Interactive flower
Arduino, 3D-print, electronics
2016

When you watering the flower a sensor detects how much water there is in the pot. A sensor are sensoring the waterlevel in the pot which is controlling an Arduino that controls a 3D-printed wheel that pulls the artificial flower and gets it to rise. There is a hole in the pot where the flower is placed that makes the water to drain again. As the pot is drained from water, the flower is wilting and needs to be watered again to rise.

The project is not yet completed. Built for a cultural festival in Gothenburg

I didn’t found an image and video viewer that contained all of the criterias I wanted so I programmed my own. The program links photos and videos from different locations on your.

The program lets you besides linking images and video files, create loops and save loop points, filter the display of images or videos, view photos as thumbnails and fullscreen and renaming your gallery.

Knitted stretch-sensor
Max/MSP/Jitter – conductive yarn
2011

A sensor, knitted with conductive yarn. Conductive yarn is a yarn that conducts electricity. The conductive yarn that is used to knit the stretch sensor has a high resistance, that decreases when stretched.

The changes in the knitting are pulled into MAX through an Arduino.

Arduino is an single-board microcontroller, designed to make the process of using electronics in multidisciplinary projects more accessible.

The test-software is built in MAX.

Piano-strike
Max/MSP/Jitter
2011

Piano-strike is built in Max/Msp/Jitter.

A LED-matrix depicting what is in front of it.

Motion in front of the led-matrix controls a piano that can be played in the air. Motion from left to right corresponds to a pitch from low to high.

This is a prototype built in Max/MSP/Jitter that will be replaced by a physical led-matrix.

Himmel och Helvete
Max/MSP/Jitter
2011
Teater Aktör

The project builds on audience participation and can be seen as metaphor on several levels; locations, feelings and experiences, real and fictitious stages. What is heaven / hell in your life? Dream / nightmare? Fiction / reality? What are the limits for normal-abnormal, intelligence, madness, ill-healthy?

I participated in the construction of the show with interactive video, sounddesign and as soundengineer.

I constructed several patches with Max/MSP/Jitter for the show:

Live-greenscreen
The participants where cut through green-screen and recorded live into a cloud landscape.

Videomixer
A patch for mixing three different sources of video with the possibility of automate the videomixing.

Videotrigger
Motiondetection-patch. Video and audio changes and interference occur when someone moves within a specified area.
