ACP Donor Wheel 

Commissioned by the Arts Council of Princeton, the ACP Donor Wheel is a permanent donor recognition sculpture for the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts in Princeton, NJ. Placed in the building’s rotunda/lobby is a motorized disk, on which are placed approximately 2000 names, loosely grouped by the first letter of the donor’s last name. Adjacent to the sculpture is a control panel with a button for each letter of the alphabet (excluding Q and X). When a viewer wishes to find a particular name, he or she pushes the corresponding letter on the control panel. The disk rotates and stops at the requested letter and displays all the names corresponding to the requested letter by back-lighting them with white LEDs. joshuakirsch.com/acp.html

Night Walk in Marseille

In close relationship with MediaMonks, yellowBird, part of Getlogic group of companies,  is proud to announce an new 360º project for Google: the Marseille Nightwalk. The Night Walk is a loosely guided tour through the streets of Marseille on one vibrant and beautiful evening. Night Walk starts you out in a small alley in the neighborhood Cours Julien and works a lot like Street View — you can look around in every direction and click wherever you want to zoom in or move ahead. In this case, a tour guide will introduce you to the city as you move along, directing you to look at art, landmarks, and gorgeous views, among much more.

Aguasonic Acoustics, Beautiful Visualizations of Animal Sounds

The sounds of birds, dolphins, and whales are represented in beautiful circular visualizations in the series“Aguasonic Acoustics” by artist and software designer Mark Fischer. To generate the images, Fischer designed software that processes the sounds using a mathematical procedure called a wavelet. He believes his visualizations are a more comprehensive way to analyze animal sounds than the traditional method, the spectrogram.
