EmoCapsule.com Accepted to SIGGRAPH ‘08 Comments | Jun 24 2008

SIGGRAPH 2008 

An update on Emocapsule.com, with great news our group has been ACCEPTED to take part in SIGGRAPH 2008 being hosted in LA. We will be presenting the week of August 11 - 15 at Los Angeles Convention Centre. This is big news, for those unaware as to what SIGGRAPH (short for Special Interest Group on GRAPHics and Interactive Techniques) is a Internation Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactivity Techniques which is being hosted at the LA Convention Center during August 11 - 15 2008. In 2005 25 000 people attended the conference, this is something to be pumped about being accepted to.

EmoCapsule is a study of interactivity. Participants influence the installation by inputting their emotions at emocapsule.com. The website provides users with emotional statistics and trends based on frequency, location, and weather information collected. The installation is dynamically updated to reflect the dominant emotional mood. 

Visitors interact with the current emotional state of the EmoCapsule installation - depicted through sound, text, and colour. Participants move and catch emotion words using their own silhouette and other objects. Participants make loud noises, triggering the installation to emit reactive sounds and display new words. These form a sort of conversation between the user and the installation space. 

 

So if you will please check out Emocapsule.com and or the SIGGRAPH website. With Love JSHAW and the EmoCapsule Team

I ♥ Information and Statistics Comments | May 04 2008

Working on EmoCapsule.com I’d often browse Information Aesthetics. With EmoCapsule.com I’ve been working with organizing and visualizing online data and found this blog that just shows what seems like millions of ways through very visually pleasing ways display almost any type of information…. I Love Information especially when it looks nice. I recommend everyone check this blog out Information Aesthetics.

We all love NEW(s) things Comments | Nov 15 2007

It has been a while since I have posted anything. Mainly it is because school has picked up greatly and I’ve started a new job.

Our senior Project is slowly making progress, it still doesn’t look like too much is going on but there is! Take a gander at Emocapsule.com . I am harvesting weather data and location data from various sites storing it in our DB allowing for the collection of statistics and information comparing location, time, weather and emotions. I am also playing around with the Google maps API to use with displaying the gathered information. I have never really used that much JavaScript or played around with AJAX so it is a good excuse to learn some interesting technologies.

A few friends and I  have started another blog called Doin’ Work. The name comes from the sayings of Rob and Big. The blog is just for fun and should be taken lightly.

On the music side of things, Gold Front Records has been playing some shows here in Ottawa. Our great friend DJ Barletta has been poppin’ up in blogs with some of his mixes like he owns the internet (which he does). His Daft Punk RMX was featured in MissingToof a few weeks back along side sebastiAn and Justice remixes. Here is the RMX again along with his new Ocelot mix!

LoSforzo - Ocelot (DJ Barletta Remix)

JFK, former DFA1979 basest and member of the revolutionary MSTRKRFT has started doing some solo production. Some of my favorite so far are the Space Cowboy mix and the Bloc Party FLUX mix. Check them out below!

Summer is winding down… Comments | Aug 24 2007

With one week of work left the anticipation of school is finally catching up to me. I am actually very excited to be heading back to Ottawa for school. This year will be busy, being my final year. I am however ready for the hectic schedules and busy nights. For a current look at our thesis project and blog please take the time to check out EmoCapsule.com.

LA is no longer happening. There are so many oppertunities available in Ottawa during the first week of September I just couldn’t miss them.

I am currently reading Wikinomics How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything by Don Tapscott and Anthony D. Williams. I was really interested when they started talking about the remix culture. They were referencing The Gray Album by Danger Mouse and a bunch of other projects. I am guessing that the Electro/House remix scene was a bit smaller than the hip-hop one they mentioned.

Here is some music…
Not all of these songs are remixes or mash-ups, there just good tunes!

The Bell - I Am History
The Bell Myspace

Scissors For Lefty - Next To Argyle

Kid Sister VS. Chris Carter - Control VS. Misnomer (JDE Mash)

Whitney Houston - I’m Every Woman(VNDLSMRemix)

Feist - 1234(VanSheTechnologicRemix)

Ottawa Again Comments | Jul 27 2007

It will seem that late last night it was decided that I will head up to Ottawa for the weekend with a few good friends to do some more visiting.  Cam, Matt and I will be making out way up tonight probably hit Zaphods and the diner. Immaculate Machine is playing Zaphods tonight, hopefully we’ll be up early enough to catch the show.

Immaculate Machine - Broken Ship

Immaculate Machine - Phone No.

I was working on my portfolio for jordanshaw.com last night transfering all of the files and database information. I need to populate my portfolio and fix some bugs with the CSS and PHP. Generally everything is comming along.

In relation to EmoCapsule.com I am hoping to have the background images change depending on the most popular emotion entered. I was also thinking using Yahoo Weather XML of keeping track of a user submitted emotion in relation to their current weather condition in their area. This is just a thought…

At the moment I am looking forward to the Daft Punk concert at Arrow Hall in Toronto on Aug 5th. Its hard to tell but I may even be more excited about the after party at Mod Club hosted by A.D/D and Ed Banger at ModClub!

Here are some good songs I’ve been listening to recently.

The Libertines - The HA HA Wall (Kissy Sell Out Remix)

UFFIE - The Party (LA Riots RMX)

Everyone Enjoy the weekend, I know I will!
