The “Windcuts” are experiments by Miska Knapek in turning sensor data into physical instantiations, viaProcessing and an NC Milling machine (a computer controlled drill, for the rest of us ). Wind movement measurement data (wind direction, velocity and temperature) was used to generate a 3d form, which was then cut out of wood.

this is also excellent. by vladimir todorovic. all of the scenes were generated by Processing
i love the hard transition blips, but i’m not so keen on the overly bright shapes. the monochrome shape, floating above the planet, invokes a sense of fear & doom that i find oddly appealing. it’d be interesting to see what one could do using just sound files/images available from nasa’s archives. possible future assignment?
