Designed by artist Néill O'Dwyer, the prototype for Megapixel has now been built by revolver
We have built a low-budget prototype of the video wall using an Arduino board and a small array of RGB LEDs.
The video files are processed using open source tools such as Processing and the Java programming language. The images are deliberately pixelated. They are broken into a grid and the colours within each box are averaged.
Five percussionists, a bass player and two vocalists performed the Afro-Cuban song “Compa Galletano” over a Guaguancó rumba rhythm.
Two digital media artists and one programmer used electronic sensors and motion-tracking techniques to drive a live video performance which took the audience on a unique journey to the roots of Afro-Cuban music.
The performance took place on Thursday April 29th 2010 as part of Project Brand New 5 in the Project Arts Centre in Dublin's Temple Bar.
In January 2010 we were given the task of rebuilding the Doylescapes website to make it more Google friendly. All of the text and links on the site were contained in a Flash animation which made it difficult for Google to analyse the site.
The UCD Humanities Institute launched a major digitisation project called the Irish Virtual Library and Archive (IVRLA) in 2005. The college has been digitising and cataloguing important research archives such as the Papers of Michael Collins and The Beckett Country Collection. The digitised objects are stored using Fedora Commons, a digital archiving tool. The aims of the project are to provide increased access to these valuable resources, while at the same time protecting the physical artefacts.
