Week 14

This week I’m using another i-DAT feed. This is from the Eco-OS project. The feed consists of data from ecoids installed around north devon. I’m using a humidity reading from one of them with multi-coloured drops to visualise the moisture in the air. The smaller the reading, the less drops there are.

Week 13

So for a change I’ve gone back to using the Arch-OS feed, this time taking the current wind speed. I read an article on how if you draw a line perpendicular from the midpoint of each of the sides of a pentagon, you get 6 sub pentagons. The article had a really nice tutorial for displaying this. I took it one step further and added some animation.

Week 12

This is something I had running on the GreenScreen for a while and is a visualisation of the Arch-OS feed (www.arch-os.com/livedata/). The sketch reads the feed and uses the values to change the colours. If you click and hold the mouse down you will see the negative version……which i happen to think looks quite nice :)

Week 11

This is probably even lazier than my word cloud. I’m using i-DAT’s ecoid feed again (http://www.eco-os.org/livedata/) and getting it to seed one of the basic 3D examples from processing.org with a couple of parameters changed.

Week 10

This visualisation is unashamedly lifted from matt pearson’s 100 abandoned artworks and whilst he dedicated it to his wife, to me it looks like a poppy and so I dedicate it to the soldiers world wide fighting some politician’s war and hope they all make it home safely. I again make use of the Arch-OS feed (http://www.arch-os.com/livedata/).

Week 9

I really wanted to do something a bit scientific so thought a feed on the Large Hadron Collider could be fun. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be any interesting ones around (unless you know otherwise) so I used this one – http://rss.sciam.com/sciam/topic/large-hadron-collider. The visualisation is trying to look like atoms being agitated but now I’m not so sure lol.

Week 8

This week my creative juices are running a bit low so I’ve gone for a simple word cloud and not even formatted at that. So, I’ve taken the Independent’s news feed (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/rss) and used that as the basis for my cloud. Well, when I say cloud i guess i mean “mass of words”. Anyways, feel free to pull it apart :)

Week 7

This visualisation is very similar to the previous weeks. ECO-OS is a project from i-DAT which is collecting ecological data and publishing it via an RSS feed (http://www.eco-os.org/livedata/). The visualisation is affected by the total number of light sensors being logged.

Week 6

This week’s visualisation is using the Gatwick news feed (http://www.gatwickairport.com/rss/) and producing a radar screen effect using the number of times the word “delay” appears.

Week 5

So I’m returning back to the weather for this week’s project and using the speed of the wind as reported via the Arch-OS feed (http://www.arch-os.com/livedata/). The value of the windspeed sensor controls the speed with which the rectangle revolves, much like a virtual wind vane.
