Forest scene for the Spa Water installation

Circus Family celebrates rainwater and Sinterklaas

2017.06.27

Circus Family, an audiovisual design studio in Amsterdam, used Vuo to create two projects that enchanted their audiences. These are two of several projects where Circus Family used Vuo. In The Rain Project, raindrops created a display of images, light, and sound in a natural forest, and in the Hema Sintersizer, children created songs with a giant music-making machine during the Dutch children's celebration, Sinterklaas. To learn more, about I interviewed Circus Family's Cas Dekker.

Art of light and shadows by Xavier Boyaud

"J’utilise la lumière et l’image comme matières premières dans mon travail de recherche et de création." ("I use light and image as raw materials in my work of research and creation.") This is how Xavier Boyaud — a self-taught visual artist, lighting designer, scenographer, and videographer — describes his work. Vuo is one of the tools that Xavier uses to sculpt light and image.

Justin Beardsell (@meno) is collaborating with Dolby to bring a new clubbing experience to Ministry of Sound in London — and he's using Vuo behind the scenes.

Rallentando is an interactive installation that uses Vuo to invoke a multi-sensory virtual forest. Using a combination of images, sounds, and interactive performance, "the audience experiences a gradual slackening of tempo, leaving behind the distractions of contemporary urban life."

Rallentando was created by Gwenyth Dobie, with William Mackwood (@wmackwood) leading the technical integration. Gwenyth and William, co-artistic directors of Out of the Box Productions, recently installed Rallentando at Hub14 in Toronto.

The play "The Floor: Shopping Rolls Camouflaged" is a foray into a surreal world of gravity-defying motion. By turns funny, poignant, and exuberant, the performance blends the human with the technological. Vuo plays a major role in this performance written and directed by Teo Dumski.

An interview with VJ Satoshi: rendering 50,000 particles with Vuo

2015.02.12

Meet Satoshi. He's been VJing for 3 years, and one year ago he created the VJ group M.U.//Mikudarihan Uppercut. When performing live, Satoshi likes to begin with a minimal set of materials, then transform them over the course of the show in a way that tells a story. This style of performing has led Satoshi to seek out a creative platform that is, in his own words, "fast and light."
