Josh Nimoy is a multifaceted software artist with a design and new media arts education. He makes a heavy use of computer programming to produce a lot of his work, and allows the world of code to inspire both is process and his aesthetic. Josh is interested in producing interactive work which “addicts” the audience, through use of synaesthesia and simple game design fundamentals. Josh has spent the last half decade writing simulations and custom generators in Hollywood for use in Film and Television, most notably the hologram elements in TRON:Legacy. Josh has recently re-invented himself as the senior staff media and visual designer in the language and prototyping group in Motorola Mobility’s Consumer Experience Design department, where he dove rather heavily into Android OS development, and thoroughly enjoys it.

The technological developments of the past fourty years have given rise to a major shift from the industrial to the post-industrial information society, where the unit of information, its processes and systems, increasingly define the notions of body, matter, space and time. According to this technological progress, LAb|au| examines the transformation of architecture, art and design within the interactive, reactive and generative realm.
French magazine Connaissance des Arts came to Resonate and created this little video including interviews with festival’s director Maria Jelesijevic and it’s curator Filip Visnjic.

Building from the simple idea that everyone gets a bit bored of screens from time to time right, at Resonate 2012 Andreas Müller together with 12 workshop participants explored different outputs from custom openFrameworks software to different light fixtures. Andreas went through the basics of the DMX, the standard protocol to interact with light fixtures of every shape and size. Andreas also looked at how a few different types of light fixtures are controlled by it and will wrote openFrameworks applications that take control of the lights. Participants in the workshop left with a better understanding of DMX and it’s interaction light fixtures and gained some hands on experience by creating their own light controlling software.
