Hello. I'm Jaymie. This is Steve. We're part of the team that develops Vuo, a software tool for doing creative work. We'll be showing you how you can use Vuo to make your own graphics, display them on a dome, and interact with them.
I find it easier to explain what Vuo can do through examples, so let's start with that.
This composition was created by William J Mackwood. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
It demonstrates the 'nature movement' used in "Rallentando, a restoration" project by Out of the Box Productions. You may use any element of it. Note that the leaves and grass move as if in a gentle breeze, the upper right corner clouds evolve, and there are random birds flying through the scene.
It will open with a Display Console Window with this message, simply delete the Display Console Window node after reading.
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.
