Building as Narrative

Blake Carrington gives a building a new narrative based on its structural composition with his "Cathedral Scan" project.

"Cathedral Scan" translates the architectural plans of Gothic cathedrals into open-ended musical scores via custom software. Treating the plans as a kind of map, in the live performance Carrington navigates through them to create diverse rhythms, drones and textures."

 

A Pro

Stefanie Posavec's website is a cool collection of  info design. The iPhone app she created maps key themes and tags within a book on a circular index by character, subject and emotion. Circular 'maps' seem to be popular these days...another design group's work here.

nyc subway

Conductor turns the New York subway system into an interactive string instrument. Using the MTA’s actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop. The visuals are based on Massimo Vignelli’s 1972 diagram.
