ECAL is pleased to present two projects created by students of the Bachelor Media & Interaction Design.
XY by ECAL
Presentation of five analogue oscilloscopes diverted from their initial function as measuring devices, in order to exploit their graphic and interactive potential. Created during a workshop given by the American artist and designer Ted Davis (assisted by Sébastien Matos) to students in the Bachelor's programme Media & Interaction Design, the projects created propose animated sequences developed with the help of the free software "Processing", ranging from a labyrinth game to an intergalactic journey, via typographic research.
Hide/Reveal by ECAL
Collection of Instagram filters to be experimented in various places of the Festival (selection also available on smartphone via @ecal_ch). Students in the Bachelor Media & Interaction Design programme worked on the "Hide/Reveal" theme during a workshop given by artists Ines Alpha and Aaron Jablonski (assisted by Pierry Jaquillard and Kylan Luginbühl), enabling them to develop a visual universe using Spark AR software and to discover how tracking and facial analysis can sequence and animate graphic content.
