withDRAWal is a series of ten interactive scribble styles commissioned by Graham Peet of The Public in West Bromwich, England. I programmed and tested the whole thing at Beit T'Shuvah. Each mode responds to the scribbling input in a different way. In writing this software using C++ and openGL in OpenFrameworks, I found myself using a maze solving algorithm, the Box2D physics engine, and Perlin noise. Instructions: draw with your mouse, and press the circle at the bottom left corner to move on. If you have a keyboard, press spacebar to clear the screen without moving on. Each number key corresponds to one of the ten modes. Press D to enable the debug overlay. Press - and + to adjust speed or fatness - use at your own risk. Press S to render one screenshot to the data folder. F toggles fullscreen. Q brings back the beginning instruction screen. If you're on a Mac portable that has a sudden motion sensor, mode 5 will let you tilt the screen.

GRL Graffiti Brush

I shared a hotel with knights of Graffiti Research Lab (GRL) et. al. in Barcelona whilst showing at offf 2007. At one point, I coded this brush that turns a few mouse drags into a randomly generated bubbly blingy style. The brush code was then massaged into L.A.S.E.R. Tag. Here is the stand-alone version for your enjoyment and algorithmic plagiarism. I should quickly note for interested jttoolkit participants that this begins my attempted merging/joining/cooperating between OpenFrameworks and jttoolkit in hopes that they could eventually be one in the same ACU strain. Thanks for hot Spanish summer nights, Bennett, Evan, James, Theo, and Zach! An intersection of bodies and code had been long overdue. I certainly got offf.

Key Controls:

MOUSE DRAG - draws one line.
ESC - quit.
SPACE - clears the drawing area and generates a new brush.
M - show/hide the mouse
L - easter egg.
F - toggle fullscreen
C - choose 3 colors (mac: get out of fullscreen mode first)

Drawing7 Self Representation

Make a self portrait on paper in color. Use at least three but no more than six colors. Use any materials you want---crayon, pastel, collage, found color, water color, oil, acrylic, colored pencil, magic markers and so on. (One note on collage: you can for instance cut strips of color from a magazine illustration, but at this point I don't want you to import a whole image that is already in two dimensions. No photographic images. You can however interpolate a part or whole of one of your own drawings or sketch book pages) Try to fill or account for all the space of the page. I want you to become hyper aware of the boundary of the edge and how it affects composition. This self-portrait can be "realistic". (if it is, try to avoid "the staring eye syndrome" and try to make the nose look like it sticks out.) It can be "psychological". It can be metaphoric or involve a self-surrogate. Work on several and we'll analyze them in class and hopefully pick the most interesting one to then develop into the final portrait. --Billy Sullivan

CALL 212 995 3984 AND START WHISTLING

A Drawing Piece by Josh Nimoy, 2003. Medium: Computer and Electronic Circuitry. Viewers are able to call this installation from a cell phone. When they whistle, ascending scales make vertical strokes on the "paper" while descending scales make more horizontal strokes. Volume will affect the fatness of the brush. This is a computer projection on a wall - situated amongst other people's drawing artworks. Besides its white glow and pixel grain, the rectangular area looks just like another drawing. Vector-based "screenshots" can be plotted onto large format paper. Premiere: ITP Spring Show, May 13, 2003.

Technical Information: A custom USB device was designed from Radioshack parts to answer phone calls from a gallery land line, while projecting the video onto the wall is a computer program written in C. The output files will open in Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia Flash, Acrobat Reader, GhostScript, AutoCAD, and various Adobe-powered printers.

KOCOART.com

I collaborated with designer Jiyoon Chun at the School of Visual Arts in New York in creating an interactive exhibition for the Museum for Korean Contemporary Art. Based on style guides and mockups, I created three online exhibits in Shockwave.

Aesthetic concept and content by Yoon Chun, interaction design collaboration with Josh Nimoy.

The KARAOKE section allows viewers to scribble using famous works of art as their paint.

Exquisite Corpse Paint

Creative Exquisite-Corpse Viewer, using content generated by a hundred ITP students in collaboration with my Applications group during the preceding week. Solution: a cyclical self-drawing, line-recycling, and motion-mimicking strip of communal art.
