Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to program images, animation, and interactions. It is used by students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists for learning, prototyping, and production. It is created to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context and to serve as a software sketchbook and professional production tool. Processing is an alternative to proprietary software tools in the same domain.

"In the flight control tower of the Lufthansa Brand Academy Frankfurt-Seeheim visitors learn about the local and global connections of international air traffic. A 14 meter wide 180 degrees projection let´s the visitors dive into the fully navigable, realtime 3D visualization of 16000 daily Lufthansa and Star Alliance flights. The intuitive navigation interface provides 6 degrees of freedom. Additional time and content filters can be activated with extra buttons and sliders. In just a few seconds of flight the user can move from a macro view of a local hub to a global overview of the worldwide air traffic routes." White Void

Avatar is an upcoming epic 3-D science fiction film directed by James Cameron, due to be released on December 18, 2009.
Avatar is set during the 22nd century on a small moon called Pandora, which orbits a gas giant, and is inhabited by the tribal Na'vi, ten foot blue humanoids that are peaceful unless attacked. Humans cannot breathe Pandoran air, so they genetically engineer human/Na'vi hybrids known as Avatars that can be controlled via a mental link. A paralyzed Marine named Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) volunteers to exist as an Avatar on Pandora, falling in love with a Na'vi princess and becoming caught up in the conflict between her people and the human military that is consuming their world.Wikipedia

"We Are Waves" is an interactive installation which invites the participant to explore the qualities of sound based on the body’s movement and forms. In other words, it is a space for considering the concept of timbre as a specific quality of sound waves, using the interface that human beings are most familiar with: their own body. Using a camera, "WeAreWaves" takes the points making up the silhouette of the bodies in the image and converts them into sound. A wave consisting of hundreds of particles is created. These are projected onto a screen and create the image. The wave seen and the wave heard are therefore the same, and both are the same as the silhouette of the user or users. Questions quickly arise, such as what if there are two of us? Or five of us? And what about if we are holding an umbrella? Only the experience and curiosity of those taking part provide answers. The space provides the flexibility needed to compose shapes of waves between several people and even to include objects. "WeAreWaves" allows viewers to experiment with the feeling of seeing and listening to themselves, and to stop for a moment to reflect on a universe in which everything and all of us are waves.

This is an excerpt from 'I Am A Chain Reaction' which is one of seven works that make up the dance/animation/programming hybrid project, Smashup.

Smashup is the outcome of an ongoing collaboration between artists James Paterson & Amit Pitaru ( Insertsilence ), and dancer/choreographer Dana Gingras ( Animals of Distinction, The Holy Body Tattoo ). Smashup premiered in its complete form, an hour long performance, at the Festival Transamérique in Montreal in the summer of 2008.

British sculptor Thom Puckey creates work that interestingly treads between old aesthetic sensibilities and materials and new content. Not unlike Renaissance sculptors, Puckey’s pieces are large, constructed out of marble, and often involve female nudes. Yet at the same time the objects presented in the sculptures are fiercely contemporary - his nudes are holding AK-47s, or are donning the hoods of Abu Ghraib prisoners (edit: of which likenesses Thom went back into the future to collect as the pieces existed before Abu Ghraib).
