Technology might as well drag us away from laptops. I believe there is no stiff border between art and science. Just as there isn't one between humanists and programmers.
The Blob project
Blob is a reactive, geometric creature, programmed to visualise, breathe and interact. The Blob’s shape is shifting in reaction to data.
Abilities of this project are widely extensive and multidirectional. Currently it is reacting to music and different sound properties – frequencies, beats, amplitude. Mechanics hidden inside are programmed to visualize by bulging the elastic body of the Blob.

Theatre scenography Blob
Blob is the main scenography element in the theatre play – „Teraz każdy z Was jest Rzeczpospolitą” – played at Teatr Dramatyczny in Wałbrzych and Teatr Współczesny in Wroclaw.
This much bigger version was created using techniques discovered while working on the first Blob. While adjusting them to different size and theatre needs.
I had much fun with deeper exploration of the liquid latex capabilities. The theme was – filthy and organic.

The Box for Bulb project
DIY midi pedal controller. The Box takes 5 midi pedals and sends their signal through Arduino to the corresponding patch in Max MSP – controlling hacked christmas lights and piezzo microphones.
