"Does It Feel Crowded In Here To You?"

A wall installation comprised of nano-scale biosensors that detect airborne pathogens and a display that tells passersby just what kinds of pathogens are floating around them this very instant - a reminder of the power of the invisible ecosystem that surrounds us all.

Live Sculpting

Live sculpting is a user controlled interactive art piece using modified electric skin to rebuild the muscles on a real human into the "ideal" body type.
(Electronic skin is a small, (postage stamped sized), discreet, device that adheres to skin and relays information back to a computer. When placed on a forehead, electronic skin records and relays brainwave information; when placed on the wrist it records and relays information about blood flow and muscle movement.)

Breathing Electricity

My project entails an air mask that charges one's device (iphone, ipad, tablet) by breathing into the mask which converts the wind into electrical energy that charges the phone. This artistic experience will be placed at a museum, or any regular space we visit (library, subway, coffee shop), for people to use when their phone needs charging.
Regular sanitization will be necessary, but this is a new creation towards a more earth-friendly technology. A human-powered/solar hybrid charged device is an environmentally friendly alternative from devices that use a lot of energy. And because this technology is renewable, it can be used for a very long time and it serves one's phone for 24 hours.

Hyperspectral Imaging
(666.41 KiB) Downloaded 237 times
Hyperspectral imaging collects and processes information from across the electromagnetic spectrum.
This technique of dividing images into bands can be extended beyond what is visible to the human eye. HIS utilizes wavelength composition of the electromagnetic radiation. The wavelengths of interest for HSI range from the low end of the visible spectrum (violet) through the high end of the visible spectrum (red), through infrared.

Objects leave unique spectral signatures across the electromagnetic spectrum, which enable identification of the materials that make up a scanned object. Hyperspectral remote sensors, collect image data in hundreds of spectral bands, to derive a continuous spectrum for each image cell.

Some of the many application of hyperspectral imaging are geology, mining, agriculture, mineralogy, surveillance, environment, and chemical imaging.

Art Proposal:
This project will explore the expanding remote sensing technology, hyperspectral imaging, in an artistic context in order to see things that are not visible to the naked eye. By looking at a work of art through a hyperspectral image, viewers will gain a new perspective by seeing something they are normally unable to see. The exhibit will be divided into two parts, one that shows artwork in the form of a hyperspectral image and the other that shows the body as a hyperspectral image. People will be invited to view an artwork of their own or provided by the gallery to be viewed under the sensor. The hyperspectral image of the artwork will then be projected on the screen at the front of the gallery.

The second part of the exhibit gives the viewers a first-hand experience of the hyperspectral remote sensing technology as they are invited to become part of the artwork. There will be a large screen set up at the back of the room, one side lined with spectral sensors. As people walk behind the screen a hyperspectral image of their body will be displayed on the other side of the screen. This gives viewers a chance to become part of the exhibit and experience the human body from an internal viewpoint that they are normally unable to see.

Tunnel of Lights

Post by rjliang » Tue Mar 20, 2012 12:30 pm

Mechanophores is a class of materials recently developed at the University of Illinois that change color when they are stressed or after a polymer reaches a critical strain. They could give an engineer a quick visual indication of whether a bridge is at risk and where the trouble lies prior to failure.

Through the implementation of the newly developed mechanophore technology, I am proposing to build a tunnel of lights. While mechanophores have been made to give a visual indication of the slow process of strain throughout time, I am interested in speeding up this process in order to create a simple, yet visually stimulating experience.

I will do this through constructing a large glass tunnel with metal shear stress operators built within it. The operators will serve to quickly grind large quantities of mechanophore-injected polymer pieces. Each piece will momentarily light up as it is stressed. As viewers walk through the glass tunnel, they will experience the continuous flashing of lights as pieces of polymer within the tunnel are being continuously broken.

Location: Large and empty warehouse with dimmed lights
Structure: Glasstunnel
Shear Stress: Metal Shear Stress Operators

For my proposal, I want to do something with hologram, which is a technique that allows the light scattered from an object to be recorded and later reconstructed so that when an imaging system (a camera or an eye) is placed in the reconstructed beam, an image of the object will be seen even when the object is no longer present. The image changes as the position and orientation of the viewing system changes in exactly the same way as if the object were still present, thus making the image appear in three dimensions.

In each culture, there are a difference between public space and private space.
Even though present in a public space, one would keep a distance while interacting with another person.
How would it feel when someone violates one’s private space and action?
Also, how would the environment effect it?
In different culture, the distance people keep from interacting with others is different.
This project is to represent the awkward moment when interacting with someone that acts differently from the community.

Interacting with audience:
One audience enter the space at a time
It is going to be a dark space that you can only see the entrance and exit.
The hologram recorder records whatever the audience do and project it very close to the audience following the movement of the participant.
It would create a feeling similar to horror haunted houses.

It is inspirited by Vito Acconci’s Following Piece, 1969

Global Journey Facilitator

The Global Journey Facilitator utilizes Global Positioning System technology, Google Earth Mapping and Imaging, and two creative and informational databases to create either a moving digital experience or to facilitate directions for a real outdoor experience. It begins similar to a GPS program but instead on bringing you from you start point to end point in the quickest manner, it emphasizes the journey and creates a longer experience filled with artworks, history, and alleyways the user may never have otherwise seen.

Nanopore Genome Sequencing

Full genome sequencing (FGS), also known as whole genome sequencing or complete genome sequencing, is a laboratory process that determines the complete DNA sequence of an organism's genome at a single time.
With the improved technology of nanopore sequencing we can theoretically sequence an entire human genome in as little as 15 minutes.

Nanopore sequencing rapidly reads DNA sequences by feeding a strand of DNA through a biological pore.
The various bases are identified by measuring the difference in their electrical conductivity as they pass through the pore.
Some of the advantages of the system are that it could deliver real-time sequencing of single molecules at low cost, and that it does not damages DNA, so the data could be later reanalyzed.

This project will be presented in a dimly lit gallery.
In the center of the room there will be two computers:
  • The first will be used to take and sequence DNA from participants as well as general information (age, sex, ethnicity, etc)
  • The second computer will be used by viewers to manipulate the data collected from the various genomes
The genome sequences will be stored in a database and connected to software and projectors that will constantly be scrolling through genetic codes on three of the gallery walls.
The fourth wall will display information from the second computer which will allow viewers to choose various ways to organize the genetic codes such as: most common sequence, a particular sequence, specific characteristics (ethnicity, age, sex, etc).
