For the seventh edition of Coded Matter(s) we collaborated with Mexican interaction designer Josué Ibáñez. We’re honoured to present the application which he created based on the theme Extended Senses. With the use of this environment we created the visual identity, flyers, video bumpers and sound design for the event scenography. The application, which was created using TouchDesigner, can be downloaded for your own enjoyment and discovery. The sound design was made by Mexican sound producer Eduardo Jiménez.
How to use
In this project you’ll find a folder divided in two parts. The TouchDesigner project includes all the textures in hi-res format created previously in an analog format in collaboration with the Mexican artist Dhear. The .TOE file is ready to edit and play with as well as the audio project in a MAX/MSP format.
To start interacting with the immersive environment, open the audio file from MAX/MSP and then the .TOE file in TouchDesigner. You can navigate into different cameras of the scene using the “+” buttons located at the top of the application.
We strongly recommend the use of headphones when you explore the project.
Since this is one of our first projects in TouchDesigner, Josué and Eduardo are pretty sure there are some bugs and several ways to improve our project. They encourage you to send them suggestions for improvements or questions to the following e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
