Rhonda a 3D drawing tool that Amit Pitaru have developed since 2003. Rhonda is built with Open Frameworks, an open source C++ framework for artists and designers. I’ve installed the software on my PC and tested it. It’s a very strange feeling because it’s not a common way of using touch pad and keyboard but it’s a very interesting new approach. Just try it!
Apparently a team has been created to go further with this project that was just shown in galleries, museums, festivals and conferences. If like me you like creativity, just discover with me all contributors of this project. They are simply amazing!
|Amit Pitaru||A classically trained musician, AMIT PITARU (1974-) strives to create interactive animations with the same fluency as music both in his own web projects and his collaborations with James Paterson. Read complete biography on Design Museum web site.|
|Zach Lieberman||Zachary Lieberman’s work uses technology in a playful and enigmatic way to explore the nature of communication and the delicate boundary between the visible and the invisible. Read his complete autobiography.|
|James Paterson||Both in his collaborative work with Amit Pitaru and solo projects for http://www.presstube.com, James Paterson (1980-) applies the visual fluency of off-line illustration to the web. Read the complete biography on Design Museum web site.|
|Zach Gage||Zach Gage is a designer, programmer, and conceptual artist from New York City. His work may seem to be very abstract. Perhaps you won’t be able to appreciate his antagonistic books! But I’m sure you will be surprised and interested by one of his projets. Just explore his personal web site.
He is the creator of the iPhone application called SynthPond. Watch the video (if like me you don’t have the iPhone) to understand what for is relaxing spatial sequencer and audio toy. Navigation is quite interesting to analyze. As you may read on the Zach Gage blog, this application can work with Pure Data or MAX/MSP. Do you know this application? No? … Interactive visual programming environment for music, audio, and media in real time… Not interested?
|Ralph Hauwert||At least once, any actionscript developer has read a post written by Ralp Hauwert on his blog Unitzeroone. Ralph Hauwert is a Dutch Flash Platform expert. He works as a freelance consultant and developer using such technologies as Papervision3D, ActionScript, and AIR. Read the complete biography on FITC web site|
Intersilence is one of the most representative project done by Amit Pitaru and James Paterson. Do you know that Björk worked with them? Select the Björk Pagan Poetry project. Visually it’s very closed of what can be done with Rhonda.
I just wanted to finish my post with that open source C++ toolkit for creative coding. I don(t have time to explore this toolkit, but I don’t abandon the idea. By the way if you want to explore openFramework, search in the online documentation and buy the O’Reilly book ‘Programming Interactivity‘ by Joshua Noble.
I really recommend Rhonda!.Forever of course!
