the last sold part.

For example, at this point it would be named ‘berlin piece #8‘.

Shallow Space Nine

Long time no read! Recently, I finished the quite long project of watching Deep Space Nine. In a previous post, I mentioned how I always enjoyed Star Trek: The Next Generation. I never got into DS9. So quite some time ago, I decided to give the series a watch. 173 Episodes later, here is what [...]

Museum of Endangered Sounds

Ja, über Geräusche hatten wir erst kürzlich etwas (und mit kürzlich meine ich vor drei Monaten). Und es soll auch garnicht weiter ausarten, aber ein kleines Addendum zum Thema Klangarchivierung sei dennoch gestattet, denn folgendes Projekt ist wirklich sehr nett. Das geübte Ohr weiß es längst: Geräusche gibt es eine ganze Menge, und täglich werdenWeiterlesen…
