V=dck64AV5bKk The Portal is a unique interactive multisensory installation conceived and actualized by Dreamlab. The artwork was first displayed at the Siggraph 99 Exhibition at the Los Angeles Convention Center where an estimated 42,000 participants shared in the interactive group experience. The Portal installation provides an environment where a gathering of participants simultaneously contribute to the spontaneous creation of a unique sight and soundscape. This is the first known occasion that complete control of anamorphic laser technology, digital voicing and spontaneous freedom of expression is placed directly in the hands of a large group of participants. The exhibit consists of a large tension fabric structure, a matrix of interactive mechanisms and state of the art technology audiovisual equipment. Individuals pull on cords that shapeshift sculpture and simultaneously initiate sound and light changes. By working together, people compose music and sculpt laser worlds in real time. The artwork promotes a sense of community and bonding as the focus shifts beyond mere technology to the higher plane of collective thought. Through this new medium, artists literally sculpt canvas on pigment. STATE OF THE ART… Manipulated lasers and music. New York Times, J. Herz, August 19, 1999. A laser show of neon-colored beams circling colorfully through dark spaces, reaching toward a luminous white cloud with what appears to be streams of silver rain. Excited faces from many countries glimmer in the black light. Through the laser rainbow and rolling mists of fog machine haze a group of people laugh and reach up to pull on the silver strings. A choir of sixty midi voices sings in response. People play together, tugging and listening, discovering as a team how the nature and duration of a tug on each string can result in new voices, crescendos, sustained or staccato phrases of sound. The installation was a success. It gathered people together, all leaning into a playful mystery, stretching their bodies in open space to explore with each other, learning how to make a raincloud sing. The Unlimited Bandwidth of Human Imagination – Siggraph 99, P. Technical Description The Portal installation is composed of a large, 28 foot diameter, tension fabric structure, interactive interface mechanisms and peripheral audiovisual elements. Interaction with a matrix of dangling interface cords sculpts the elastic Lycra Spandex material surface into tri-directional laser light pigment paths and simultaneously activates integrated electronic sensors. The signals are then processed by an analog control voltage to MIDI translator device and output concurrently to laser and intelligent lighting systems, initiating dynamic visual content changes, and a digital sound sampler amplified by an audio system, providing the singing voices. Each of the twenty-four interface mechanisms is assigned one distinct musical pitch, over a continuous three octave range, of a digitally sampled human voice and, by working collectively, the participants make the installation sing in chorus. From the current Infusion Systems website: Resources: About I-CubeX The I-CubeX line of products aim to facilitate the design and implementation of environments and objects that respond to human actions such as walking, reaching, touching etc. As well as environmental parameters such as illumination, temperature, humidity etc.. The response can be in the form of sound, music, video, graphics, animation, robotic movement, etc.. Such responses are generated by 3rd party equipment. While it is a widely used tool for prototyping and experimentation with human interfacing it is also perfectly suitable as a scientific research tool to gather data about movement and behavior. Application scope The I-CubeX line of products only includes tools to capture the human actions and/or environmental variables and the tools to make these signals available to other equipment such as a computer or a musical instrument. To communicate with such equipment the MIDI data format is used, transmitted via MIDI cable, USB cable or Bluetooth wireless. MIDI is a widely implemented protocol for communications between musical equipment which has also found its way into video, graphics and animation software as well as various equipments, such as lights, used in theme parks and live shows. Even though I-CubeX uses the MIDI data format, tools are provided to output to devices that use other protocols, enlarging its application scope to gaming, engineering and science. Components To accommodate a wide variety of designs of such responsive environments and objects, the I-CubeX environment consists of the following modular components that can be configured in a multitude of ways: One or more sensors. One or more digitizers. Sensors Sensors connect to a digitizer through a miniature, flexible cable with a 3-pin plug. Sensors can be positioned on the human body or on animals, on walls or floors or on sculptures. The multitude of sensors available from I-CubeX cover almost any human, animal or object motion, as well as a variety of environmental parameters. I-CubeX sensors output either analog voltages or digital I2C signals. I2C is a commonly used bi-directional protocol in robotics. Digitizers The digitizer processes and converts the signal from the sensor to a digital message. A digitizer can convert upto 8 (microDig, USB-microDig, Wi-microDig) or upto 32 (Digitizer) sensor signals. The Digitizer or the microDig connects through a MIDI cable to a computer that is equipped with a MIDI interface (see figure 1) or directly to a MIDI capable device (see figure 2). The USB-microDig connects through a USB cable to a computer that is equipped with a USB port (see figure 3). The Wi-microDig connects wirelessly through Bluetooth to a computer equipped with Bluetooth (see figure 4). All these digitizers use the MIDI data format to encode the sensor signals, but note that on a computer the USB-microDig and Wi-microDig make this MIDI encoded sensor data available through a virtual serial port whereas the Digitizer and microDig make the sensor data available through a MIDI port. Software Various software tools are available to work with I-CubeX. To configure the digitizer run the I-CubeX editor on a computer to communicate with the digitizer using the MIDI or USB cable connection, or the wireless Bluetooth connection. The editor connects directly to either the relevant MIDI port or the relevant virtual serial port. The editor sets a variety of parameters in the digitizer such as the type of processing of the sensor signal and which MIDI message to map to. It provides a simple way to verify if the sensor captures what is required to generate an appropriate response. Once the user has configured the sensors and digitizer with the editor to his or her satisfaction, the MIDI messages can be sent directly to a MIDI device to generate a response. This method of operation of the sensors and digitizer without any computer program to process or analyze the sensor data is called stand alone mode. Using the editor, the data can also be saved on disk for later analysis using 3rd party applications or it can be routed to a virtual joystick, allowing its use in game applications as well as other engineering and science applications. Our mapper software enables the user to convert the sensor data intelligently to keystrokes, which then in turn can control other software programs such as media players. Another alternative is host mode, which consists of operating the sensors and digitizer with a computer program to process and analyze the raw sensor data to obtain more complex response patterns. Plugins for 3rd party software, software to route virtual serial port data to a MIDI port (Connect software) and a C++ API are available for working in host mode. What you need In summary, to get started with creating a responsive environment or object you will need: I-CubeX environment sensors, digitizer(s), editor MIDI interface (for Digitizer or microDig), USB port (USB-microDig) and/or Bluetooth interface (Wi-microDig) Computer(s) (Windows or MacOS) MIDI device(s) or software(s) to generate required response(s) (3rd party) In the help section on our website you can find more gear from a number of 3rd party manufacturers to help you generate a suitable response. Further reading There is more to know about I-CubeX, how it has been used, sample applications, more technical details.. I-CubeX arose out of a research project in 1995 directed by Axel Mulder, while he was doing his PhD on virtual musical instruments at the Department of Kinesiology, Simon Fraser University, to address the need for better tools for artists to create interactive art and for musicians to more easily create or modify musical instruments. The project led to a paper entitled The I-Cube System: moving towards sensor technology for artists, after which it was commercialized. Infusion Systems Tilt Sensor.
