This is a research blog for my MA in Visual Effects @ Ravensbourne, UK.

Hyperconsciousness is also present in post modern art, characterised by an iconoclastic defiance of tradition, authority, and convention, coupled with a relentless pursuit of innovation (Barrett, 471). This is specially present in computer moderated physical installation art.

Computer programming (often shortened to programming, scripting, or coding) is the process of designing, writing, testing, debugging, and maintaining the source code of computer programs. Programming has been increasingly adopted by artists, designers and creatives working in the digital creative field, enabling them to produce computer programs for a large number of purposes, such as physical art installations, interactive video, large scale public projections, computer vision projects, and interactive sound recordings. In the context of communication between a human and a computer (or an art piece, physical installation etc, mediated by software), creative coding allow artists to set up new experiences for their audiences by exploring interactivity as their main ingredient. By adopting creative coding and physical installations as part of our research method, the intention was to inquiry and establish connections between a representation of the lateralisation of the brain as a system in a computer controlled environment and possible affects over an audience.

The installation was controlled by a custom software written in C++ using Cinder library. Cinder is a creative coding framework and one of its advantages is flexibility and readability. The software used the DMX512 protocol for communicating with the laser projects and the fog machine.
