Think outside the box! Think outside the box! Who even told you there is a goddamn box? Reconsider what you parrot. Then, think.

This video titled ‘We Met Heads On’ is my remix of the 3D scan hackathon at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY organised by Makerbot. The public were invited to scan artifacts to then modify and 3d print derivatives. The files ended up on Thingiverse, giving me access to the scans, in particular ‘decimation study - met heads’ by scotta3d which is a derivative from another thingiverse user tbuser. To continue the lineage of derivatives, I have placed the low-polygon heads from scotta3d into a Processing sketch that distorts the meshes in realtime in response to sound and outputs the modified stl objects. The soundwave is analysed from the streaming audio and used to force the mesh to twist to the strength of the soundwave. Performed and recorded in real-time.

Credits.
The song is “Air And Lack Thereof” by James Blake.

I’m not for everyone. I’m barely for me.

Yet a memory cannot be trusted, for so much of the experience of the past is determined by the experience of the present.

Dont you think dreams and the Internet are similar? They are both areas where the repressed conscious mind vents.
