While washing dried paint out of his sink from a different project, Michael Chase was inspired by the colors and textures that the combination of water and paint created, and set out to make his own psychedelic patterns armed with only his iPhone, his sink, and different types of paint. He states that the series, entitled Paintaway, “revolves around the central theme of impermanence. The flowing water represents the erosion of time and the paint is symbolic of the physical world we live in.”

Reach for the Clouds

“Lying down on a hill with your pupils filled with the endless blue sky, perspective of your eyesight suddenly gets distorted and clouds drift at the top of your nose. You stretch your arms up to the sky to touch the clouds but can’t reach. Another world right above your head, clouds. Today I visualize my colorful cloud of words right in front of your eyes. Touch the pink clouds drifting on a giant fabric screen, reminisce your favorite childhood clouds of dreams. I spent countless sleepless nights just to realize my unproductive and only romantic cloud of words. But, isn’t it nice if we could feel the clouds at our fingertips?”

So begins Everyware’s description of their interactive installation, Cloud Pink. The installation, located in Seoul, was created by projecting an image onto a large, suspended fabric screen that responds to touch, allowing viewers to achieve a childhood (and current) dream: to touch the clouds. Everyware is a Korean computing group comprised of Hyunwoo Bang, assistant professor at Seoul National University, and Yunsil Heo, who has an MFA degree from UCLA. For all you tech geeks, Cloud Pink was produced using Processing, Kinects, GLSL, and projectors. Be sure to check out the videos below as well.
