After years of research in solo, the time has come for an additional level of interactivity with the public.
A new branch of the research will host a growing collection of software experiments that can be fed with markup data or controlled by script.
These experiments are called slashruns and they're waiting for your participation at slashrun.org!
the war of the words | 2008
a slashrun that will turn you into a general, in charge of an army of words…
A foretaste of the feast to come?
Building on the software toolkit developed at chronotext.org over the years, a handful of real-time 3d applications are ready to emerge.
In parallel, a growing interest for augmented reality, folksonomy and live data sources in general is probably going to spice up the menu…
mapping, augmented | 2007
on the art of mixing virtual content with actual photographic material…
A year of recognition and maturity…
The ongoing research on text at chronotext.org can now be inscribed in a perspective of two thousand years of biblical reading, with the commission of a permanent work by the Shrine of the Book at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
In parallel, considerable progress has been achieved with OpenGL technology, multiplying the previous figures (dozen of thousands of text characters are now flying over…)
a metaphorical journey in 3 episodes on the theme of desert wandering…
Thanks to OpenGL, a technology previously used in expensive military flight simulators and later on in computer games, it's now possible to animate thousands of text characters in real-time, preparing the way for a new generation of applications.
Starting to envision works suited to physical presentation spaces (at the very same time, the Museum is knocking at the door…)
sketchbook on the book | july 2005
a series of sketches where one can read the biblical Book of Isaiah mapped on a virtual landscape
Several invitations to produce new works are the occasion to create more complete pieces.
In parallel, the processing period is reaching its end and a new era of pure java (or whatever works) is beginning…
