Anyways
A cinematic VR movie for 6 participants

Anyways is a 360° VR rail-road movie simultaneously experienced by six participants. Six modded VR headsets with surround sound audio setup offer participants a synchronized virtual experience of a single storyline experienced from 6 different point-of-views. The virtual experience is complemented by real world audio, olfactory, and tactile diversions. Shifting between the virtual and the real, the fictive and the non-fictive via the 6 point-of-views, Anyways aims to start a conversation amongst the participants to collectively figure out the story after the film. 

 

May 11-14, World VR Forum, Crans Montana

CineKid

Puur door rond te kijken zet je lampjes, motortjes en allerlei geluidjes aan en weer uit. Nee, je zit niet ineens in een virtuele wereld als je deze VR-bril opzet, hij moet namelijk andersom! De wereld ziet er dus eigenlijk niet anders uit. Alleen kun je wel ineens met je blik van alles laten gebeuren. Een lampje aan laten gaan bijvoorbeeld. Vet!

The clipfanger

De Clipfanger vangt zijn publiek in audiovisuele clips. De filmpjes die de machine maakt zie je daarin direct terug, of via digitale televisie of internet. Een liedje voor je clip kan je zelf kiezen en hoor je simultaan met toevoeging van videobeeld en de audio van de microfoon. De gebruiker kan zich creatief uiten in beweging, zang, geschreeuw etc. Het nummer wordt vervolgens gebartendered. Dit is een remixprocedure ontwikkeld door PIPS:lab, die de audiovisuele content ritmisch verknipt. 

Greyification noemt PIPS:lab dit proces en ziet hierin een enorme commerciële groeimarkt. Daarom creëren ze DieSpace.nl: de eerste internet community voor overleden mensen. 

De Clipfanger is een installatie, gemaakt in samenwerking met de Parade en KPN. Grafitti Artwork op de installatie is van en door kunstenaarscollectief Hotmamahot.

Potator

The Potator is the latest invention of PIPS:lab. The Potator makes it possible to paint in 3D with visual peels of reality, by combining the qualities of a vegetable peeler with that of a brush. The handy tool scans everything that appaers in its visual range; objects, textures or backgrounds - thereby always aware of its own position. With the photographical strips the user of the Potator can paint  spatially or sculpt virtually. The visual output manifests itself as a photo or augmented reality: reality functions as paint and canvas at the same time. The Potator brings together painting, sculpting and movement, and challenges its users to shape reality…

Luma2solator

 

Luma2solator, an interactive installation that uses the lumasol light drawing. This installation allows the audience to draw with light, creating pictures themselves with a simple to operate tool, and using custom made light drawing tools we have created from years of light drawing experience. The audience is encouraged to be free and create whatever pictures they want. The Luma2solator also displays a variety of images that others have already created to inspire the users with the ideas of others. All the images that the audience create are automatically uploaded to the Lumasol website we created (of course these images can be linked to each persons Facebook or other social networking sites, and we have for smaller installations had the images automatically print for the audience). This installation can also be outside (at night) and the pictures the audience create can be projected onto buildings or any appropriate screen live.

 

The Luma2solator was chosen as one of the 20 masterworks of media art by Neckar Verlag.

A Luma2solator was purchased by the ZKM for the permanent collection.

Half/half paintings
with the Potator

first halfhalf painting in PIPSlab

Together with Thomas Bratzke, we created the new art discipline half/half  paintings. These paintings are partly for real and partly in augmented reality. Looking at the painting you can see the craftmanship of the painter, if you keep your iPad in front of it, a second virtual layer appears. We can describe it, but you should actually see it for yourself! Check out the video in pics and media.

KWF lichtbericht
campaign cancerfund

PIPS:lab staat ook op tegen kanker en werkte mee aan deze KWF campagne. Met onze lumasol techniek maakten vrijwilligers en kunstenaars lichtberichten voor het KWF. Na 4 dagen live painten in een loods in Amsterdam Noord, heeft onze ABB robot Stefke het overgenomen. In totaal zijn er meer dan 1800 lichtberichten gemaakt. 

Sta op tegen kanker en stuur een KWF Lichtbericht.

1 op de 3 mensen krijgt kanker. Kanker raakt ons dus allemaal. Laat zien voor wie jíj opstaat. Schrijf een bijzonder bericht voor een dierbare en laat weten dat je aan hem of haar denkt.

The wheel of shantabla
Television with wheel

This is a television in which the filmmaterial is controlled in a prehistoric manner. There is a giant wheel connected to the side of an old television. Turn the wheel and the movie plays stop the wheel and the movie is paused. If the wheel is turned to the right the movie plays forward, to the left backwards. The speed of turning is connected to the playing speed of the movie. The content of the installation is open and can made up out of live-recorded footage.

Commercials & photography

PIPS:lab invents new techniques that can be used in the advertisement or branding of organisations and businesses.

Lumasol - using a slow shutter in photography combined with our home-made software and light writing tools - is one of these inventions. We have used it for many applications over the years. Besides our autonomous theatre and art work we have worked for clients such as:

- XAL Catalogue http://search.xal.com/XAL_Vol14_screen_D-E-F/index.html#/6/

- Ford Kuga 2008
