NOS op 11 – NOS on 11

An interactive art installation for “NOS op 3” that uses raw video feeds from news agencies around the world.
Project briefing: Design an interactive art installation for “NOS op 3” and Dropstuff that uses raw video feeds, including their meta data, from news agencies around the world. The application has to be interactive. Passers-by should be able to control the installation with their smartphones. We’ve designed an installation inspired by the “Eleven is one louder” scene of Spinal Tap. We’ve added a layer of online information pulled from different online sources (like Google News, Flickr and Last.fm) to the video streams. The amount of added information can be controlled by a knob on the users smartphone. The higher the value, the less relevant the information will become. Adding just noise to the image. API’s used: Twitter, Google Maps, Google News, Flickr, Last.fm Technologies used: Flash as3, HiSlope libary by og2t, Glitch Generator code by Soulwire, JQuery mobile.
